    Recently got some shadescases and did a review on them:

    Review Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cK-1HRkdeA

    You can buy the cases @ shadescases.com

    Good Points:
    -Charge in dock with case on
    -Very thin and light. Adds barely any weight/material
    -Protects screen and full frame from scratches

    Bad Points:
    -Super thin so may not protect from getting hit like silicone can do
    -No button indents so without looking its hard to see where the buttons are

    First video review so hopefully you could understand me.

    So basically you've bought an overpriced condom for your iPod?
    Nice review anyway though. I don't like the look of the case personally.

    Not trying to be mean but IMO it was a fairly terrible review.

    The reasons i back this up with are:

    1. You are spinning it around too much, gets a little irritating.
    2. Nothing is organised, you are just thinking up random facts on the spot, so there are big gaps and lots of "umm"s in there.
    3. And finally, alot of detail was missing. At first i was unsure what material it was made of, if it was silicone or a hard case, and you never physically mentioned the price.

    Sorry about the criticism but this is just my opinion.

    Do what i do mate. Sit there for 30 minutes or so before you do the review writing a script. Then just read it out off camera. And only pick it up when you need to. Its not hard really. Hotfuzz have you seen my review of the otterbox?

    My Soulcal Shades came with a case, I'm pretty happy with that.

    Actually I really appreciate the criticism in order to improve my future videos. The only reason I did not mention the price is if the price changes in the future, it would be out of date. Its hard to judge yourself at least for me so ts always nice to hear constructive criticism.

    Try to pretend its not your case when your reviewing it. Try not to get attached to it. Watch my review and you'll see what i'm on about. I talk about the downsides of the Otterbox aswell as the upsides and i dont leave anything hidden.

    EDIT: Just had a look, nice job.

    No worries, it's much better to give constructive criticism rather than just criticize like a lot of the others.

    Not too bad of a review. Plan before-hand next time.

    ShadesCases sends everyone their "shades" to review.

    the cases are an atrocity if you ask me.
    i had the "pleasure" to try out a couple and they are yucky!
    they would not come off. sometimes the case would stick to the screen. air bubbles. did i mention they wouldn't come off? lol
    i even ripped one while trying.

    i loved the cocept of the case (covers everything on your ipod which i love) and the colors were really nice.
    just the way they made it. materials used i guess idk made it a horrible case.

    returned them!
