    Hey, I need some help looking for a new case for the 1g. Currently, I only have the BSE protecting my ipod and its starting to peel off. BTW, do they have a warranty where I can get another 1 for free? There has been a lot of lint build up so the edges are peeling off. However, it has done a great job of protecting it for 6 months now.

    Anyway, I'm looking for a case that is stylish, professional looking, and of course, protective. I plan on using my new case along w/ my BSE for double protection. I've only recently started looking for cases and realized that most of the nicer cases are being made for the 2g. I really like the InCase Slider for the 2g, but not so much for the 1g. I also feel like those are overpriced. I'm looking for something around $25 or less and worth every penny.

    Any suggestions? Thanks, I appreciate it.

    We've posted many reviews for 1G iPod touch cases over at Hack the iPod touch.

    You can find the reviews here, under the 1G iPod touch section.

    Thanks. I've read all of those reviews and they're great by the way. However, I was wondering if there are any other cases that haven't been reviewed that people recommend. None of the cases reviewed on your site really appeal to me.

    I'm looking for a case similar to this: http://www.case-mate.com/phones/apple3G/iphone-3g-barely-there or http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116732

    Do any companies make something similar to that for the 1g?

    Also, has anyone tried this out: http://www.case-mate.com/ipod/ipodtouch/ipodtouchcases ?

    That last case you mentioned by Case-Mate has in fact been reviewed on Hack the iPod touch. It's Case Mate's Signature Leather case. In my opinion, it's a good case but:

    a) Don't get it in red (it's an eyesore)
    b) It is like a cushion so a fingernail can dent it and leave a mark
