Got some WriteRights

Love 'em to death, better than my home brewn thing. Anyways 1 question: Any tricks to applying them? It was hard to get it off the piece of paper, then I got it on my Visor and now I got lots of mini-air bubbles you can see when viewing from certain angles. I love these a lot though .

Do not remove the WriteRight completely from the paper and then apply. Peel back about an inch and get it started, then move slowly up the screen with the included tool. It is pretty much impossible to do it without bubbles, but most of them can be worked out and the rest will usually go away in a couple of days.

I start from the top of the screen and work down. I keep the film
on the backing and work it off as needed. I also put a few
small drops of water at the top and squeegee the water down
as I apply the film. This helps keep out bubbles. At the bottom, I
use a paper towel to dry up the remaining water.

When your WriteRights are used up (or you tear them off in sheer frustration ), you might try some other options:

www.brando.com.hk- the Brando protector is pretty dang good! It applies easier, with fewer bubbles. This protector has been discussed a LOT around here.

www.pdascreenprotectors.com. Their G2 is also great- and it does not use adhesives, so there are almost no bubbles. You need to be careful of dust and smudges on the screen before putting it on, though.

www.nushield.com offers another 'slip-in' protector. I have not tried these, though.

I don't see any reason to switch. And please don't try to push
them on us. We can all read the other posts that praise them.

Sorry! Not trying to evangelize, just offering other options for fewer air bubbles. You guys already mentioned the best ways to install the WriteRights- or nearly any adhesive-based protectors.

NuShield works for me

I bought the Nushield brand and I still have the first film in after 6 months. I am not a heavy graffiti user. My friend who uses WRiteWrites had to change his out after 4 weeks because it tore up.

I gave him one of my NuShields and now he loves it too.

I've been using WriteRights for about 9 months now and I've found that I only need to change them every other month or so.

And YES, I am a heavy user. The little "squeege" tool does a pretty good job of taking out the bubbles using the methods listed above.

I decided I would test how long my write-rights last. I just put on a new one last Thursday (3/28/02). I'll come back later and let you know how long it lasts.

Changing screen protectors

How would you like to go for four months or more without changing your screen protector. I've had my Nushield in for 6 months and it still looks new.

Post Re; Got some writerights today

I got some writerights today as well.
I really like that they drastically improve the accurracy of graffiti, and that they take the glare off of the visor--I can read the thing without having to shift it around out of direct light, that is a major plus. I really didn't have a lot of trouble putting it on, just some very tiny air bubbles off to the side.
On the downside the sharpness has suffered, particularly if you like to read it with the backlight on when its dark. But for the overall protection, better graffiti writing, but most of all to be rid of much of the glare problem--I think it is worth the small loss of clarity. I have read posts about other protectors, and they sound like they have a lot of advantages as well, but I don't remember seeing much said about them reducing the glare like the writeright screen protector does.

Sticky WriteRights

Congratulations, just wait till you have to take it off in a month because it is all scratched up. It won't be pretty. Be carefull not to scratch the screen when you do it. Remember to use some screen wipes to remove the sticky goo that is left behind before you install a new one.

I used WriteRights for a long time and never had a problem removing them.

They are a lot easier to take off than they are to put on.

I've had the current WriteRight on my Prism since November.
It just now needs to be replaced. I am a power user using at
least 4-5 hours per day. At this rate, they'll last 4 years!

Well I just got through putting the new one on.

(the new one went on 7/14/02--nearly 4 months later). I consider myself a "power user" as I am constantly using my VDX--although I may not be using it to it's fullest capacity. Also note that when I previously said "every other month or so" I was only guessing.

What I did here was mark the date that I changed my WriteRight both ocassions.

WriteRights are held on by static cling. There is no glue at all.

The invisible sticky goo

It might not be visible to the naked eye, but any adhesive leaves residue behind when you take it off. Otherwise, it wouldn't stick.

If you didn't clean the screen before you put a new adhesive film down you could have started a build-up of adhesive on your PDA. If you keep it up, you could loose some clarity over time.

This is why non-adhesive screen protectors like G2 and NuShield work better. Also, instead of having to remove your adhesive film after a month as per the manufacturer's own suggestion, with these two product you would not have had to change the screen protectors for at least 6 months.

Adhesive backed screen protectors are old technology, before they discovered how to do it right.

Did you not read my post just before yours? WriteRights DO NOT
HAVE ANY ADHESIVE! It is a vinyl film held on by static cling! I have
been using them for over 2 years and NONE of them have EVER
had any adhesives.
