I don't want to state the obvious. But I took that case out of the package and tried it in the apple store. It's apperant it wouldn't survive a drop. The snap together ones are pretty crappy.
I have the new Eco slider shield. It's great.

a good all around case is the seidio innocase
next is the incase slider but it's a little thicker and the rubberized coating doesnt feel as nice as seidio's
but the absolute best plastic case IMO to have on while using the phone is the incipio feather. why? because it feels like nothing is on there. it's closest to naked as possible(other than the film stuff)
yes there are other cases that have way better protection, but those tend to be on the thicker side..
im considering the speck candyshell white.. any opinions on that? how much thicker is it than the incase slider or the seidio innocase?

When I purchased a BB Pearl about 2 yrs ago, I immediately got a otterbox defender case for it.
I now have a 3GS and of course I got the Otterbox Defender for it. I never use the belt clip thing with it...I look dorky enough and I don't think a utility belt of phones (and other assorted crap) would do much for my "street cred".
As for the OtterBox, I accidentally dropped the phone while looking at headphones in a store. The phone fell maybe 2 feet...and I was like...oh crap!
I checked out the case..the phone (yes i removed it from the OB) and all is good.

My Top 5 iPhone 3GS cases
I love cases as much as the iPhone itself and I've become very picky over the years.
Here is the list of what I have and my Top 5 cases:
Number 1: IvySkin Quattro T4 case:
iphone 3GS ipod touch 2g cases Hard iPhone 3GS case iphone battery case
By far the best case I owned. It's design, finish, slim profile and best of all the glass screen guard makes this case my #1 choice
Number 2: Speck CandyShell case:
Speck | CandyShell Case for iPhone 3G & iPhone 3GS
Ranked 2nd because it doest have a hard screen guard and it scratches after couple of weeks.
Number 3: Vaja leather case:
Vaja Leather Products
#3 Because after using it for 3 months, the belt-clip broke. For such a high priced item, I expected somthing better. Overall a great case though.
Number 4: Otterbox defender:
iPhone 3G / 3GS Defender Case // OtterBox.com
I bought this case before I found out about the IvySkin T4 case. This was great before I got the T4. IvySkin case provides the same protection but is slimmer and has a glass touch screen so that's why this is ranked #4.
Number 5: Switcheasy case:
Welcome to SwitchEasy
This was a great case for only a week. After the first week, the bottom of the case became loose and looked awful. I contacted them and they sent a new one.... I had the same issue. It looks great but I hated the hanging skin on my slick iPhone.

I've got a SwitchEasy rebel serpent and a speck candyshell. I really like them both but the rebel serpent feels a lot more solid in the hands. SwitchEasy just seems to be on another level of quality. The downsides to the SE case is that the bottom may sag and it's not as easy to take on and off.
