Just got this case to replace the Belkin Grip Graphix (a nice silicone case), which I liked but doesn't do much of anything for protection.

I loved the Otterbox I got for my wife's Blackberry, which would have been toast by now without its protection, so I decided to give this a try to protect my new iPod. Purchased directly from Otterbox (used 10% off coupon). Extremely fast delivery (2 days).

The Good:
- AWESOME protection. This thing is made to take a beating more than any other case I've seen
- Nice screen cover. Anti-glare, but doesn't have too much sparkling/diffraction effect. Also easy to wipe down. Can't comment on durability yet, but seems good so far. No problems at all using the interface through the screen.
- Buttons are still easy to use (volume requires some force to press, but nothing bad)
- Very good grip - much easier to hold than the plain iPod without a case (though the Belkin I had was also very good in this regard, as are most silicone cases)
- Looks nice, very clean appearance
- The silicone outside fits nice and tightly over the hard inner shell

The Bad:
- Pretty bulky - turns your nifty thin iPod touch into the size of an iPod classic. Still, not too bad for the level of protection it provides
- Raised edges around the screen make it harder to use the interface, especially for some games and trying to type when in vertical/portrait orientation. I even fail to unlock it with the slide gesture fairly often (but then again, I have large fingers)
- Some uncovered parts, including the Apple logo on the back.

I had a 2G/3G Defender case on my previous iPod Touch 3G, which is now my wife's since she got me the 4G for xmas. The new 4G case feels pleasantly thinner than the previous model (which felt a bit too chunky), but I hope it has the same level of protection. I've dropped my previous iPod accidentally from counter height onto tile floor and it's been fine in the 2G/3G Defender case, and the new thinness of this case makes me wonder if it would protect as well (not intending to try).

As others have mentioned, the sync port and headphone dock flaps on the bottom are more difficult to get to stay in, and flop out easier, which is frustrating enough to almost give this 4 stars instead of 5, but that would be unfair to other people looking to compare this great case to other lesser cases. The 2G/3G version of this case completely covered the iPod and stayed covered unless you deliberately opened the port flaps. This case has 4 unprotected holes: for both cameras (front and back), for light sensor, and for the speaker (next to the ports). Not sure how I feel about that. Will probably let more dust/dirt in, and the new hard plastic case is much harder to take off than the previous one for cleaning.

On the plus side, the new protective screen exhibits no oilslicking like the old one did (see talcum powder workarounds for that on the old one), but the new one has already picked up a few light fingernail marks from my relatives playing angry birds on it.

The pad for the power button does make it easier to press, but the volume pads require substantially more force.

I've had it now for a bit under a week, and it's still a wonderful case, like the previous gen version, with the above caveats. 4 stars comparatively, 5 stars compared to other cases.

All of the good things people have said about this case are true. It is simple to install and will protect your iPod Touch from just about anything that might happen during regular use. I, unfortunately, have returned mine because I cannot use the dock on my new TV Panasonic TC-L22X2 22-Inch 720p LCD HDTV with iPod Dock. At first I thought is was because of the floppy port covers (Yes, they don't stay in very well.) on the bottom, but I later noticed that the hard inner case adds about 1/4-1/2 inch on the bottom of the Touch so the dock cannot be fully inserted. It does work great with the dock that comes with the Touch (the one that attached to your computer via USB) but you might be disappointed if you expect to use a stand-up dock.

I had never used an Otterbox before, but they came highly recommended, so I ordered them sight unseen. I am pleased with my purchase.

For those of you who have never seen one, the case consists of two layers. The first is a two piece hard shell that snaps around the Ipod. Be sure to get it to snap down on all sides. The top has a built in screen protector, I was worried about how this would affect the feel of the Ipod but it does not seem to be an issue for my kids. It does have just a tiny bit more "drag" (the coefficient of sliding friction is a little higher for my fellow geeks) than the glass surface of the Ipod, but they quickly got used to that difference.

The second part is a silicone skin that fits around the hard shell. If the skin does not appear to be fitting correctly then you do not have the hard shell snapped down fully. The two flaps on the bottom fit into the jack and the charging slot, these are the weakest part of the design as far as I am concerned. It takes a little finesse to get them to stay correctly as the silicone "plug" part that fits in needs to be put in at sort of an angle.

The silicone skin actually makes operating the volume and on/off buttons easier, as they stick up more, although slightly more force is needed to operate them. The case defiantly adds a little bulk to the Ipod, but this is not a bad thing as it is much easier to hold. The extra width though, means that a lot of docking products will not work with the case on. You can, however, plug in the charging cable that comes with the Ipod without removing the case.

From a physics point of view the case design makes sense.
