Many LCD devices use plastic screens, while e-ink devices use a hard mineral glass.

Plastic is much more easily scratched, but may be more impact resistant under some circumstances, but either glass or plastic can still be cracked if you work at it.

If you jam either your LCD or your e-ink reader into a gym bag with the screen up against your sneakers and then start jerking it around, don't be surprised if it cracks.

Cars have glass windshields and windows, but broken glass is fairly rare even under some pretty rough conditions, so with a little care, your e-ink readers screen should also be fine for many years of use.
