    i use the anti fingerprint and it works well. why would u want a hard one? so the touchscreen is less responsive?

    Crystal is the way to go... IMHO

    I have the crystal on my Droid X and I love it. Installation was super easy. The reason I recommend the crystal over the anti-fingerprint is that the matte finish on the AF takes away some of the clarity of the display. My friend has one on a TP2 and it definitely makes the screen look noticeably less crisp. I suppose if you are the type who would be constantly having to wipe your screen, the trade-off would be worth it. I don't think the crystal is any 'harder' than the AF, both are essentially a static protector similar to the myriad others available.

    I went with anti fingerprint.

    I hope it doesn't take away from the brilliance of the screen though! I have not heard of anyone saying that...but your point makes sense!

    I hope I didn't just waste $12!!!!

    It's not *horrible* but you will notice a slight difference... Let us know how it goes. I also didn't see the Touch Pro 2 before he installed his, I can only assume what it looked like prior. He did say he had wished he got the crystal though... :-\

    The matte finish does tone down the screen a bit but I like the feel of it.
    In my case I leave a lot of finger prints so not having to clean the screen constantly is a real plus.
    I tried going with out a protector and it was always smuggy (new word).
    I hope you enjoy it as much as I have...

    I chose the anti-fingerprint one. Slightly less clarity well worth the feel and cleanliness...

    I think the anti fingerprint one works amazing(at least when i had my iphone) but it does make everything look a little fuzzy. So this time i went with the crystal since the screen is why i bought the droid x.

    I actually have them both I had the the anitfingerprint one on for about 3 weeks and loved it but it cut down on the clarity of the screen so i bought the ultra clear one from sgp and just put it on a couple of days ago and I love it even more. It is so clear it looks like a new phone to me since i took off the antifingerprint one I dont care i will wipe the smudges off from the crystal clear one all the time for the clarity i am getting with it

    Do you find that, if your fingers are wet (sweat) that you have trouble swiping the screen??
    I know I did when I was running with no protection on the Gorilla glass...

    I don't have the problem with the anti finger print version so much...
