    I tried the Verizon high gloss silicone and the Seidio Innocase Surface. So far I like the Verizon case best. Anyone else find anything better that is a slim fit and offers some level of protection?

    No. I got the ebay case for $5 shipped. Well, you get what you pay for. It's worth the $5, don't get me wrong, but I'm not happy with it.

    Not sure if you got the high gloss silicone but it's much better than the rubbery silicone and adds very little bulk...

    I like the Verizon case/holster combo. The screen is TOTALLY protected when its in there so I dont have to have a screen protector since the screen is only exposed when I'm actually using it. I'm a firefighter and my phone goes on every call with me (just not into the fire) and my D1 survived 8 months of rough use with the same style case so I figured it would be good for my X too.

    I like the slim verizon "carbon fiber" case.
    It works good, slides in my pocket easy and I find it easier to hold the phone than without.
    It has a slight raise just above the screen so that if dropped face down on a flat surface you wont hit the screen

    Cost me ~$12.50 with discount through my employer

    I second the Verizon carbon fiber case. It even fits the car dock with the slight modification to the dock.

    I have been using Otter Box for a while now, and it is the beast. I previously used the sorry Body Glove case, not even close in comparison the Otter Box shines in all aspects. It is pocket only and so I don't use any type of dock.

    Agree about Otter Box. I have the Otter Box Commuter case and find it protects the phone very well and cleans up well also. Doesn't fall off and has covers for the headphone and charger slots.

    There is no Otterbox Commuter Case available for the Droid X. That may be why you can't find it.:icon_ banana: They are pulling your leg...

    The seidio surface would be perfect if the upper and lower lips didn't interfere with button pushing or dragging down the notify bar. The glossy silicon doesn't give you enough room to finger the power button. The extended battery distorts the silicon case but fits fine with the seidio. So not entirely satisfied yet.

    I agree 95%. This is the case I am using. I think it is the best so far, but like Schimm, I am not completely satisfied. When the Otterbox Commuter comes out, I will be on it. I have never been dissatisfied with any of their products. I don't know why it is taking them so long....

    I think I finally found the winner today. So now I have three cases. :icon_eek:

    It's the Verizon/Moto body glove, the same case I used for the Droid 1. And I now have this instinctive desire to slide out a phantom keypad on the X. :redface:

    Anyway, on the plus side the lip on the top and bottom does not extend far enough to interfere with operation of the notify window or bottom buttons. Thumbs up on the extended battery....case fits with the extended door (BTW, I let a Verizon store employee apply the case and he knew the extended battery was there and had no problems snapping it into place. Comes off easy too).

    On the negative side the seams show more on the side. Not because of the extended battery but just because the way the case is made.

    $29....I'm done now with cases. :icon_ banana:

    IMHO I don't like cases but I love Zagg shields, they offer superior protection and added grip.
