    I was really paranoid about possible scratches on my 5G iPod, especially after all the nano scratch horror stories. Any way, I bought an Invisible Shield for my new video iPod and decided to do my own durability tests: key test and the ziploc bag test (with keys and coins).

    Well, although this will probably kill my bandwidth, I made a video of my invisible shield key test...

    Love the way you set that video up. Shield seems to work very well but you never tried the sledgehammer test. :eek:

    Wow that was an awsome video. It was great to see that I can withstand that and you did it in a cool style.

    Thanks for the video. I am sold, I just ordered one.

    Thing is, I don't have an iPod yet. Looks like I am shopping this weekend. ;)

    Nicely done on the presentation!
    Also, I wonder if I should get one of these for my PSP, (anybody have one?)
    I have a Hori, and it is perfect, but only covers the screen.

    That is a great video, I love Office Space.

    Oh and the one you made was good too. I was wondering what the ziploc test was going to be.

    I bought my video ipod last week and I sent it back for a battery test today. I hope they give me a new one, because I ordered my Invisibleshield on Monday after hearing all these good things about it. Does anyone know how long it takes to ship?

    Invisible Shield should pay you for making that video! You have more balls then I do, I would have never done a ziplock test!

    Great video! Best demo of the product I've seen. I've ordered the I.S. for the 60 GB but haven't ordered the iPod yet. One thing I'm wondering is if the bumpy surface is as noticeable on the white iPod vs. the black - anybody know?

    I love my invisibleshield. I just wish that I'd put it on my iPod right out of the box. I carry it in my pocket, in backpacks, no scratching problems at all. It's fantastic.
