I've only had my iPod since Wednesday, and already on Friday the front had all these damn little scratches all over it! And the center select button had a scrape on it. :(

Meanwhile, the shiny metal back is flawless. What gives? My old 3G 15GB was the opposite; the back was scratched up badly long before the plastic front showed any wear and tear.

I'm starting to miss my mini now, at least the 'no scratches' aspect of it.

I've been able to keep my iPod fairly free from major scratches with just the Apple iPod case, but the back definitely has a few while the front has no immediately noticeable scratches.

I agree with the iSkin folks - mine is essentially scratch-free thanks to the iSkin and its great screen cover.
