Here's a search for silicone cases on Amazon. All you may additionally need is a cheap screen protector for complete coverage.

It has helped tons of my devices survive my wife and kids and they can be tough on devices.
I dunno these look like overpriced screen protectors to me.

watch the videos showing their durability, then decide. Plus, they occasionally go on sale.

invisible shields are pretty durable, it's just annoying to put on cleanly. A slim case and cheap screen protectors can do the job just fine. screen protector gets scratched, just put a new one on and your screen will always be pristine.

precisely what I was thinking, giving the extra effort required to install them one'd at least expect them to be cheaper.

Thats the point. I have several devices. Some a few years old. And I havent had any reason to replace the invisible shield on them. I put them in my pocket with my keys. Many drops survived and just plain general handling and no scratches.

But yes, the point is you have to actually be careful during your one time installation. Guess its worth it to me to do a good job

i got my Sansa Fuze a week ago and i have scratches on my screen. I mean i got them from my keys in my pocket, but i mean, it doesnt affect the view. The only reason i would get something to get the scratches off is if i was selling it. (I dont plan on selling it any time soon)

Why don't they sell the units with this kind of protection built-in?

I bloody hate this car dealer sales model the electronics company are going for, making essential kit optional accessories. "Yes, your basic player costs you $99, but by the time you're done adding in all the stuff we left out, you're back up to $200! Aren't we smeggin' cute?! Oh, yes we are!"

The stores charge you $40 for charger kit accessories you can buy online for $5. Just the same as crooks like Best Buy selling printers without cables but oh, you can buy that data cable for a mere $20 while it costs you $3 out of a supply catalog. I understand there's a price premium to be paid for being able to get your hands on what you need in thirty minutes with a trip downtown versus a week or two through the post but I do believe they are abusing their position here.

yes, it scratches like crazy. mine is already scratched up pretty badly with only 3 months using it. and I can say that I've been obsessively caring. I wonder why they keep building these glossy, butter-like, scratch-friendly screens anyways?

I tried the silicon one first, and was not too happy w/ it. I then ordered one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Transparent-Cl...284319&sr=8-10. These clear hard cases are really nice. Perfect fit and doesn't add too much size to the player. I would highly recommend this for Fuze protection and looks.

Does the screen scratch or the body of it?
I got a hard clear hard poly case. Have my Fuze 8 months now, not a mark on it. End of story.

it doesn't actually scratch THAT easily... heck, the only scratches i got in the past month was a few along the wheel, and that was because i put it in my pocket, forgot it, and tried shoving my shirt in a suitcase! no screen scratches as of yet...

that could be either luck or a new batch of more resistant fuze's.
