Worse, they're just *too* adhesive. I had to try three different times before I got one installed well enough to be usable, and I still ended up with a few trapped air bubbles which were impossible to remove. And you won't reuse one; if you have to peel it off, you might as well just toss it. I found installing two different models of pre-cut screen protectors to be much easier... no cutting, no air bubbles, perfect fit.
The other significant difference is the feel. Palm's screen protectors have a somewhat "soft" surface and feel more like the original screen; most other brands have a harder surface which is glare free, but also make writing slightly more difficult.
The price is hard to argue with, and if you use multiple Palms it's a lot easier to keep track of just one package of screen protectors. But it'll probably take a few tries to get one to fit, and it'll be sheer luck if you can get one installed without any trapped bubbles.
This package represents a barely reasonable compromise between price, convenience and usability.
The price is great.
The convenience however is marginal. You get a sheet that has the outlines of most popular Palm devices printed on the back. The object is to cut along the outline of your device and, voila, you have a screen protector that fits.
That's the idea --- the reality is different.
The outlines, at least for my two devices, are dimensionally accurate along the vertical dimension IF you cut precisely along the outside perimeter of the outline. Got that? You must cut on the outside of the line. Cut along the middle of the line or on the inside of the line and your finished screen protector will be too short along the vertical.
Worse, the horizontal printed outlines are too small. Cut along the outside of the horizontal lines and you wind up with about 1/16th of an inch too little on either side.
Fortunately I had a rotary cutter available, the kind used by quilters and craftspeople. I wouldn't want to try cutting these with scissors.
The adhesive is just about right to create a good bond with the screen while still having enough give to allow for removal or repositioning. (By the way, a wooden toothpick works well for lifting applied screen protectors. Just be careful.)
In short, the Palm screen protectors are needlessly frustrating to prepare and install. Once down, they serve the purpose and the price, compared to the competition, can't be beat.
Palm really owes users of this product an apology for the poor printing of the template outlines. There's no excuse for this slovenliness.
The application is as difficult as it gets. My tip is to use a credit card, or similar, as help. Apply it at one edge, and then use the card sliding over the screen protector as you apply it, in order to remove any bubbles.
The feel is great when writing on it.
