    SchneiderMan I just read your review of this case. I already have the sw-box knockoff one but the fit is horrible. Would you recommend the original one? you mentioned about some small flaws which concern me.

    Thanks.

    I would but if you are indeed concerned about those flaws then just pass on this one.. If you can live with them then try it out!

    If it's not real, can you sue them for stating Genuine SwitchEasy in the title? :D

    I think it may be real, looks like it from the photos, and if you search "switcheasy" on their website, this is the only thing that comes up, see

    yeah I was just wondering since SchneiderMan seemed so sure that it's definitely not real. ;p

    If it turns out to be a fake, I'll return it and get my money back. If its real, then great!

    dont buy from deal extreme

    it took more than 2 months for my items to arrive, their customer service is horrid... they wont refund your money and will make excuses and postpone it to the point that you wont be able to do a paypal chargeback (after 45 days)

    Really? I've bought things from them in the Past and they usually get to my place in 2 weeks.

    DX shipping is a mixed bag, sometimes it takes months and sometime days.

    I've spent more than $500 in DX items and 90% of the stuff sold as "genuine" are fake. Headphones, portable chargers, flashlights, etc.

    You've spent $500 in fake ****? Or did you know that before hand, and just kept coming back because genuine gear is not really a factor for you?

    Not trying to bump an old thread, but it looks like the item is gone from their website.. I got a shipping notification for it but they removed the listing

    This if the official response regarding this from SwitchEasy:

    "Deal extreme post real product pictures but ship fake ones.
    Products purchased from non authorized retailer are often counterfeit,
    re-boxed, defective or gray market goods, which are in some cases
    practically identical to genuine SwitchEasy products, are generally of
    poor quality and performance.
    If you can tell them a deal that is too good to be true, more than
    likely it is. Because it's unusually low price compared to the usual
    retail price and they will end up with something less than they were
    hoping for."

    I purchased one, but I'll trash it once I get it. After this debacle along with other things I'm done purchasing cases for my i4.
