    Do u have a case for your 2G touch?
    if so, share your reviews.

    I'm currently thinking about whether I buy the SwitchEasy RebelTouch for 25$
    or the Premium Silicone Case combined with a LCD Screen Protector for 4.30$ together.

    what do u think I should buy?

    P.S

    I have this as my case for the 2g. It's about the same price as the RebelTouch, but I had the RebelTouch and I ended up giving it away for this. It's thinner, lighter, and has a very nice feel in your hand. It doesn't show the back, but it's a really soft black rubber, great for impact. If you want a nice case for similar price, I would suggest the Reflect.

    does it protect the ipod as good as the RebelTouch?
    and does it fit the 2G exactly?

    a typical silicon case should protect table-height drop.
    unless u would be dropping your ipod often..go for the cheap stuff.

    i got the same case from dx extreme and its nice

    It fits perfectly. I can try and get some pics for you if you are interested. As far as protection goes, it may not be the same, but it protects it very well. The rubber backing is very tough, but the front you have to be careful with.

    Ok, I thinks I'l probably go for the cheap silicone one,
    and if I'll see it's not protective enough I'll get a RebelTouch or a Reflect.

    Anyone got reviews about how the silicone one protects the ipod?

    The RebelTouch case looks good...
    Are the Griffin cases better than the RebelTouch?

    I have the Rebel Touch and it does fit like sprayed on paint. But it sometimes holds down the upper volume button and the power button. It is cool looking though.

    Have you read this?

    "Some of our customers have experienced some tightness on the power button when installing our RebelTouch product. After further investigation, there are some variances in our product manufacturing in our ADSP (Advance Dynamic Soft Polymer) skin in which caused this issue. If in any event you have experienced this issue, we would like to replace the ADSP for you free of charge. Please email us at rebeltouch@switcheasy.com for a replacement.

    On behalf of SwitchEasy, we are so sorry for the severe booboo."

    That's why it's holding down the power button, because of the tightness, I guess.. Have it changed.

    I have the RebelTouch and it is great. The spine does scratch but thats not a big deal to me. Its true the power button is held down a little bit. But, I have accidently dropped it twice with the case and it has held up pretty good.
