    I find my Nushield SP to have some 'traction' feel and is not as smooth
    as on the bare glass screen. It is not perfect 'paper-like'...but it seems to
    work fine for me. Just press a little harder on the screen once the SP is
    installed and you'll get that resistance feel.

    I am not sure if it will work to your personal liking.
    Sometimes we just have to improvise...I guess.

    I was wondering if anyone has considered the EXIM screen protector and the one by clearfreak offered on ebay for the slate 500?

    For those of you who are looking for a screen protector besides the ones previously mentioned. Do not waste your money on the one from EXIM on eBay. It is made for a device much smaller than the slate, even though the ad says HP Slate 500 don't believe it.

    The EXIM company contacted me and appologized for their misrepresentation. They plan on producing a screen protectors for the slate in the right size. They asked for the dimensions and the curve radius. Which I sent them from this thread. I also sent them a slate protector from another company to aid them. I received the skinomi protector, which is a wet application one. Since my slate has yet to arrive, it's due wednesday. I'm somewhat hesitant to apply it when my slate does arrive.

    I have been testing two different samples, one matt ad one clear, made by a German manufacturer Specialised n SPs for all sort of different devices including ipads.
    As for as I can tell both SPs are very good and do not have any drawbacks. the matt /Antiglare version has a little more drag during inking; the "clear" 'version has 99% the feeling of the Slate.

    I already spoke to the manufacturer and sent them the dimensions plus a scan of the slate so that they can work out the position of the camera and corner radius.

    I will keep the post updated as soon as I have more info:D :D :D

    For those slate owners who are still considering a screen protector, I can highly recommend the one from EXIM who sell off of eBay. I recieved two anti-glare protectors today and they are very well made and easy to install. The corners are accurate and it does reduce the glare. I don't do inking, but I tried writing through wordpad and it did very well. I have not experienced any problems with it interfering with the digital stylus at all. Not bad for $20.00 for two including free shipping.

    Just received and applied the PDAir screen protector. Custom fit to HP slate with notch for front camera. Easy applied with only a couple of air bubbles on black trim. N-trig works great. Flicks are smooth. It's a keeper.

    <<...Strong Engineering sells a static cling AG SP...>>

    ...I don't have any direct experience with this particular version of SP, but I was not overly impressed with the one Strong Engineering SP that I tested a few years ago.

    I would expect an SP that works by static attraction to have an adverse effect on the N-trig digitizer.
