I had the bodymask for my 15gb ipod and I would NOT recommend this.  Like what they advertise they are realy “stickers”.  Very impossible to align the holes and get a clean application without having any bubbles.  Like stickers, it looses its adhesives on the sides and would flair out making it look cheap.  PowerDesign USA is really shipped from Japan so don’t be mislead by the name.  Not recommended!

does an iPod mini really *look* like your beater car’s bumper?

Actually, not that tough to align. The adhesive will peel if you pull/jam a side(easy to do). Seems to happen more with the “real” facemasks. Upside is that They’re the only “case” that works with the dock, without hampering button access. An easy way to lose the white of regular iPod. I’ve had good experiences with them, but YMMV

I still use PDA screen protectors for this purpose, and I must say that they work great, even though it looks like a mass no matter how carefully I cut it.

Perhaps this would look much better.

The design flaw is bigger than that it also is inherent in the regular iPod. It’s called not being powered internally by user-replaceable batteries like Double As.

What? That “string” of words makes absolutely no sense, and appears to have nothing to do with these stickers.

Err, which part of something in quotes is unclear to you? Go look in the gear section to see how this is filed, that is where the case reference comes from.
Yes, it’s cheap, as in not alot of money. Yes, it’s a sticker, they talk about adhesive at their site. Yes, it protects the screen/surface of the Pod from scratches, like a case would(not I did NOT say impact). As I said, it has worked fine for me, YMMV.

I bought the clear version of this and have to say I was extremely disappointed. I admit it’s very cheap, but a useless product is still a rip off all the same.

I tried to apply the stickers and found them to be totally not very tacky at all, extremely difficult to align, and basically turned my $250 machine into a piece of kack that looked like a dogs dinner.

Don’t waste your time with such a useless downgrade to your mini. Even if it did work it offers only the minimum of protection against moderate scratches…. and if my memory serves my right, Apple packaged my mini in loads of plastic that I should just have left on for the same effect, only better… at no cost.

This product is flawed massively and I would recommend all potential buyers avoid. Even at $5.50 it’s too much to waste on something that is useless.

Is this company better then Lajo?

Looks like a pretty cheap product to me.  One scratch, and you’re through the “protective” coating of the sticker anyways.  Still waiting for that one case…

I just had to peel my black BodyMask off to replace my battery and I’ll be ordering another. No scratches on my iPod. This is the lowest profile covering you can get. I’ve got a black scratch-proof iPod and I like it.
