    I had my iPod touch 3G for a month now, and I decided to make a review for what I use to protect it. I use a 'Belkin Silicone Sleeve' to protect the body of my iPod. It came with 2 Silicones, White & Black. I think they're both great although I prefer the Black more thank White ( No racist comment intended

    ) because the White gets dirty and "yellowy" after a while. But as I said they come in two packs so really you get the best of both worlds. Also with these Silicone Sleeves, it hardly adds any bulk at all to your iPod and maintains its thin look.

    I also bought a Belkin Screen Protector (3-pack). Put it on quite nicely, although the first one was messed up. ( I guess that's the reason why they had put 3 sets because the first is a warm-up LOL... But whatever ) I managed to perfectly put mine on without bubbles in the second one, YAY.

    You might be thinking why use a screen protector when it is glass and highly scratch resistant?? Well, I used to say that too. But one day when I was with my friend and I had a play with his iPod touch I saw 2 scratches on the front. That really got me worried that it might happen to mine as well and I started to being obsessed about it (Which sucks btw). Finally I gave-in and bought a Belkin Screen Protector, and now I can sleep better at night!

    Also if you're hesitating about Screen Protectors affecting the touch screen ability, it doesn't interfere with it at all. You can use it perfectly fine. Does it ruin the view you ask me? No -Crystal clear! One thing I have to say about the Belkin Screen Protector is that the cut-out for the Home Button isn't round, which leaves the Bottom without a protective film ( Just a tiny bit ) I guess it's good too because it will be easier to apply.

    Overall I think Belkin is a good company to buy case & protection from, durable and stylish.
