Does the video iPod scratch as easily as the iPod Nano?

Yes. I just received my new Black 30GB Video iPod. Gorgeous out of the box, but literally within a few hours, I'm seeing dozens of tiny scratches. The only thing I've done is hold it and replace it in the soft 'case' it came with.

The unit is more elegant, ergonomic, sexy than I ever immagined, but the scratches REALLY suck.

yes it scratches

I received a 60GB ipod video for x-mass and was very careful with it. It took about a day for it to receive a substantial scratch on the screen surface Sad

I've since bought a silicon case for the unit and while it protects the casing the screen is still exposed.

It seems like simple tasks such as taking it out and putting it in to your pocked results in brush like scratches that seem to be accumulating over time. (i.e. imagine a butter brush with it's fine bristles leaving trace lines over the display as opposed to key-ing it)

Do i love the device? yes.
Do i wish the surface was more robust? you bet.

It would be nice if apple shipped a screen protector along in the packaging. What's an extra piece of plastic to them after gaining your 400 bucks?
