The one you ordered probably would have been my choice too...if I had to choose from those...and I had a gun to my head...lol.

I guess it should be ok.

EDIT: Wait...does it seriously say "iCute"? They'd have to shoot me.

Maplin is relatively well known over here. I have to agree though, once you have had a nice case it's difficult to understand the minor saving you get by going cheap.
