    Just got a TPU case from Future Shop. http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=520012
    It's one of the few cases available right now in retail. Here's a little review with pictures.

    Flexible and solid TPU:

    Thickness:

    It's a little thick for my taste. I guess I was a bit too used to the iPod's crazy thin body.

    Headphone jack:

    As mentioned, it gives you enough space for headphones.

    Ports after application (Out of focus):

    Overall, the ports are just fine and it doesn't really affect the speaker's performance. Had no trouble with the USB connector and several headphones.


    Camera:

    The camera opening is one straight hole. Nothing special.

    Case buttons:

    The power button is very easy to use. They volume buttons however are painful. The require so much effort to press. I'm dissapointed. Hopefully I'll get used to it.

    It connected to my Griffin speakers without hassle. Very simple and had no trouble inserting it.

    That's the exact case that I originally bought, but since it was neon green I ended up returning it. They had neon green pink or baby blue, if they would have had white I wouldve gotten that one. I liked the case thought it was good protection and I agree about the volume buttons ....PIA!

    Nice little review, although there wasn't much in the way of opinion (aka text)

    Yeah... volume buttons...bleh. I want to get a headset with volume controls as an alternative.
    What's 'PIA'?
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Yeah. Personally, I like reviews that have pictures, helps me decide better.

    I'm willing to try and answer any specific questions you and the forum have about the case. It's really basic though, nothing exciting.

    PIA = pain in the ass. And yes it was a nice basic case. I'd like it in black. I think I'm gonna stick to ordering cases online. $25 (at best buy) for a case seems so pricey. Online you can almost find em half price.

    Fantastic review KingMonir. I notice the box says "Shock Absorption." Does this mean that if I drop it 4 feet off of the ground, that the screen won't crack? (That's what happened to my iPod Touch 2G, 1 week ago)

    I was looking at getting this one - I didn't know the white option would be so... white.

    For some reason, the second to last pic amazed me... I could never catch a pic that perfect without glare or something that would interrupt it.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure. I think it's just impacts and bumps, by the feels of it I expect to survive little drops too. I haven't tried dropping it 4 feet to be honest lol.
