No worries. I was just trying to understand what the idea behind your thought process. It is fair to say it is on the high end of tpu but some people buy $60 and $ 80 cases. I think that no one case is right for all people. If you are happy with the $3-10 then I think this is not a bad thing. I have no problem with a lower cost option and am glad that they have them out there.

Agreed. You and I may know the difference, but I try to explain the difference between average readers. There is a difference and cruzerlite always has really good deals for those that are serious buyers. A Cruzer case for a phone is around $10 and a tablet is about $20. Given the difference in area and 2 or 3 times the material, the price is logical. I have a white one and it was only $14.xx directly from their site. Given the choice of $8 for the cheapo amazon version I have or the Cruzer, I'd pay a few more dollars and get something nice.

The cheapo cases are great for something quick and cheap, but not longevity IMO.

Just wanted to chime in here because I did a review for an Androidified case in the past. Yes, it's more expensive than your $1-3 TPU case. What you're paying for is a quality product meaning:
  • More precise cutouts - Some TPU cases that I've purchased simply don't match up with the buttons or make it hard to push a button.
  • Design - Most people will say that the design looks better than your normal every day TPU case.
  • Customer Service - Some eBay sellers are great, but I'd prefer to deal with these guys.

Whether or not that's worth the extra cost is up to you, but let others be the judge of whether or not the cost is worth it to them.

Well said Kryptos. I can't believe how many people are so against spending a little extra money on such a beautiful tablet.

So I bought a cruzerlite N7 case off Ebay from a person who is also posting in this thread. The quality is the same the generic S wave and X pattern cases. I have a X pattern case for my HP Touchpad and a S wave case for my wife's Nokia phone. The Cruzerlite case has the same quality as the argyle style cases for various devices on eBay (which i bought several over the years for previous devices). You're paying extra for their design.

They look good but why can't they have the buttons covered. If done right it makes for a much better experience then the cutouts.

It looks like a nice case - very stylish and shows off the brand. I appreciate the style and that it's well made and I really want one, maybe two - one bright colored, one basic black/gray - But I refuse to pay $20. I might go as high as $10-12 + shipping ~$15 price would be very tempting, even in a market where I've seen comparable tpu cases for $5 shipped. If Cruzerlite has a decent sale or coupon code, etc then I'm in. For now I'm looking at the more reasonably priced offerings - and there are tons.

Re: Cruzerlite Androidified Case for the Nexus 7 now available
Ordered a couple cases from cruzerlite for my gs3 and I absolutely loved them. Not only that but when there sad an let mix up they took full responsibility and more than made up for it. I will definitely be ordering a case from them for my N7 in the next couple of weeks
