Best iPad Screen Protector Available at Best Buy
Posted by: SputnikBTS from: Albuquerque, NM on
I'm writing this review primarily as a response to the person who gave this one star. These protectors are definitely not for the impatient when it comes to applying them to the iPad. You have to use plenty the spray solution, making sure to spray some on your hands as well, and use the squeegee tool to smooth out as many big bubbles as possible (I put a lint-free cotton cloth under my iPad when I installed it to soak up any extra water that emerged as I smoothed out the bubbles). Then you have to wait. It takes about a day or two for any of the remaining smaller bubbles to disappear, leaving you with a slick, shiny screen.
I'm using mine on a new iPad (with Retina Display), and the HD version is a noticeable improvement over the standard version of the Invisibleshield. There is still a very, very slight orange peel effect, but you can really only see it when you have the iPad screen off (i.e., the screen is black) and if you're looking at it from an angle. Otherwise, the clarity really is very good. Also, the feel of the HD protector is much smoother than the standard Invisibleshield, making it nicer to the touch when playing games and swiping, etc.
The "self-healing" property of the plastic is one reason I continue to use the Invisibleshield line. If you accidentally ding or mar the surface of the protector, it will usually smooth itself out over the course of a few days. These protectors are also very hard to scratch. I have had several on my various devices, and I've never scratched one yet (though I've never purposely dragged a key across one to see if I could).
Finally, the thing has got a lifetime warranty. If you somehow do destroy it or mar it beyond repair, all you have to do it send it back to Zagg and they'll replace it. This is the last screen protector you'll buy for your device.

Good product. The screen clarity isn't compromised and the feel is nice. Paid for the geeks quad installation because I wanted the guarantee of no air pockets. Worth it for me. We will see how long it lasts with my kids using it....

Excellent clarity and Feel
Posted by: Thinheel from: Illinois on
I have not purchased these in the past due to clarity issues. This product however looks as good as the IPad without the shield.
Have the store install for a perfect installation

What took Zagg so long!!
Posted by: Cellphonenut from: Las Vegas on
Zagg finally got the "like glass" surface down pat. After being frustrated with Zagg's original shields the HD version is a great relief. This new protector is as close to maintaining the beautiful stock surface your going to get.

Great product. Much clearer than past designs.

Fantastic product that doesn’t distort the beautiful display of the new iPad. Paid for the GS installation, well worth it. My advice, be patient to let the remaining air bubbles disappear. I left the store without a single bubble in the protector. I let the device sit out overnight with no cover, etc and the next day it looked like a piece of bubble wrap. No worries though after 5 days every bubble disappeared. Just give it ample time.

Works as advertised
Posted by: TexasBavarian from: Frisco, TX on
When you select a screen protector, you have a choice to make – “gloss” or “matt” finish. If you select a matt finish, you won’t have as many fingerprints, but you’ll have some pixilation/distortion of the beautiful HD screen. If you select a gloss finish protector – like the ZAGG Invisible Shield – you’ll have crystal clear viewing, but you’ll have to wipe off fingerprints. The ZAGG screen protector is no worse than other screen protectors for collecting fingerprints, but if having to wipe fingerprints off your screen every once in a while is going to make you crazy, don’t buy this product. For me, I don’t mind cleaning off my screen, and I am rewarded with an exceptionally clear picture.
Seriously, how much can you write about a screen protector? The ZAGG protects the screen, and I’m completely happy with it.
I had my ZAGG screen protector professionally installed at Best Buy, because I wanted it done right the first time. This screen protector requires the installer to spray a fluid onto the screen, and once it’s in place, you aren’t going to have an easy time repositioning or re-installing it. When I got the iPad home and opened the box, I noticed a bunch of small bubbles in the screen – exactly what I DIDN’T want, and why I paid to have it installed. The folks at Best Buy told me that would happen, and that the bubbles would disappear in a day or so. Well, in a day or so, those bubble WERE completely gone – just as the installer said they would be – and I couldn’t be happier with both the product and the installation.
Without question, adding a screen protector to your touchscreen electronic gear MUST be your first accessory. Open the iPad box and before you do anything else, add a screen protector. I not only recommend the ZAGG Invisible Shield, but installation services at Best Buy as well.

Best zagg to date
Posted by: Attguy from: Oxnard ca on
I have always had a zagg screen protector for all my iPhones even on otter box cases. I would rip out the otter box original screen. I zagg because fingerprints are very minimal compared to other screen protectors and anti glare protectors dim the screen. The idea on an hd device is the clarity. I bough the hd screen protector for my iPad new mainly for protection and fingerprints but when I applied it it clearly is the clearest zagg I've had. Installation isn't hard at all as long as you wash your hands and use a lot of spray both on your hands and shield. Line it up and get as many of the big bubbles as possible make sure you have a cloth ready as you get to the edges and home botton because zagg solution will come out and get in your iPad. Zaggs replacement warranty is amazing. Go on their website specify model purchased and you get a confirmation. To make a claim you log in and make a claim sometimes they want you to send a picture. In a couple days you have a new one. A corner peeled on my first iPad and in 3 days I had another one.

Do you really need this?
Posted by: StrykerH from: Danbury, CT on
Even this 'HD' film has the orange peel look. It is very difficult to install, and if you really enjoy the beauty of the retina display, this will kill your joy. Plus, it is very difficult to install, and even a 'professional' install is far from perfect. Did I mention the ridiculous price for a piece of plastic film? My wife has had her iPad for 2 years, no protective film on it, and it looks just as it did when we bought it. I took the mess off my beautiful new iPad 3, and through it away. Save your money, I wish I had. I have one on my iPhone, but only because it spends time in my pocket with coins and keys. But unless you are going to use your iPad at the beach and leave it in the sand next to your blanket, I doubt you really need this just about pointless, overpriced, plastic sheet.

Zagg protector screen
Posted by: Colle from: Lake worth, Florida on
Don't purchase a screen protector for IPad 3. It reduces stunning screen resolution of new IPad. I did, and then removed it.

Really love the look and feel
Posted by: OneOhm from: Seattle, WA on
I have always put screen protectors on my portable electronics. In several cases when I finally went to sell them and pulled off the protector I was amazed how much abuse the protector had absorbed. This one so far still looks brand new. I really like the feel of this. I bought a different brand for my wife's and her screen seems dimmed by it, this one seems so much brighter.
