Not sure if anyone mentioned it but this case rocks. I originally bought the Belkin clear TPU case from the Apple store and then decided to get a black TPU case from iLuv to hide the black bar on my 3G. Not only is it cheaper by like 50% but it fits just as good as the Belkin! The pattern they show on the pictures is barley visible. Well worth the price and offers all the same benefits of the Belkin TPU case.

I'll fire up the camera and get some pictures up shortly.

May I ask where you bought yours from? I see them on ebay for 21.99 with free shipping, I'm thinking of purchasing one.

Definitely interested in seeing your pictures. I had looked at this case but couldn't find any good pics of the front, only the back. Knowing about the pattern being subtle is great info too. Please post the pics.

I purchased the case from ANTonline.com. It was actually $19.80 with shipping and taxes.

I also have a Speck anit-glare cover on which was cheaper than the PowerSupport (that I've always used on my iPhone). Speck provides two screens and I think the quality is on par with PowerSupport's offering for a bit cheaper.

As you can see all the holes line up perfectly evenly. Really happy with the case and the price. Belkin is a bit too expensive at $49.99.

How thick is is case? Also how good is the fit? Any play or wiggle room? I've been waiting for the clear switch easy nude to go back in stock but this case looks promising. Anything yiu don't like about this case?

I ordered the clear Iluv case too which is a lot cheaper than the belkin. I can't wait for it.

Thanks for letting us know regarding the speck anti glare film, ordered mine from amazon with free shipping $17 only!

Thanks for the pics! That does look nice although the design is not as subtle as I hoped (unless the flash is really making it stand out). I want to see what the clear looks like, I think that would be much less noticeable.

Yes I agree that the Speck anti-glare screen protectors were better than I expected, also cheaper too =D

There is zero wiggle room and it fits perfectly tight. When you slide your fingers to the edge it doesn't bend as in silicone cases.

The design on the back is subtle its the camera flash makes it stand out.

The Speck screen cover is on par with PowerSupport I used in the past in my opinion.

hi,

i posted this same case a couple weeks back

please look at my original post here:

iLUV has obviously slapped on thier logo on it.

if you want the same EXACT case, you can buy it from shop4tech.com for 14.99 and free shipping. cheaper and it doesnt have the silly iLUV logo on it.


also, i was at the grove last weekend night and the little cell phone accessories cart next to the apple store has these cases also (no iLUV logo) and they have these for 18 right off the bat. Im sure with a little price haggling you can get them down to 15.

The iLuv logo almost looks photoshopped onto those pics... :confused:

i ordered the clear iluv case from amazon the other night and it should be arriving tomorrow. I will let you know how it fits with the hard candy bubble case because i ordered that from amazon too lol. both came out to 69 bucks and some change. not bad if this combo can really work well together. will keep you guys posted.

The design and branding turned me off of this case. The patterning on the back is a bit too much if you are just looking for something clear. iLuv as well as Macally seem to think that their logos are a desired feature on the back of the cover which they are mistaken. Belkin has the right idea by being discreet. I'll pay a little more to get exactly what i want, not 95%.

Order the black one then from that website it has no branding.

Why would I do that when I want clear? Again, 95% is not good enough. Initially, I thought a silicon/TPU cases are all the same, and that is farthest from the truth.

got mine today and promptly returned it.

The logo was way too large not to mentioned all the scratches.

Bad product.
