    Tough question!

    Here are about 8 million of them...

    8330 case, Cell Phone PDA Accessories, iPod MP3 Accessories items on eBay.com

    And, yes, they are probably very 'cheap'.

    Mine is Seidio, and although I wish it were less expensive, I am happy with the quality of the product for the price.

    The OP isn't looking for a case but an actual housing,
    which will be very hard to find at the price point stated.

    I don't know if you're going to find an entire housing for less than $40... I would buy from a trusted site and make sure you get something quality.

    That works too! I've never replaced the lens before, but I believe you need a T5 and T6 screwdriver to take the device apart. Someone correct me if I am wrong here.

    To replace the lens, you can just pry or pull it off. Removing the whole housing is not necessary for a lens replacement. Although it isn't too hard to take it apart if you wanted to.

    If you only need a lens, then save the extra $$ and just replace the lens

    Go for bbenriched and use the promo code "B3rryPart$" for a discount
