iPad consumers should consider the iPad Invisible Shield by ZAGG. Protecting your iPad is not something to be taken lightly. As durable as Apple makes their products, they are not meant to withstand any type of daily unintentional abuse. iPad Cases and Scratch protectors were made solely for keeping your iPad looking new and ensuring maximum protection. This article will explain why protecting your device is so important.
No one purposely scratches their iPad with their keys or drops it on the floor. No one would think about purposely spilling coffee on their iPad while at a Starbucks. Of course, no one would know their kids would borrow the iPad from them and drag it on the floor as they watch their favorite cartoons on it. Maybe these things would never happen to you, but what if they did. Buying a good screen protector and a good case is like buying car insurance. You’ll never know how much you needed it until it’s too late. How do you know which companies to look at when buying protection for your iPad?
Many companies have tried to jump on the wagon and create screen protectors for the iPad but only a few companies have managed to stay at the top holding true to their marketing testimonials. ZAGG, the creator of the Invisible Shield, got it right. They have created shield protectors that are made out of the same stuff made to keep military helicopter blades protected. They have been able to maintain a great reputation and high integrity due to the quality of their products, especially for mobile devices like the iPad.
What are some things to be cautious about. If you find a screen protector selling for a dollar, it’s probably not a good quality screen protector like the Invisible Shield. Zagg’s prices are on the higher side but stand by their good name. However, even though their prices are high than the dollar screen protectors found on ebay, Zagg’s prices are comparable to a few other companies who offer similar quality screen protection. Another advantage of using Zagg’s products is that they are guaranteed for life. If, by chance, they ever get damaged, Zagg will replace the iPad Invisible Shield for free. Why do they offer this guarantee? They offer it because they are sure it will not scratch under any normal conditions.
There are great demonstrations available at http://www.ipadprotector.blogspot.com where you can see the people trying to jab sharp tools through the shield and it holds up very well. The same demonstrations are administered on the cheaper screen protectors and the sharp tools rip right through them like butter. You’ve spent a lot of money on a device that is probably your best investment yet, don’t compromise by buying cheap protective coverings. Look for quality products like Zagg’s Invisible Shield and keep your iPad looking like new and protected for life.

This is really a lovely case. I realised I had to have something to protect my iPad but was expecting to have to settle for detracting from its style whereas this compliments it.
The leather is really good quality and fits the iPad perfectly, the screen is fully revealed, but none of the black border, and a neat press stud flap is included to ensure the iPad can’t slip out. Access to all the iPad controls and inputs is allowed for.
The clever device which allows it to act as stand is really effective and in landscape mode holds it in five horizontal positions starting from almost upright, and in portrait mode almost upright (all that’s required) – the way in which it does this is ingenious and the five press studs which secure it make a really smart design feature on the front of the case when it is folded. The piece of leather on the back which forms the rigid stand is neat and unobtrusive and the inside of the flap which protects the screen is completely smooth, no chance of scratches.
This product is of excepcional quality. The leather is so soft that make each touch an absolute delight. I feel that my Ipad is well protected in this case which was the main purpose. The versatile snap-stand is really an advantage for a variety of situations. The only reason this product is not perfect me is because it does not have a small pocket to store the cloth I use to clean the ipad. It would also be nice to have a place to leave a stylus if you use one. However, I do understand that the reason for not having inside pockets is to avoid any possible scratches to your ipad screen. This shows the tremendous focus on quality from Tuff-luv. Nevertheless, if it was possible to implement a cloth pocket and a place for the stylus I would consider this product perfect.
