    I am trying decide whether or not to put a screen protector on my Transformer so wanted to get opinions. I know the screen is made of Gorilla glass so just not sure if it really needs one.

    Does the screen protector affect the touch screen capabilities at all? Also, I mainly use my Transformer docked with the keyboard - over time I am worried that the screen protector will peel away where it docks....any one have any experience with this?

    thanks everybody for your feedback.

    I have had a Skinomi (from Amazon) on mine since week #1, back in May2011. Still looks like the day I installed it, and I dock/undock several times per day.

    They don't affect the touch sensitivity at all- in fact finger slides a little better.

    There are others out there, this one you have to apply "wet" and takes some practice. (I'd tinted a van window or two previously.) Key is using lots of solution, but if you get too much solution on the tablet you could possibly destroy it.

    That is an impressive test.
    It kinda hurts to see the bow and arrow bit though...

    Holy crap! lol

    No screen protector on mine either. That video made me feel better about my decision.
