    It looks like a good deal, but the Amazon listing does raise a few questions. First, there are no reviews. Secondly, the price has dropped like a stone for a product that has not been out that long. You can't help but wonder if there is a problem with it, and the company is trying to dump its inventory.

    Yea, I'm sure this a bunch of defective cases their trying to unload for cheap to unsuspecting customers on Amazon! :confused:

    conspiracy theorists, I love them, can't get enough of them!

    This came to my attention directly from an email the ctc store.

    The email was ANNOUNCING the product, so that's probably why there are no reviews.

    I had purchased ctc before, and despite my returning the first case I bought from them, because it sucked, they did provide excellent customer service, it arrived promptly, the return was easy and I got all my money back including shipping so I hvae no reason to think this is on the up and up.

    I did buy one and will report back as soon as I receive it, and I don't mince words on reviews so if it sucks, well, I tell you so!

    In the mean time the deal will no doubt be over.

    The way people drop dough on cases for this thing, I thought I would pass this along.

    As I said seems like a no brainer for those looking for an inexpensive hard case!

    Got this Today-OK not Great!

    For $7.00 I can live with this.

    It does not cover the entire section where smart cover attaches and also does not cover the antenna portion, which may not necessarily be a bad thing. I seem to get better reception when nothing is obstructing that portion of the ipad, i.e. when its naked. anyway here are some pictures!

    For 7 bucks I was willing to give it a try but the code no longer works.

    Ugh so I have wi-fi only and have to live with the gap on the top (sux)...

    Goldens, how is the weight/durability? Hoping this is using the same material as incipio feather.

    I would say it equals feather, its light and durable.

    Certainly worth what we paid for it. Anymore and I would have returned it. Its just too much of a hassle and would cost half what we paid to return.

    I would not recommend as someones sole case and reflected that in a review on Amazon.

    I got my clear case, it's awesome. More of like a frost material but very light and very durable. Loving it, thanks goldens.
