After searching for hard-cases suitable for seventh-generation iPod Classics - which seem to be few and far between as the iPod Touch is more popular these days - I decided to order the Purple Apple iPod Classic Hard Case with Aluminum Plating 80gb 120gb 160gb from MIP Engraving Inc via Amazon.

For those still unsure of the case's design, I'll try to describe it: The case comes in two pieces - the back piece is clear plastic and the front piece is a textured aluminum with clear plastic edges. On the front half of the case, there is a clear plastic window to protect your iPod screen and a round opening for the click wheel. There are openings for the dock, headphone jack and hold button. These openings seem to be large enough to accommodate most headphone jacks and the dock. Also, access to the hold button is largely unimpeded - even with my chubby fingers. The textured aluminum has a nice feel and is a lovely purple color.

The downside to these openings is that dust and dirt will inevitable become trapped between the case and iPod. The upside is that the case appears to be durable and will protect the iPod from scratches and is quite lightweight and slim and doesn't add too much bulk to the iPod.

However, I am disappointed that my case arrived with a large scratch in the clear plastic that covers the iPod's screen and slight scuffs in the back clear portion of the case. Due to the low cost of the case, I will keep it. (If the case had not arrived with scratches, it would easily be a 4-star product.)

I agree with all of the reviews before mine - great case, really feels secure. Beautiful purple - I absolutely love the color! It does get some dirt stuck in it, but what case doesn't? Overall, I am very satisfied! Definitely recommended.

It fit perfectly and was a great buy. I would definitely buy another one in the future in case this one cracked or something.

I just got my iPod Classic for my birthday. And I was so worried about it not being in a hard shell case. I looked around on amazon to find one. And I was a little iffy about the price, but I figured I'd rather spend 15 dollars for a case and have it protected than spend less and keep having to replace it.

I've heard some cases aren't that good, especially ones that have plastic over the wheel, which makes the wheel less responsive. This case does not have plastic over the wheel, which I love. It feels very durable and the color is amazing. It was definitely worth the 15 bucks! I'll probably buy another one in the future just so I'm able to change out colors every now and then.

Some people have issues with the back case being clear. I actually like this. It gets to show off the pretty reflective mirror. It'll collect dirt though, I know it. All cases do, just the clear will show it better. Thats fine with me, because I'll just take it out of the case to clean it every now and then.

All in all, this was an amazing buy. I'd recommend this case to anyone that has an iPod Classic. Just pick your color, and go! =).

The Backstory: I had just purchased an Apple Ipod Classic (whatever the most current generation is.. 93294 or something like that?) to replace one I lost a year ago. I wanted a durable case that was:
1. Not incredibly bulky
2. Did not let crumbs, dust, etc, slip through.
3. Allowed easy access to ports and click wheel.
4. Was not ugly, yet not too flashy.
5. Under $20

The Search:
I only wanted to search Amazon. I knew that any physical store I visited would have higher prices, and no reviews. And I wanted to know what others thought. I searched for a plastic Belkin case I previously used and really liked, but it seemed to be out of stock and/or discontinued.
This Purple Hard Case was immediately a front runner. It had good reviews, and the negative ones seemed to be from people who didn't realize that -- unless you were spending almost as much as the ipod itself -- the case would not protect against every throw against the wall, every bread crumb that shouldn't have been left in your purse anyway, or every tsunami. Cuz, you know, they're common.

The Delivery:
Amazon Prime is the way to go. For serious. Boom.

The Usage:
Immediately used with the ipod. It comes in two pieces -- front and back. I snapped them on, and voila. I use it at work all the time, and it adds very little bulk. There are times I drop it onto the carpet, and the case does come apart. However, the initial impact is done while the case is connected, and lets face it -- Apple products are pretty durable. It does the job.

The Verdict:
Very pleased, though I do sort of miss my Belkin case. I feel that came apart a little less. So minus 1 star for that. However:
1. gives minimal protection, which is all I was looking for.

My main reason for purchasing this - it was the nicest looking purple case I could find, and I hated my current one. This one is a really pretty purple color, and snaps on very easily. It certainly has gotten scratched up over time, but I guess that is the point - all those scratches could be on my ipod instead! The clear back is not the best option, as it gets dirt stuck in between the case and ipod...and makes it look like I don't keep my purse clean. Which I do!

I would purchase again.
