The folks at Cooper Cases are apparently quite proud of this tablet folio case: After all, it’s described as both “Infinite” and “Universal” in its lofty name. And in a few aspects, Cooper’s pride may be justified. Unfortunately, too many generic features (including the look) detract from the overall product.
Padacs iPad 2 Glare Guard 2 Screen Protector
Musician Jimmy Cliff tells us, “It’s going to be a bright, bright, bright… sun shiny day!” And those UV-rays can potentially distract the clarity of images on your iPad’s screen. With the Glare Guard 2 tablet screen protector , your device’s screen remains luminous and vibrant wherever you go, even reducing the glare caused by those equally distracting artificial fluorescent indoor lights as well.

- Package includes a soft cleaning cloth and tape

The Glare Guard 2 from Padacs is a unique 6-layer transparent film to be applied to the iPad 2 screen in order to reduce the impact of glare, enhance images, eliminate sparkle, as well as improve vibrancy and clarity. Plus, it also offers protection to a hardness factor 3H, primarily shielding against scratches.
The six layers consist of: a dust-proof film, an anti-glare layer, a hard coating layer, PET, a silicone adhesive, and a release film (both the dust-proof and release film are peeled off during the application process). Unfortunately, Padacs has neglected to include any instructions on how to install the product, but the package does include adhesive/cleaning tape and a soft cloth.
- Professional anti-glare protection for iPad 2
- Reduces visual impact of glare on the iPad 2 screen
- Offers screen protection to a hardness factor 3H
- The unique surface material enhances images, eliminates sparkle and improves vibrance and clarity
- Dustproof and fingerprints can be easily removed with the enclosed cleaning cloth
This case-style is not designed to offer any increased aesthetic, so we do not factor this category into scoring.
More than just anti-glare, the Glare Guard 2 also improves vibrancy and clarity, as well as increases screen touch-sensitivity and high transmittance.
Not only does it protect your eyes from glare, but preserves your device’s screen from scratches and abrasions.
I wish Padacs had included some instructions on how to install this product, or at least included an extra film in case users don’t get it right the first time.
$13.95 is a small cost to pay for something that I think every device could use to maintain screen touch-sensitivity and luster.
The Glare Guard 2 is a great low-cost accessory for preventing any artificial or natural light from outshining your iPad2’s brilliant, radiant glow.
