    I really like mine for my iPod nano. I got bestskinsever for mine. It's cheaper but doesn't have a lifetime replacement. It's the same material.

    oh wow, so it's the exact same thing - same pieces/same material.....just they wont replace it if you have to take it off?

    hmm - that's not a bad deal - espically if it's only $7 - you can remove it and rebuy it 3 times before it's reaches the cost of the $25 one....
    you say you haven't had any issues with it either?

    it's awesome. Doesn't look like there's anything on the ipod at all, but protects (from scratches at least) really really well. I don't even use another case at all anymore. :)

    InvisibleShield = Incredible product. After a full year on my iPod not a mark or scratch showing. Just bought another one for my mobile phone!

    So what did you end up doing? I'm getting a new 80gb ipod, and i want to get a case for it. I was looking at the case you mentioned, iSkin eVo3, and thought that would give the best protection. How well did the click pad work with the cover on it?

    my 60gb has the evo3 - the click wheel isn't really a problem...the rubber makes its slightly "sticky" but its nothing terrible (beat all 15 levels of tetris with it on haha)

    for my 80gb i think i'm going with http://www.bestskinsever.com/servlet/StoreFront
    since it's way cheaper than invisibleshield and it's the same thing

    No I haven't had any issues. It's a pain in the butt to install around the sides but it looks great now.

    I've always used iSkin, and the only other product I would ever even consider using is CoreCases.

    I just bought a MacAlly skin for my Nano. I didn't want to cover the whole thing, so I just put a screen cover on. I think these all work the same way. They basically adhere with a low field static charge. The only "trick" is keeping dust or fingerprints off the skin when you apply it because it will leave small bubbles under the skin.

    IMHO I only see reason to protect the screen because it is visually functional. I don't care too much about the body and I hate the extra bubbles and creases/edges that you can get from full body armor. Just my 2 cents...

    Sigh.... I wish bestskinever made one for my 30GB Photo that I just bought in the Marketplace. :( I just polished it up all nice with Brasso (BTW- - Works great if you need to remove scratches) and wan't to keep it nice without a bulky case. I guess I'll have to get an InvisableShield.

    Having seen pics of them on the net I hated the idea but after trying various other options I went with the Invisible Shield and would wholeheartedly recommend it.

    I just removed it from my 60GB to sell it and get the 80GB model and it came off pretty clean. Just left a few sticky bits that came off okay and the iPod looked almost like new underneath.

    Its great to be able to stick the ipod in a bag or pocket without adding extra bulk to it and no worry of scratches.

    Invisiblesheild is a great and I recommend it. Although the edge of one corner is starting to unstick a little after a few months but no big deal.
