Epson R-D1: LCD protection

The anti-reflection coating on the protective plastic screen over the LCD of the Epson R-D1 is fragile and easily scuffed. I have heard that this screen is replaceable.

It is thus a good idea to use a screen protector. I use one from ScreenPatronus: it is easy to put on, tough and does not affect the clarity of the LCD (those I tried before discovering ScreenPatronus were awkward to install and/or reduced the visibility of the LCD).

Most screen protectors, including that from ScreenPatronus, are very thin, so the LCD screen will fold in fully as usual.
