    Haha yeah these things can be a pain to install and keep from getting bubbles under the surface. I had a difficult time when I did one on my old first gen iPod touch when I got it. Wound up badly botching up the first the first one(luckily i had 5 pack). The second one turned out ok minus one or two bubbles on the edge and off screen that I cant realy see anyways since its covered by a case.

    I think it was well worth it on the touch though as it greatly reduced finger prints. Plus it may have also helped protect the glass in the middle of screen a little from cracks/scratches because I've managed to knock it off a bed side table a number of times

    You go right ahead and pay 3-4 times as much for a single protector if it makes you feel better. That's one hell of an expensive clear plastic sticker.
    Where did you pick them up?

    HandHeldItems.com.

    And since my original post about their screen protectors in this thread, their Touchpad screen protector has become their daily best seller, and the website seems to be experiencing load issues. Not sure I can claim exclusive credit for this, but... LOL!
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    If you just want a piece of plastic to protect against scratches then any film will do. However, if you want to read the display when you are outdoors then you'd want the NuShield DayVue antireflective film. It eliminates glare by cancelling light bouncing off the display. It is well worth the money and its the only film of its type on the market today.

    Has anyone found a cheap and good solution to just protect the back of the device? I don't care much about a screen protector as my fingers won't scratch it. But I keep putting it on its back all the time on different surfaces and I'd like not to care about it. Any suggestions?

    I could find some of those carbon-looking stuff for aroud USD 20-30, but I think that's a little much. Additionally I don't need any carbon look (don't mind it though).

    I still have the original plastic on mine. I bought a six pack from Amazon for $12. It should arrive this week. I really want the case.

    I bought the Acase brand from amazon:

    Amazon.com: Acase(TM) HP TouchPad AcaseView Screen Protector Film Clear (Invisible) for HP TouchPad Wifi / 3G Model 16GB, 32GB (3-Pack): Electronics

    They give you 3 and surprisingly, they are actually really good. I am a big supporter for powersupportusa.com screen protectors (pricey but very easy to install but they dont make for touchpad) and if you are familiar with that brand, the Acase are pretty close in touch and clarity.

    So for $100-$150 investment, I wouldn't spend too much on a screen protector.

    If anybody that got one after a few days could lmk what they think it'd be appreciated. Thanks.
    I just got one today (15$). It is too thick IMO. Ill probably remove it soon.

    I bought the armoursuit militarysheild on amazon for $21 without shipping. It comes with a black carbon fiber backing and a screen protector with lifetime replacements. I'll post a review and some pictures when I get it later this week. ;-)

    Hey, I just ordered the HandHeldItems 3 pack and didn't see this post until afterward. Let us know how the Spare Parts protectors work; I'll do the same with the HandHeldItem models.

    Don't pay too much for it. It costs less than 2 dollars in Taobao (China's Ebay).

    Good idea, will do. Although I haven't actually received my Touchpad from HP SMB yet, so it will be a while.

    just got Acase screen protectors in today, pack of 3 for 16 bucks...it has a glass feel, not sticky like zagg. It has a light adhesive backing....takes a while to install but it looks great...the fit is pretty spot on

    I was looking to get one from ebay for $3-4. Do anyone have experience with these? I can see myself spending $20 for a piece of plastic and I don't see it being that much better. I do want something though because I keep my touchpad in a neoprene pouch case with the micro USB charger.

    I got my ebay 3 pack, I'm glad I ordered the 3 pack. Installing took literally 15 seconds, but there was a mark on the protector, it was the outline of the applicator (which feels like it was made out of a razor blade.) I think it was pushed against the protector during shipping. So I ripped that one off and applied the second 1, the fitment is terrible, its on and seems to be a few mm too long, but I'd rather have it on then just use the screen. It feels great and there's no fingerprints, but it was cheap and I just wished it fitted slightly better.

    Also got the Acase. They are similar in feel and look to the power support for iphones.
