Quality K-5 Screen Protector?

Wondering whether or not anyone has found a good quality LCD screen protector. Your input is greatly appreciated!

I have used the screens from ACMAXX on my K20D and K-5 with excellent results.

Thank you greatly! Are they available through Adorama or B/H?

The ACMAXX are great, you even get a protector for the top display.

Yes, forgot about that -- for K-5 and other models it also comes with top protector cut to fit. I've used them on my K-7, K-5, K-01, Q, and Canon S90. Saved my screen a few times at least -- it is the first thing to order with a new camera so you can put it on there on day one and not worry about it.

Thanks to all who have contributed! This is my first question post in this forum and I am extremely pleased with the amount if support! ACMAXX is looking like a pretty good choice, although I will strongly consider the CGS as well!

I am using a self portrait mirror for compact cameras... Mounted upside down, I can use it in liveview from below or from top.

I've found it for $20 (15€) on ebay : 3" VIEWPLAYER Self portrait LCD Mirror Angle Viewfinder

I've been using the GGS optical glass protectors on my last few cameras with great results.

I use the Delkin shade protector. It's a safety screen with a clip on pop up shade that makes it easier to see the LCD in bright light. Indoors, you can take it off easily. Less than $20.

I use a custom cut film from skinevo.com. it's impressive look at their demonstration video
, but I would never try that on my LCD. they used to have a custom cut order section which no where to be found right now!
