Don't mean to kick the dead horse here, but I own a previous model. I'm attaching some pics of it that I took earlier. For the $20 I paid for it, it is an amazing speaker. I doubt that I can get a better value in retail. But I wouldn't go for this one, mainly because I can't understand why it is almost twice the price of the older model - if it's just for the case, I'm absolutely fine with the plastic one.
