They look just like the Amzer argyle cases that are sold on Amazon.
I always thought they were a hard silicone. They feel nothing like TPU.

$5.18 and free shipping... not bad.

I am most likely mistaken, but I always thought that TPU couldn’t achieve that same high-gloss and tack that silicone could achieve.
I am fairly certain though that silicone is more flexible than acrylized urethane (TPU). TPU is more resilient to gouging and scratches, but even silicone has some self healing properties in that aspect. Silicone is more resilient for impact energy absorption. Silicone has one big downfall in my opinion, and that is insulation for thermal and electromagnetic energy. This causes the battery and phone to heat up and sometimes shutdown, and it impedes signal strength, so there are trade offs.
My silicone cases all have incredible tack, regardless of its sheen, some are dull and one is high gloss. It was the Seidio Active "X" (not the Active) that I noticed the heat build up and minor loss of signal.
The TPU case I own, is very dull and has no tack at all. It feels like it is always coated with talc. Its much more rigid, stays cool and doesn't block the signal.

The clear ones must be TPU but the ones that are black and purple with the diamond texture on the inside are surely silicone.
Plus, I just hate the offset rectangular speaker and mic cutouts.

I got mine from here:
TPU-CASES.COM, - All TPU Cases Shipped Free in the USA
It's not tacky like silicone at all. It doesn't attract pocket lint either. Any silicone case I've ever had was flimsy and grippy.

Re: Droid X TPU Case
Very happy with the TPU covers I just got from Monoprice. Better than the ones I originally got from Verizon. The Headphone hole is the correct size too. $1.13/ez (~$3 shipped, 5 are less than $9 shipped)
