    Speck cases are NOT $9 and Speck even had a blurb on their website saying that none of their products were sold through Amazon. The ones that are sold there are fake. If you really want a Speck case (and with the wide range of colors, styles, and durability, they’re worth looking into), you’ll need to go to their site and expect to spend $34.95+.
