As per my other thread I have just had my iPod replaced under warranty and want to protect it as the last one ended up with scratches on the screen and the back was almost unrecognisable. So fellow iPod Touch users what case/screen protector do you use and what are it's best features and what are its downfalls? Would you recommend it? Please feel free to backup other peoples claims or tell me the complete opposite!!

I use a couple of these on my iPod Touch (32GB model) - iSkin touch Duo. I have found them to be excellent, although it's a pain getting the screen-film on without something getting under it - the smallest spec of dust causes a bubble. However, once applied, it's great. And if you do get specs of dust/grit under it when first applying it, it peels back off easy enough, and you can rinse off the dust under warm water (the 'adhesive' property is not affected - might want some non-lint cloths though).

Edit: I also forgot to add, it has the detachable plastic screen cover, with hooks onto the back of the device when not covering the screen.
