InvisibleShield High Definition for Microsoft Surface Tablets

It’s all very well having a case or a sleeve to protect the exterior of the Surface, but what about guarding the display should you accidentally drop the tablet?

Zagg is hoping that you’ll opt for its Invisible Shield screen protector. Designed specifically for the Surface, the screen protector offers military-grade protection in saving the display from scratches, dust, dirt and other debris.

The Invisible Shield screen protector features Nano-Memory technology with Zagg claiming that this gives ‘unbelievable’ resistance to damage, better coverage in the corners and curves of your Surface and makes it easier to grip the tablet.

The screen protector is also said to be easy to install and remove, while the “Orange peel” finish is said to break up glare and reduce those annoying finger print smudges.

Perhaps best of all however is Zagg’s promise to deliver the product with a lifetime guarantee. This means that if the cover does ever wear or scratch, the firm will replace it for free.

SanDisk Ultra 64GB SDXC Class 10 microSD memory Cardsurface-accessories-sd-card

Largely owing to Windows 8 and the Office suite taking up a lot of storage space, new Surface RT and Surface Pro owners will be disappointed to learn that their 32GB, 64GB and 128GB tablets come with far less than the advertised storage available to the user.

Therefore, you may well want get additional storage and, thankfully, at least the Surface has connections for both a microSD memory card and for a USB flash drive.

There are a lot of options out there for both, but I’d probably spring for SanDisk’s Ultra 64GB SDXC Class 10 ($32 from Amazon) if I was looking to use my Surface for business.

This is more than enough storage for files, films and more, while the card is one of the fastest in its class, reaching transfer speeds of up to 30MB/s.
