    Those look pretty nice. Someone in the editing department is fired, tho. If you look down to bottom of page, the clear screen overlay states it is for Samsung's LCD screen. WRONG-O.

    Sorry, I'm a nerd.:D

    That is the same as the SGP case, yeah? I was wondering how that case is and if anyone is using it. I was going to get one of those and it comes with a Screen Protector which I need as well.

    I currently have a Zagg invisible shield full body on it which is a pisspoor product and they finally sent me a reply back to send it back for a refund so I am going to have to peel that off and would need something to protect the screen and body.

    Funny, the Ultra Silke + Screen protector costs $5 less than Invisible shield and looks like a much better product.

    Very nice! That is the same company that makes the hard case I want, the SGP Ultra Slider. I think I will be ordering the Ultra Slider since I see their site has a picture on the Samsung Vibrant. I will post my impressions when I get the case!

    Yeah the SGP Ultra Slider is made by the same company and both those cases come with a screen protector (it looks and sounds like a great screen protector).

    Oh btw, you can get them directly from the SGPStore.com (saves you time from ordering from that HongKong site) but it looks like they are temporarily out of the hard cases (Ultra Slider) but they do have the Ultra Silke in stock.

    I went ahead and got a Black Ultra Silke with the Steinhell Ultra Crystal screen protector for $20. Will let you know if this was a good buy when I get it.

    i bought a pack of 3 screen protectors for 4 bucks and a silicone covered hard case for 5. total after shipping $9. all from ebay

    to spend more than that on cases and screen protectors is insane. 15 dollars for a 2 pack at tmobile and 25 for a case? bite me.

    Spending 20 bucks on a case which infact is just molded plastic and/or other materials is not a wise investment.

    Yeah I'm waiting for them to get the Ultra Sliders back in stock!! Anyone know when they might get more? :thinking:

    Also, I am looking to spend more than ebay price on a case because there is nothing on ebay that suits my needs. Thus, I have to look elsewhere, and along with doing that comes a higher price tag.

    Dang it. I am going to want one of these now. I already have 3 cases (granted one of the 3 was $6. But the other 2 were $20). I am going to have to sell one if I buy one of these.

    I want them both, but since the Ultra Slider series were not in stock, I contacted the customer services and asked when it would be available. They said sometime in the next week. Probably, by the end of 9/10/11 for sure.

    This might be kind of dumb, but, why are you all buying screen protectors? The Vibrant comes equipped with gorilla glass. I don't bother using a protector, and I carry it around with loose change in my pocket. It looks as pristine as the day I took it out of the box. Save your money!

    Ask JimmiKimichi how he got that scratch on his screen.

    He says he doesnt even know how it got scratched.

    The screen isnt 100 percent scratch proof.

    Which is why you wont be seing me or anyone else wipping a key on the screen as seen on youtube.

    If you think gorilla glass is that good then post a youtube video of you trying to scratch you impossible to scratch screen.

    I dont like how they didnt make a cutout for the volume and on/off buttons. Why would they not do that? Looks ok but ill pass. Since i have my Mesh case, ill be patient and wait for another one that like but not being able to touch them makes it harder.

    Everybody post different cases you find on websites.

    sand WILL scratch your screen.... I live in the nevada so yeah... sand is an issue. so a creen protector is a good plan if you live near sand.

    your right coins and keys will not scratch the screen.... those metals are not as hard as the glass screen... sand is the same hardness as the glass so it can and will scratch the screen.

    This is why I got one. I learned my lesson after a trip to Kelso Dunes... I'm still picking grains of sand out of my SLR camera :\

    that sounds like an expensive lesson... I learned when I got a 3" scratch on my iPhone. I couldn't figure it out how it got there. I looked in the pouch i kept it in at the time and found grains of sand.

    That site also carries the protection film. That was the first thing I purchased when I got my phone.

    I just got my UltraSilke case today along with the Screen Protector. The screen protector is pretty good quality and nice and thick. The UltraSilke case itself, is constructed good and it fits the Vibrant well and has well thought out design. Its a rubberized Silicone case and has openings for everything. One small complaint I have is there is no cut out per se for the power button but it has a bump of sorts and pressing it works good.

    Overall, I like the case and screen protector for $20 ( $23.25 shipped) and it is a very good value for the money. I ordered it Mon late night from SGPStore.com and got it today, shipped by regular first class mail (cheapest shipping at $3.26). Case looks good and will definitely protect the phone well from nicks and dings and scratches.

    I recommend the UltraSilke case with the Steinhell Ultra Crystal Screen Protector for the price, in case anyone else is looking into it.

    Thanks for the review! I will be leaving my Realook screen protector on my phone, and keeping the Steinheil one to the side since I love my Realook. I'm still waiting for those Ultra Slider ones to get back in stock... haha.

    EDIT: Just checked the sgpstore.com website, and the Ultra Slider is no longer listed?!? Anyone know what gives?

    Yeah I see the UltraSlider case is off their site now. Maybe because they don't have them in stock?

    You can always give the UltraSilke case a shot. They are good for the price. I was initially contemplating buying the Ultraslider but went with the Silicone UltraSilke case. Ideally I would have preferred a fitted leather case but silicone is ok and for the price, I really like the Ultra Silke case.

    Yeah you can save the Screen protector for later if you already have one on which you are happy with but I thought I'd comment on it since it comes with it and it is a very good quality screen protector and well constructed...not one of those El Cheapo ones. I had a InvisibleShield SP on it and that was garbage compared to the Steinhell. I've long been a loyal buyer of Boxwave SPs for lot of my devices but I think Steinhell SPs meets or beats the Boxwave, which in my opinion is one of the best SP money can buy for any device.
