    A must for the dropsy's...

    I bought our first one for my wife, as she's not handheld electronic friendly (drops everything, companies should hire her to test stuff). This thing is TOUGH. Not only does it protect the outer casing of the iPod, but it absorbs the force really well, distributing the impact, which protects the most important part, the guts. When we first bought hers, they only had black, which she isn't a fan of. But now they have other colors like pink and blue. Anyway, hers was so sturdy and passed her tests, I bought one for my new Touch. Only 'bad' thing I can tell you is what others have said. Doesn't work well with docks. But I'm active and use it primarily for running and cycling, so its perfect for someone active. I've read others had the tabs tear off. So far we haven't run into that, and my wifes has gotten a lot of use. I gave the Ease of Use category a '4' star as it takes a minute to get apart if you are going to dock the iPod. Hope this helps!

    Griffin Technology Survivor Case For IPod Touch

    The case itself is very durable; although its tedious to assemble. I've dropped my iPod quite a few times, and the case does hold up quite nicely. The screen protector that comes with is nice and smooth, and overall the case is very durable. While the case does do it's job to protect the iPod, I found some downsides. The case itself is extremely big and bulky - which can complicate things, especially if you keep it in your pocket. The screen protector on the front of the case also marks and discolors very easily. The outside case also collects lint quickly, so it looks dirty most of the time - again, a minor problem but when you buy something as sleek as the iPod, you would expect it to at least showcase some of that. Some flaps are built in for you to access the headphone jack, as well as the charging port, and the camera but they are cumbersome to use.

    Great case with one big problem

    I would give this case 5 stars if my kid's headphones could plug into it. I bought two of these cases for my twin 5 year olds for their new iPod Touch's. The case is very durable, protects the iTouch well, has a nice feel, and looks nice. I love the front screen protector. They have figured out how to open the different coverings to use the camera, for example, so that has not been a problem. Unfortunately they both have headphones (not earbuds) that have wide bases on the part that plugs in. The opening for the headphone on the case is not large enough and the headphones will not plug in at all. The opening is surrounded by a hard plastic piece so there is no way to make it work. Now we have to find some kind of adapter (hard to find), buy new headphones (expensive), or buy different cases (also expensive). It does accommodate my husband's Bose headphones. Very disappointed that they couldn't just make the headphone opening large enough to accommodate other headphones.

    Protects

    This case protects, and protects and protects. The belt clip is very cheap feeling. I havn't broke it yet, but I try and not use it that often. The clip works upside down and protects the screen if you put it on backwards. Got to be careful when you put it on that way. If you push up against it, it wants to activate the voice command. Docking stations will not work with it, but you can just take it off. It takes some doing to get it off, though. Also, audio jack connection has limited space (part of the protection), so some plugs will not fit. Over all, great purchase to protect my touch. I will look into buying one for my next smart phone.

    Great case for protecting you Ipod

    I originally purchased this model case for my Ipod touch to protect it when I am listening to my music. For the record I am a very rough on my electronics as I like to listen to my music a lot, and my various mp3 players have been subjected to heavy abuse, falls, scratches, bumping into things when wearing to just name a few. This case is basically armor for your Ipod and it is great protection for the price. It is not too bulky for the amount of protection it provides. The belt clip is solid and tough as well. Overall a wonderful product!

    some minor issues, but is great protector

    We purchased these cases for our sons' (ages 9 and 7) Ipod Touches. The flap that covers the charging plug broke off one case right away, but it is not really needed. It is also a bit difficult for the 7-year-old to hold back the flap covering the camera lens, but I may just take it off anyway, as the overall casing is great protection. No drops yet, but I feel comfortable putting the Ipod in any sort of location (bag, purse, coat pocket), as the screen protector is great. The boys can turn the Ipods on and off by themselves. Being able to buy two different colors was a bonus.

    This product works as advertised. It offers great protection, in my opinion, better than the competition which is also priced higher. On occasion, you will need to take the product off the iPod to clean out dust, but maybe only once or twice a year depending on your use. This product saved us from replacing my daughter's iPod, which has a cracked screen. The entire iPod is enclosed, preventing any loose debris from escaping or from slicing into tiny fingers. It does require an adult to "fit" the iPod into the case, at least for the first fitting. My 8 year old had a hard time figuring it out., so I helped her. She can now do it on her own. Highly recommended.

