    I'm really confused about the Martin Fields iPod Screen Protector. On their website they say it's just a screen protector, but everyone else says it covers the entire iPod. Is it a screen protector or is it like the InvisibleShield?

    It's much stiffer than the IS and comes in 3 pieces for the front only, one for the face of the iPod, one for the outer ring of the clickwheel and one for the middle of the clickwheel.

    The "deluxe" versions also include a piece that covers the flat portion of the back, but do not wrap around the sides like the IS.

    I can post a picture of the kit tonight if it's useful.

    Note: I only applied the main piece that covers the screen and body of the 'Pod. I like a little friction on the clickwheel and the MF overlay is super glossy. I also don't worry about scratches on the metal back.

    Then why do they call it a screen protector?

    'Cause it protects the screen? :rolleyes:

    1) Most of their other products are screen protectors.
    2) They're from Japan, does the english have to make sense?

    Hmm is this for the Nano or the 5th gen iPod? I got the MF protector and I didn't get a center button protector (and surprise surprise, it's the only place that has scratches on it :rolleyes: ).

    Maybe I should phone in... :confused:

    I just put one on my 5g. I really like it. Im glad I didn't have to wait 24 hours to dry, but the IS does have side protection. If the extra money is worth protecting the sides for you, go for the IS. If not, save the cash and get the marin fields.

    Here's the pic of the MFscreen protector I promised.

    You can see the cover for the front including a donut for the clickwheel and circle for the selection button and the narrower piece for the back.

    Where can you buy this again?

    Do you find it distorts the screen badly? Thanks.

    Not at all, it's crystal clear. Here's a shot viewing the excellent demo movie from the Fifth Element. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=156367 You can see a piece of lint under the protector which I will remove someday, and a little bit of dust on the surface.
