I bought my 40 gb ipod on Wed., bought a neoprine case on Wed. eve., returned that one...bought a countour, returned that...and bought this speck case.

The neoprine one seemed too flim sy and the screen protector and button holes were a strugggle to allign.

The contour case was excellant, seemed to be durable, well made, and looked and felt like it wouild protect the ipod from not only the elements, but also form an unexpected fall. The problem with it was that in order to use my iTRIP (which i really like) I'd have to remove the ipod from the case and in the car I was also interested in having the protection. So back it went.

Now I have the Speck case/stand and although when I'm charging with the car adaptor the flip stand/scroll wheel cover can be a bit cumbersome to deal with I have really liked it...That was until I read the reviews here and checked my ipod for face scratchs. Sure enough theres three or four scratchs (one on the botom of the screen) caused by a cove that was supposed to protect it from such things.

Now I'm a bit bummed.

It does scratch you Ipod even if its the 30 or 40 gb models. It scratches the face twice more than the original carrying case so if you want to use this just leave it in and never ever take it out.

is there any way to buy the dock only?

If so, can you dock WITHOUT removing it from a different skin (iSkin evo or similar)
