Re: [NTLK] Exact Measurement of Newton 2000 Screen

Until this discussion Ihad never used the WriteRight screen protectors. I had used Nusheild protectors or none. The Nusheild protectors slide under the screen bezel and are relatively easy to install. I usuall preferred to use nothing because of the improved readability.
I decided to give the WriteRight protectors a try. I found installing it a pain. And it took a second try to get it satisfactorily done. But well worth the effort. The view of the display is certainly changed as the ribbed texture is most visible, yet I can stioll read it rather well. What I like most is the impact upon my hand writing, it has markedly improved that experience.

I suspect that the one you have installed is in fact WriteRight.

My first impresions are good.

Woody, do you recall what the surface of the WriteRight looked/felt like?

The protector that is currently deployed on my 2100 has a structured, texture-like surface; no glare. I'm not sure that's a WriteRight, though. Fact is, it's very sturdy (I have never changed it, it's still in perfect condition). And I have just discovered that I still have 10 WriteRights sitting in that envelope... but I'd hate to pull one out now just to see what it feels like, since the one on the Newt is still doing fine. But if there's 10 in that envelope, couldn't the one on my device be a different brand? If so, does my description ring a bell as to what brand it might be?

As for sensitivity, I would imagine that all screen protectors impact the feel in one way or another.
