Lens Filter Question

Im new here so,not sure where this should be posted. If it should be somewhere else, maybe the moderators can move it. My question is about using a UV filter on the lens to protect it. I know it saved my other camera (Kodak P&S) twice. But I found unless it is made of quality glass, it effected the sharpness of my photos. This time around, I bought Hoya filters in hopes the glass is better and wont effect the images.

Do you all use filters to protect your lenses? If you do, what quality are they? Do you still get sharp photos?

Thanks for the link. Good reading. As for the nick... Its a fairly long story and goes back to the old BBSs (before the internet). But some say it is well deserved.
