Expensive for Vanilla

"AmazonBasics Screen Protector and Cleaning Cloth for Apple iPad"includes everything you need to protect your expensive iPad investment from scratching. The application process should be completed with a minimal amount of steps:

1. The chamois square cleans the iPad screen before the application of the plastic screen protector.

2. A pull tab indicates which of the plastic covers to remove first; once this is done, the exposed side of the protector is applied to the screen with the enclosed squeegee. This aspect of the task takes precision and time to accomplish as bubbles form in the seal if not perfectly fitted. The squeegee(a plastic card the size of a credit card) could be a little more substantial--more heft to the card may allow a little more pressure to be applied to the seal as the bubbles are spread towards the edge of the screen. This was not the easiest part of the process to achieve and I had to remove the sheet a few times before I got it on with a minimal amount of air pockets--all of which I did NOT completely remove even after using the squeegee extensively.

3. Once the screen protector is affixed to the iPad, it is easy to remove the second of the plastic covers by just pulling the white indicator and peeling it away carefully.

Unfortunately, if the cover is not placed on the iPad immediately, the risk of denting the plastic becomes more of a possibility. I dented mine easily by just holding it incorrectly.

Bottom line? This AmazonBasics kit is just that: basic. It will protect your iPad screen from scratching. However, the application is not that simple to achieve and the price should be cut in half to make the whole package more palatable. "Basic" should be equated with "economy." The $15+ price tag on this does not fit into that category. In addition, this screen protector does nothing for glare--I would have liked a product that would allow me to move my iPad to the outdoors and actually be able to see its content. Check out some of the other screen protector options before purchasing this one.
