When Apple first introduced a bumper along with the iPhone 4, there was no shortage of confused reactions. It’s a case, but not a case. It will protect the sides, but not the front or back. What’s the point? Well, as we later found out, Apple likely had a good idea there were issues with the antenna and it needed a solution. Enter the bumper.

Fast forward to today and bumpers are all but commonplace when it comes to an accessory lineup for a new device, except the iPhone 5. Well, there are bumpers for the iPhone 5, but you won’t find them being made by Apple anymore. A few weeks ago I was sent a bumper, made entirely of aluminum, called the AL13.

There is no shortage of companies that make smartphone and tablet cases, especially for Apple devices.

Their Feather cases have been popular for a long time, along with the Silicrylic cases. With the Flagship Folio case for the Retina iPad (3rd and 4th gen), Incipio went high-end executive on us.

Corsair 550D

Corsair’s PC enclosures are some of the finest enclosures you can buy. The case that started it all was the Obsidian 800D –– a premium full tower beast with advanced features and a drool-worthy appearance. Since then, Corsair has added the Graphite Series, Carbide Series, and Vengeance Series cases to their stable of acclaimed enclosures. With a complete line of cases to suit a variety of tastes, performance requirements and budget, the only type of case missing was a silent case, until now. The Obsidian 550D is a premium, mid-tower case with sound isolation characteristics that rounds out Corsair’s collection of enthusiast enclosures.
