    How important is it to use protective screens for the DS? I heard the stylus can scratch your DS, so I've been afraid to play my DS much because I don't want to scratch my touch screen.

    Very important I always use protective filter, you can buy good quality hori ones on www.playasia.com
    or hori ripoffs for 1.50 $ on www.dealextreme.com (tried one today and looks good)

    I should hold off on playing my DS with the stylus then. Thank you!

    I think I'd rather buy the Hori ones... I know how ripoffs go. They tend to look okay for a while, then turn to crap and be worthless.

    Good choice, it's very easy to install. The best tip I can give you is to install in the bathroom with a hot shower on. The steam suppresses the lint/dust particles. [​IMG]

    Your stylus cant scratch your DS if it is blunt, which every Stylus should be (the one that comes with the ds is blunt)

    I have a pair of Hori ones on my DS since 2006 [​IMG]

    They're without doubts the best you could ever find [​IMG]

    Dust particles can get between the stylus tip and the touch screen. Then it's gg.
    But screen protectors look so nasty and noticeable, plus they're a pain to apply.

    I've had fake horis for a very long time, they have no bubbles, applied perfectly, and are still going great.

    If you have a little extra money, get an InvisibleShield. I have them for my DS and my phone and they have worked great for me.

    Had my Genuine Hori for 2 months. I'm the type that really can mess up screens. Hell, there's so many scratches, it's crazy. Until I got my SP. Now, the protecter is perfectly fine, with just one light scratch, and perfectly good.

    I have zero scratches on my screen... I don't press very hard, but I would still like to buy the protective screens.
