What I required was a silicone skin case for my trusty iPod Classic, which I had so long that the previous case (not similar) had worn out. What I got what was exactly what I wanted. The case isn't substantial, but it offers good protection and, most importantly, a loop for a lanyard (I am still waiting for the lanyard). If you are looking for a silicone case for an iPod Classic, and you want something that does the job, you should consider this one. For the money, I don't think you would do much better. My only reservation is the need for the slits in the back, which might over time let dust and such in, which is all that stops me giving the fifth star to the review.
