Yay or nay?: Incase slider for ipod touch 4th gen?

Thinking if getting the incase slider case for my ipod touch. Any bad points? Reviews? Im going to have a screen protector on the screen only. I dont tend to drop it too much but want a new case. No cheap quality stuff. Any other ideas? Thanks

Incase Sliders (IMO) are the best cases out there. I have been using them since I got my 3g. Had one on my 3GS, and have one on my 4.

In my experience, all 2-part cases leave scratches on the back.
The joint is a natural place for dirt to acccumulate and the dirt (not the case) ends up leaving scratches.

^Agreed.

I've never really like slider cases at all, but that's me.

I used to have one. Yay.

It's lightweight and doesn't make the iPod bulky. But it's true that it may scratch the back of your iPod.

I've been using an Incase Slider for over a year, and I'd say the "pros" definitely outweigh the "cons". The case is solidly built, and offers excellent protection and functionality. Some dust can get in through the gap, but as long as you clean the case once in a while, it is not a problem.
