    Found out the dell venue 8 has the same 10.8 dimensions but with rounded instead of square edges. I ordered screen protectors for that in the meantime to act as a stop gap until the ones I ordered from China get here

    They'll probably start sell screen protectors after the Surface 3's released, also I would get a tempered glass screen protector as they don't limit pen sensitivity or touch, unlike the plastic screen protectors which are hard to write on as well as hampering touch and pen sensitivity.

    I found one on Amazon that's for the Surface Pro 3 yet lists compatibility with both the SP3 and Surface 3. You have to cut it down to fit the Surface 3 but it has the proper lines on it to do so.

    As for other screen protectors, I haven't found any outside of what the MS store is selling for $50. I will gladly pay that just to have it installed, by them, on day one. I did the same thing with my SP2 and they went through three packages of the screen protectors before they installed one without issues. It wasn't from me complaining either, the employee (who will be there tomorrow so I can grab him to install mine) was that anal about it.

    We likely won't be seeing less expensive, 3rd party protectors until after the Surface 3 launches. There aren't that many for the SP3 so I doubt there will be all that much for the Surface 3 even after its launch.

    Hopefully they are decent quality. I'm holding out for glass ones which are not too thick for use with the pen.

    I'm holding out for some nonglare ones. I got Boxwave ones for my Dell Venue 8 Pro. Hope Joto or Boxwave produce matte ones for S3.

    Ended up just biting the bullet and going for genuine MS tempered glass since the store was also able to fit it for me. I was too paranoid about damaging my screen despite it being Gorilla Glass!

    wiederman: Ordered two packs from them 2 weeks ago. I got the package today. Now, I have 6 screen protectors for Surface Pro 3 (probably, because they are much larger than my Surface 3). I complained, now, I am waiting for their response. :-((((

    I got full refund. I cut them to size, now I am waiting for something which was really made for Surface 3.

    Well, this stinks. I don't have 10 posts so I can't post links.

    From Amazon, I got Mr. Shield for S3, three pieces for $7.95 (Prime). I won't know how well it works until I am checking game camera photos Sunday on our way home from our camp.

    There's also iLLumiShield, 2 pieces for $7 plus $2.95 shipping.

    These are both supposed to be non-glare.

    Prefer a tempered glass protector. Where to buy it?
    Microsoft's online store will definitely sell them. Have you considered Amazon, EBay or BestBuy as alternatives? I got a screen protector for my Pro 3 from Amazon and for its cost its quite good.
    Due to the Surface 3 being out for a quite a while now I'm going to guess that 3rd party manufacturers have made tempered glass screen protectors for the Surface 3, probably at a lower cost than Microsoft. I've just had a quick look and found this on Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/IVSO-Premium...pUvbUpU3154361

    IF you do decide to get a screen protector from a 3rd party supplier instead of Microsoft its worth looking at the dimensions of the screen protector (if you can) as its possible that due to a typo the supplier could ship a Pro 3 protector instead of a Surface 3 tempered glass screen protector. Also its worth noting that you should take your time aligning your screen protector (with tape) as I shattered two screen protectors when trying to lift them off the screen of the surface! Furthermore you might not be able to use clamshell cases on the Surface 3 with the screen protector I tried applying a trident Cyclops case to my Pro 3, and lets say it was rather difficult to secure the case correctly.

    Hope this helps!

    I did not like the Mr. Shield at all, but got JOTO nonglare for both my S3 and my SP3. Installation is a PITA (probably because of screen size as compared to a phone and the film is maybe a little thicker) but it was worth all the time it took to get the protectors on. The glare is eliminated, so much so that I can easily use the tablet when I'm riding in a vehicle on a sunny day. No longer see all the fingerprints and every speck of dirt, either. Using the stylus feels more like writing on a piece of paper. I hate glossy screens.
