    My wife has had a black 30GB iPod video since November and has been looking at cases since then. She has finally decided that she likes the Countour iSee case.
    Does anyone have this and have any opinions? Postive/Negative aspects of the case. Any help would be appreciated. She wants to order it tonight so I told her I'd try to find out from people here what they think about that case.

    Thanks!

    I have the Countour Showcase and love it. I am one of those really picky people who wanted a case that would completely surround and prtect, yet allow access to controls and allow the iPod to be seen and the Showcase does all that.

    I did consider the iSee as well, but I liked the rubberized ridge around the Showcase instead. It seems like it would protect it better if I - or more likely my wife - dropped it.

    They are both made of the same polycarbonate and it does scratch, but not horribly so. It does its job of keeping those scratches off of the iPod itself.

    I have the Contour iSee for my 60GB iPod Video, and I freakin' love it!! It's one of those cases that actually work, and don't take anything away from the iPod!! I totally recommend it!!

    Here is another vote for the Contour Showcase. I just received my today and I love it. It looks great with the black iPod. Here is a link to some pictures I found on iLounge - http://web.mac.com/jhofferth/iWeb/Showcase%20Photos/Photos.html

    Can't comment on the iSee - Sorry.

    Good choice! I had the Contour Showcase for my 30GB iPod Photo, and I must say that I think the iSee is sooooooooo much better! The 2 cases I couldn't decide between for my 60GB iPod Video (Black) were the Contour iSee and the Agent 18 Clickshield. The Clickshield is one kick a$$ case!!!The only reason I went with the iSee was because of the belt clip that's included!

    I finde all of the above information helpful. Thanks! However, what I'm looking for, is a see-through case like Agent18 or the Contour cases (which have a flip lid) with the possibility to attach a lanyard.

    At the prizes those cases cost (the Agent18 for example goes for 35 Euros + shipping in Germany from Apple) I would like to have that extra feature.

    Does anyone know about such a product?