    This is for a my two sons' iPods. They are 5 and 4. While it is very secure and protects the iPod very well, the openings are hard to open for my 5 and 4 year old and are difficult for me as well. The camera lens has a plug over it so to use the camera, you have to open it every time and keep it from falling over the lens. This is not easy to open or to keep open. It is very awkward to use the camera with this case on. The charger port has a plug as well and it is equally difficult to open. While it is secure, it is difficult to open the various ports you need to access. Get an Otterbox for the 4th Generation iPod...........it is much more functional, for kids and adults, to use.

    I bought this case for my sister for Christmas. She got a new ipod touch and needed a case. She tends to drop it all the time and is prone to breaking electronics. The case is bulky but well protected. The case does not work well if you have an ihome or something similar to plug it into as the bulk of the case gets in the way. My sister tends to remove the case to charge. Works really well with the cable to the computer. Great case if you carry it in a bag or coat pocket, terrible if you want to slide it in your back pocket.

    Good Protection, but...

    Bought this for my daughter's iPod touch and it does offer great protection and great colors for kids but because it covers up all the openings, it makes if difficult to use. Such as the camera and my biggest issue is with covering the speaker at the bottom. My daughter uses her iPod to skype with her friends and now the speaker is covered and even with opening up the cover at the bottom, I can barely hear her. I would probably have purchased something else because of this.

    My Son broke the screen on his iPod Touch. The $90 to have it fixed was a tough pill to shallow. Got this case for him and my daughter. Easy to get on. Looks pretty cool and has some pretty nice features like a detachable belt clip and stand. Haven't had any issues and kid's Ipods are protected. With any case of this sort it does make the nice sleek devices a little bulky, but anything less is just bling and doesn't really protect the device. It comes in several different colors.

    I really like this case. I got two of them on sale, for myself and my niece, and now buying a third for my nephew. I like that it covers the ports. However, the headphone port cover was pulled off when the headphones where in the jack, the cover over the camera is kind of hard to keep out of the way when in use. and the data port cover is hard to open. The screen protector work great. No glare, easy touch, and clear.

    Great protection for your ipod!

    This case is great! My son got an ipod for his 6th birthday and we wanted a case that would protect it from all the drops, etc. It is fantastic. When it drops, it just bounces and the case shows no signs of wear! The only complain I have is the camera has "plug" that you have to take out each time you take a photo. For me, it's fine, but my son has a hard time getting it out. Overall I think this is a great product and well worth the money!

    I got this case for my nine year old son when I got him an iPod touch for his birthday. When I got the iPod at the Apple store, they offered me a 1-year warranty on the software only!!! So I decided to save that money and put it into a really sturdy case. So far, this thing has been dropped multiple times and covered in flour, but it always cleans up well, protects the iPod, and is very lightweight. I'd recommend it to anyone subjecting an iPod to similarly stressful circumstances.

    this is her second ipod touch, i had to have the other one replaced for a shattered screen. this case is made of the same material my 7 year olds tough camera is made of and its wonderful. the screen is protected and cant detect lite but you can adjust your the contrast and brightness of your screen to remedy that. it still has great touch capability even with the screen protector. and i bought her in pink so its very cute.. love it and she does too,

    This is perfect for the young and old, who have a tentancey to drop their gadgets. I bought this for my grandaughter so she would not ruin her new IPOD touch. My niece is on her second IPOD touch, she broke the screen on her first after only having it 1 week. After seeing my grandaughter's case my sister went to purchase the same one. The only problem, you need to take it apart to charge the IPOD.

    The last two Ipods I owned I did not buy a case for them. After dropping one and stepping on another, and the casing and/or fascia breaking I figured I need something industrial for my clumsy butt. So, after comparison shopping and suggestions from people I decided to buy this case. Lucky I did too! I dropped it outside on cement and at the beach in sand. No damage!! Well worth the money.

    I bought this case 2 days ago and I was really impressed with it. My iPod is cracked and I thought that I didn't want it to get any more cracked so I got this case. Also I am thinking about getting a new one and I need a good case for it. Before this case my iPod didn't quite sense right in the screen but after putting this case one it works great and I feel confident with it now.

    iPod Touch # 1 died a quick death after being in use for only one week. It was dropped off a table, fell on its edge and cracked the screen. iPod Touch # 2 was purchased with the Survivor case. It has survived unscathed - in spite of the many accidental attempts on its life! The Survivor case is now a favorite gift item - for any of our friend's with the iPod. Wish they made a case for my phone!
