Here are the top iPad 2 screen protector and anti-glare. The iPad 2 screen is such a great thing to look at and it’s nearly perfect now that it goes all of the way to the edge of the iPad without that metal lining around it. But there are times when you want to make sure it’s protected or reduce the glare and here are some of the ways to do that.
iPad 2 Screen Protector And Anti-Glare
Much like the original iPad, the iPad 2 screen is made of glass and as you know, glass is very reflective so it can be tough to read or view content when near a light or direct sunlight. Additionally, there are those that feel compelled to put some protection on their iPad 2 screen mostly because they want to reduce the smudges and/or protect it from breakage.
Here are some of the products available right now that you can get to protect your screen and/or reduce glare which are made specifically for the iPad 2.
iLuv Glare-Free iPad 2 Screen Protector
The iLuv Glare-free iPad 2 screen protector runs about $12 and most reviewers say that you get what you pay for. It is definitely a screen protector but apparently not a lot of people are pleased with it. However, it is not that expensive so it’s a great entry-level product if you are not sure you want to have screen protection or not.
splash Masque Screen Protector
The splash Masque is so new that there are not a lot of reviews yet but their other products seem to do fairly well. For about $19 you get a 3-pack of these iPad 2 screen protector. One thing to keep in mind is that these are mainly protection so their primary function is not for anti-glare. One other thing is that this particular screen protector is that it is not compatible with the first-gen iPad.
LifeGuard Screen Protector Films
Here is a better rated iPad 2 screen protector than the first two. It sells for around $15 and it is more geared toward both protection and anti-glare. This means that it is a good one to get if you do a lot of reading and want to cut down some glare from lights.
The customer feedback on this one has been semi-favorable. One thing to note is that with this one and some of the others, you have to apply them in such a way as to get the air bubbles out and that can frustrate people when it is not applied correctly.
Great Shield Ultra Anti-Glare Screen Protector
As the title suggests this is definitely a screen protector geared more towards keeping the glare down. These are about $18 and they claim that it can be removed and washed for reuse! Because this is a hybrid screen protector it is perfect for those looking to cut down on glare while protecting their screen. It claims to provide 3X anti-glare protection, or Matte and it also comes with 3 of them in the pack (along with a micro-fiber cleaning cloth).
Now here is something a bit different. This is a really nice iPad 2 screen protector that has great ratings and it covers not just the front but the back as well. There are some significant advantages with the Skinomi such as full protection and the easy installation.
This is the only protector that’s also perfectly compatible with the iPad 2 Smart Cover. The Skinomi Carbon Fiber Series Protector Film is a break-though in mobile protection technology. By utilizing state-of-the-art materials, the film offers effective damage protection without adding additional weight or bulk to your device. Essentially, you get the protection of a durable case without the excess weight.
This is probably one of the most popular iPad screen protector on the market, but ironically does not get the best reviews. It’s main purpose is protection, not anti-glare, although it will still provide some anti-glare.
The reason most people buy the Zagg is for protection from scratches, and that’s what Zagg does the best. These are $30 and some people rave about them while others simply don’t like them. If you have used a Zagg on your phone then it’s pretty much the same product, just bigger!
So there are some of the top iPad 2 Screen protector and anti-glare protectors. There will be more and we will cover them as they come out. It would appear that if you are looking for just anti-glare, then the Great Shield is the best choice and if you are looking for maximum protection then the Skintomi is the next best choice.
