    I have a screen protector only 2 monthes, and almost in 3 hours of playing it was filled by scraches.
    It was Hori. How often do u change it? (searched similar topics, not found)

    It's called "screen protectors". Search for that.

    Hori screen protectors are the best, but they get scratches too. How often you have to replace them depends on what games you play and how much you use the touch screen. Games that rely on the touch screen cause the protector to become scrached much earlier. But 3 hours is way too short [​IMG]
    The usual is a few months.

    Maybe you bought fake Hori screen protectors. There is a lot of those around.

    See this thread or this one for more info.

    "screen protectors", yes, i remembered. So many words in brain [​IMG].
    veho, u answered on all my questions. Tnx.
    It was original Hori. Saing "3 hours" i mean - scraches appeared. Further - more and more of them.
    Sorry 4 my english.

    I don't use screen protectors. My DSLite gets about 3 hours of playtime a day between my wife and me, since June, and still no scratches. I'm not going easy on it either ... Ouendan, EBA, bowling in Clubhouse Games, etc.

    Do you use a cloth to wipe it after?

    Make sure you use a micro-cloth, since some of the bigger ones don't work as well.

    I bought some crappy ones at a local market, and I've been playing games like Polarium, Meteos, EBA, etc. and they all require a ton of stylus use, and I have yet to see a scratch. They're no-name kinds too...

    Mostly I use my t-shirt. [​IMG]
    I also sometimes clean the screen with a dampened Q-tip.

    that's it.

    I dont use screen protecters no more.. Ruins the experience.
    Not as fun, it doesnt slide as well. I used to be paranoid of scratches, but you get over it.
    I love scratches now.

    Ah, it's really pain in the ass.

    Yesterday I used my extending 3rd party stylus (Gametech) while playing PoR. The screen got awfully scratched in 30 minutes. In damn 30 minutes!
    I had to take my screen protectors off (they were Hori ones). And it was hard to take them off. Well, in the end I used a toothpick, 'cause wood can't scratch a screen. Well, now I need to buy a pair of new ones. The funny thing is that I used that stylus for around 2 months with no probs at all. Somehow it got messy, it seems. I get I'll have to stick to the original one from now on.

    My touchscreen is in PERFECT condition though, as I never use it without a screen protector. I'm VERY anal about my DS.

    Burunduk, you really need to change your "face plate", learn some English dammit.

    wohoo,
    Have you played through Kirby Canvas Curse or some other game with the heavy use of stylus on your DS?
