I had been using a Speck FitFolio for my iPad 2 but it was showing obvious signs of wear and tear with less than a year of use. This time, I wanted to get a TPU case for my Nexus 7. A quick trip to Greenhills (last September 2012) yielded nothing. Anything that is not Apple or Samsung will be hard to find. A search on sulit showed several cases that were over P1,000 which I didn't want to pay for.
I came across good reviews on Nillkin cases so I hunted for a seller in ebay. I eventually found a Hong Kong based seller http://stores.ebay.com/ecdigishop that offered free shipping in Asia so I ordered one for USD 12.70. Standard shipping would take 2 weeks. True enough, it arrived exactly 14 days after I placed the order. Unfortunately, I would have to claim it at the post office because I had to pay customs (P100) for it.
The package was shipped from Singapore. Unboxing follows:

|Packaging is typical China|
|Available in 4 colors|
|Comes with the case and screen protector|
Now, my Nexus 7 has a case that provided protection without adding too much thickness. So far, it has survived a 2 foot drop on a wooden floor with no damage. I highly recommend the Nillkin TPU case for protection against scratches. While the Nexus 7 already has a good grip, the case will provide you with an even better grip.
