Hello lads, Today I took the oppurtinity to really test the shield if it can scratch because I got a new from from Zagg because the old one had a few creases in it. I got it of my iPod and applied it to an old TV. I used a fingernail scissor to scratch it with the sharp ends. And yes, it is definatly scratchable, you can definatly see where the scissor hit it but the device underneath it has no damage AT ALL. That's where it does a good job. Advice: Don't think you can do everything to the shield, still be carefull with you iPod so it will stay beautifull!!!! Pics will follow later.
