    Default LCD screen question

    Can I put car wax on the LCD screen to protect it instead of a screen protector?
    Also is the screen made out of gorilla glass?
    Still waiting for mine (ordered July 3rd)

    ASUS calls it scratch resistant Corning Fit Glass.



    But I think that just means the glass is fitted to the application.

    OK you called my bluff... Don't put wax on your lcd screen. You can get cheap screen protectors 3 for a dollar that will do a much more to protect your screen.

    Come on - it's Gorilla Glass. It is scratch resistant.

    Even Gorilla Glass gets fine scratches after months of daily use.

    It's a legitimate. People have used car wax on their car windows for years to help keep bugs off and prevent scratching. It works to a certain extent. Those who wash and wax the glass don't get that strange pattern where the windsheild wiper is.

    However as was said above, it's not practical on the screen.

    Also realize that wax isn't really much protection at all. It's just with cars you have little choice. Wax in theory creates a one atom thick coating and possible thicker in the little microscopic grooves and craters. It helps but not much and doesn't really last very long either. On a touch screen it would come off immediately. That's not even getting into the different types of wax. An abrasive wax cleans but would also damage soft plastic. A non-abrasive polish probably just wouldn't stick.

    the best way to protect the screen is to keep it clean and use a rubber tipped stylus.
