I still haven't removed the screen protector that my G Pad came with.
It is very good and although I have bubbles at the top I have no bubbles on the screen.
The only one annoyance: the "Quick removal" tab keeps making me lift the Screen protector allowing dust in. It will probably become unbearable in a week or so...

Cut off the tab, that's what I did. Waiting for some protectors to show up on eBay before removal.

Yup cut the tab off too
Though in my defence I have ordered the 3M shield from Amazon, but it's a bit pricey.

I used it until my screen protectors came in from Amazon. I cut the little tab all the way off.

I removed the screen protector from the first day. Touching and swiping is like 100 times better without it. The glass is very strong and you cant scratch it unless you rub a key uppon the screen. Only drawback is that fingerprints stay on the screen and you have to clean it quite often but you could use a stylus for tablets and it will stay always clean.

Removed the screen protection first day just as katsika, just using it at home but it has a tough screen BUT fingerprints is really showing easy on the screen.

Just as a comp. not using any screen protection on my Samsung S3 either and working in a tough environment, not a single scratch. I think most of today screens are used to take some beating.

Much like jugglingandroid, I just snipped the tab for now until I get round to ordering some new ones.

Having said that, I'm intending on getting a flip case, so may not need one at all should I get one of them.

Probably not. Some people don't use them at all. I have just always used screen protectors on touch screen devices. A habit, really, just as I have always used covers for the devices whereas some people use none at all.

My 2 pennies worth of advice is Leave It On..
It's the best *Free* screen protector you'll ever find. mine is bubble free and like others have mentioned just get some good sharp scissors and trim the pull tab off. I have a new protector that came with a case that I ordered but, this protector barely shows fingerprints at all (unless you have oily hands) and it cleans up with just a wipe of a cloth. I see no reason to waste it or risk bubbles installing a new one when the original works to perfection with or without a stylus.
