So, in addition to the clear TPU case that I got from the eBay seller that I reviewed here (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=905936), I also got the smoke version of the same case. The eBay page for it ishere (http://item.ebay.com/320524508047).

I will regurgitate what I said in the other thread, which is as follows:

The shipping was ultra fast. Below are some pictures of important areas. My comments about the case in my first day's worth of use are as follows.

First, I think that the case is very well made, very similar to the $50 Belkin, and feels just like TPU is supposed to feel. It doesn't have any smell or any off-putting odor of any kind. Second, the case feels good to hold, and is a snug fit on the iPad. Third, the iPad's face is protected from direct impact on a flat surface due to the beveling of the edge that protrudes just enough on the sides. Lastly, it was $13. All in all, it kicks the **** out of the Belkin in my book. Buy it and don't look back.

Below are the pictures that I took of the case by itself, and the case with the iPad in it. Makes the iPad look so slick, but feel so nice and rugged. By the way, all of the ports are cut out perfectly and the buttons offer a raised surface to accomodate their position and maintain their functionality. An additional note about the smoke version, it makes the iPad look super sleek because it kind of gives it that blackened transparency, which is seriously professional and very cool at the same time. Enjoy the pics, definitely buy from this guy, he is on top of his business.

I have to be honest with you. I think the smoke looks amazingly sleek and futuristic. However, the clear maintains an iPad-ish look. They are both amazing quality though.
