    Ah, after eyeing this one from my monitor for a few months now I found it for eight bucks sitting in Marshalls. It is most definitely the best silicone iPhone case ever made. I know it's been out for about a year already but after using it for a solid couple weeks, it's perfect. It holds it well, no dust-collecting and an awesome feel with all those cool squares on the back. Feels real comfortable. Now, I'm waiting for the downsides (Because every case has one or two+, Slider scratches the bezzle, iFrogz collects a ****-ton of dust and lint). Anyone want to give me any minus' to the PixelSkin before it makes itself aware on it's own?

    I have the Marshmallow White

    I find it too bulky and kind of ugly. Never understood why people liked that case but it's cheap so....

    Downsidwe: Its made by Speck?
    Im not a fan of the construction of their cases. They seem flimsy to me. And that candyshell almost broke my phone getting it out of it. I know it gets easier over time, but as Ive tried many of Speck's line-up, I've got to say I'm not impressed with them as a whole.

    I will admit, I liked the feel of the PixelSkin, but my girlfriend said it was too ugly for my nice iPhone. I wanted the marshmallow. :( Oh well.

    Agreed. Speck has a terrible line-up. But; the PixelSkin is their best product and probably the best silicone iPhone case made thus far. I like the design.

    I have the white one and I've had it for a month. I love it!! I'm very clumsy and the added grip allows me to prevent much slippage of my phone. I actually have dropped my phone on the sidewalk accidentally so many times and the case has protected my phone!

    I believe the Pixelskin is one of the most underrated cases out there IMO. You really have to try it out and put it on your iPhone. It's a well rounded case!
