Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A lot of the reviews on this product are not for the new version or are for the clear shell. This review is for the new version aluminum shell. The product comes in two pieces that snap on securely with very little effort. All ports and buttons are easy to access. The power button is covered by a plastic flap that still allows you to turn the system on.
They have done away with the flimsy hinges that plagued the previous version of this product. The protection this offers is limited to scratch and scuffs as his provides little to no shock and drop protection. It looks and feels great in your hands. The only negative is that there is a strip of plastic fake leather like material that looks grey in the picture is a shiny leathery/brown color (see photo). This looks out of place, but it does match with my SF bags case. It seems like it could peel off though. I might try it at some point.
I hope this has helped clear up some of the misinformation on this product.
Just received my case today and not very happy with the product as the top is starting to peel off as the photos show. Otherwise a solid case and would've enjoyed it if it wasn't already defective. Photos show the difference in one side opposed to the other. Would recommend other options that don't rely on glue.
