    hi, i have a 4g iPod and was wondering if The Invisible Shield is worth getting. Does it protect the iPod well. Also i live in the UK so if i bought one off how long would it take to deliver?

    sorry if this has been asked before

    from what I hear, it is a good shield. i plan to go in with a friend and start making some of our own. Their shipping is slow, I ordered mine yesterday (7th) and ETA is the 14th. WAY Slow. If everything works out with me and my friend we will start selling them. We will ship MUCH faster then them as well. My email is you can contact me and keep in touch with me incase we do start selling these. But nothing official yet.

    yes it is definetly worth purchasing, but you have to have lots of patients to apply it... it took me about 1 and half hrs per side...

    Their ETA was not very accurate for me, I got mine in 3 days flat. It was sent out via regular usps so if it's slow, their either backed up and can't meet demands or usps is taking their sweet time.

    Anyways, I am very happy with the shield. Now if they could only make an
    anti finger prints for it too, I would be even more happy. The lifetime guarantee can't be beat, its a good investment.

    It is a superb product, and it seems to be resistant to anything I throw at it. It has protected my iPod sitting in my pocket for a whole day!

    Just make sure you take some time applying it, and make sure you have a PERFECT application before letting it dry.

    I finally caved and bought it. I returned my first iPod (5G) because of the battery life not really being what it should have and got a new unit and haven't taken it out of the box yet until this comes in. Has anyone from Canada ordered one? What was the turn-around like as far it being shipped? I can't wait!!

    I wrapped my 1gb Shuffle in an Invisible Shield. it's much better protected now. I feel much better carrying it in my pocket and not having to worry about coing brushing up against it.

    Their demo video actually looks pretty impressive, but I'm not sure I could get a hold of one in Shanghai... and I'd need a case if I get my nano...

    I have a 5G white 60 gig iPod.

    Putting an invisibleshield on it was the best decision I've ever made. If I ever order another iPod, I'm not taking it out of the box untill my invisibleshield gets here.

    Julia (my Pod) had hairline scratches on the screen, but I decided to just live with them, and put the invisibleshield on over them. To my suprise, you can no longer see any of the scratches. I don't know if its because the adhesive fills them in or what, but I couldn't be happier.

    The only problem that I've noticed, its that its a lot harder to put it in and take it out of the supplied case. The invisibleshield is still glossy and nice looking, but its not a slick as the original finish, and I think taht might be the problem. But, since it's a 60 gig, it didn't fit in there too well to begin with, and no that its protected by the invisibleshield, I don't need the protection anyway.

    I'd highly recommend this product to anyone who cares about the condition of their electronics.
