For me, I've found in low and high light conditions, the NuShields work

During the in between times they do seem to cut down on visibility.

However, after removing the past 3-4 NuShields, and seeing what they have
prevented scratch and abrasion wise, I will continue to use them 100% of
the time.

...after all, there is no replacement in sight...

And once you've scratched your screen, you can't unscratch (if there is
such a word) it!

...and after seeing what happened to my Newt 110, with a what I thought
was a clean stylus, I will always use a screen protector.
