    Default Screen protector for iPad 3: Yes or No?

    I've always put a screen protector on my iPads. Now that I have the iPad 3, I'm not sure if I want to do that with my Retina display. Will you be putting a screen protector on your iPad 3? Anyone had any scratches on their iPad without a screen protector? Finally, are there any screen protectors that don't diminish the awesomeness of the Retina display?

    I use a Zagg screen protector for my iPhone 4s that works great so I decided to try one for my iPad. So far so good.

    I tried a Zagg screen protector and it distorted the new iPad display. I removed it and will "go brave" until there is something more suitable.

    I dont know why people keep asking this ever since the first iPad. The screen of iPad's are scratch resistant. There is no need for a screen protector on a iPad-Period !! Only sand can scratch it or may be Diamond ! Not in Normal use.

    I'm going to do a side by side with my screen and my sister's to see if there's any distortion.

    The first thing I do is put a protector on. Yes the screen is scratch resistant but it will scratch. Using full body invisashield at the moment.

    No screen protector here. Like Brook Shields and her Calvin Klein jeans, nothing gets between me and my iPad

    Screen protectors are a waste of money.

    When I asked about screen protectors in Apple store, they said they recommend against using them because it alters the quality of the display. on iPhone, yes - the Apple guy had same one I use on 4S. On iPad, no.

    I throw iPhone in my bag, so screen protector is essential. On the other hand, iPad will always be in a case or covered by smart-cover unless I am using it. Have to say I lprefer both displays au naturale - tempted to remove the iPhone screen protector every darn day...

    I don't have a screen protector on my iPad. The way I see it...I have a screen protector on my phone because I carry my phone around everywhere which makes it susceptible to scratches and whatnot. I have a smart cover on my iPad and only carry it when I'm traveling, so no screen protector is needed.

    Why would you spoil it...
    It is a Gorilla Glass product already.
    Have you seen the specs ?
    Do not waste your money on another layer for your screen.

    I am a self-proclaimed klutz. My 2 had a screen protector on it from day one. At some point it ended up with a HUGE scratch across the screen. Pretty sure my son did it, but I know how I am, so I'm not really sure. However, I've seen one of my prior iPhone screens get scratched - they're not indestructible. I was so sure that scratch had gotten down to the screen, but it didn't. That thing was so big, it would've looked horrible on the screen if I hadn't had a screen protector.

    Long story short, those of you who are able to go without screen protectors, I salute you. No way could I do it. Screen still looks great to me with a screen protector, I don't really notice a difference.

    If you use a cheap clear Ebay one, you can tell absolutely no difference in the screen quality. The best screen cover i've seen on an iPhone is the one that comes with otterbox reflex cases.. it's so smooth and clear, no smudges.. it's really nice. 100% clear.

    The ones on ebay for ipad, clear ones, are perfect for me too.. can't even tell they're on there. Now those anti-glare and big expensive thick ones do ruin the quality I think. Especially the ones that are built into otterbox defenders, I usually rip those out and replace them with cheap ebay clear ones.

    I ended up putting an screen protector just for now till I get my gum drop case,which is an hard case with an screen shield included.

    I used one on my iPad 1, but I go without on my iPhone 4 and my The New iPad. I haven't found a protector yet that didn't cause some refraction or distortion of the retina display.

    Default Screen protector

    I am just wondering who uses one on their iPad? I was using a screen protector but it looked like crap after a couple of days and been sporting it without one. I am still using a smart cover.
