As the sequel to last year's Anti-Glare Film for iPad, Power Support's new HD Anti-Glare Film for iPad 2 ($35) has jumped $10 in price from the prior version without gaining any pack-ins or other frills -- the cardboard shipping sleeve contains only a single sheet of film, and instructions on how to install it. On the plus side, the HD Anti-Glare Film remains top-notch -- perfectly tailored to the iPad 2's screen as the last one was for the iPad, and with the lowest overall prismatic distortion of the anti-glare films we've tested. On the other hand, there's no obvious difference between the "HD" and non-HD films, and the price is now considerably higher than the extremely similar Ultra Fine anti-glare film sold by United SGP, which is bundled with a squeegee and cleaning cloth. The dollar's weak strength against the yen in Power Support's native Japan is most likely to blame for the price increases.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
