    My Otterbox Commuter case arrived today. overall impressions were great. the case is built great, has a great finish, fits great, the buttons works great, and even comes with a screen protector that fits much better than verizon crap. id say this is a great $35 investment. i'm extremely pleased [​IMG]

    Might be just me, but I find the side buttons (volume, camera, power) easier to use since I put my Otter Box on. Better grip and more responsive, IMO.

    Should be getting mine in in the next day or so. Looking forward to seeing it on my own droid and not just on pics.

    Thanks for the pics. Very nice. I'm also considering this case.

    Nice pics. How hard is it to remove the back half of the case? I remove it for use in the car dock...

    Looks ok. I like more style than rugged looks on my phone but looks like it protects from dust and other things very well with the buttons and ports covered by rubber that you can open.

    the back part of the case is extremely easy to take off, just like any other simple snap-on case. nothing like the body glove crap. and the way they made the mounting tabs is awesome. other cases ive tried interefere with the sliding keyboard a lot. this one creates no resistance whatsoever!

    Thanks for the reply Jose. :)

    I might have to give up on the carbon fiber case and get this case instead. ;)

    Looks great:)

    Now, if OtterBox would come out with a holster for it, like the VZ Shell/Holster combo, then I would get one for sure.

    Just got the case, and it fits perfectly. No complaints at all with that. The top part surprised me with how well it fit also. Now at least on mine the very bottom, near the speaker, has some give and i can push down on it and it moves. Not a big complaint at all. But the only real complaint i have is the material the back is made out of. I personally like the rubber feel like the actual back of the droid has, but this case is just smooth plastic. Kind of feels like it may slide out of my hand. But overall it is a great case and looks good.
