Save $30 on Apple's new 2021 iPad: $299 at Amazon

    I put a screen protector on my Air, mostly for anti-glare and to change the feel/texture of the screen. The glass on the Air is extremely shiny and reflective and prone to pretty bad glare.

    I bought a 2-pack of Tech Armor HD Anti-glare /anti-fingerprint screen protectors off Amazon. I use the same ones on my iPhone, and my girlfriend uses them on her iPhone and iPad Air as well. The matte finish makes the surface feel much smoother, and sliding fingers across the screen is a much better experience versus the naked screen, in my opinion.

    Between the reduction in glare, and the smoother feel on the screen... The added protection is just a bonus. Haha
    That's interesting. I've always thought the glass felt much smoother than any screen protector. It's good we all have choices though.

    Under any other circumstances, I'd agree with you 100%

    Try the Tech Armor screen protectors. The Anti-Glare Anti-fingerprint ones they sell are the smoothest I've ever felt... and they are cheap.

    Anti-Glare always means Matte, am I right?

    Seems that Matt makes the iPad screens, or any screen for that matter, grainy.

    I just got my Moshi ivisor AG today and I think it is great. A fringe benefit is that I got black to convert my 128gb silver iPad Air to one with a black bezel which I prefer. The white home button looks pretty sharp as well.

    Depends if you care about resale value. I've put PowerSupport crystal films on all my iPhones and iPad. Definitely worth it.

    I intend to keep mine until it's dead so no need for screen protection since I have it in a case.

    I have never used one on any of my iPads and I won't either on this one. Never have scratched any. I believe they are a waste of money.

    Some believe they are a waste of money. However, after scratching my first iPad I like the added protection that they offer. I have my new Moshi screen protector sitting here waiting to be applied but I can't take my iPad Air out of the original plastic wrap until my case arrives.

    I'm usually pretty careful with my stuff so i've never used a screen protector for any of my iPad's. Only on my iPhones.

    I'm currently testing a screen protector that Anker sent me to review. So far, so good. Installation was surprisingly easy, no bubbles which is a deal breaker for me. I'll post a full review in a week of so!

    I am using with all my devices anti glare matte protector - iPad, iPhone, iPod. I love the feeling of it and the anti glare is wonderful and it saved my screens several time from scratches and being broken.
    Here is a link to the ipad product, it is very cheap

    Probably don't need one, but it certainly doesn't hurt to have one on. If you're prone to dropping things, a good screen protector can help against cracking, shattering along with a decent case.

    Choose a good quality, clear screen protector. One that doesn't distort or alter the retina screen.

    Can't say they are good or bad, it's matter of choice. Protection is always good, but haven't put one on my ipad yet and it still looks as good as it did the day I took it out of the box.

    I put on a protector I got from Amazon. 7 dollars for two front protectors. It feels like there is no protector on, besides the obvious points around the home button and front camera. Will probably get one for the back at some point soon too.

    Screen protectors ruin the feel IMO. They're not needed...

    I need to purchase a screen protector from amazon, any recommendations. Looking for one that'll cause the least air bubbles and easiest to put on as I'm horrible with putting these on. I'm also using an apple ipad case.

    I just ordered the iSmooth Ultra Clear Screen Protector for the iPad Air, cost $12.97 for 2 of them. Hopefully I chose the right one. By the way I'm horrible at putting these on, wonder if Apple would do it lol.

    I don't use screen protectors on my iPad for some reason. I just never thought about getting one. I have a Smart Cover anyway so I don't think that i would need one.

    You should try a Sleepshield. Its supposed to block the blue light that keeps us up at night but I use it as a screen protector as well. I purchased a SleepShield for my iphone, ipad and macbook air and it seriously works. Lately I am waking up feeling more refreshed after using my iPad late into the night.

    That's what I think too, screen protectors are good but a waste of money really if we all think about it.

    My iPad Air 2 I had since October is perfect still with no protector on. I do have the smart case so it's covered when not in use
