Default LCD Protectors

Do any of you use the screen protectors on your LCD? I normally wouldn't use one of these but I've really scratched up the screen on my FZ28. It bangs on the buckle of my hunting vest on quail trips.

I'd kind of like to keep my FZ35 screen looking good if these things are not more trouble than they are worth.

Brand recommendations, if any?

I used some that I had left over from my LG Dare phone. The "bundle" from the place I bought the camera came with a few. They were OK. Can't really recommend one over the other. But they do protect.

I use GGS 2.7" glass protector. It's easier to apply than the plactic one and it leaves no air bubble.

I have the Giottos screen protector. A bit steeper in price than some others but it uses Schott glass. They have protectors for most camera models.

I have a boxwave antiglare (they have a clear and an antiglare). I don't love it, but it does the job and lots of other people seem to highly recommend them. It cuts down on the glare, but I feel like it adds a little bit of a fuzziness. Anyway, if you're interested you can find them on boxwave.com. I bought the one for the FZ28.

If you are really abusive to the camera the schott glass it the route go. But you only have light scratches. The LCD film works fine.

I need one for my DMC-FZ35, but I always have a problem with dust,
and this sort of thing, PDAs and other gear, no mater what I have done,
there is always dust on the screen, I clean it off and suddenly more
dust settles on the LCD, I tried the hot shower trick, were you leave
the shower running hoping it cleans the air, and have tried air filters,
Hepa and Ionic air purifiers, nothing works,
