Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Tablet - Photodon Screen Protective Film (HD Anti Glare screen protector)
Gear: Photodon Screen Protector, X230T Accessories.
I highly recommend getting some kind of screen protection for the X230T. I have only owned the system for about two weeks and I did manage to get a few scratches in. The scratches may be caused by the digitizer tip or eraser.
The protective film that I got is the Photodon HD Anti Glare Film that was made for the X220T, but it also works with the X230T.
The contents of the package have everything that you need to clean, test, and place your new screen protector. The package does have clear installation instructions.
The most important thing about the installation process is to keep a clean environment, any dust or lint will show.
It is also a good idea to get rid of those air bubbles when you place the film on the screen. It will be harder to remove these bubbles if you do it later.
Width and height
The height of the screen film is spot on. The width of the film covers the entire usable screen, but it does not go all the way to the end of each flushed bezels. If you want the film center you need to leave a few millimeters off on each side.
Effects of the screen protector
The screen will gain some glossiness/glare that was previously not seen. This will be more noticeable when you have the X230T outdoors. You can still read text outdoors.
The accuracy of the digitizer and finger touch input does not seem to be affected.
Photodon decided to include a label that reads "photodon.com", which is an annoying and unnecessary branding move. Because the X230T converts the label will be seen upside down at one time or another. So a great product now has turned into a good product.
This film will protect your screen from your digitizer. In my opinion it is better to eventually have to replace a screen film than the entire touch panel (which could be very expensive and a hassle). If Photodon had not included their stupid label then I would be even happier.
