Yoga 13 Screen Protector?

2012-11-06, 2:06 AM

Has anyone purchased the screen protector from Lenovo for the Yoga 13? or an aftermarket one? if so, how does it feel? is touch screen sensitivity decreased at all? how is the display quality? im thinking about getting one as I don't like cleaning my screen every other day.. but if the screen protector is a nuisance, ill just have to live with cleaning the screen (which is not a major hassle). I have a smartphone with touch screen and used to have the ZAGG protector for it, but removed it after a few months as I didn't like the display after putting it on. any input about this would be greatly appreciated. thx

I did purchase the one from Lenovo.  I do not know if there is a sensitivity difference because I placed it before I used it. I do find that it sometimes does not register a swipe in from the left to pull out the charms bar.

 

I also find that this protector is just as glossy as the normal screen, "needing" cleaning just as often, and having a large amount of glare if the lighting is at any amount of angle.  For these reasons I would not recommend it.

 

I am now looking for an aftermarket.  (I found this while searching... and decided to help you out.)

I concur with what Grimoire said. I too purchased a Lenovo screen protector. There is no glare reduction at all, and I also have to make extra swipes at times. I always have to clean the screen, even when using a stylus. I purchased it because I haven't seen any replacement protectors.

Thank you for providing your info! I'm waiting for my Yoga 13 with the screen protector to ship and its unfortunate to hear that the screen protector seems to be of inferior quality.

 

Can one of you kindly provide me the dimensions of the screen? I'm thinking of getting a custom cut antiglare screen protecotr from Clarivue. I've been using their antiglare protectors on my phones and nexus 7 and they work well.

 

Thanks

Screen itself 291mm wide, 165mm height Add the bezel, so you can see you spare space. 330mm wide, 200mm high including bezel. the corners are curved though so you won;t want to go the whole way there is also of course the camera and "light' to not want to cover.

I got the following ViewGuard antiglare screen and it works great - fits perfectly, touch is uneffected, and much less glare.

What do you expect for $9.99?  It is a piece of silicon intended to cover the glass. It is easy to place and to remove. It seems to have no negative effect on touch and responsiveness. If you want more you all on the right track to find an aftermarket product that has anti-glare and such.

Actualy, $9.99 only if you buy it in the Lenovo store. Best Buy is gouging a whopping $39.99 for it.

I bought Yoga 13 last week, now I need a screen protector. Can you suggest the best screen protector ? Is it worth to buy the original Lenovo with $ 9,9 ?
