Earlier today I received my order from BuyComp containing the WriteRight
Screen Enhancements by Concept Kitchen. I was pleased they had finally
arrived after about a week and a half of waiting. Making purchases by money
order usually ends up in a rather large wait period! Here are my first
impressions of the WriteRights...
5:20 - Pulled WriteRight container from the box BuyComp sent
5:21 - Opened container discovering that is the same style container that
DVD discs are packaged in. Even has a CD-looking piece of cardboard in the
CD holder outlining how to install a WriteRight.
5:22 - Read over instructions and pulled out my PalmPilot, cleaning the
screen with a soft lens cloth.
5:23 to 5:27 - Applied the WriteRight to my screen trying my best to keep
it aligned and air bubble free. Used the credit-card sized squeegee
included with the product to finish it off. In the process of applying the
WriteRight, two particles of dust became attached to the sticky side of the
WriteRight. I also had quite a few air bubblesin the graffiti area. These
defects are not visible while looking straight at the screen, but by turning
the PalmPilot slightly you can see them. Wondering if they will affect my
5:28 - Turned my PalmPilot on and wrote a few things in Memo Pad. Makes
funny noises while dragging the stylus across the screen. Nothing major.
Tried writing where the air bubbles were to find that they did not affect my
writing at all. I did notice it was a little bit harder to read the screen.
The film seems to "lighten" what is being displayed. Turned on backlight
and could not tell any difference from when I did not have a WriteRight
5:57 - After playing with my PalmPilot for a little while, I was used to
writing with the film on it. Feels much more natural, like the box says it
would. Overall I think I am pleased with the enhancement.
Perhaps my next attempt to apply the WriteRight will be a tad more
successful. Although the visible defects from the air bubbles and particles
are not function-impairing, they are a little annoying to look at.
PROS - Enhances the feel of writing on the screen, reduces glare, and
protects from scratches.
CONS - Difficult to apply properly.
By the way, how do you remove these things without damaging the screen? I
found no instructions with the product packaging.
My overall rating of this product is 7 (on a scale of 1 to 10).
