    best anti glare screen protector?

    Looking for the best screen protector for my a500. I would like to be able to read outside, in the car, in bright rooms, etc. It is impossible to do with the tab as is or with a regular protector! The less it distorts the screen resolution the better, but I'm sure that is a given. Thanks so much in advance!

    Thanks Rob. Ordered a couple for my tablets. Having reduced glare will be nice.

    screen protector

    I am sure that there are other as good, but I have this brand on my A500's and other devices. One is about a year old and still perfect. I purchased a 3 pack for each tablet, thinking they would wear quickly. I still have a pile of unopened packages as the original shield is still on each tablet. They went on with zero bubbles and fit very well. The surface is super smooth on the fingers, but there is a reduction in screen brightness (as to be expected) I like the matte finish.

    Rob, I got the screen protectors. They are pretty easy to put on, if you lock yourself in the bathroom. 1 spec of dust is a bubble that can't be removed. I ended up with a few tiny bubbles on each, but they really can't be seen after a day. They work fantastic with the glare, but you do sacrifice a little screen clarity.

    I think that is that case with all screen protectors (clarity), I guess as long as they work is ok since you can adjust the display brightness on the tab.

    Thanks for reporting though.

    I finally put on the PosRUs anti-glare protector after switching from the Acase standard one. The glare improvement is wonderful, as well fingerprints are not as noticeable although I use a stylus. I have one of the great shield protectors on a different device, and it seems to me to PosRUs protector has less of an effect on screen quality. I'm actually quite pleased....

    Although I would have never named my company PosRUs, Pos has a bad meaning most of the time.... :-)

    PS good trick if you have a piece of dust after application, use a piece of Scotch tape to lift the protector very slightly, and slide a different piece of tape underneath to catch the dust ... works wonders!

    Do these screen protectors hamper in any way the sensitiveness of the touch screen? I too find reading stuff on the A500 a real pain when outside - in tropical countries it is a real problem as you can very well imagine. I have been thinking about screen protectors, but have shied away from them thus far.

    Edit: I too prefer matte screens, which is what I have on my laptops. Can't tabs be made with matte screens or with some screen technology that either kills or reduces the glare. Turning up the brightness of the screen is all and well, but if I am working outside for over 7-8 hours, I find my battery seriously depleted and I really don't want to cart around Acer's bulky charger.

    No it doesn't hamper any of the sensitivity of the screen. Screen Protectors were made to protect your tablet. Here is a sample photo of how the different screen protectors will look on your screen.
    Thanks. Can't work out the glare comparison from the pic. Would it be possible for you to put up a bigger (and/ or better) image? Cheers!
