My one complaint is about the rubbery strip across the bottom front of the phone. While the rest of the case feels firm, this strip is loose, and easily flexes when I pull my phone out of my pocket, or when I rest my thumb on it while using the home button. It hasn't proven to be a problem yet, but it also appears to be an entirely unnecessary feature, as the rest of the case is rigid enough to keep shape without it.
There are also a couple of rough spots in the corners where there is a seam in the plastic.
Both of these are very minor complaints. This is otherwise an excellent case. Slim and unobtrusive, but appearing to offer protection from drops, unlike many other slim cases which only protect from scratches. When/if this case wears out, I'll likely buy a second.
UPDATE: I've had this case for 2 years, 8 months, and it's a lifesaver (well, phonesaver). I drop my phone like it's a hobby, and while the case has cracked a little and the black rubber has separated from the clear plastic in places, the phone still works perfectly. The case has taken all the damage, as it should. And the stretchy rubber part at the bottom never loosened or became a nuisance, despite my rough handling. I just bought another one of these for my new phone. Highly recommend this case if you want something cheap that will protect your phone through drop after drop.
I really only have one complaint about the case. The rubber bezel around the front of the device isn't reinforced at the bottom of the phone. So the thin piece of rubber going across the bottom is like a rubber band. Unfortunately, when I pull my phone out of my pocket, this seems to be the spot where I grab the phone the most. I'm worried the rubber is just going to snap at any moment. As much as I want to give the case five stars, this is a pretty big oversight and makes the case slightly less than perfect.
Still, this is probably my favorite case I've ever tried for any of my iPhones. They are one minor adjustment away from having the perfect case.
UPDATE 10/16/12: I've had the case a couple of weeks. When looking at my new iPhone 5, people always comment on the case. It looks really good with my white iPhone. The only possible negative is that the case did not work well with the screen protector that was being promoted with it. The case is a pretty snug fit and when I put the case on it bumped the edge of the screen protector creating a large bubble. However, I don't know for sure if it's the case or my incompetence with putting on screen protectors. In any case, I gave up with the screen protector and I'm currently not using any screen protector. I'm still very happy with the case despite not having a screen protector. This is the screen protector I purchased with it. Poetic ProFilm Screen Protector Anti-Glare for Apple iPhone 5 (3-Pack) and Made By Poetic
UPDATE 9/15/13: I still love the thin design of this case and it is holding up well nearly a year later. Changing my rating to 5 stars.
I have the black version and it's got a nice smokey black translucent back an side. It pairs very well with my black iPhone 5.
My wife has the white version on her white iPhone 5 and it's exceptionally good looking because the side and back are very transparent and really let the aluminum back and side shine through.
I've tried numerous similar cases from the top tier case/accessory manufacturers and a majority of them in the past seem to have these really annoying molding swirls that ruin the appearance of a slightly translucent case. This case has the appearance of almost being milled out of a block of rubber/plastic, there are no visible remnants from the manufacturing process and it just looks outstanding for being so inexpensive.
So I'll summarize:
Barely adds any thickness to iPhone 5
I feel good about my purchase, unlike dozens of other similar cases.
There is one piece that is rather flimsy and I could see breaking in a few months, that is the thin rubber directly under the home button.
