Default Fuze Skin or Silicone cover?

Just wondering what you guys think is better. Found this over at Amazon, seems like a nice deal:

Do you mean a Best Skin Ever/Invisible Shield skin vs a silicone cover?

Well, a silicone case isn't going to protect the (very) scratch-prone screen, so at the very least you'll want a screen protector to go along with it. I personally chose to apply a Best Skins Ever skin and then occasionally use a silicone case over that (when, for instance, the Fuze is in my jeans pocket and I'm doing something strenuous enough that the sweat buildup could affect the BSE adhesion). The BSE skin, for its part, is great: inexpensive, durable, and unobtrusive.

I had a silicone on my fuze for all of 2 weeks before i couldn't stand it and bought a Best Skin Ever. I thought it went on pretty easy but I have heard horror stories about people having all kinds of problems with it. Don't get me wrong, I used silicones for 5 years but for the fuze the skin is way nicer.

+1 with epithetless. I personally use the crystal clear type case for my Fuze. It protects the whole thing, including the screen, but I still have a screen protector on the Fuze.

Consequently, after 5 months of heavy daily use, I can honestly say my Fuze still looks brand new.

I have heard only generally good things about the BestSkinEver stuff.

I guess maybe I can try putting the crystal clear over the BSE.

I was browsing amazon and I found this:

http://www.amazon.ca/Durable-Flexibl...ef=pd_sim_sw_5

What do you guys think? Seems like a steal. Plus I like the additional screen protector (hopefully it'll act as well as a BSE). It's 6.99 + $5 shipping. Looks better than the $9.99 package of goodies plus a 6.99 BSE.

So my Fuze silicone case just arrived:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/SKIN-CASE-COVER-C...item41528952f9

It's great, but I can't get the clip to stay in place, it keeps spinning in circles. Also, there's a lanyard with it, but I can't find a plane to insert it. I'll get some pics of it later. Anybody have any experience with this? :P

That clip will spin around freely, as I recall....if you really need it to stay in one place, the armband may be a better option.

So I guess it's pretty much useless. What about the Lanyard? It's this one:

I just looked at my Fuze, and I can't see anywhere to hook a lanyard to it.

That's strange as all the other sansa's other than the clip have had one. Oh well if you need something along those lines, look at one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Sandisk-Silico.../dp/B002QUI4JQ

So where do you hook the lanyard on that setup? My skin and belt clip look just like the one in that image, but I don't see where you'd connect a lanyard....lol.

I'm used to key-lanyards. But the one I have has a detachable loop at the end, so I'm not how this works.
