    i was just inquisitive as to whether acrylic or silicone is better for protecting in general, and the lifespan of each case.

    i currently have the belkin acrylic case but its getting annoying cause dust gets trapped inside and its scratching the back.

    are silicone cases any better and which silicone cases would last a long time without replacement etc?

    thanks in advance!

    They are both good, so get both, in one

    Get the otterbox 2g defender, it is a hard acrylic case with a silicone cover that goes on over it. the acrilyc case provides hard protection while the silicone cover provided protection against drops as well as stops dust from getting in, it also has a built in screen protector so literaly no dust can reach your ipod.

    its only $30 which is what your going to pay for most other cases anyways

    PS - i just got mine in today, it is a superb case, best protection availbile

    I bought a black silicone cover from eBay a few months back. No problems so far to report

    they stick to your pocket a whole lot unless you have massive pockets

    the rebeltouch is nice 'cos it has silicone for protection with a plastic outer bit so it doesn't stick in your pockets

    Or you can get a Sillicrylic case from Myincipio.. I have one, it's acrylic on the back, and silicone to wrap around. it's awesome for protection. Sexy too. =]

    Try the NeoTouch its both.

    Well and silicone cases are a lint catcher. And sometimes they rip so i wouldn't reccomend it.
