    why do people need screen protectors for the DS lite, what exactly does it protect against and as the screens easily damaged?

    If i bought a decent Hori protector does it show on the screen and effect anyhting like th epicture of the useability of the touch screen?

    Cheers

    I've had both versions of the ds and not a scratch on either, I haven't used a screen protector. They seem pretty robust, I wouldnt say they were easily damaged if you take reasonable care of them. although the shoulder buttons on the lite really pick up dirt.

    Mine had stayed scratch free, but I bought a screen protector when I started playing Osu Tatakae Ouendan. I'm not convinced it would have remained scratch free after a few sessions on that.

    I bought the Hori screen protectors from Play-Asia and they were excellent and are literally unnoticeable.
