    I've read most of the threads about which screen protectors people think are the best and the worst, and I am not looking for further recommendations.

    What I haven't quite learned is why the bad ones are so bad -- other than that some of them aren't clear. Since my very first Palm Pilot (the very first Palm Pilot ), I have used screen protectors from the very first pack of 12 fellowes screen protectors I bought years ago for what struck me as the outrageous price of $15. On my Treo 650, I use the almost-universally derided PalmOne protector that came in the box. I think they're fine. I used Graffiti every day on my prior Palms and tap a lot on the Treo screen. In my experience, one fellowes screen protector lasts for more than a year, and so far (in its young life) I have had no problem at all with my PalmOne protector on the Treo.

    So, what I can't understand is: why does a roughly 2.5" x 2.5" piece of plastic cost between $1 and $10 (depending on the brand), why are people willing to pay that much, and why is the PalmOne protector so frequently belittled as "cr*p" -- especially when, I would hazard the guess, most people only tap on their Treo screens and don't even write on them?

    $10/15=$0.67 per device. Pretty good, I'd say.

    So, you found the P1 sheet to scratch easily and wear badly. That's good to know! Did it also loosen or lift off?

    I use tweezer's to remove mine..stick it straight down in the corner and gently grab the edge, I also apply them using tweezers that way I don't get finger grease on them after cleaning.

    There was no first Palm Pilot. The first unit was a Pilot from US Robotics and had 128KB of Ram. The Pilot Professional had half a meg.

    Anyhow, I had the orginal Pilot cause I knew I had to have it. Is that the one you had?

    And can you use any brand of screen protector with the Treo, say one designed for the PPC?
