    My silver back is scratched moderately, and I have only tiny scratch on my screen. Anyone have some real scratched up?

    The back is a little scratched up but, it's the part I don't care about. I have no scratches on my screen and I'm also using a protective layer on my screen.

    1 Day & the back is scratched already! I bought a leather hard case to protect it on the second day.

    The back gets *ugly* and can't be helped. I haven't had any problem with the front though, and I don't use any sort of protection. I don't think it scratches easily.

    Invisible Shield went on mine the second it left the box so no, no scratches at all on mine.

    Mine is Scratched

    The back of mine is scratched bad!

    The screen has a small (pencil eraser sized) grouping of scratches. I have NO CLUE how I got them.

    I am a US Postal Letter Carrier, and use my Touch for 8 or more hours per day, with it flopping around in my pocket. I really should get some sort of protection...

    Definitely a little too late to maintain a "like new" condition!

    Yep that's the best case, it protects and looks classy. Use a case from day 1.

    I have plans to get one of those iSkin cases for my iPod touch when I do get one. I currently have a 5g ipod Video and I got one of those cases right off the bat, and 2 years later-- still no scratches!

    Nothing on the screen, but a considerable amount of normal scratches that you would expect on the back.

    I just brushed it. No smudges, fingerprints, grease or scratches (well, technically it is just scratched to the extent that it doesn't show). Looks a lot better than that shiny style, too.

    I find brushing to be difficult to get right.

    I got it pretty good on my first try. No, it wasn't perfectly straight, but if you mess up all you have to do is brush some more.

    I have one tiny scratch on the glass front, and two dents in the back where I fell down and landed on the Touch in my pocket :).

    Tough little bugger - I fell so that the Touch was sandwiched between the earbuds and my leg when I hit the ground and it had no damage other than two little dents where the earbuds impressed into the metal.
