Completely agreed. I got the Impact Mesh myself. Very good case but relatively overpriced.

Okay dokey.





No pics of the case with a phone in it though, I tried it for only a short while before pulling it out in favour of the NeoHybrid.

Short review: It's a good case but overpriced. I really thought that by "mesh" the case had holes in the back, but no. There are only dimples on the inside of the case, the back is totally smooth (which I don't really like personally).

The 3DO band is thick around the case, making the device fatter (and theoretically improving the side impact resistance) but there isn't much of a lip around the front.

IMHO it's good if you want a simple see-through case with good side impact resistance - though like I said, it's relatively overpriced.

Definitely interested in seeing some photos with the actual device inserted. May I ask where you purchased it from?

Direct from Tech21. I'll try to post pics with it inside later, which is gonna be hard considering I only have 1 (digital) picture taking device.

We appreciate anything you can accomplish, if you get ahold of a second capturing device (friends phone or webcam or whateveR) if you could take a few different angles of it and try to capture the lip representation best you can that would be awesome.

I'm a bit sad to hear about very little lip around the screen, I had high hopes for this case but it sounds like it might not be that great now. So the whole case is semi flexible like a TPU case then? but its on pretty firm on the phone?

Well, it IS a TPU case. It just has an extra 3D0 ring built into the edges.

I'll try to get somebody's phone to take some pics. But it really has a very limited lip - the NeoHybrid is miles better in this regard.
