So I received my Candyshell Satin yesterday and am very pleased with it. The satin type finish on it gives it a nice feel, not slippery, but comes out of your pocket easily. Also, no scratches. The main bonus for me is that it docks perfectly in my iHome radio on my nightstand. I give it five stars so far

I loved my CandyShell Satin too. Until ..... they came out with the "Grip" case. I received it the other day and I think it is the best case for my needs. Getting ready to order another "Grip" in red. I am sure I will still use the Satin case from time to time. I like to switch out cases. Enjoy your new case. Speck is the best.

i have a speck cs satin, white/pomodoro, that i use with my red running suit. Well, from putting my phone in my front pant pocket, the red from the pants wore off onto the satin cs and now the back of the case is turning a pinkish color
SO be sure when you use this case, its not against fabric where the color can rub off and get on the case. As of now, i'm still not able to get the red-pinkish off of it. i'm going to try a couple more things to see if i can get it white again.
overall, i do love the case tho
(edit: after speaking with speck, turns out the case was defective)

SOOOOO....idk if any of you were wondering what ever happened with the dis-coloring of my cs satin white/pomodoro case. heres the deal: I tried the hairspray trick Brinda suggested, no good. I also did the magic eraser thing Kehjj04 suggested. no good again, but thank you both for you suggestions I also tried a few other things to try and clean off the color, no good.
I called Speck and explained the problem to them - the Rep told me that this issue has NEVER happened with any of their cs satin cases. He then proceeded to ask me what supplier on Amazon i got them from--so i told him. the Rep told me it was most likely a fake because the only people they distribute to for resale are Amazon LLC themselves, and he gave me the advice that next time i purchase a Speck from Amazon, to make sure the seller is Amazon LLC & no other supplier. So for my troubles he gave me a 20% coupon to use on Speck's site to replace my case(or whatever one i want), and said to get in touch with the supplier to hopefully have a return/refund processed.
So i emailed the seller, and long story short, i had to email them pix of the 'bleeding color" through the case and they issued me an RMA# -- when they rec the case back they are giving me a full refund. So at least i'm not out my money AND i can get another one from Speck with a 20% discount

If your thinking about getting the black version, either get it directly from the Speck website or if you use Amazon, make sure the seller on the item is "Amazon LLC"
hey, these things can happen, and considering all of the cases i have--this is the only issue i've had with any of them

thankfully, i was able to return the case to this particular seller with the issue it had, and they will be issuing a refund to me as well.
I recently ordered a Satin for my wife and when I received it from Amazon it was the regular candyshell. Turns out on their site when you select the blk/gry satin and then change the color to the white/red it switches it to the regular candyshell. I contacted amazon and they gave me a prepaid return label and are giving me a full refund with no shipping charges. I ordered the Satin from Apple Computer & Accessories from MacMall, The #1 Mac Warehouse for $29.99 with free ups ground shipping.
