The 3rd generation iPad has been in the market for a couple of months now, and they are selling like hotcakes. The most appealing feature of the new iPad, by far, is its gorgeous screen which Apple calls the Retina Display. iPads don’t come in cheap and the people who buy them using their hard earned money obviously want them to last long. Although Apple claims that the glass they use is scratch resistant and highly durable, a lot of people wouldn’t want to take that chance. If you’re one of those people, you need a good screen protector for your iPad to ease away all your worries about scratching your screen. Apart from protecting the screen, screen protectors are also used to reduce glare. So here’s a roundup of three of the most popular screen protectors available for iPad 3.
Splash Masque screen protectors offer great quality at a competitive price. The company claims that this protector is very easy to install, which is actually true. It attaches itself to the screen surface due to static cling, therefore no adhesives are required and the chances of a bubble-free installation are pretty good. This protector is made up of PET film from Japan, which uses a 3-layer technology. Splash Masque is designed to cut down on glare, and therefore the screen becomes easier to view.
The screen clarity does suffer a bit, but it is not very noticeable. You might also see a little decrease in brightness, and rainbow effects after you install it, but the cost effectiveness of this product more or less makes up for it. It’s available on Amazon at the price of $9.85, and the package has three screen protectors in it. Overall, at that price, Splash Masque is the best screen protector available for your new iPad.
A great product from MediaDevil, the Easyscreen protector is bubble-free and is very easy to install. This screen protector is different from other protectors because it doesn’t really attach itself to the screen. Instead, the outer frame of the protector is attached to your iPad. Since aligning the frame of the protector with the frame of the iPad is simple enough, anyone can easily install it.
Easyscreen comes in a variety of colors. So, if you’re bored of looking at the white frame of your iPad, just buy one of these things. The only drawback of using this screen protector is that it will reduce some of your Retina Display’s clarity. It is available at a rate of $19.85.
NuShield DayVue Antireflective Screen Protector
NuShields creates screen guards for a plethora of products. Its screen protector for iPad has been consistently ranked among the best because of its unobtrusiveness. The NuShield DayVue is particularly useful because of its antireflective quality. This makes your iPad screen easier to see when you’re outdoors. It also helps cut down glare, which is a big problem for most people who use their iPad a lot. It does pick up fingerprints far more easily than the naked screen itself though. If that is a deal breaker for you, don’t purchase this product.
This protector becomes almost invisible after installation, and has very little effect on the clarity of the Retina Display. Overall, DayVue enhances the viewing experience more than it affects it, because of the antireflective quality. You get greater viewing angles, a lot of glare reduction and of course, protection from scratches. The price of DayVue screen protector is $22.
There are tons of other screen protectors available in the market, but these three take the cake in terms of cost effectiveness, ease of installation and the benefits they offer.
