I love my iSee case. I also use a protector on my click wheel to keep away scratches. The case is cheap, not bulky, and perfect for those who like seeing the iPod rather than a case with iPod controls.

Now, iSees are shipped with a clear sleeve and a clear belt clip. If you want to protect the iPod from being scratched inside the case, then use the sleeve. It also protects the click wheel and doesn't detract from the wheel's sensitivity. I didn't get the sleeve bunched up because I just pushed my iPod into the case using the wheel hole.

would rubber cement work on this case. I want to glue stuff to it.

Anyone else have any input on whether the Agent 18 is better than this case?

I'm really leaning toward the agent right now.

Agent 18 has no belt clip as far as I can see.

This case seems good. Am a little concerned about the case being scratched itself, but otherwise it's an option.

I am happy with the looks and protection of this case, espically sence it came with a plastic sleve to cover the click wheel. But like mentioned above i have only had it for about 2 days and it already has alot of scratches making it look not so good. But at least my baby is not being scratched.

if you dont use the sleeve it comes with, is scratching a problem? also, is the sleeve obviously visible through the case?

did you use the sleeve it came with?

To all who report scratches on your ipod - just use the sleeve

what i do is i put the sleeve on my ipod and put in the case - then I carefully remove it because I think it is hard to use with the click wheel

then when I want to take ipod out i slide the sleeve back on and pull it out

This elimnates many of the possible scratches - For me at least!

ps. I accidentally cracked my agent 18 when taking my ipod out, so I ordered this case. I think it is alot better - especially noting the belt clip and great protection

for those of you who have this case for a while now, how scrach prone is the case itself(how easy to scrach is it)
I saw someone wrote he have it for 2 days and the case already scrached and is not looking so good, if so, I will go with the agent 18.

I assume pics of your ipod+isee would be too much to ask but if someone will post here a pic or so with his (not new) ipod+isee I'll very very appreciate it!!!!


Thanks.

I bought this case from the Apple store when I bought my 4g 40gb. I found it really hard to open the firewire cable hole. Maybe I need longer nails. Also you have to depress the releases with a key or pen to open it. I think that after enough use the release, which you have to push towards the iPod (hard), might start to scratch my precious iPod, so I am returning it for a more easy to use case.

Any exercisers out there have iSees? I am a runner--but not sure if I want to go all the way with the Marware coz I don't really like the look of it...

How does it hold up to jogging? (I probably wouldn't use the clip)

To be honest all that screen and clickwheel stuff is a RIP OFF!!! I use the screen protectors that you can buy a 12pk of for your PDA. I cut them out to fit my unit and it works great in my iSEE-20 case. Heck when u buy those 12pks they only cost about $17 or so and I have had one sheet of 12 on my 4G 20gb Ipod since it came out. So go that route and don't look back.

This is a good case for rugged traveling. Especially if the ipod is to be used in these conditions.

The case is heavy duty and the belt clip is well designed to release the ipod but not so easy that it would be accidently released.

I agree with the other poster that the door at the bottom is difficult to open. For that reason I would not use this as an everyday case.

You can buy the sleeves at coutour designs. I use the sleeve all the time holding it place with a piece of scotch magic tape on the back. It is almost invisable.

I use an i-station and a transpod - neither would work with this case but they work great with the sleeves and the ipod is always protected.

Even if you don't go with this case, consider the sleeves.
