I think I got confused by this comment, thinking that the speckling issue is worse with glossy screens. My IS performs poorly outdoors due to the scratches all over the place. Outdoor visibility was quite good w/o the protector, but because I use the resistive touch a lot for scrolling, I get greasy "skid marks" on the corners of the screen. I think I'm gonna try the photodon clear I'll get back to this when I get it. Thx!
