    I've had the Pixel Skin HD, it was a decent case, not too protective. I did have some issues with it, the button feedback through the case was terrible. I couldn't really feel the clicks of the buttons, that kind of bothered me. Maybe that's changed since then.

    I am getting a Magpul Executive case today and I plan on doing a quick video review of it tonight for my initial impressions. I think it will offer more protection than the Pixel Skin HD will.

    Unfortunately I don't have my Pixel Skin HD anymore so I won't be able to do that. I ended up giving it to someone else.

    My Magpul Executive case just came in and I put it on. I really like this case, it fits perfectly.
    Very small lip on the front so you could lay it on a table face down without the screen touching.
    Good grip, but not a lint magnet. No manufacturing weirdness.
    Looks like it offers moderate protection.
    The buttons feel good through the case, good feedback.
    All the cutouts are very good.

    For $10 I'd buy this case all day long.

    I assume the regular Field Case is just as nice and probably offers a little more protection. I went with the Executive version because it looked thinner. I am very impressed with this case. I'll post my video tonight and some photos as well.

    I also had issues with the PixelSkin HD including poor button feedback, bubbling my screen protector in one corner, and having great difficulty taking it off. That said, I still thought it was a very good case with a great look, a pretty good tactile feel (decent grip), and not a dust magnet like silicone cases. 8 out of 10.

    Pixelskin is bulkier.

    The Magpul is very thin. I like the feel and look of the Magpul, and as stated, for $10, you cannot go wrong.

    Here is my quick review of the Magpul Executive Field case:

    I've gotta say I really like the case a lot and for the price ($10) I don't see how you can go wrong in a market thats flooded with overpriced cases.
