Came across this sexy case the other day:

Any reviews?
I'm currently using the Trident Aegis Case, which is getting a little stale - was hoping for something new.

I hear it scratches pretty easily. It's also VERY overpriced. I'm kinda tired of my Aegis too. I've been looking for some nice TPU cases, I'll probably end up going with the G2x Hybrid Case.

Could you point to the "Hybrid Case" you're talking about? I just finished skimming through an older topic about the Speck Case and quickly crossed it off my list lol. After reading about the scratch problem, I know my OCD will get the better of me.

Yes it scratches and scuffs up pretty easy for sure. Definitely very overpriced too, fortunately mine was free. Anyway it's a very sturdy and reliable case. Fits perfectly and the built-in buttons work just fine. Every input is accessible. It looks nice on the phone too. I honestly would have considered paying in full for it if I didn't get it for free.

Never dropped my phone on pavement with the Speck case and the case looks like it was thrown in a blender.

Thumbs down I bought a speck
Worst decision ever. After about a week, the front rubber bezel trim material started peeling off, it scratches quite easily and starts to look like complete ass about a month after owning/using it. Bought it direct from T-Mobile and they wouldn't exchange it within 30 days. I'm very responsible when it comes to taking care of phones, it goes in and out of my pocket. That's all, folks. Would not recommend a Speck case to anyone, unfortunately. I saw them at CES 2012 and it looked like they were catering to the mass iPhone population, and had no useful advice. I have the black with grey trim. Also, you have to use very slim headphone plugs. 1/5 Stars.

I bought one used on ebay cause yea, the cost of new is horrid. I didn't care about minor scuffs/scratches cause i cared more about utility and protection (also the hard shell 2 piece i had was a major pain for when i had to pop the battery), this one is very easy to remove if needed. 40$ new or 7.99 used with free shipping here yea i took it for 8 bucks and am quite pleased. No issue with peeling rubber or any of the likes (even though used)

I dont care if the back is scuffed or scratched a bit cause quite frankly, i dont look at the back side of my phone often, and im not accustomed to placing my phone screen down. power button and volume keys are stiff but still easy to manipulate. if i had bought the case new for 40+$ id rate it a 6/10, but for 8$, Ill give it an 8/10.

I've had the speck hard shell case on my phone since it first came out and I love it! Being a mechanic, I'm not easy on my phones at all lol. But I must say, this has to be the best case I've ever used. Its very strong, and has saved my phone from 6ft drops with ease (oops lol). But from what I've seen, yea the black outer shell scratches but I could care less, it serves its purpose. Keeps my phone safe from falls and whatnot, and also keeps it clean from my dirty hands haha.

I had the tmo speck rubberized case, it was nice for awhile, but since it uses different plugs depending if its in your pocket or on your belt, the pocket plug rubber came off in a month, then after 3 Months the whole rubber backing fell off... not worth the $30 IMO.
