    Default One's big 'ol honkin' case Review-O-Rama
    Agent 18 and Griffin Elan Form Hard Shell.

    At some point these have both been reviewed, but now it's my turn. First, if you have a black phone NEVER buy a clear shell case. Figured I'd mention that incase none of you have figured out how bad of an idea that is. Doesn't have anything to do with the review here unless you take into account you have a black phone and want an agent 18 case........ I wouldn't.

    The Agent 18 case fits like a glove and is sleek and non bulky. It has two rubber stoppers on back to keep it from scratching the phone..... WIN. There's nothing to complain about and it is DIRT CHEAP. Buy it........

    The Griffin Elan Form hard case is just awesome. The "leather" on the case looks like it was glued on by a three fingered sweat shop worker, but it passes the "I only paid $8 for this case who cares" test and looks great from 5 feet. The protection is top notch and the fit is slimline and worthy of anyone looking to keep the bulk down.

    I purchased BOTH cases for under $20. My recommendation... buy them both they are cheap.

    PS- I combined these cases with a screen protector from BSE that is fingerprintless.

    The Agent 18 case I had even with those stoppers I got to tell you it beat the crap out of my iPhone 3G and when you drop it the case splits open and leaves the phone unprotected, hopefully your experience will be different

    Normally I don't like the "leather" cases that one doesn't look too bad. Or the clear one. I have a white 3GS with an orange SoloFX on it. It fits nice and doesn't add bulk. I hate it not being white though. The white color makes it look so much nicer IMHO. I might get the Agent18 or a white Solo.

    ..and when you hit it with a snowmobile it gets crushed...........don't drop your effin phone. Cases aren't made so you can get pissed off and sling your phone around. They are for aesthetics and scratch protection. Impact resistance for a hard shell that sits against a hard shell is an oxymoron.

    Marshall's FTW...

    I'll have to check that out next time I see one. eBay is usually pretty pro, too.

    Went to Marshall's last week and picked up the Agent 18 in black and a two pack of the Griffin Wave cases (blue and green) for about $16. I really wanted the faux leather one, but couldn't find the bottom part of it in effing Marshall's.

    Thanks for the tip, one.
    Respect your elders.
