Write On Display Protector
« on: March 01, 2005, 12:01:28 pm »
I am looking for a write on screen protector. There is a guy on ebay who sells custom cut display protectors which fit perfectly, but they are extremely difficult to apply with a satisfactory low level of bubbles and tend to darken the screen some.  Some quick googleing turned up a lot of plastic flip up screens for sale and many sites selling for the ipaq or other non zaurus pda's. A display protector is for me essential, if it is for you where do you get them? Zaurus specific supplies and accessories seem to get harder and harder to find now that sharp killed the line in the US. Please point me in the right direction.

You know, honestly I cut my own out of a piece of overhead transparency, just a wee bit larger than the screen and with wee snips at the corners was able to insert the edges under the edges of the screen.  It works quite handily.

I spent 40 cents on a transparency this morning and gave it a go. It seems to work fine. Thanks for the tip.

I have also made my own with transparency film, but I have to say that mine scratch very easily. After a very short time, they look very scuffed up. Concerning the Brando ones, how long do they last? $13.00 is a little steep unless they last at least a year. And I don't see that they make them for the SL-6000. Does anyone which size would fit my 4 inch screen?
