Power Support Anti-Glare Screen Protector for iPad review

The Power Support Anti-Glare Screen Protector for iPad helps protect screens while reducing some of the glare associated with many Apple products. The two pronged approach should please many iPad users, although sadly all screen protectors are a compromise, distracting from while protecting Apple's seductive 9.7-inch diagonal LED-backlit glossy widescreen. The Power Support film is at least fairly easy and mess free to fit.

You'll need a pair of scissors handy to carefully cut off the top of the cardboard packaging as the glue flap at the bottom can leave sticky marks when you remove the film. With clean hands, lint-free cloth and flat area with ideally the top of the iPad facing you, users can start peeling back the edge of the backing. Before you fit the film, make sure you have it the right way round, careful to avoid covering the home button. With all screens some bubbles do form, but you can start to ease these out once the film is in place. There’s a fair amount of scope for adjusting and realigning the film, although you need to be careful not to make matters worse by touching the adhesive side, which is prone to marking up and clouding.

Power Support Anti-Glare Screen Protector for iPad

A short but useful video tutorial is available online and worth watching. The whole process took less than 15 minutes and produced results which we could live with. For £22.95 we would have liked to have seen a cleaning cloth included in the package, which is essential before you attempt to fit the screen. Additionally the kit only protects the screen and not the back of the iPad, so users may also need to invest in a case or sleeve. The Power Support Anti-Glare Screen Protector for iPad is available from GearZap.com.

OUR VERDICT

The Power Support Anti-Glare Screen Protector is a useful, if not fully essential iPad accessory that does a decent job of reducing glare but a better one at protecting your screen. It's relatively easy to fit or adjust and wipes clean of daily marks and fingerprints, without fear of disintegrating in your hands.
