    Just like the title says, I'd like to know how matched up are the screen protectors for the DSi. I'm asking because I ordered the Hori ones from Deal Extreme but they're back ordered and they'll take ages to arrive. I also have the option to buy Invisi Shields from Pelican locally (I'm in mexico). So, is it worth to forego the Hori protectors which will take at least a month to arrive to buy the pelican protectors now?

    Use any protector you want until the Hori arrives. Hori is still the best you can buy. Had mine on for almost 3 months and still no scratches, with heavy stylus use too.

    ok, will do, however I still have a doubt, can the screen protectors be reused? I ask this because, I might as well sell the pelican screen protector when I'm done with it.

    As it was said before Hori are the best but if your ordering them from dealextreme there probably fake and the full cover dsi invisi shield would probably be better.

    Well, I bought this one http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.18639 which I guess it's the legit version (I think) and as for the invisi shields I think it's just for the screens it's not the full cover version.

    For the ds lite, I used the Invisi Shields for a long time before I changed to the cheap ones at Dealextreme. The Invisi Shields were impossible for me to scratch (even through EBA & Ouedan). The thing I didn't like tho is (especially when the temperature warms up), the screen becomes "rubbery/sticky". It made for playing games more annoying to me since I always felt a resistance when using the stylus. After I changed to the cheapo ones from Dealextreme, I liked the feeling a lot better. The screen protector scratches like there's no tomorrow, but the stylus moved smoothly across the screen. Eventually, there's so many scratches that I couldn't tell when I scratched it anymore and stopped noticing it.

    I used Invisi-Shield for a while, but it began to feel weird so I took it off. Maybe you'll have a better experience with Hori.

    I got some JAVOEdge screen protectors from Amazon, and they're really nice. I tore up a Pelican one playing Rhythm Heaven, but there are no scratches in the new one after a month of use. They say that you can easily take them off and reuse them, but I haven't tried that, yet. Highly recommended.

    I had Hori protectors for my DSi, they were perfect in the short time I had them.

    ive had my dsi for a couple weeks and have had a screen protector from "best skins ever" from the start.

    ive never played ds before now but the screen is accurate and works great even in stylus heavy games like wario ware.

    its only 6 bucks for both screens covered. 2 dollar shipping.
    similar to invisible shield but cost a lot less.

    Yes, I think so. They're more expensive in comparison to the fake ones that are also on DealExtreme and I think "genuine" indicates, that those a the real deal [​IMG]

    So, I hear lots of different things about Hori screen protectors. Some say it's really awesome, no scratches at all. But then there are people who are not thrilled at all. Right now I'm using Screen Guard DSi from Keys Factory and I noticed tiny scratches after some hours of usage and believe me, I'm really very careful. Also I think it depends on the stylus. I have a Zelda stylus, tested it on my touch screen and there it was – a light scratch on the surface of the screen protector. Then I used a retractable metal stylus, which was okay but wasn't very smooth on the surface. The original DSi stylus also was just okay.

    Next time I plan to get Hori protectors. I hope they're really worth it.
