Default I'm changing my opinion of Zagg screen protectors

I've been using these on my SGP and my previous mp3 player and in general have been pretty satisfied.

A couple of months ago, after 5 months of use, the plastic film failed when I stuck the device in my back pocket for a minute (I usually keep it in a pouch), and the film peeled back at the top and stuck to itself. About an inch of the film peeled back. Zagg would replace it but I had to register it and then send in the old film, stuck to paper, etc. I just decided to buy another and be done with it. I carefully followed the instructions; I've done this a couple of times before. Ended up with a couple of bubbles near the top that wont go away. I've noticed a couple of small scratches on the film since.

Just now, I was polishing it with an eyeglass-care cloth, and the back of my thumbnail scratched the plastic while I was wiping. Put a 2" scratch in the film that I cannot get out. My thumbnail! This is supposed to resist keys, etc.

Also, I'm getting tired of the "spongy" plasticy feeling of the material when I brush my finger across for scrolling. especially in high humidity. It's not a "glassy" feeling. more like brushing your finger across rubber.

So, when this goes, I'll probably just opt for no screen protector. Not worth it.
