It fits very well.

My biggest need is a well fitting case that I can easily and repeatedly remove the iPod to place in my dock - and not scratch the iPod with stitches, sharp edges, etc.

Previously I had a 3G iPod and was using the iSkin case for it.

I'm very satisfied with this case. But first the bad: 1) It scratches easily. I handle my incased ipod with kid gloves and it still shows minor scratches on the surface. But anybody who has the 5G ipods knows that the ipod itself, especially the black one shows a lot of scratches compared to prior ipods. I think most people would prefer the scraches be on your $25 case vs your ipod so I can't complain too much. 2) The belt clip is a bit difficult to use. It comes off the case very easily. But when you do use it, it can be difficult to remove it from your belt. That's not to say it can't be done & it's not an issue that should keep you from this fine product. It's a task that will probably require both hands though. 3) The opening for the connection on the bottom of the ipod might be too large for some. For those of you who like the most possible coverage on your ipod might be a little disappointed with the case, but for those who prefer a bigger opening so that you can easily attach to accessories, this will be a plus.

Now for the good (and in my mind, there is a lot more good vs. bad): The thing that made me purchase this one is the looks. The only other case I've used is the evo from iskin, which is a rubbery type of substance that seems to act as a magnet for all sorts of dirt. I prefer the Showcase b/c the clear face allows you to show off the ipod itself. Personally, I really don't like the cases that hide the ipod under flaps of leather or with mounds of rubber. The ipod is a beautiful piece of machinery & should be treated as such. The hard surface does not have the dirt problem I had with the rubbery case. There is rubber that goes around the edge to add protection from drops, but the rest of it is clear.

Definitely much better than other cases I've tired for my iPod, but it's a bit flimsier than it looks in the picture (this is NOT something akin to a Sports Walkman).

In particular, the belt clip is very annoying in that it has a hook shape at the bottom where it slides into your belt. If you wear it on your gym pants, for example, the hook will snag onto your drawstring when you try to slip the iPod off, and the belt clip will come off of the case. You'll have to put the iPod down somewhere and use two hands to pry the belt clip off of your pants and to snap it back onto the case.

But overall, it's a nice case with an excellent latch mechanism. I haven't found anything better out there, despite several tries.

**ADDENDUM** After less than two years of light use, the latch no longer stays shut and my iPod keeps falling out of the Showcase. I asked Contour to replace it, but they said the warranty had expired. Today my iPod fell out of the case on the treadmill and got smashed. When I replace my iPod, I will NOT be buying a new Showcase -- or anything else from Contour Design.

I wish to downgrade my rating of this case to 1 star. If it doesn't hold the iPod, it's of no use.

AVOID THIS PRODUCT.

The Showcase is a terrific case for everyone who ones an iPod. Since the iPod places protection at such a premium (scratches and scuffs are more than just a cosmetic insult; it can also threaten your AppleCare warranty), you need a case that can adequately protect your $400 iPod.

And it does so with flair - everything is molded so that nothing is exposed when it shouldn't be, and the edges are coated with shock-absorbing rubber. There's also a snap-lock thing on the side that makes opening/closing it a simple task. It does its job simply, efficiently, and the matte-black rubber motif works well with my black iPod.

I only have two real complaints: 1) the plastic will probably get dirty/scratched over time, rendering the video difficult to see on your iPod; 2) the bottome opening for the USB cable is a bit bigger than it has to be. But overall, these are non-troublesome issues that won't take away the enjoyment of your iPod.

I've worked my way through many iPod cases (And you really should get one. They work.) Simply put, this is one of the best. First, it is a hardcover, which I have always found to be superior. Second, it opens like a book. Beware iPod cases that slide in from the top or side. They will scratch your screen. Finally, the front is entirely clear. It's nice to use a case that puts the iPod on display. I recommend it.

First, this case is beautiful (to me anyway). I've looked at sleeves, silicon slip cases, clear acrylic cases, flip cases, etc. And none was exactly right. This one is.

The looks of this case are excellent, and the black case would look equally elegant on a white iPod as on the black iPod.

My biggest need is a well fitting case that I can easily and repeatedly remove the iPod to place in my dock - and not scratch the iPod with stitches, sharp edges, etc. And, I don't want the iPod to be loose in the case (my biggest complaint with many of the acrylic cases).

This case feels great, fits great and looks great. Yes, the openings are large, but I didn't get this expecting no dirt would ever get anywhere.

My only complaint: the case I received has a small imperfection on the front below the click wheel that looks like a vertical scratch (but is actually inside the acrylic). Not worth returning it over that though - I'm sure the case itself will get scratched as I use it.
