3.0 out of 5 stars Works fine, but the price... wow!, December 28, 2010

This review is from: Sony PCKLM1AM Semi-Hard Plastic LCD Screen Cover Protector for Alpha Camera Models (Camera)
OK, I realize that as soon as you buy into the Sony NEX system, everything gets pretty expensive... but... sheesh!... this is essentially a thicker/stiffer version of a cell phone screen protector that you can get on eBay for all of a couple of bucks. That's really my only complaint: The price is much higher than I'd expect, even given the Sony NEX branding.

Now, as to the performance... while I haven't tried the other screen protectors as the other reviewer has, it does work just fine: It looks sharp, goes on easily, adheres quite well (but not so well you can't remove it if you need to reposition it), and looks as though it really will protect the LCD from anything up to about 25 grit sandpaper.

While the instructions suggest lining up the upper left edge of the protector with the edge of the LCD, I found that leaves the protector a bit to the left of center -- I suggest using the left and right borders of the LCD (which is ever-so-slightly narrower than the screen protector's transparent portion) and equalizing their widths to establish the true center.

I didn't see this product on Sony's web site, but I think it's a better idea that the one they show that's a thicker plastic that snaps around the edges of the LCD: That one doesn't appear to form an air-tight seal to the screen, so small particles such as sand might still manage to sneak underneath and scratch the LCD, plus I don't think it looks as nice, adding a bit to the camera body's thickness. (With this protector the tallest part on the back of the camera is still the ridges on the jog dial -- although by no more than a millimeter, I think!)
