    Saw this case in Best Buy's ad today so I went to the store and picked it up. The original price is 24.99, but is on sale until Saturday for 19.99. There are three colors Blue, Pink and Black although my store only had Black. The case of course is Griffin's "Apple Bumper" case and for the most part meets my expectation on all points except a few. The main thing I was disappointed about was the buttons. Don't know why, but every Griffin case I purchased have buttons that are stiff and less responsive. Also I feel as if the case was poorly made. What I mean by that is the clear part shows leakage of the black molding around it. Now I know that Im being a little meticulous, but thats just me :). Other than those to downfalls it is actually better fit than the bumper. Has very little give when squeezing hard, but with normal use the give isn't noticeable. So with out further a wait here are my pics if you have any question go ahead and ask.

    I really like the look of that case, it looks very sleek with the clear sides. How would you compare it to some of the other popular cases as far as the functionality of the buttons and things like that?

    Yea like I said in that mini review the buttons are stiff no way close to the responsiveness of the Apple Bumper. Sort of like a cheap silicon the buttons just suck.

    I can't find this case anywhere online, not eBay .. not even on Griffin's website.
    I also checked best buy too and they didn't have it on their website, I really want this but there are no Best Buy's near me to go in-store.

    Agree about the black leaks of the mold, I've had the case for awhile now the buttons especially the sleep/wake button is extremely stiff on mine.

    I have sent an email to Griffin's support, hopefully they can hook us up. I just found it odd that it wasn't anywhere to be found.

    If anyone finds a link to buy this anywhere please post!

    It is pretty impressive more so than what I thought

    That's interesting, they don't have it on the Canadian site. Anyone want to ship me one? :)

    This just might be what I'll get since I cannot seem to find the Griffin one anywhere. Where did you buy your from? I can get the Black/Clear for about 25$ shipped on eBay Here

    Also you can get many different colours, Pink, Purple, Green, Blue

    You can get the Scosche on Amazon for anywhere from $14 to $20 depending on color. I got my black on there while it was right around $16.

    The Case-Mate Hula case is the same as well. Larry Greenberg just did a review comparing it to the Scosche and he like the Case-mate better.

    Here are the Case-Mates. http://www.case-mate.com/iPhone-4-Cases/Case-Mate-iPhone-4-Hula-Case.asp I love the yellow one! I'd get it if I didn't have an ExoVault coming this week. $150 for a case is my limit for a while (yeah...I'll end up caving in though...I only have 25+ cases for this damn phone now!)

    We are all being played by these case makers, Conspiracy Theory?

    I'm disappointed in seeing this. I expect more from the "real" case companies.
