If you want a cheap screen protector then you have come to the right place. Screen protectors are a necessary for cell phones and iPods and virtually any electronic device with a display. Protecting that display will keep your electronics looking good for a long time and the plastic protector will be the one taking all of the damage, not the expensive Droid or iPhone.
Now cheap doesn’t always have to mean poor quality sometimes good deals on screen protectors can be found through wise shopping and expending the effort to find a cheap screen protector can help save money to be used on other things like iTunes downloads or special ring tones. Many screen protectors come in multi-packs of either 3 or 5 so if you buy one of these setups you probably have enough protectors to last until your contract is up and it is time for a new phone. If you are buying them for an iPod or other mp3 player you will probably need another pack of 5 protectors before it’s time for a new iPod.
Cheap screen protectors for the Nook, Kindle and Sony’s Reader are around, but you might not want to go cheap with these devices. Since you are reading books and other normally printed media, like newspapers and magazines you want these displays to be as nice and clear as possible for as long as possible. The jury is still out on whether e-readers will supplant printed matter as the choice for most people, but they sales are growing every year and more and more things are available in e-book form. Remember what happened to the Sony Beta, the same thing could happen to printed books if none of the publishers are watching. The e-readers usually have two separate displays, one is a touch screen and the other is the display you read through. Both deserve protection and one isn’t any more important to protect than the other. A touch screen that is damaged and won’t function anymore is just as much a problem as a display screen that gets a scratch across it and fouls up easy reading.
Screen protectors are necessary for protecting equipment and cheap screen protectors will also do the same job, they just might not stay on as long as the better, higher quality screen protectors do and they might not protect quite as well as the more expensive one will. The main issue for electronic devices is that if they have a display they need a screen protector and a cheap one is better than no protector at all.
