I received my NGP case from Incipio earlier this week. I've had a couple of days use, and I can say it is the best case I've purchased for the 920.
Initially I was disappointed in the case. When I received the case the thin bottom piece curved up, instead of in. To solve the issue, I took the case off of the phone, placed a towel over it and pressed down with a warm (not too hot) iron. This seems to have fixed the problem and it fits like a glove now.
Unlike other TPU soft cases, the NGP case fits very snug. There is little give, which can make it a pain to take it off but it feels more like a hard case once it is on, rather than a mushy silicone case. I also prefer it over hard shell cases because it protects the bottom and top of the phone. The headphone jack fits my Sol Republic Tracks HD headphones just fine. The case does negatively effect photos taken with a flash, causing a blur effect, but I rarely use flash so this was not an issue for me. Also, for those with a creaky Lumia, this will help alleviate that issue.
While I will definitely switch to the Nokia brand case when it arrives, this one works quite well.
The case is available at Incipio's website for $19.99 in black, translucent pink, and translucent mercury. The attached photos are translucent mercury. Nokia Lumia 920 NGP Impact Resistant Case

Just got my black case. Pretty much exactly what I expected. A couple of first impressions:
The case obviously makes the phone feel a little bigger, but it is actually easier to hold with one hand because the case is a litte more grippy and you can get some extra purchase on the cutout around the Carl-zeiss logo.
Buttons are actually easier to press with the case on, in fact it feels easier to press the camera button without getting movement.
All speakers, microphones, and jack inputs are easily accessible with the case in place.
The case sticks out about 1/2 mm beyond the screen, so if you lay the phone on a flat surface, only the case is touching. This should really help protect the screen.
The Lumia 920 is such a beautiful phone, that I am hesitant to put any case on it. I know that there are cases that offer more protection, but I find that this case is the perfect compromise because it preserves the overall aesthetic of the phone while offering almost fool-proof protection. The material of the NGP case is firm, but does offer shock protection (when I had this case on my iphone 3gs, there were several occassions where I jumped out of my truck with my phone sitting on my lap, watched the phone bounce across the parking lot, and then picked it up to find it unscathed).
I'll post some picture later. It's sort of tough to take pictures of your Lumia 920 when your best camera is your Lumia 920 ;)

Here's some photos of the black case on my black Lumia 920. The case offers good protection while maintaining the aesthetic of the phone and not adding too much bulk. You can see that the headphone jack and noise-cancelling mic is fully exposed at the top of the phone. The micro USB port and speakers are exposed at the bottom. The only thing that keeps this case from being totally perfect is the fact that it doesn't quite cover all the way up to the edge of the screen on the top and the bottom. See last pic. So, not totally perfect, but 99% of the way there. I'm overall very happy with the case!

After using this case for a few weeks, I must say that I am still very pleased. It makes the phone much more grippy and doesn't add too much bulk. I still can't comment on the impact resistance because I haven't dropped my phone since I put on the case.

I also experience no camera flash issues with the cc-1043, though that could have been due to the translucent color of my NGP case.
