What do customers think about the LifeProof iPhone 5 case?

What I see is that user's experiences are somewhat mixed, although they appreciate the low weight of the housing.
And that for some people it takes time to open the plugs for the ports, while others benefit from it taking videos at the bottom of the pool and appreciate that the housing is less bulky as some other cases.

Customer Satisfaction

At Amazon this case rates at the time of writing, about 2.8 out of 5 meaning that there are about same number of customers satisfied / dissatisfied. Those that rated it less usually cited that it took some time to get used to the housing. Mind that people are different and so may experience cases differently.
