I don't dispute any part of the other reviews - this is an ingenious little case that does a good job of protecting the Nano. Unfortunately the spring that keeps the clip shut has completely busted after less than 5 months of moderate use. (Clipping it on and off a bookbag - nothing extreme.) To be honest, I like the case so much that I'm considering replacing it. But if you think the price is already on the high side, just beware that you might be shelling out for a Nano case again soon.
