Default Screen protector finds

Has anyone found a decent screen protector for the Nexus 7?

I already have a very fine (can't be seen without proper lighting and close examination) scratch, and I'd like to avoid getting any others.

What always bothers me about most screen protectors is that usually they make the screen look distorted.

So how about it? Has anyone found a screen protector that fits and is truly "invisible"?

I'm wondering this same thing. I need to get a screen protector on this bad boy.

I can say to stay away from Xtreme Guard.
I saw the article mentioning a huge sale so I gave them a try.

I got it on and waited like the instructions said. My N7 became absolutely useless. The screen wouldn't respond to any of my touches.
When you pay next to nothing, you get what I pay for.

I bought two for $9 on ebay. They are dry application and they should be fine. I'd really love a Zagg or XO, but I obviously can't have those yet.

oh, it's working. But I had to remove the screen protector to do so.

I've used ZAGG before and I loved it. It's expensive, but it's guaranteed for the life of your product:

Don't buy this: Savvies screen protector Crystal-Clear for Asus Nexus 7 Tablet
Savvies screen protector Crystal-Clear for Asus Nexus 7: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

I got it from Amazon. Doesn't actually fit! Too big, utterly useless.

I fitted an Xtremeguard this morning. All working well, but I had to apply it 3 times to get it right. A phone screen is one thing, but this is a whole different kettle of fish. It was quite nervewracking using water too. Not sure I'd do it again.
