    I ordered a case from Kineticcase.com and I love it. So far no signal issues and I love how it feels. Check them out.

    I too like the look of the Kinetic Case. However I don't really see the point on spending that much money on an aluminium case. Just pick up a nice $25/$35 case from Speck, Griffin etc and that will do me fine.

    Griffin are more about quantity than quality.

    Also remember that since I'm only 15 I need to stay on a budget. Under 70$, if there any. Maybe the Jett or the Blade.

    You can cop a Jett for 35$ with the discount code going around the forums for a limited time only.
    I'm considering getting it too, but I want to see a video review first :D

    For some reason I am attracted to the el13tron case. Like the fact that it does not look like an aluminum version of a plastic case. The Casemate looks nice but I think the extension pieces for the buttons might leave scratches.

    I know kinetic is doing a pre-order sale for $65. Not sure when it ends.

    Lots of great photos and reviews around, but it would be great if someone that has a few of the aluminum cases (perhaps a reviewer?) could post a few photos of the cases next to each other to get a feel for the relative dimensions of the cases.

    Head over to GadgetMac, they have a few aluminum case reviews. His favorite one at the moment seems to be the e13ctron.

    at this point...only Atomic Hybid has it all : both form and function.
    I've pretty much lost faith in an all alum case...since I don't think it's a good idea to compramise signal strength for the look (not even one bar or a few db of signal).

    but Vapor is the best looking bumper / case .

    I've also been wondering. Why an aluminum case?

    I don't think it's has to be alum. it just has yo be a material that's looks good,light and durable with reasonable price.
    I couldn't careless if it's stainless steel or platinum ;-)
