I seem to have bad luck with cases anyways, LOL..every time I've tried to use one either straight from the VZ store or buying it online, the part that fits onto the screen seems to catch on my keyboard so I have just resigned myself to the fact that I'll need to use my leather case and screen protector and just call it a day.
Those metal cases do look pretty sick though!

I just received the aluminum case for my Droid and it fits great. Yeah you have to open it to get to the physical keyboard but I really don't use it so no issue for me.
Anyway, it is protected on the inside by a neoprene liner and fits snug. All access points are good to go. Hardly adds any weight too.
The one question I have is if anyone has already used these cases, does the aluminum hinder call quality and reception for you. I seem to be having some issues with signal strength with the case on. I have done a PRL update and have only seen a slight increase in reception.
Please comment if you have experienced any problems like this.
Thanks in advance.

I am curious about that metal case also. When the case is closed, do the borders of the screen hinder typing on the on-screen keyboard?
I had a case like this for my Treo and loved it. It did not affect the reception on that phone. I don't think it will for the Droid either.

I too have the metal case. Yes, it is almost impossible to pull down the notificatin screen. The case itself does note interfere with typing on the virtual screen.
It fits very snug and seems quite safe. It is enclosed so yeah, no physical keyboard.
The dealbreaker for me, was that I could not get decent satellite reception for the gps. It would find 2 or 3 satellites, but would stay greyed out. Then when I took it out, tada, full satellites. I have great call reception so I couldn't tell if it had a significant impact.
That being said, I still like it. I may use it when I am doing activities when I am more likely to drop it or hit it, but it isn't my primary case.
That's my 2 cents

They look very cool but I dunno.. My droid gets pretty hot at times and right now I have a plastic clear case. I would think the Metal one might burn me or my luck the my phone might blow up :/ very cool concept though!Follow me on Twitter @Pollita_Droid

The Case from Verizon Sucks
I had purchased one of those Snap On Covers when I purchased the phone in November and the grips on the case did not do its job. The phone can easily fall off the cover which it did the other day in my Kitchen with hard ceramic floors and all I heard was *CRACK*.... I paused for a moment and when I picked up the phone there was a hairline crack about an inch long! I am so upset, does anyone think Verizon would replace this since after all it was the fault of the stupid Verizon Case which clearly did no do its job?
