    Hello,

    The device is really amazing.. so i am starting to wonder if its a necessity to use a screen protector ? Do you guys installed any ? or just the cover do the job.

    Thanks!

    I think the screen protector on a Surface Pro will affect the pen input. I have a screen protector on my RT and my Wacom capacitive pen became useless. Also depends on the type of screen protector used.

    I've never used a screen protector on anything. The Surface glass is very strong and scratch resistant. I agree with Arnold, it may affect pen input.

    Yeah I don't experience any scratches on my devices. Just don't be careless and you should be fine. I personally don't like screen protectors b/c they are a hassle to put on and they take away from the natural clarity of the glass

    I use a screen protector and my pen works perfect. Gorilla glass can scratch. I'm currently using one similar to zagg and its ugly but I am going to try a thinner dry application film
