Replica Taktik cases on ebay?

Anyone have any experience with them? I contacted the seller and while they are replicas, they look like pretty good ones.

The thing is I'm not sure of the materials used and I doubt it's real gg. Is the taktik aluminum? Because seller said these are not

Yea it worked on my laptop, I was on my ipad before. The reviews seem mixed, the biggest gripes being the screen being insensitive and quality control problems. Hmm

Turns out that taktik canceled their alloy case due to reception issues and is now using the same polymer material that these replicas are using. Starting to think these replicas might just be leaked lunatik cases because they are being manufactured in china as well.

Edit: I bit. I'll post pictures and initial impressions when I get it.

It's amazing that you can purchase a fake case when the real Taktik case is not even out yet.

Damn this looks tempting. The sheer bulk of the case is ridiculous imo, but it looks so cool..

Thickness wise it's smaller than the defender. I dig the design though, it looks like something out of halo lol

I was going to order the aluminum one good thing I didn't because I would of been mad if it affected my reception like my old aluminum case!! But overall I'm pleased!!
