    Are they any good at this store, I see the price is much cheaper, do they compare at all? Also would love to know about those 4 dollar batteries.

    shoptemp uses the same supplier.
    not much more info, I think those should do the trick...
    I've been using a screen protector for my n95 phone, i bought the protector in a random store at a super cheap price, it works fine really.
    just a sticky piece of plastic you put on the screen.

    Guessing if I lay it on correctly the first time air bubbles wont happen...? That guy seemed to mess up.

    It's pretty hard... definitely not as easy as you think. Try finding some guides on YouTube and you should do alright. I got one small bubble, but it's barely noticeable and it's on the edge of the screen.

    I bought official Hori ones at DealExtreme, but I'm not completely sure if they're real. In any case, you shouldn't buy random ones like Costello says. For my DS Phat I got really bad protectors that weren't smooth enough. Whatever you did, the protector would scratch. It's almost impossible to look through it now; I can only play on my DS Phat in the dark with the backlight on.

    Because I'm pretty dumb when it comes to putting screen protectors on my DS, I just gave up.

    I can never get it right without at least a little bit of dust, an air bubble, or a print. Damn annoying. [​IMG]

    However, I still don't have any scratches on either of my DS's. It doesn't seem easy to scratch it up.

    I have a Hori one on one of my older PSP's and I somehow got that one on without screwing it up. It's very clear. A big difference from the absolutely awful Pelican one I had on it before.

    But wouldn't the same go for the hori with being hard to apply?
