    Just received my case today. I like the style of this case, it also protect the back of the phone unlike the bumber style of all the previous aluminum cases that I've bought. The fit and finish is great and so far no reception or Gps issue.
    Here are some pics.

    yeah I figure that a lot of people not going to like this case, But I like it because it remind me of the first case i bought for my phone the Switcheasy Nude case.

    how is it mounted together. is there a silicone layer in the inside of the case? maybe a pic of the case without the phone?

    Wow I actually really like this if it were like a black chrome finish or a different colour. Is there a layer inside for scratch protection? And also how do you put it on? I like how theres no screws involved... (I think there are none anywyas)

    Not my style case. But it looks like it's a tray design with a "clamp" that mounts at the the top, and it appears the screws are out in these pics.

    Yes it hold the phone in place with the extra piece on top. It's tighten with 2 tiny screws on each side and the whole inside is line with some type of foam so your phone won't scratch or touch the metal. actually I don't even use the top piece because I had my phone installed with the Bodyguardz whole body kit and it fit very tight in the case.
    As for the performance, so far signal and gps is perfect . I think it's the best performing aluminum case that i had bought .

    i like the design, seems like there is a lot of spaces for dust and dirt to get in. interesting though, not many cases out there with that type of design and it being made of aluminum also adds to its one of a kind features.

    I do agree. Definitely different. Not a fan of this though, I do like the bumper style alumium cases better.

    Lol, well it does look a little like it. Anyway after using it for a couple of days I switched back to the Blade. I like the look of the Blade better but this case's performance is terrific. No signal loss or Gps issue whatsoever. I don't see any loss in reception and Gps is very accurate.

    I bought mine on ebay but I guess they don't have it anymore. I just googled and found this site that have it and for around the same price that I paid.

    http://www.pandamimi.com/apple-i-all.html?keywords=crossline+mc-1

    I see that they have the same case for two different prices. I don't know what's the difference. Maybe you can email them and ask.

    It looks to be a stamped aluminum case from China. Stamped cases cost less to make then the CNC aluminum cases from Element and the like. So why is this $60?

    Compared with other aluminum cases it'll be thinner then the usual aluminum cases.

    Wow! A blast from the past.. I bought a monaco aluminum case with one of the early gen ipod classics. Loved it. Well built, well packaged. Lasted for a very long time and kept the classic in mint condition. I never remembered the name of the company until looking at that page..I still have their packaging. lol.

    I think they are worth a try. I can't speak for this case specifically, but it looks like it is built around sound principles. Their quality is good, the only nagging issue might be the clasp. The one on the classic, and another for a nano, both had slightly weak clasps. If you bend it in slightly beyond the norm however, it will be a good solid fit. (This is unless they changed it dramatically -- the photos look similar)

    Case

    So did you continue to use the case? I'm thinking about getting that case myself and you are the only person I see who has done a review on it. Was there anything you didn't like about it? Thanks.

    I gave the case away awhile ago. But it's a very nice case,thin and light with no signal loss or GPS issue whatsoever. The only thing that I didn't like about the case was the top metal piece that hold the phone in place . I like how it looks better without it.
