    Nice! The only problem I find with the Shuffle is that it scuffs easily. I have the black one from last update.

    I don't know if these will scuff because its high gloss. I am more afraid of scratches. Thats why I got the case. I am really excited :D

    Well, first of all, it's not high gloss, it's rather metallic shiny.
    Second of all, scuffs/scratches, I think you both meant the same.
    And third of all, I don't think the case is necessary, the scratches aren't that visible and it still looks better without a case. Otherwise it's indestructible so I wouldn't use a case at all... :)

    I have to admit -- my iPod got a few scratches around the corners, but over all it's the most rugged iPod of them all -- it's survived everything, all with out a case. I. Hope you enjoy it!

    High gloss metallic shiny same thing :)
    I mean it wont be like the back of older ipods but more like when a macbook scratches.
    I am a bit paranoid so I ended up getting 2 cases. Will post some pics

    Congratulations!

    My iPod Shuffle is in very bad shape after falling once while running.

    I have to nitpick :D

    iPhone glass/macbook displays are glossy, metals are matte and shiny apart from the iPhone aluminium mirror finish :)

    I think we all do sometimes :D
    The new iPod shuffles are the shiny stuff! (So descriptive!) polished aluminum?

    Let me know how you like that case thing. I've seen them before but thought it would just make it harder to use.

    Hope you enjoy it, I love mine!

    Although I definitely wouldn't bother with a case. Spoils the look and mine's survived falls out of a first story window (long story ;) ), being thrown across a room and being stamped on after it fell off during running.

    However, it still works perfectly, if a little chipped at the edges!

    I do like the Red one, however.

    Yeah, there's no way to destroy the Shuffle with regular usage...
