This is an excellent case; the fit is perfect and it provides excellent protection. After trying several other rubber type slip on cases I can say this is the best I’ve see so far, I purchased on for both my son and myself.

Does this attract a lot of lint and dust like the iskin?

Is this compatible with the Sik Ram Din?

Hi, everyone. Is the round version just as good as the square one?

My daughter wants the round, but I'm not sure how it would review, and Jeremy hasn't yet gotten around to reviewing the run of the mill rounded silicon jacket.

I posted at the iPod mini site of iPod Lounge, but have had no responses.

Perhaps it's a question that no one knows the answer to.

I found my answer. The round type jacket is basically reviewed, though not in the review ratings but as a sort of subheading under Power Support's Swivel Fix Stand.

Here it is:

"Round Type Silicone Jacket Mini
While we love the Square Type Silicone Jacket, there’s less to be said for Power Support’s Round Type case for the iPod mini. It’s a very simple product - a silicone rubber sheathe with five holes, four of which are obvious: one at the top for iPod insertion, one each for screen and Click Wheel, and one for the Dock Connector port. The Dock Connector hole is on the too-small side; it works fine with Apple and Belkin peripherals, but not ones with larger Dock Connector plugs.
And unusually, the top hole is on the too-large side: it’s entirely open with an odd design that includes a precision-molded lip to hold the iPod mini in place, and a back flap of rubber that stands taller than the front and sides off the top of the Silicone Jacket. The flap is unlike the company’s more protective slit-like opening on the 3G iPod Silicone Jacket, and given the case’s small fifth hole located dead in the center of the rubber, it’s probably designed to work with a lanyard necklace, though none is included.
The best thing we can say about the Round Type is that it’s reasonably protective. Power Support wisely decided to pack-in screen protection in the form of scratch-resistant Crystal Film and Click Wheel protection with transparent Wheel Film. Together with the case, these two Films protect all of the iPod save its top, Dock Connector port, and Action button, making the case offering above average in overall protectivity.

That said, unlike Power Support’s Square Type case, the Round Type case offers little that we haven’t seen before. It’s a fair overall compromise for those who want a little more thickness and a different sort of Click Wheel protection than what’s offered by Lajo’s exo3 series cases. Generally speaking, if you don’t have another rubber case already, it’s a fine pack-in for the Swivel Fix mount, but it’s not super-stylish and wouldn’t independently be our first choice in this case category."

I wonder why they buried this important review here, rather than with the square type review. From the review of the square type, readers are left assuming that there is not a great difference between the two.

This oversight needs to be corrected. Glad I stumbled upon it before purchasing the round type.
