SwitchEasy's Biscuit case was one of our top cases last year, and the company's foray into the silicone skin market, the Silicon Biscuit, is likewise excellent, if a little bit odd in design. Modelled after a traditional tea "biscuit" (read: cookie), the Silicon Biscuit features interestingly "scalloped" sides. The Click Wheel controls are clearly marked, and a raised nub in the center makes it easy to find the selection button. You can get at the headphone jack, hold switch, and dock-connector port at the bottom of the case, and SwitchEasy even includes a removable dust cover for the last.

Best of all, the Silicon Biscuit includes a hard-plastic screen protector that you slip into the silicone. And the whole package is just $10--a tough price to beat. About the only negative thing about the case is that it's easy to potentially misplace the dock-connector port's dust cover when you're not using it. Otherwise, the Silicon Biscuit is one of the best values in the category.--Dan Moren
