    Hi

    Well basically i just brought a brand spanking new ipod classic 120gb for 175 quid and ive had it just under a week, put a new case on it a day after I got it, after trying a few cases, i take it out of its case today and lo and behold 4 lovely surface scratches on the back and one on the front left hand corner...

    I know there this feeling that when you get a new electronic or infact anything new that you want to keep it clean and neat for as long as possible but eventually it does get scratched/damaged..

    but i just wanted to know if there is anyone that has managed to keep thier ipod scratch/blemish free for a long time and if so, how?

    I've got the iPod touch and I've had it since January, it's still in great condition, or it was until a couple of months ago, when I went to the beach and it got scratched.
    All I did was keep it in a plastic case.
    I actually don't think it's possible to keep it in perfect condition if you use it on a regular basis. If you find a way to do it though, you'll make a fortune!

    I've had my iPod Nano Gen 4 since December. Use it almost everyday. It's got no scratches, surprisingly. I'm just really careful with it- I bought one of those silicone covers and also keep it in a cotton sock thing *shrugs*

    I used one of Knomo? cases for my ipod 4g, stayed in decent condition. Then I used it once too often in the bath and the steam fried the circuits

    Case would probably be the best way.. I used to have mine in a case but gave up in the end

    I've had my iPod for 2 years now and its virtually scratch-free except for a few little ones from when I've dropped it and the case has come off but my headphones however are dead

    My iphone is totally smashed due to an unfortunate accident with a horse up a mountain in Ecuador. I think it's impossible to keep it scratch free, even if you had a case for it or kept it in a sock, there's always times when you have to put in down unexpectedly, or drop it etc. or it rubs against other things in your bag.

    Havinng said that, I actually prefer my iphone smashed. It makes it different to everyone else's, and it's a memory of my time exploring in Ecuador. It doesn't interfere with how it works, so I think I'll just keep it the way it is. Embrace your scratches! It shows it's well loved :yes:

    You can get almost indestructible protective film to put on it, but personally it doesn't bother me enough to fork out for it.
