Cracked within 3 weeks of very light use :( Posted by: from: on Before purchasing this case, I saw the other reviews about the case cracking. Of course I disregarded them, because it looked like a nice case and I wasn't expecting the case I picked to be majorly durable. After all, I only use my iPod at home (i.e., have not taken it to the gym, work, or even into my car). Still, I like to take care of my things so I wanted a case to protect the outside from any light scratches that are inevitable with any kind of use. Would you believe the case has already cracked? How? I cannot answer that question, as I have never dropped it. I noticed the cracking after I added an Invisible Shield onto my iPod. I've provided pictures. The cracking is in the upper right corner, which from its design is an obvious weak point. Was not expecting this though.... The corner of the case is close to breaking off. My case is already broken after minor use within 3 weeks of using it. I tried to go on the Belkin website for customer support in hopes of getting a new one since it's been less than a month.... This case/model isn't even listed on their product list on the Customer Support site. So disappointing. :(

Eh Posted by: from: on Here's the thing: If you're interested in the protective function of a case, this one is good for a little while. If you're interested in the protective and aesthetic functions of a case, this one is good for about two days, then it starts to disintegrate fast -- literally. I assumed when I read everyone else's reviews that their experiences were based on ordinary, average use of an iPod Touch, one that involved putting the device in a pocket or bumping it around in a bag or dropping it on occasion. Mine, however, sits on my desk (believe it or not, I use it for work) and it rarely leaves my desk at all. Yet I'm plagued with the cracking and chipping problems that everyone else seems to have. I'm not really sure what's causing this — it could be that Belkin focused more on the aesthetics than they did the function, and that led them to choose cheap plastic. Or perhaps it's just too tight a fit. Or perhaps it can't handle the temperature that iPod Touches can sometimes reach when used for prolonged periods of time. That said, my device is fine. For now. There's a lot of places where the case has broken off, leaving parts of the aluminum exposed. I guess I'll eventually have to buy another case, and when that time comes, I'll probably have to look beyond Belkin.

I didn't know I purchasing a used case! Posted by: from: New Durham, NH on When I ordered this case, I was sure to check all the reviews and even do some additional research online regarding this case. When I received it in the mail, it became very obvious that this was a returned item. The packaging that the case came in was very beat up and the clear case itself had scratches on it! I'll be returning this case this weekend. Also, it didn't fit my new iPod touch very well as it wasn't level in the case and didn't securely snap into place. As the case is clear (if that's what you call it with the minor yellowing of the case), I am unable to get a good photo showing the scratches.

Not compatible with Lightning to 30 pin adapter Posted by: from: on I still like this case overall. It showcases the iPod nicely, although it does add some bulk to it (not a major issue). The only major issue I have with it is that I have to remove it if I want to use the adapter. Major deal breaker for me.

could be more sturdy Posted by: from: indiana on This is a really nice case, to see the colored ipod through. It was broken on a corner the first day. Two corners and some scratches within the first week. Was looking for another case by the second week. Not very durable.

Sleek case Posted by: from: on This case adds protection without bulk and the transparency makes it more or less intriguing and simple in appearance. No screen protector is included but still a great overall value.

Ok Case Posted by: from: Santa Barbara, CA on My granddaughter wanted this cover to put her own pictures in it. She no longer uses it. She got a cover that better protects her iPod.
