I currently use a skin from bestskinsever.com on my Motorola Q. Not only has it protected my Q against the worst my pocket has to offer - it also took a couple hard drops without a scratch. Meanwhile, my iPod Photo has lived its entire life in a leather case and managed to get significantly scratched. Now I am thinking of replacing it with either a refurb 60GB video iPod or a new 80GB model, and I am definitely going to get a skin from Best Skins Ever to protect it. I like the look of the black iPod, but I was thinking it would show the presence of the skin more so than the white. Anyone have experience with this or a similar product to know whether this is the case?
