I have used an iPad naked before, and an iPhone naked before, and it has gotten scratched, both times.

I tried using clear screen protectors, but they end up getting scratched even more easily, distorting the screen.

These days I swear by glass screen protectors. They protect the screen and they don't get scratched easily either, retaining the clarity of the display.
another glass to protect the gorilla glass, splendid..

It sounds stupid, but my point is that the gorilla glass does get scratched, so even that needs protecting. And using something non-glass doesn't help much because it gets scratched even more easily, which distorts the screen.

You don't need one. I've never used one on an iPad.

With SP, iPad is gonna get scratched if you are not careful.

Without SP, iPad is definitely getting scratched if you are not careful.

It all boils down to individual preferences and how careful(unlucky,fussy) you are.

I cannot stand a tiny weeny scruff/stain/scratch, thus I use Griffins Survivor case. To some, it defeat the purpose of having an Air, but it's just me

no, not stupid lah bro. I understand you completely. its just overkill.
I used to brag iphone no need screen protector, and I kept my mouth shut since my iphone 5 got scratched.

they say sand particles are kryptonite to gorilla glass. I learnt that the hard way.

IMO SP only serves to destroy the beautiful retina display Apple made for us. Might as well save some money and get the iPad 2 instead.

Anything other than clear SP will definitely mar the experience of the retina display.

agreed with you. I travel alot to mideast for business and it's really "sandy" over there. Had some bad experiences with scratches on my HTC Butterfly, Padfone Infinity, iPads, etc so I believe SP is necessary (clear ones).
I used to swear by no SP also but nowadays cannot trust Gorilla Glass being scratch proof.

At least when SP is scratched, just change it.

very easy to put on too. a finger push on the center. it self-stick the whole sp.
