I would definitely recommend this case to anyone.
Every port lines up perfect and there are absolutely no gaps. The chrome bezel is completely covered and the only things exposed are the buttons and ports and they are only open enough to allow operation. The silence switch is as easy to operate as it it with no case at all. There are no snaps, it uses friction to hold the two pieces together yet it has never even tried to come apart (pretty cool). The earphone jack is wide enough for even bigger 2.5mm jacks.
NOTE: If you use a screen protector, I found it best to put the case on first then apply the screen protector. The fit is so tight that even the slightest misalignment of the protector will result in the case pulling up the protector. Using the case first-protector second method, I installed Power Support Anti-Glare's screen protectors on both my and my wife's phones with no bubbles or edge lifting even after removing and reinstalling the case several times.
With a ton of colors, you're bound to find a color that suits you. I use a red (actually burgundy one) while my wife has a bronze one.
THIN BUT TOUGH
The case adds very little bulk which means that you can easily find a holder to fit it (I use a Marware CEO Premier while my wife has some designer one). It has a raised bezel so you can lay the phone on a table screen-side down with confidence. I dropped my phone from height once and there was no damage to either the phone or case but I wouldn't want to do that a lot.
I honestly have absolutely nothing negative to say about the Incase Slider. It's one of the few products that exceeded my every expectation.
I filed a claim on the Incase website and they will not honor the warranty for cases sold on Amazon because it was "purchased from an unauthorized reseller and because we have no way of knowing the condition of the product at the time of purchase."
The design of the slider case is nice and sleek, it's just unfortunate that I can't get a replacement for the defect.
The apple website mentions that some brands or types of cases might cause the phone to get too hot when charging, so you would need to remove the case each time you charge if your phone seems unusually hot after charging. What a pain that would be. My phone was not hot at all, and that is another great thing about this case. It does not cause overheating.
This case is sold out all over for a reason. Great protection, sharp looking, good feel in the hand, and reasonable price.

Great case! Used on my iPhone 3 for a few years. Has a little lip around the face that hits the concrete before the screen does, which saved my screen several times.Published 20 months ago by TAKnight
this is the best iphone case hands down, touch, rubber texture for better grip, stays put and have dropped my phone several times, not a crack or scratch. Read morePublished on September 30, 2012 by nzk
This is a minimalistic that looks smart and feels good in the hand. The matte finish has just the right amount of friction: not so smooth that I feel like it's going to slide out... Read morePublished on August 25, 2012 by Kenji Matsuoka

I actually really do like this case. Especially when I first bought it.
However, not even a week after owning it, it began to peel like many others have claimed. Read more

I went through three screen protectors using this case.
The case is so tight that the protectors bubble up on the sides and corners. Read more
