wow, that sucks.  :(

i've been lucky with mine.  mine dropped from the second floor to the tiled first floor landing (about 10 feet?) thanks to the cat knocking it off the post i'd put it on.  no case or anything, and the back popped off a bit, but once i snapped it back together it worked fine.  (the power button might be just a little 'stickier' now.)  a few other drops, mostly it sliding off the couch, but the only time i had it misbehave it seemed like the battery drained a couple of hours after i'd charged it and it froze up.  it wouldn't even reset until i charged it again for several more hours.  that was a while ago and it hasn't done anything like that since.  i do keep it in a neoprene case now, except when i'm reading, charging, or loading it.
