    I put a screen protector on my Treo after I first got it. I needed it because I used my stylus a lot then.

    But now I have Switcheroo, Powerjog, Easy Launch, and Treo Button all installed. With these programs, and after spending some time on the keyboard, I find I don't hardly use the stylus on the screen at all, except for taps I can do with my finger. I took the protector off.

    Does the Treo really need a screen protector? Let's be honest - the visibility on all b/w screens aren't the brightest. The screen protector just makes it worse.

    Well, sortof.

    I've had mine for a month with nary a screen scratch. I just received my puplemoo protectors I ordered a couple of weeks ago. They fit with no mods.

    My pet peeve is how smudged the screen gets without a protector when using my finger a lot. I'll see if this makes it better - with past devices it did.

    I also applied a second protector to the outside of the flip window (which also fits perfectly) - I'm more concerned about scratches on it than I am on the screen...

    I got screen protectors on both the Outside glass thingie and the display. I refuse to use any PDA (that I own) without the screen protected.

    Did everyone yank off their original plastic covers for the inside and outside flip?

    As far as the screen goes, I'm using a cropped writeRight and use my finger tips instead of the stylus most of the times.

    I'm looking for a screen protector for my treo. I would prefer one which does'nt need any cropping. Where do I get these puple moo protectors ?

    Are there any other protectors which fits well without any cropping ? Where can I get it ?

    I used my Palm V for three years without protection and the screen's still fine. Are you guys using razors or something as stylii?

    And I thought that little screwdriver was so darn handy!

    Actually I just ordered some Purplemoo also but they will be for the flip window. I use "The Clip" to carry the little gadget around which offers NO finish protection at all. I'm not worried about the finish at all (let the flaming begin ;-) but the function of the window is of great concern.

    LOL...this is an old thread...but no I haven't on any of my devices. I'm a heavy touchscrean user and find the protector limits my view. Never had a problem with scatches either.

    Yes, I use BoxWave screen protectors. I try to keep my electronic devices as mint as possible, and the screen is critical to keep not only clean but scratch free, since it is a touch screen and scratches, etc. can damage it.

    I'm sure I agree w/many people, ascreen protecter IS neccesary. scratches, wear&tear, man there are many more reason's than I can type. But putting one one & how to put one on is very trickey, (actually splitting the case is the best way even though your phone company doesn't appprove), so again for many reasons, YES, screen protecters are a must, regardlwss of their High costs for a thin piece of plastic.

    ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD

    I have bought about 7 or 8 of their shields. I have a full body on my Centro and just the screen on my wifes and moms. They dont have the haze that most have and once their on, their not going to move around and peel up off the screen. i touch my screen with my finger, nail, key, what ever. Its not going to damage the screen. I have the same shield on my wifes and moms iPods. Make sure to have a new antistatic cloth before you start.

    I've tried both InvisibleSheild and Bodyguardz on a device and I must say, I think this TC review is pretty much on point with that I discovered myself. Although I think the Bodyguardz is just a little thinner than the InvisibleSheild. After trying both, I'll stick with Bodyguardz.

    The higher clarity with Bodyguardz is unmistakable. And Bodyguardz takes the time to detail where each piece goes in a diagram that comes with the Bodyguardz. InvisibleSheild kind of leaves it to the installer to guess where the pieces fit and depending on the device it's not always an easy guess for every piece.

    There really is no need - it's like keeping the plastic covers on furniture, or putting down newspaper on your carpet, it just spoils the experience for no benefit (except making you look like a cheap nerd).

    I couldn't imagine using a palm without one. Had them on the Vx, and all the way to the 755. In fact, I also won't use any case but one with a complete plastic front to protect it.

    I know, overkill.

    I'm sure usage is a factor, but now that I use devices with flush screens I'd rather have some coverage. I never used them when using Treos that had recessed screens.
