    AFAIK the iPad2 screen is NOT scratch proof. Get a screen protector for your iPad. There are scads of them available.

    Check out ZAGG.com for a very nice choice.

    Scratch proof?... I doubt it. At least I have heard no claims from Apple that it is. It is glass, so it would be naturally more resistant to scratches than plastic, but I certainly would not call it scratch proof.

    do you recommend any screen-protectors? (preferably without air bubbles)

    I use the PowerSupport Crystal on both our iPads and iPhones. They hold up very well and are easy to apply.

    My favorite protectors come from http://www.screenpatronus.com but they won't have them for a few more weeks. They are so easy to work with. If you get a bubble (or dust under the screen), just take a piece of scotch tape and raise a corner, then smooth it back out. No heavy glue. I have even removed them, and stuck them to a clean mirror and put them back on bubble free with a GPS I had to return twice. I have mine on order.

    PS, they one on my iPad1 has been on there for a year, and it has minor scratches, but still looks GREAT!

    As I posted earlier, the ZAGG screen protector is amazing - IMO. If you follow the instructions (you can watch a video online) and apply it correctly, you will not get bubbles.

    This particular protector is applied wet with a solution supplied with the screen protector. If you apply it according to the directions and let the iPad sit for the amount of time suggested to allow the protector to adhere properly, you will not have one single bubble. I have no bubbles at all under my ZAGG screen protector.

    No. My opinion is they don't help, and frankly, make the iPad messy. I have never scratched any iPad or iPhone I have ever had. I am slightly more concerned about the back than the screen. So I bought a sleeve to carry it around.

    I used to think the same way as you. I too have a Targus case that I carry my iPad around in and I love it as well. If you are very careful, I agree with you - a screen protector is not needed. But the peace of mind I get with my ZAGG and the fact that I am no longer obsessed with cleaning my fingerprints off of the iPads screen, makes using the screen protector worthwhile.

    DCGOO is correct, but you are wrong...

    The glass tech incorporated in iPad and iPad 2 screen is gorilla strong. People are having really hard time trying to scrach the thing unless you try rubbing it hard with sand or diamond. Read this:

    You are better off without the protector cover for the screen. I've learned the hard way. Like what DCGOO said, you may want to worry about protecting the back side of the device. iPod Touch 4 was stupidly delicate on backside. iPad 2 is better but still, can easily be scratched, which is why I got the iPad case instead. This is peace of mind. ZAGG is overpriced unnecessary junk.

    The OP was asking for opinions Mr. Know It All. I never said that is was or was not definitively scratch proof

    Having a really hard time scratching the glass and being "scratch proof" are two different things Mr Know It All.
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-2-forum/21326-ipad-2-does-scratch-easily.html

    I didn't see anything in the article saying that the glass is totally "scratch proof".

    One last time Mr. Know It All ... the OP asked if the glass is "scratch proof" then asked for our opinions on protectors.

    That doesn't mean you are the definitive expert. I'm not and do not claim to be.

    DCGOO had an opinion (as stated). Opinions are not correct or incorrect.
    The glass tech incorporated in iPad and iPad 2 screen is gorilla strong.

    ?
    So you work for marketing/PR for Corning?
    How exactly is glass "gorilla strong"? What does that mean?
    People are having really hard time trying to scrach the thing unless you try rubbing it hard with sand or diamond

    if it was scratch proof, it could not be scratched with anything.

    It's on the Internet so it must be true, right?
  • goodolcheez Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Didn't mean to jump on you like that.. Sometimes I jump over the conclusion too easily...

    I can't say it's completely scratch proof because there are materials out there that can / will scratch ipad's gorilla glass. It is definitely highly scratch resistant.
  • bendotson Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    "Scratch resistant" is the term. do not waste time or money getting a screen protector. The touch experience without one is far superior. My 4 year old daughter has played with my original iPad since day one without a screen protector and there is not a scratch on it.

    I am considering getting one of the anti-glare display protectors. Many of the mentioned brands offer this option. This reduces the glare from sunlight or other bright light.

    I have used display protectors on a number of iOS devices and am pleased with the results. The displays are as pristine as the day they were unboxed. The displays show less fingerprinting then the iPad's natural surface and I do not find that they interfere with the capacitive interface of the touch display in the slightest.

    Those who have opinions against the protectors are almost as rabid as exsmokers are against smoking!
