    Although the thought of it scares me to pieces this guy claims to have used it successfully. Let us know how you go...

    The worst that could happen is you can give yourself a real good excuse to pick up a red one.....

    brasso + touchscreen = can't possibly be good.

    I've got a lot of tiny hairline marks on my screen too (damn Nintendogs!). They're too small & fine to call scratches, in my opinion. Hopefully the marks on your screen are like mine - they really only show up if I'm looking for them, and when a game is running they're just about completely impossible to see.

    My advice is to play a fun game and take your mind off 'em. For an inexpensive gizmo with a touchscreen I think the DS holds up really well (though I'd love it if you could buy some cheap touchscreen replacement).

    I got those same scratches on my DS's first week playing WarioWare. I agree that I've never even noticed them since though. You really have to go looking on the right angle in the right light.

    p.s. I can recommend one of those cheap screen protectors too i-Apple. If you restore you screen/decide to leave it how it is it will ensure the finish on your screen won't head south again.

    get the screen protectors which are licensed by Nintendo. If you mess up your top screen, let me know.

    When I had a PSP I bought a screen protector, when I got my iPod I got an invisibleshield, however when I got my DS I didn't bother. The bottom screen is pretty resistant, though I do have a few scratches I never notice them, and they most certainly do not detract from gameplay. As for Brasso? Using that makes my stomach turn over, but I guess it would do the job.

    im actually too scared to use the brasso now, i think ill probably wait till the scratches actually effect my gameplay, its just an eye sore right now, still just bearable :p

    i got another question, does your colour on the ds screens seem a little faint in colour, i compared mine to the screenshots on the official site, and it seems ALOT weaker in colour, i hope this is universal, thanks :)

    Dude, they always make photos on the official site look better than the real thing. ALWAYS. Since we can't actually see your screen, we can't really tell you if your "faded" is a bad "faded" or a normal "faded". My screens look pretty damn vibrant and sharp, but they don't look as vibrant or sharp as those photos.
