    I'm looking for a leather type flip case with the front flap that closes over the screen for the ipod touch 4g with holes for camera, etc. I was holding out for a review on one I saw - but someone finally reviewed it and it seems not that good.

    So are there any out there? I really prefer this style case.

    if you want a good brand name case, do not buy from ebay.
    well you can buy from ebay, but buy brand name brands.
    do not just buy some cheap case off of ebay.
    those cheap no name cases will last you a couple months, at most.

    check out ilounge for reviews.
    i have no idea if there are good flip cases out, but just search around.

    I've purchased many things on eBay and they aren't bad quality items. Not everything from eBay is cheap. And if you think about it the "name brand" stuff is usually made in Japan too. Were talking about an iPod case not a stereo system.

    still.. you get what you pay for.
    so basically.. you pay 220+ dollars for a iPod and yet you decide to skimp out on an extra 30 bucks for a well known, good case? honestly makes no sense to me.
    yes it is not a stereo system, but it is protection for an expensive, hard earned device.

    Oh no I have a "brand name" Belkin case, but I also have an eBay case that I bought for a temporary case. The eBay case is just as well built as the other. And plus when you buy things from Japan you're getting it straight from the source. It's cheaper cuz you're not dealing with the middle man (stores). I will say overall a name brand case would be better, BUT why not pay $5-$10 on eBay instead of $25 to $30 in a store.

    Which one did you see that was "not that good?"

    I have one called Splash FLIP Napa Leather Case, that is very good quality leather ... like the DLO brand flip case I had for my 1G iTouch. The only problem I have so far is that the case needs a little jiggling for the camera openings to align right, if you go back and forth between front and back cameras.

    Hope this helps. Again, which one's have you seen?

    That logic doesn't make the best sense...

    A cheap case from EBay is perfectly fine. I use a TPU Diamond case for my 32GB 4G and it is good. Just because you spend a fortune to purchase the iPod that doesn't mean you also have to dish out a fortune for protection, a cheap one will work just fine.

    See, your logic is like saying... You bought a car for $x thousand and yet you didn't even put on a good body kit
