    Use Hori ones. Others suck a major cock.

    I have Hori, but feel that it is over hyped. Its a decent cover, better than most that you'll get at a local store, but it wasn't as good as ones i've cut out of pda covers. The clarity and such is great, but sensitivity seems to have gone down by a noticeable amount for me.

    I used a Invisible Shield on my PSP, those are awesome! I hear they're pretty good on the DS too.

    Does the DS Lite really NEED screen protectors, though?

    That doesn't make any difference, lots of people have got on just fine without them.

    If you use your DS you HAVE to have a screenprotector.

    Hori is really good. [​IMG]

    You need a screen protector for your DS like you need magic beans

    lol. I put one on and took it off. A few marks here and there on the touch screen just adds character.

    If the screen bothers you in the future you can always get it replaced, its cheap.

    I like how they make the screen a little bit smoother. Great for spinning in EBA and Yamasunda.

    I found that any time that I thought there was a scratch on my touch screen, it was in fact just a mark in a light layer of residue (ewww) , cleaning it with a glasses cloth and "frog spray" (it was a "typo" on the bottle, it was meant to say fog! it was just normal glasses cleaner). it was really good at removing this residue and made the classes super clean!

    agreed.

    not to mention that some games have real potential for damage such as Ouendan and EBA.

    I recommend a pack of PDA screen protectors from Staples or OfficeMax type stores. Cut to fit with an X-Acto knife and you're good to go. They hold up really well but most importantly, they are "cling-type" screen protectors which means no adhesive residue and no trouble removing them when you need to (though I've never had to for my DS or DSL).

    Do you know how to go about getting a DSL screen placed and how much it would cost? I was wondering about how this could become necessary in the future...




    Anyway, I use HORI screen protectors and they work great. [​IMG]
