I have this case and love it. My only complaint would be that the screen protector (which is permenantly attached) was scuffed up when I got it. I can deal with it, but for the money I paid, I expected it to be spotless. I rarely use the second cover and opt for the classic cover. Marware suggests that you can carry the iPod headphones in the front pocket of the cover, but it's not the easiest thing to get them in and out of there. Also, I find that keeping the headphones in there may eventually cause you to rip or lose the foam covers for the ear buds. All-in-all, I would agree with iLounge's rating. It could be better, but it is nice.

I have an Inivisble Shield on my 60GB iPod Video and it still fits into this case albeit very snug.

Anyone have any hints on how to clean the vinyl screen protector without making it cloud up?

I have this case as well and really like it. I too, rarely use the second cover. I stick with the first cover mainly for the pocket to store my earphones in, so I can keep it all together nicely when I'm not listening to the iPod. (Hate having wires and stuff all over the place!) The Sony EX51 Earbuds fit in the pocket pretty well, and even better once the pocket stretches out a bit. I think the standard iPod earbuds would be tough to fit in there though. I agree with iLounge; the first 'problem' I saw was how the click wheel wasn't aligned very well. What I've noticed however, is that it works out pretty good since there's more room for me to push the play/pause button at the bottom. Overall, I'm very pleased with the case and would recommend it to my friends.

As for cleaning the screen protector; the only thing I've noticed with mine is it gets some 'fuzz/lint' between the screen and the protector from my shirt/jacket pocket. Guess you could blow that out with a can of compressed air or something... I don't watch much video on it, so it hasn't really been an issue for me.

Love the case !

I Love this case too! I agree, I only use the full lid, but it protects really well. I use teh pocket for my Apple In-Ears, and the cord fits well, and the earbuds hang out. It is really luxurious and everyone comments on how expensive it looks. The Multidapt system is really a nice idea.
As for teh screen protector, from head on, it looks perfect, I can't even tell it is there. From an angle, there is a glare, but still not worth not buying the case for. It is really soft and keeps my iPod beautiful.
Overall, I reccomend this case, becasue the click wheel cover lid is kind of a joke, and I don't even use it, so I don't really care.

This is a WONDERFUL case and in my opinion, the best out there for protection AND usefullness for the 5G. The iPod fits VERY securely and snugly in the base case - no need to fear it slipping out accidentally. I have actually found both of the provided case covers to be quite useful - I use the click wheel/video view cover during the day when I wear it at the office clipped on my hip and I use the full cover carrying it around with me during the evening or on weekends when I mainly just plug it into my car and hit shuffle. I also use the pocket on the full cover to carry my id and a couple of credit cards instead of a wallet. Very soft, nice quality leather. I don't see the "off center" thing on my case so no problem there. And the multidapt clip system is the best - various adapter clips and attachments are available all over eBay and at the Marware site. I can highly recommend this as a great "covers all the bases" 5G case.
