Screen protector recommendation for Surface Pro 2

I'm going to buy a Surface Pro 2 and I would like to hear your advice regarding the screen protector I should buy for it.

I always use a screen protector on my touch devices: I got Belkin MatteScreen on an iPad and HTC's glossy one on the HTC One mini. I may not use a sleeve, but I would always use a screen protector on a portable device, especially if it is designed to be scrubbed with a stylus.

I think I would go for a matte one for Surface Pro 2. Which one would you recommend? I'm not doing this wrong, screen protectors do work with a pressure-sensitive screen, don't they?

I went with an anti glare and anti fingerprint screen protector at first. Worked great, but my only complaint was that it decreased the screen resolution slightly.

I then went with a clear HD screen protector. Shows fingerprints, but other than that it's working out great for me.

I have always used Zagg screen protectors. The warranty them for life, and if you ever need one replaced, just send them an email and in a couple days, you get a new one, no questions asked. ZAGG - Your Best Fit. and look for InvisibleShield. I prefer the HD version, myself, but all of them are good.

Tech Armor's screen protector is by far the best. I've used ZAGG but it shows all of your pen marks. It's "self healing" but the pens lines will show for a while.

Tech Armor's is inexpensive and also has lifetime replacement. It's also a hard screen protector so it will not leave any pen marks and almost feels like nothing is on the screen.

I've almost always used the "wet" type of screen protector, which works great and is "easy" to put on. No problem with bubbles and dust. However with the Surface Pro2, which uses a Pen, I went with the "tempered Glass" variety. I used a cheap (20$) one from amazon called Anoke. It's okay and is a lot better in terms of feel (since it is glass) if you use the pen a lot. However, it is not as forgiving as the Wet screen protector, or even the dry ones. Since it is rigid, any speck of dust will appear as a bubble. You have to make sure there are NO dust speck or tiny thread on the screen. There is also a Gorilla Glass version at https://store.phantom.glass/ but I am cheap, so I went with the Anoke one.
If you are using it mostly for touch and not Pen, I'd go with Armor Suit or Zagg. If using Pen a lot, use Tech Armor, Anoke or Phantom glass.

I use the Supershieldz Matte protectors, as well. They don't effect the resolution, but do have an impact on viewing range and sharpness. I use the Wacom Feel stylus with the default nib, and find that this combination has a nice feel on the screen. All of the protectors are a pain to put on, though, in my opinion.
