Do you really think you need a screen protector? I never had one for any of my clies or this.....unless you have a hand like an elephant


When replacing a scratch screen cost about $400 USD (as much as some high end PDAs), shure you need a screen protector.

Better yet, why not? A good screen protector (the boxwave ones are great) doesn't impede the readability of the screen, and protects your more expensive screen in case anything bad happens. Perhaps you accidentally tap your screen with your pen. Or you take out the stylus and a piece of pocket lint or grit is on the tip. Put the tip to the screen, and you'll hear the most horrenous screech, and have a bump.

Given murphy's law, your scratch will be right in the middle, and you'll see it. I'd rather replace a $13 piece of plastic than a $400 screen. Or take my chances with a refurbished screen if you send it in for warranty (which may have scratches, rough spots, dead pixels, imperfections, etc).

Someone has listed a site that had instuctions on how to optimize your 280 (battery and such) I remember it said you needed to upgrade to .NET something. Anyone have those links? For the life of me I cannot find them.

Here i share best info about Links For the UX-SERIES. It would be best if you would put links to your more specific reviews on your general review. This way we don't have a giant review section, and a section that lists specifically which aspect of the UX that is being reviewed.

I found Sony service manuals for most models of UX. They contain exploded diagrams & Sony part numbers. Also included is the UX disassembly guide. Here are links at Google Docs:

Great stuff ceehoppy1st, these manuals are extremely useful since most of these parts are actually still available from Sony, so we actually order new parts as our amazing UX requires it.
