Thanks for the tip.
I wish I'd have known about this a few weeks ago because I bought the Seidio Surface combo at full price from Seidio. I really like the case though.
I think the comments about damaging the screen protector when installing the case must be either user error, or poor fitting screen protectors.
I use the Spigen Ultra Ortho and it has enough clearance to the edge where the case dosn't interfere with it when the case is installed.
