    Hello All

    I recently ordered a New IPT (stupid fedex hasn't updated in days, who knows where it is) and had a question for you all (including 1g owners)

    Do you have any sort of protective film/screen protection on your ipod, I'm not talking about a case, but something that goes on your actual screen. For those of you who don't, are you fine with it? Does it clean easily?

    Reason being, I am VERY careful with my electronics etc. I never leave em lying around or rarely even take them in my pocket. I'd carry it in my old Ipod video sleeve and was wondering if i even need a protector if i am going to be extremely careful with it.

    Thanks all!

    The screen is strong, but it's not scratch-proof. Last winter I scratched mine by putting my titanium Oakleys in my jacket pocket with the iPod. Stupid, I know - but I had to take my sunglasses off rather quickly and I just threw them in my pocket. The next thing I knew, my one-year-old son was clamoring for me to hold him. Five minutes later I realized that my sunglasses were in the same pocket as my iPod, with my son smashed up against it - when I took the iPod out, the bezel was scratched, along with the screen. heh

    I took my iPod in to get it replaced the next week (it had a speck of dust under the screen) and the new has had a screen protector on since day ONE. ;)
