iPod Covers – Want one?

I have 3 iPod Video covers and 3 iPod Nano covers to give away if anyone wants one. You have to review them for me though and take some pics. I bought a few and want to know peoples opinion on them.

I’ve one now for my iPod Video and it seems good enough but not perfect.

My issues are that it’s not snug enough when fitted, as you an see by the view from the top:

Some of the screen is covered over too:

Although you can still watch video on it:

I’ll still use the cover as I use my iPod mostly for listening to music and even watching videos with it on isn’t that intrusive. The main thing though is that it’s very good for preventing scratches. Question is, would you pay a fiver for something like this?

Pictures of the Nano cover are on the way once my tester gets back to me.

    Looks good, I only have a 40gig normal iPod myself though, so I don’t know if it would fit. To answer your question though, yes I would pay a fiver for it. I had to pay like 25euro for the last iPod cover I got.

    I think they’re different dimensions James. The new iPod Videos are thinner than the previous iPods. I could be wrong though and you can have a cover if you want one.

    Damien – sure I’ll take a Nano cover for review, if you still need someone to do that.

    I have a colourful blue iPod Mini. I’ll take a cover for trial purposes and report back, if you like. I’ll probably send it back to you for someone else to review afterwards, though.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever felt the need to buy protectors for any of my gizmos. And I’d say I’d balk at €5 (or any other price other than zero) in a shop and prefer to take my chances.

    Its a bit like the mobile phone covers that were all the rage a few years ago. It spoiled the purity of the phone. I didn’t like them.

    Simon, these covers won’t fit iPod Mini. Right now I just have the Nano size and the ipod Video size. I think the Mini have different dimensions? If not I’ll send one on.

    I I bought the Agent 18 video shield from the Apple website (see link below), after using one of the rubber covers for a while. It’s the best cover I’ve seen so far. It offers great screen protection and affords the same functionality, without being that intrusive. for 35 quid it was well worth it. The rubber one was hard to take off, had no screen protection and gathered dirt like a tabloid journalist.
