    Bah, sparkly stones are corny. I'm waiting for a stainless steel casing. Or aluminum. Or titanium.

    Or copper. That would look great, and wouldn't cost too much.

    Chrome or chromish? Metal or plastic with metallic lacque? Plastic looks like crap in the first place, and then the metallic paint rubs off. Even crappier.
    I want actual metal. [​IMG]

    at least it isn't as bad as the 24k gold faceplate for the PSP, now that was an ugly turd. Imo.. the gold is worth a lot yes, but when you make it into something ugly it should be melted back down and made into something else -> try again.

    anyway these would be ok for $10/ea if they were that but $385 keep dreaming.. looks like a grade4 art project.
