    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.

    Amazon.com: Amzer Luxe Argyle Skin Case for Motorola Droid X MB810 - Smoke grey: Cell Phones & Accessories

    $5.18 and free shipping... not bad.

    So, what does real TPU feel like? What are the differences between hard silicone and TPU? Just curious.

    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.

    What I am curious about: Do these cases ever come in anything other than argyle?

    Its funny that those look just like the VZW Gloss Silicone in black or purple. This is really making me wonder if the names for most TPU cases are wrong. 90% of all the TPU cases that I have seen and touched dont feel like Urethane at all, they all look, feel, and behave like silicone.

    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.

    I just don't like the argyle design. I like a simple solid color. Or solid two colors.

    Speaking as the owner of tpu-cases.com, I can tell you the black and purple cases you mention with the diamond texture on the inside are 100% thermoplastic polyurethane. I dont think I've ever seen a glossy silicone case before, they are usually matte are they not? I commonly see TPU mislabeled as silicone but I've never seen silicone mislabeled as TPU.

    A few things:

    1) Thanks for the cases. My wife, brother and I all have one from you and we all really like them.

    2) What happened to the colors for the DX. You used to have a bunch, now it's just a handful.

    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)
