A little disappointed but does the job
on 20 July 2011
Having purchased a new Apple iPod touch and keen to protect it as much as I can (for the price I should be doing so!) I came to Amazon and began a search.
I found another product but it wouldn't ship to the Republic of Ireland, which is ridiculous in itself. So I went with this product, and happy enough to have done so.
Positives are varied. It's easy to apply the silicone skin. When it's on it's relatively snug and is well shaped on the device. There are relevant holes for the camera, charger/USB connection/headset and they're well placed. When it falls, I feel the silicone acts as a good shock "absorber". Also, I'm not a fan of the feel of the back of the iPod so this presents a nice grip. A fundamental positive is that it's cheap.
The negatives are a little more detailed. With the case, it's a little too easy for it to slip out and at a slight pull it can come off. The thin area between the "home" button and the space for the USB connection is flimsy and seems to be in danger of snapping at times. Next, the screen protector. I ordered two, my brother tried the protector and chaos ensued. The instructions weren't helpful and the protector got dirty before it even connected with the device. It was a fruitless effort. I may try again with the leftover one but it seems difficult.
In conclusion, it's a worthy purchase, it's cheap, does the job (depending on how you use it) and helps the iPod. It could be a little tighter and the screen protector could work easier. In terms of delivery, it was quick and effective. Recommended.
