Best silicone cases?

I've read most of the iLounge reviews for the 3G nano cases, and I've decided I wanted a silicone one, as my previous experiences with hard cases didn't exactly go well.

I was thinking about either the Switcheasy Silicone Biscuits or PDO's TopSkin. Do any of you have either of these cases? If so could you tell me a bit about them, like
  • Their clickwheel sensitivity
  • How good their screen protectors are (protection- and transparency/visibility-wise)
  • Would the Silicone Biscuits' hard screen protector move around and possibly scratch the screen itself?
  • And any other things you might have wanted to say about them.

If you don't have either of those cases or know about them, do you mind recommending to me some good silicone cases the protect the clickwheel and the screen?

Thanks so much. This is my first iPod and I really want to protect it. :]

I would definitely recommend the Switcheasy Silicone Biscuit over the PDO Topskin.

The PDO Topskin is made of flimsier material. While it does come with a belt clip, its plastic and not very sturdy. The other problem is when you remove the belt clip, it leaves a hole in the inside back of the case which will be a lint/dirt trap.

The Switcheasy Silicone Biscuit has much thicker silicone on all corners and comes with a bottom port protector. The hard screen protector is easy to install and does not move around once in the case. I ordered directly from Switcheasy - only $12 incl. S&H.

I don't have an iPod nano, but I would recommend something from iSkin. They have the best cases out there!

I have the Red and Black Silicone with the grip (Belkin)

Ok the click wheel sensitivity is "pretty" good, when you dont use the wheel for like an hour the sensitivity doesnt work for some reason, it has to get a little warm to work. its hard silicone which is good, the grip doesnt really feel like "Grip" it just feels like small bumps. the screen protector though is the best. its hard plastice cant even bend, which is good. Its a good case but the screen corners can get some dust which isnt that good but it protects everything else.

The best case I ever bought was from a hongkong dealer on Ebay and it cost me around 2 dollars. It was a perfectly made black silicon skin that looked really professional looking.

I have a DLO silicone case - it's OK.

My Clear acrylic ones from Belkin are better.

My preference would ultimately be iSkin...

ifrogz is pretty cool too if you wanted to try them out. ^^

I've dropped my nano a couple of times out in the parking lot and it's saved it! I don't care much for the wheel cover sticker, but as for the wrap itself, it's definitely worth it.

I have an iSkin and several iFrogz - all Audiowrapz - I prefer iFrogz. The iSkin always had static build-up - which I just thought was normal - and I have never had that problem with the iFrogz.

I agree that iSkin makes the best cases out there. I have been curious about iFrogz tho and if I lived in the US, Id order one just too see what theyre like. But oh well. Im getting an iSkin soon and I hope its as good as my Evo3 used to be for my 5G iPod.

iSkin is probably the best, though iFrogz seems to have some good ones...
