Yeah, thanks for posting that link. As I've said, I'm over the Otterbox Defender. I have the Trident Cyclops, dropped it from the fire truck and it had zero damage to phone or case.

The Ballistic seems like a beast, if I didn't have the Cyclops, I'd get it in a heartbeat. The Ballistic seems to clearly be the toughest case for EVO.

My biggest deal is dust. my defender is by no means sealed. i'm constantly having to take it apart and clean it. this bothers me for two reasons, 1) i'm mildly OCD and 2) all those dust particles rubbing against the phone are gonna do damage at some point.

soon as one of our fellow XDAers post a proper review, i'll most likely be purchasing one!
Sarcasm. I haz it.

Will be ordering the commuter series from amazon for a steal ! the prices are pretty good.
I just bought an Impact series, and I have no complaints. Mind you, I wouldn't purposely drop it to test, but for me, it's not a big deal. It was a mere 11 dollars on amazon, so pretty good bang for my buck methinks! I moved up from a barely there (all I cared about at the time was protecting the back and the camera). I dropped my keys on my phone twice -- not a big deal I thought, since I have an invisible Shield -- not true, lol. The keys scratched both the side of the evo that is exposed as well a the case. Anyways I digress...this case provides full protection, and I really can't find anything bad about it. I take care not to put myself in situations where I could drop my phone, so shock resistance has never really been an issue. This is just me though. If you have more requirements, then perhaps it would be wise to get something better.

Great review, it sounds like the perfect case for you! I am using the Trident Cyclops right now, probably a similar level of protection and am also very happy.
