    My friend's DS has a brand called "taku". It's about the same quality as Hori. However I'm not sure if it's removable and reusable. Does the job all the same.

    I think it's around 7 US shipped. Not too much of a difference, but pretty much nothing beats either this or Hori for quality/price.

    I bought a Pelican screen protector from Circuit City. The top piece left a little bubble on the edge. I tried re-applying it and it just made it worse. As a result, I bought a Hori screen protector from DecalGirl.com. Hopefully I don't mess up again.

    It looks pretty clear and makes using the stylus very smooth. I can't compare it to the Hori since I don't have one yet. Applying the top screen is the hardest because there's no edge where you can align the screen.

    I'm going to guess that the Hori is better quality because it's made in Japan, while the Pelican is made in China.

    I've never read the manual so I wouldn't know, but that's interesting.
