    I just received mine last night. im happy with it. the fit and finish is better than i expected.

    as for interfering with reception, if i look at the phones signal meter, in my house it goes from -90db to -99db. in or out of the case, the phone has 3 bars. it makes calls and does full data with out any problems that i have noticed so far.

    Thanks for the update. I'll use the case at work mostly, so having reception while in the case is good, I don't need it at the best signal all the time and my area always has great verizon reception. I'm going to use the case mainly for drop protection on the job.

    Where exactly is this 'mic hole' people here speak of? The case looks to have the right specs.

    There is a second, noise-cancelling mic on the back of the droid. It's almost impossible to see the slit in the case, but this picture helps:

    That's not an issue for me, the first pic in the first post doesn't even look important to have uncovered. That isn't worth putting a hole in a case for IMO, if it was crucial, the case makers would have had a slot for it.

    Thanks for the link though, appreciated.

    The case makers don't realize it's there.

    Look at Siedio's line of cases. they did a whole run and then realized that 2nd mic was there. Then they redesigned the case to include it.

    it is crucial.

    I checked them out when shopping for cases and the metal one suits me better for work because dropped phones in anything but metal cases or otterbox style cases end up as broken plastic shrapnel, I'll take a cut in reception since I use speakerphone many times anyway.

    *sigh*

    This case is aluminum, and as the OP states, it will dent when dropped from a good height.

    Realistically the worst drops i've ever had happen with a little forced behind them too; trying to grasp the phone resulting in me slapping it away, or if i have brushed the phone off my lap or table on accident.

    This is definitely not equivalent to an otterbox.

    Also, the 2nd mic is for noise cancelling. Using the speakerphone has no relation to it. you're still talking into the mic(s). people have reported echoing effects when the 2nd mic is covered.

    JMHO. do what you want, but that looks like a rip off. I've read bad things about this case.

    EDIT: also, unless you go with some ebay cases, most of them (OEM, Verizon, Seidio..etc) are a rubberized hard plastic. They don't "shatter".

    I got the Body Glove hard case at the Verizon store, very happy with it. Only drawbacks are that its a little on the thick side, and you can't take the phone out to use the media dock. But it provides great protection, I dropped my Droid edge-on from about 4 or 5 feet, it survived. That being said, this aluminum case looks nice, I like how it will keep the keyboard from sliding open (I never use the keyboard). I'd use the dock most nights if I could remove the case. Also, it's very thin. I don't think it will protect as well as the rubber coated plastic Body Glove case I have now though. Its a tough call, but I'll hold off for now I think.
