Although we've generally preferred anti-glare, anti-smudge films to transparent ones, clear film has been a safer choice for the new iPad due to the prismatic effect we've seen on every anti-glare film we've tested to date. Spigen SGP's Steinheil SQ Ultra Crystal ($22) is a good example of an affordable solution that does the job well. Included in the package are one sheet of film, a polishing cloth, a squeegee, and screen cleaning solution. Installation is easier than some other screen protectors we tested, and the result is a crystal-clear, glossy finish on top of the iPad's display.


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.
