    SAVE you Ipod and DON’T purchase this!

    I originally gave Overboard a high rating because it worked but two months after I purchased it it leaked. It was used only a few times while swimming in a YMCA pool. It wasn’t abused or stressed in anyway but it still leaked and ruined the Ipod. I contacted the company because I felt it still must be under warranty. I discovered the company is located in the UK. They stated to mail the item to them; they would send it out to an independent lab and have it tested to see if the product was at fault.

    I wasn’t going to waste the time because I got the impression the company was going to admit fault but I thought I’d provide my point and I sent it anyway. I mailed the item to the address provided and also put it to the attention of the person I had been emailing, 5 days later they received the package. Since I never heard from them I contacted the same person a few weeks after they received the package. He stated he never received it. Well that convenient especially since the company received the package 5 days after I mailed and I put it to the attention of a specific person, which I had been emailing.

    All of their products are made from a thin flexible plastic. I actually purchased this for my mother to use while at the pool. I’ve used a H2O product for over 3 years and never had a problem. After this incident I purchased another H2O product for my mother. It works great and the company is located in San Diego, CA.

    Here’s two other reviews I located on other web sites:

    “Case splits and does not work. Overboard accept no responsibility for this. best avoided”

    Another review from another web site,
    “please, take my advice…. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
    it falls apart when you open it.
    and then it doesn’t float.
    then your ipod will get water damage.
    and the company will deny your claim that it’s defective.
    repeat: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
    in fact, run far away from it.
    you’ll thank me later”
