Power Support Anti-Glare vs. Crystal Screen Protectors


Power Support is an awesome company that makes two of the best screen protectors I can find. I have used both the Anti-Glare Protector and the Crystal Protector extensively, and my goal is to give you a comparison of the two.


Anti-Glare:
Pros
  • Easy to apply.
  • Reduces glare from sun, lamps, other light sources (hence it's title).
  • Greatly reduces the amount os smudges and fingerprints on the screen.
  • Looks good.
  • Smooth to the touch.
Cons
  • That same smoothness might make the screen feel a little cheap.
  • Lasts about 4 or 5 months before it needs to be replaced.
Crystal Screen
Pros
  • Looks gorgeous!
  • Mimics real glass really well in both look and feel.
  • Also easy to apply.
Cons
  • Collects smudges and fingerprints just as bad as the actual glass.
  • Really difficult to see the screen in the sunlight or with direct light on it.
So, there you have it. It all really depends on what you're looking for and what you're willing to sacrifice for protection. You can either go with the Anti-Glare set that reduces smudges so much that you rarely have to clean it but then have a screen that feels very similar
to the touch screens on GPS devices, or you can go with the Crystal Screen that looks like you don't even have any protection on there
, but then have to deal with what seems to be a perpetually dirty screen.
My personal favorite is the Anti-Glare because the feeling of the screen really doesn't bother me and not having to wipe down my screen every 10 minutes is a gift from the gods themselves! They cost $14.95 from the
Apple Store and each comes with two shields inside. If you're going to protect your expensive investment (like you always should) why not do it with something you won't even really notice is there!

  2. If you have a high end phone with a high quality GPS receiver and good battery life, you'll find plenty of Golf GPS programs up to the task of matching the functionality and accuracy of a dedicated Golf GPS for a fraction of the price.

  5. The iPad is an expensive and delicate piece of technology which should be well taken care of. Although you might have exhausted your budget completely on purchasing the device, it might be necessary for you to spend a few extra dollars to ensure the safety and protection of your device, although some people are not willing to spend any more after purchasing it.
