    Overall: 4/5, Recommend: Yes

    Edit: Photos posted below.

    Pros
    - Perfect cutouts allow easy access to all buttons, ports, etc.
    - Thin and lightweight; adds no bulk to the iPT 4G.
    - Soft silicon feels great to hold.

    Cons
    - Mine shipped WITHOUT included stand (Griffin support is sending one).
    - "Grip" bumps on back are made of silicon, not very "grippy".
    - Does not come with a screen protector.

    Overall, this is a terrific case. The top frame has a rigid skeleton coated in thick silicon; I'm not afraid to drop the iPT 4G face-down. Admittedly, the "black" color is more of a gray, so if you absolutely must have midnight black, skip this case.

    Once I find a case that I can be guaranteed will not push up my Invisible Shield screen protector on the edges, I am grabbing it up!

    Is there a raised edge on the sides? I need to know because I'm afraid to drop it on the screen and shatter it...

    EDIT: Looking at the pictures I'm going to ASSUME it is, so I went ahead and bought it with 3 day shipping

    Shipping Method: UPS Three-Day Select
    $24.99 - Subtotal of Items
    $0 - Discounts
    $8.77 - Shipping and Handling
    $0.0 - Tax
    $33.76 - Order Total

    Woohoo I'm excited, it's a sexy case and I'm tired of waiting for www.switcheasy.com to come out with 4G cases even though there like the best...

    Yes! I think in part due to the iPT 4G's super-slim profile, even with silicon, this case is very easy to pull out of a typical pocket. Tested with jeans, dress pants, and shorts.

    Absolutely. Reinforced, very solid, covered in silicon. The raised edge isn't big, but I have no worries about dropping it face-down.

    Update: The missing Griffin micro stand arrived today. It's actually two pieces of interlocking plastic, and it's great!

    I considered that case. Can you please post a picture of your iPod touch in the case?
