Screen Protector (2-Pack) w/ Cleaning Cloth for iPad® 2, iPad 3, iPad 4- Matte Finish
(the New iPad)
|iPad Air™||iPad Air 2|
Protect the screen on your iPad 2, New iPad (aka iPad 3), or iPad With Retina Display (aka iPad 4) from scratches and fingermarks with a Monoprice protective screen film. This screen protector is sized to perfectly fit your iPad 2, iPad 3, or iPad 4 and comes with a Matte finish, which reduces glare and reflections, yet allows the full spectrum of colors to shine through in all their original glory.
While the film will adhere to the screen, it will not leave any resins or residue when removed. The packaging includes a lint-free cleaning cloth, to ensure that the screen is clean before applying the film. Each order includes two protective screen films.

- Protective screen film
- Lint-free cleaning cloth
How to apply the Screen Protective Film to your phone:
- Please turn the device off. Clean the surface of the touch screen with the cloth provided in a dust-free environment. Please do not use cleaning agents.
Start by folding down the backing layer. Avoid touching the back of the film, which may leave your fingerprints on it, peel off about an inch. Make sure the adhesive side is facing down.
Note: Removing the backing all at once may cause static that could attract unwanted dust.
Apply the film with adhesive side toward the screen. Align the screen protector with the screen edge and place it in position by applying light pressure to the film at the point of contact (front side).
Work your way across the screen, slowly pulling the backing layer off.
Be sure not to leave any bubbles on the screen surface as you go. If you have any air bubbles when finished, see below.
If you notice bubbles as you go, pull back and retry. If it's caused by dirt, attempt to lightly flick it off or use the sticky side of a piece of tape, (clothes lint roller tape is best).
Apply light pressure evenly across the surface until the film is completely adhered. If no dirt is present, very small air bubbles may dissipate in a few days.
PROS: Great product
I shopped around and bough a medium priced screen protector from a large on-line store based in the South American rain forest. But returned this shortly after I found a few problems. The first was distorted view through the protector, which made the Retina look very distorted. Also the application of the protector was difficult since it was on a vinyl backing.
The Monoprice version here is much better on all fronts. First is the value, it's the best price I've seen so I decided to try it out. Receiving the protector, I was happy to see it's on a thicker plastic "mounting" cover instead of the flexible vinyl protector like the other brand. I had a similar protector like this for my iPhone and made installation so much easier. You peel back one side of the protector, the thicker protector sheet allows you to position the protector easier since it doesn't flex as much.
Another big plus is the protector feels thicker, I'm not sure on the exact mils, but it's doesn't feel like it would turn over on the edges as easy when worn down. The mounting is also nice, doesn't ask for you to use water or anything, just clean the screen and apply. The matte finish was really nice change and my wife mentioned that the movement on the screen feels so much easier, you don't have that "sticky" feel with the bare screen.
About the only con I can see is that matte finish is more easy to scratch or see scratches on the protector. I used a tablet pen and this makes a contact point on the edge of the tip of the pen. Since this pen is using a harder plastic tip, any grit under the pen tip will scrape the protector. Normally, under use of the finger, this shouldn't pose a problem. But even if you wear through screen protectors every few months, these cost so little, I would still recommend them.
