My hands are always dirty as I do not work in an office environment so I pretty much have to put a screen protector on it if I want it to last any amount of time.
May I ask why you dont use screen protectors?

I have a Zagg on my 9700 but have been reluctant to put one on my PB. My concern is how well it will react to the finger with the protector on.
I'm not really concerned about it getting dirty, it cleans up great. I am more concerned with the screen getting scratched. Right now I am very careful but in time I'm sure I will get a little lax.
So I will continue to search the threads to see how others like it.

I have noticed, for my Torch, that having a screen protector on didn't really do much for me. It seemed to attract my fingerprints a lot more then the naked screen did. So I am just keeping my PB's screen naked. It does attract quite a bit of finger prints, but the PB's screen is so easy to clean.

just got mine yesterday from boxwave.com where I always get my screen protectors from. piece of cake to apply, no bubbles, touch is fine, almost don't even notice its there.
I've used boxwave for a long time and have never had any residue issues.

Definitely, must always have a screen protector on all my devices. Not because I'm dirty or careless because I'm not, but just in case, and it keeps them looking brand new. I just buy mine from Handhelditems.com as they are dirt cheap there while still great quality, still have my iPad one on I got from there when I bought it about a year ago and still on perfectly and looks fine. Never did like the Zagg or similar ones, they are too pricey and hard as heck to put on and they feel tacky.
While I wait for the one I ordered to get here last night I took one of the 2 extra iPad ones I have and actually cut it down to size freehand and somehow it turned out really well, and when I put it on there's 0 air bubbles or particles trapped underneath, not sure how I did that because usually there will be a couple, I may just leave this on when my Otterbox Defender comes in.

I purchased the Zagg Invisible shield and had my local Bestbuy install it,
I allowed the recommended 24 hour "cure" time. That has been a week ago today, it gives me a piece of mind knowing its there. The "orange peel" effect has diminished a little over time and I'm glad I went ahead with the protection. I would hate to scratch this $600 screen when it only cost $35 to protect!!

For those who fear the touch screen response would suffer if you put a protector on it - I can say that it has no impact on my ability to navigate around my PB. I havent noticed any problem with it - the screen protector even extends to the outer bezel and Im able to sweep up and down with no issues.
I did clean the screen thoroughly no there isnt any dirt under it but I do have a few air bubbles. Doesnt really bother me. For me - I would rather keep the screen pristine and look at a bubble or two then risk damaging the capacitive components being damaged from my grubby hands.

GA shows NO Orange peel after two days and all the tiny bubbles and wrinkles disappearing after installation. It's almost impossible to tell it's on there when just looking at the screen!
