That's tricky, the matte diztronic case feels smoother which is nice, but not good for grip. It also has a small (can be seen in my pics) imperfection that bugged me on the bottom left. The cruzer has the same thing on the tip right, which doesn't bug me cause my finger never touches it. The texturing in the cruzer case makes it feel less soft, but is a big plus for grip so that's great. I think as long as you get a good color the Cruzer is better, some of the colors make it look unprofessional/childish/cool. (< which could be great if thats what you're looking for). The black diz case looks very suave.
