    Today, otterbox generously sent me a Commuter TL$30 MSRP to review. The Commuter TL is a case that combines protection with style.

    The case has plugs for the headphone jack and dock connector as well a a lip and "cored" sides for drop protection
    Ratings
    Protection
    Specially designed for protection with cored sides, plastic/silicone hybrid for impact and dent protection, front lip, port covers
    10/10
    Aesthetics/Bulk
    It looks good overall, but i dont like how the apple logo has a special cutout. Not bulky at all compared to the other otterbox cases
    9/10
    Build Quality
    Good quality like you'd expect from Otterbox, only concern is the thin band of rubber at the bottom by the dock connector.
    9/10
    Accessibility
    Everything is accessible except the SIM tray, might not work with bigger dock connectors or earphone plugs. Silicone and plastic doesn't align perfectly all the time.
    8.5/10
    Value
    Only $20+shipping from amazon. Good value
    9/10
    Overall
    Great protections and looks for a fair price
    9.1/10 (A-)
