Not bad, but...

This review is from: Anker Screen Protector for iPad Mini / iPad Mini 2 / iPad Mini 3 / New Apple iPad Mini Retina Display [2-Pack] - Xtreme Scratch Defender Crystal-Clear High-Response Premium with Lifetime Warranty (Electronics)
As far as screen protectors go, this one's pretty sturdy. I had no problems putting it on my iPad, and even managed to peel it away a bit once it was on to get out a pesky piece of dust with no adverse effects to the plastic. However, I do take issue with the texture of the protector and claims of a full touch experience.
I typically use my iPad with a stylus, and I found it rather difficult to use with the screen protector on since there was noticeably more friction between the screen and the stylus. This was the Wacom Bamboo stylus, which uses a rubber nib - disk-style styli may behave differently, but I'm not too sure. Unfortunately, I ended up removing the protector since it prevented me from using my usual drawing apps - hardly a good outcome. But if you're only going to use it for casual use like reading, or the occasional game - I'm sure you'll be satisfied.
Edit: At the request of Anker's customer support (CS), I've decided to give an update to the review. CS kindly replaced my glossy screen protector with their matte protector. Sadly, it wasn't too amazing with the rubber tipped stylus - but much more usable. Though, for use with disc-based stylus products, like the Adonit Touch, it works just fine. Although, with my Adonit Touch prone to causing scratches (already managed to scratch the protector...), I guess I can live with pushing down my rubber-tipped stylus a bit harder.
