    I installed the Acase screen protectors on 2 of my three Touchpads.
    It was sold/shipped directly from Amazon.com and came as a pack
    of 3 protectors.

    There's no detectable difference of the Touchpad's response to the
    touch and swipe of my fingers, compared to the Touchpad that I
    didn't put the screen protector on.

    Last week, I bought a Targus stylus from Best Buy. It was $14.99.

    It worked just as perfectly as my bare finger on the Touchpad
    without the screen protector.

    However, it is EXTREMELY unresponsive on the two Touchpads with
    the Acase screen protectors. I frequently had to push the stylus
    hard for the Touchpad to acknowledge the touch. (so hard that the
    Targus stylus' rubber tip is squished)

    I went back to Best Buy and bought another Targus stylus... and then
    another. All were just as unresponsive as the first.

    Just to be sure that the two Touchpads with screen protectors on
    didn't have a bad touchscreen, I took off the protectors for a while.
    With the screen protectors off, the stylus worked perfectly.

    Is this a problem with the stylus or the screen protector? Or is it
    because the combination of the two caused the electrical resistence
    to double?(making it hard for the tourchscreen to detect the touch)

    Is anyone else having this problem?


    Thanks!

    your finger is bigger and has built-in oils. If you want to prove this, use a grape. It will work on your tp. Then grab a latex doctor's glove. It works on the tp, but I don't know if it will with a screen protector....

    gorilla glass is designed to not use a protector, so ymmv.

    I allowed my mother-in-laws to borrow one of my three Touchpads
    for two days. Guess what, she managed to scratch it with her
    fingernails. In her defense, she just had her nails done at a salon,
    so they probably used something really hard. At first, I did
    NOT beleive her, but I can't very well accuse her, right? However,
    she showed it to me by making another scratch with her nails.
    I was like "What the f----, what did you do that for. AGAIN?"
    (didn't say it out loud, of course) The 1/4 inch scratchs are just
    above the home button. Fortunatly, they were not that noticeble
    when the screen is turned on.

    If she isn't the grandmother to my children and a GILF(just kidding),
    I would have probably slapped her silly for the scratches.

    Grandma nails vs Gorilla glass. Grandma nails won. Twice.

    An hour after she left, I ordered the screen protectors from Amazon.

    I've found even without a screen protector that the targus stylus is unresponsive. I have to squish the tip to get it to register. I get worried the metal part is going to hit the screen and scratch it

    oh well... I returned the Targus stylus to Best Buy...

    Guess my finger is as good as any stylus.

    Hi.

    Targus seem to be ok for me, also tried amcase (seem about same).
    tried acase2 and sketch (these two were bad)

    I have both the anti-glear and hard coat from acase screen protector. targus/amcase worked best - wider rubber tip
