Anyone bought this case from eBay and would like to share their two cents on?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Blackclear-0...item2587f29e30

Looks like a decent thin case that actually has protection at the top. Looking to pull the trigger on this one.

$5.99?? I got the 0.3mm cases at $1.50 each.

There's also a thread discussing it http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2604742.

I have this case, it is very thin, its not TPU but still flexible. The finish is quite good, there weren't any sharp edges on the two black ones I got. The black one isn't see through. I wanted to get a clear one but they were out of stock, but from my previous experience with white/clear cases they discolour extremely easily.

It does get scratched, I have a few minor scratch marks on the back just from putting the phone in the car's cup holder, glove box etc. but you do need the right light to see them.

The case has raised edges around the screen such that the screen wont touch a table when placed flat on top of it. These edges also trap a lot of dust and make it hard to clean.

After a while dust gets under the case but so far it hasn't caused any damage to the phone.

Overall its a good case but you should think of it as a sacrificial item that'll degrade through use. Also, don't expect it to save your phone from a drop. It'll protect the phone from scratches at most.

Hope this helps you guys decide whether to buy or not.

Didn't like it
I bought the case you're talking about. I didn't like it very much. The fit is mediocre. The button cutouts are small, so it's hard to push the buttons. The main issue is that it just doesn't feel good to touch. The material is similar to the textured plastic you get on report covers. Most of this was mentioned in the thread someone linked to above. For me, the quicksand cases are way better and only slightly bulkier.

I'm using this, it's soft plastic. Not even a hard case. So don't expect any protection on shock.
