    Hello all -

    I got the fellows writeright screen protectors and want to take it off - there's crap underneath of it that's driving me nuts. How do you take it off. I can't seem to grab a corner to pull it off or anything, the edge of the screen (the plastic part) is in the way.

    Anyone?

    There is a thread on this subject already. Search for it next time.

    But to answer your question. Try scotch tape on the corners, and pull back.

    I actually tried three searches, nothing came up.

    But thanks anyway.

    I went through the same hell with the Fellows protectors (returned the remaining package to CompUSA). I almost ripped my screen apart fighting to remove it (I think I did something stupid like using a sharp awl in the corner and by some miracle did not scratch the screen). You get what you pay for. A good protector like Boxware does not pose such a problem.

    Funny - I used an awl to get mine off last night... Didn't do any damage - just pulled enough off to grab it. Probably not my proudest moment, but there was crap under it. When I reapplied a new one (I'm a firm believer of using everything and not wasting an entire pack of protectors because they're not the most convenient - I only have about 30 more to go!), my solution was to leave a little room at the bottom to get to it, I didn't cut it so perfectly that the edges actually tucked under the plastic frame. A little foresight would've saved me a bunch of heartache last night...

    Well the other thing to try is and I know that it might sound a little weird but here it goes...

    duct tape on the corner. It grab it pretty good and pulled away from the screen.

    That is my 2 cents...

    Glad it worked out. The main problem I found with the Fellows protectors are they are so thin (and the adhesive is so strong). Boxware uses a thicker material that is much easier grab the edge and lift off. It is also easier to get rid of any bubbles when applying.

    Any else tried these?

    I originally bought one for my PSP after having bad luck with cheap protectors dimishing the image quality on screen. I got one for my Sony digi cam and just got one for my 700w. So far it works great. I was initially worried about it not working well with the touch screen because the protector was fairly thick. No probs for about a month though.
