    What the F.... LOL

    I don't have Sparkle...do you think it would work with another game?

    Sorry...couldn't resist

    Is that for iPad?

    haha, with Sparkle you just need to press all over the screen so I suppose if you sit there pressing the screen at different places for 1 hour that would certainly help...

    I have used and recommend the screen protectors from HandHeldItems.com . They are inexpensive but of high quality. I certainly can't justify paying more. Since you want anti-glare, you can get one for $5, or a three-pack for $11.

    HHI HP TouchPad Anti-Fingerprint, Anti-Glare, Matte Finishing Screen Protector

    If you're not an experienced pro at installing these things, I'd get the three-pack. That way you'll have spares when/if you screw up one trying to install it.

    Also the ones by Generiks or Spare Parts on Amazon are a good price, and I suspect are made of the same stuff.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    Go to ebay. Search for matte screen protector. Best price.

    Since it has Gorilla Glass, I don't want to put a protector on it.

    I'm doubting its Gorilla Glass, I got a 1 inch deep scratch next to the camera on the first day (it never left the house and I have no idea how it happened).

    Also, but Gorilla Glass is not scratch proof, just resistant.

    I swear by the Boxwave Matte ones. (Google 'em.) Easy to apply, no bubbles, screen still looks great, smooth to the touch.

    I have this screen protector for my Nook Color and it's absolutely perfect:

    BARNES & NOBLE | NOOKcolor Anti-Glare Screen Film Kit by Barnes & Noble

    It's anti-glare but doesn't detract from the screen quality at all unlike other matte screen protectors I've found. It also almost completely eliminates smudges. Does anyone know of an analogous screen protector for the TouchPad?

    Thanks!

    I've used screen protectors from clear-coat.com on my phones and on my kids' iPod touch players. They're reasonably easy to install, very clear, and have a good feel. I've also used phantomskinz. I would say that the clear-coat protectors have the same look and feel, and are easier to apply.

    As for gorilla glass, it met my daughter, and lost. I always opt for the screen protectors. It really costs so little compared to the annoyance of scratches.

    I think saying a $17 screen protector is pricey is a bit funny. I think my Zagg cost $30 or $40. Pricey is replacing the whole TP because you dropped it. As has been said at least once, there are times where having it is better than not having it. I wouldn't want to use it without one. Call Me OCD, but I'm not taking it off. Incidentally, the Zagg isn't the most invisible and doesn't stop the glare that much. I hope one can be found that's better.

    It's funny when you can buy the same protector for $5 or less. Screen protectors are some of the best marketed items out there. If people can make money selling them at $5 a piece, then those selling them at $17 (or more) a piece are snake-oil salesmen.

    You want to know how the business works? Go to DHgate.com, search for "Touchpad screen protector," and buy them in bulk--let's say 500 of them--for 80 cents a piece:

    Wholesale - Clear LCD Flim Screen Protector Cover for Touch Pad TouchPad without retail pack MSP261 | DHgate.com

    Invent a brand name, have some pretty packaging made, put up a website with some fancy claims about how well they work, and then sell them for $17 a piece... Profit.

    Want some higher quality ones? Buy the ones selling for $1 a piece instead of 80 cents, and charge $30 for them.

    So yes, I get a bit annoyed when I see people charging (or paying) ridiculous prices for screen protectors. The reason there are so very many brands to choose from is because this industry is ridiculously profitable and there is very little risk. But it's ridiculously profitable only because people are willing to buy into the lie that paying $17 for a clear plastic sticker must mean it is better than a $5 clear plastic sticker. Sure there are different manufacturers of these films and differences in quality, but nothing that justifies that sort of pricing.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    Skimomi has it cheap right now. its on clearance. $6.99 its texture is like Zagg. when you put it on do it in the bathroom and turn on your bathtub, hot water. so the steam can take up all the dust

    I am a cheapskate but I will spend extra for quality. What is the easiest screen protector to apply from everyone's experience? I tried a griffin from walmart but it looked like a ****** (me) put it on.

    I put a screen protector on because I wanted to protect the back and the screen protector came with it. I didn't like the reduced screen sensitivity. I was constantly having to hit keyboard letters multiple times.

    last I checked, even NASA and hasn't invented a 100% scratch proof glass surface....
    unless Congress gives them new funding to come up with a surface made
    out of diamond....
