    Right - I prefer the clarity of the screen with crystal, but not the fingerprints, oils, etc. My screen looked filthy no matter how much I cleaned it off. I've gone back to the anti-glare.

    Preference: Crystal for traditional palms, anti-glare for treos.

    The Anti-Glare is superior in day-to-day useage than the Crystal for the Treo.

    I can't remember the last time I used a stylus on my 650 and the Crystal has a tendency to look smudged all the time and makes it a bit difficult to read in situations where bright lighting creates glare.

    In addition, and this could just be my imagination, the anti-glare seems to accept stylus/fingernail inputs more readily - perhaps because the surface is a bit "rougher."

    OTOH, the crystal protectors work extremely well for "non-touchscreen" applications like the Blackberry that won't get smudged as much.

    BTW, the Boxwave Screen Protector in conjunction with the FlexiSkin cases make for some decent protection. I'm not sure if I would trust the treo to a belt clip where the screen side faces out, but if you carry your Treo in a pocket or purse, then it is outstanding protection.

    The FlexiSkin for the Blackberry protects even better as it also covers the keyboard (Can Boxwave do this for the Treo?) and actually makes typing easier and more accurate. Because the screen protector/FlexiSkin covers most of the Blackberry (except for ports and the scroll wheel of course) it works very well in messy environments where spray (think hospital) or the errant soda would normally ruin your device.

    In the past, Boxwave has had some shipping issues with their overnight carrier, but it appears that they've been resolved.

    I go back and forth. After a few weeks of constantly cleaning the screen I go back to the the antiglare. After a few weeks of grainyness i go back to the cyrstal clear.

    This is definitely my favorite part about anti-glare. I don't think it's that much of a difference to prefer dealing with the gritty screen. I've never used a stylus with a Treo past day one, excluding games, however. No need. But yes, I do remember the reaction of anti-glares being very responsive!! But like I said...I'm through with the grit.

    And I think it must be my imagination but FlexiSkin type cases are a pain in the *** to pull out of a pocket!! I also remember getting dirt/sand unknowingly lodged between the skin & the case, resulting in a scratched Treo. I don't recommend it. The 755 has a nice, slightly rubbery texture that will prevent dropping like earlier Treos. Upgrade Today!

    I've had both. I have to say I prefer the crystal. You have to clean it a bit more often, but the colors are crisper and brighter without the haze from the anti-glare. Just my preference though. As many have said, it's a matter of taste.

    is the anti-glare one any "harder" than the crystal one? I use the boxwave crystal versions, and have a big series of scratches in the middle of the screen from using (a lot) the stylus for the Megabowling game (....my high score is just one pin away from the perfect 300!!)

    cheers

    Regarding the Boxwave Crystal Clears... I tried them years ago, and had problems with them not adhering completely along the edges. The install instructions said it takes a couple days to fully stick, but I always had them peeling away along the edges no matter how long I waited. Anyway, have they resolved this problem?

    denpends on the batch you get. Also I have found that the screen itself can be slightly curved causing this.

    I had one that the one side would never stick. I put it on another device and had no problems. Strange since the protector is flexible, but thats what happened.

    Yes the anti-glare is harder/stiffer than the crystal model. It also hides scratches/smudges better.
