screen protector
      #16872 - 10/28/04 12:26 PM

Hi, a stupid question here for the novice I am :

Should I use a screen protector to protect my device? Is it really necessary? I mean, has anyone not use one but been able to keep its device functionning well for a long time?

Thanks

I personally don't like screen protectors that much and never use them and my screens haven't been damaged on my many PDAs. But I don't use much pressure when I write on screen and I don't spend hours playing action games where you tap hard on the screen.

I wouldn't be without a screen protector. Anything can scratch a screen, including a sand grain on a stylus. This happened to a friend not long ago. I always sell my old PDAs and they sell much better with their screens in like-new condition. That's been the case with all of mine over the years--never a single scratch.

Just got my HP hx4700 - my first PDA to replace my battered Psion 3a.

I have fitted a screen protector, but as I did, I wondered how easy it would be to eventually remove it, especially as the screen seems to come with a kind of plastic coat (no, I am not talking about the hinged cover!)

Any advice from anyone??

There should be no problem removing it. But do peel it off slowly, as you would a bandaid .

Well, I did buy and fit a screen protector- one by Proporta, and it is great. Negligible difference to the brightness of the screen and it is easy to fit, remove, wash and replace.

When I remove it there is no residual stickiness, it seems to stick by some inherent property of the plastic and not with adhesive as I had imagined and there is no damage or effect on the screen whatsoever - even to a fussy person such as me!

Highly recommended

PS I have no connection with the company- I just chose them because of the quality of their leather case for my ipaq
