I've just used this for the first time on a short-ish (5k) run, and it works fine. I had wondered before I used it how secure it would be and whether the buckle would come open (as the velcro doesn't seem to 'grip' on to itself quite as fiercely as I was expecting), but had no problems. I have an iphone 4 in a rigid case and it fits into the armband fine (you can peel the velcro opening all the way back so it is easy to get the phone in). I have fairly skinny arms and the sizing is fine (although I did wear it over a layer), but if you have super skinny arms, you might find it a bit loose and have to keep pushing it back up your arm as you run (which has been my experience with other armbands). It is more comfortable and better quality than the one I had before. I don't use my phone for music when I'm running so can't comment on whether you can use your controls, etc, while it's in the case. It is probably a little expensive for the quality, but overall a decent buy and I would recommend it.
