Bubbles do abound though! I thought it was frustrating putting these on my iPhone. Man, was I cheesed off after trying to put one on the huge iPad screen.
Until one of my friends gave me a tip!
He said to apply it while in the bathroom with the shower running with hot water. The humidity in the air pretty much knocks the dust out of the air, which makes the application SO much easier.
Speck has gone for the bare-bones instructions, but I think this is a mistake. With a few more cautions and details about performing a proper installation, I probably would have got it on the first try instead of wasting money and becoming very frustrated with the product.
Two bonuses in my opinion are:
a) The slightly rough surface paradoxically feels smoother than the bare screen when swiping, pinching, etc., especially with sweaty or greasy fingers. On the unprotected screen it can feel like my fingers stick to the screen and the screen wants to keep them from moving smoothly across it.
b) A non-mirror-like finish means much less smudging and no compulsion to constantly wipe off fingerprints. It does smudge, but less obviously/visibly so, and I wipe it far less often than the mirror that is the bare screen.
I've had one of these on my iPad 1 for a couple of years now, and with somewhat light usage it is still in great condition, so durability is great. I've just applied the 2nd sheet from the package to my new iPad 3, and expect to get similar performance from it.
Now, about application, I have a procedure that works for me and takes me about 10 minutes. It is based on applying many sheets to phones, UMPCs, and a couple of iPads over the years:

The anti-glare properties are a much needed change to the standard screen, and the feel is actually an improvement. Instead of slick glass, it's satin smooth. But you do need to take a few minutes to install the protector correctly, exactly as shown in the 2:59 minute video. I viewed the video through once before opening the package, then did my installation while it played through again. Didn't even have to watch it all the way through the second time. Total installation? Less than five minutes.
The video doesn't emphasize making sure that the film is square to the screen so it doesn't touch the iPad sides, which can result in the edge of the film being slightly raised and create a `bubble.' That didn't particularly bother me as the edges are inside my case anyway - but it might bother others, so a bit of patience and caution is advised.
If you have an iPad and want to reduce glare, improve the screen `feel,' and protect that glass from things like jewelry - this one will do the trick nicely. Strongly recommended.
