    Finally, a nice-looking billet case. I hope it doesn't suffer from reception problems.

    Case looks nice, but the one in the video appears to be more silver than the grey offered. I'd prefer silver.

    Looks surprisingly good and for only 50 bucks compared to the other aluminum cases out there.

    This one may have to get bought.

    Yeah it does look different, if the silver was available I would order it immediately, this looks like the best one so far

    Just became interested in cases as I noticed my camera lens starting to pick up a few scratches . . . I like something a little different, so this case looks pretty neat. Kind of wish they had black. Also considering the e13tron for a little more industrial look.

    I'm debating whether or not to take the plunge and order just to check it out review it and keep it or eBay it.

    Huh...interesting. Aluminum case by a well established case manufacturer...

    You gotta wonder...

    Yep which is the reason I just bought one. If it sucks I can return it. Not to mention that it is only 50 bucks. I paid the 6 bucks for shipping so it should be here in a few days (they say 2-4).

    I like that the case actually mimics the antenna band on the iPhone 4. Check the notches on the case that match up with the antenna gaps. Plus I like the metal buttons and vibrate switch.

    Oddly, from looks alone this actually makes me want to take off my AR15.

    Case-mate has great customer service. I've ordered from them before and they are very quick to respond to you.

    Well...I'd say that this is good news for those of us that like all aluminum cases. If a major case manufacturer is willing to put out an all aluminum case, you'd have to think that signal impact would be very minimal to non-existent. And on the off chance that it does impact signal, you'd have a very well established company backing the product. Case-mate has warrantied a few cases for me up to a year after purchase, so I'd say you'll definitely be ok with returning this case, should you have a reception issue.

    I want! Waiting for reviews first. The alumacase was awful and really killed my reception / GPS.

    Nice, I've been waiting for a nice looking aluminum case to come out since the vapor. Aside from the blade the other aluminum cases are just plain ugly. I think it's the cuts that make the jett so appealing. I'd get the grey one, but after watching their video the silver looks really nice. Anyone know if will ever become available? I'll try shooting them an email.

    So now some of the bigger manufacturers are starting to come out with these kinds of cases? Wonder if we'll ever see a SGP or Speck aluminum case?

    Did you not see Case-Mates video on it? It has foam inserts on the inside so there is NO reception issue whatsoever.
