    when i purchased my psp in december of 2005 i also bought a hori screen protector for it and haven't had any problems. but today the screen protector became uneven (seems it slowly slid it's way to the lower right corner of my screen) and i had to take it off to reapply it. when i was reapplying i kept noticing small little pieces of lint and dust. i took off the protector and cleaned the lint off. went to reapply again and once again...dust and lint. went to reapply a third time and still the same result. i even went outside (was really mad at this point) and tried to reapply...still lint and dust. so at this point my psp is sitting on my table collecting...dust. seems kind of stupid to charge people 5+ dollars for something that difficult to apply. what bothers me most is that i got it perfect the first time i applied it...then this crap started.
    anyone else really paranoid about their psp's screen?

    Man forget about a screen protector just keep your PSP in a case and it will be fine, what i found is that the PSP has a very resilliant coating on its screen anyway, to be honest the little scratches are part and parcel of the PSP and there is no point trying to avoid them completely, if you take good care of the unit it will remain to look good....

    well i went to my local ebgames and picked up 2 hori screen protectors. after some yelling and cursing i finally got one on with the least amount of dust and lint i could (packaging tape contact to take off fingerprints and dust) and joy! it's on fairly even and despite a few tiny pieces of lint (got the majority out) that arent noticible even during a game, i couldnt be happier. also, any of you psp owners actually use the soft case that comes with the psp?

    Always. I don't have a screen protector. the case keeps scratches off and it can keep water away from the actual psp if some drips on it.

    I have the Hori screen protector on both my PSP and my iPod, I just bought a second and cut it down to fit over the iPod screen. They really are life savers, I never worry about scratches and fingerprints are less noticable. I use the soft case that came with my PSP to bring it with me, it does the job for me. FYI, go buy Tokobot, it is a really fun game.

    ok here goes:
    the came is about the robots called tokobots. you control the tokobots which u can use to solve puzzles and fight. you the player have 3 formations you can pick from to pull off "Joint actions" most of the time you will be solving puzzles and contoling the bots. the boards are rich in color and it never gets boring. check it out at gamespot.com

    On my pocket pc I have a screen protector that is 'washable'. You peel it off, clean it under running cold water, let it dry and reapply it.

    Works fine, don't know if the same works with a psp screen protector (I would guess so).

    While the end result is ok-ish, it is still less pristine than when you buy a new one of course...

    well the hori screen protector for psp (easily the best choice. adhesive-less and reuseable) is covered with a silicone coat, which is why it "sticks" to the psp's screen. washing it, i believe, will ruin it's stick.

    the I.S. is kinda clunky. i personally love the feel of my "naked" psp. it just feels in my hands better naked then if it were inside a playgear pocket (that uber-popular case that out sells the psp itself :D )
