    I am pretty displeased with the company. While I respect that they are trying to work the kinks out - the situation has been terrible. I ordered very early (and paid to boot). Then I get an email that reminded me of something out of Alice in Wonderland. Basically stating that those who ordered after me would get their cases earlier than expected but those that ordered early would be delayed due to ramping up production. WTF???? So... ok, I can be patient.

    Then the next email series of emails with one delay after another and no clear idea of when my case may ship.

    Nice cases but this is not the kind of company I want to deal with, personally.

    Hmm I only pre-ordered mine last nite but I'm definitely not expecting anything soon of this is how they treat people!

    I'll give it a couple weeks then get something else. Perhaps just pop back on the site in a couple months to see if it looks like anythings actually happening.

    I also pre-ordered the black on black but wasn't too sure about the one with the carbon fiber back. I searched for pics of it but couldn't not find any. Did you see any that showed the carbon fiber back?

    I think they have been keeping people up to date quite well. There are some really good reviews on some of their other products. With the antinna issues and all I'm happy to wait. If your expecting to order and get in the next week or two... I think you are better off looking elsewhere.

    Go to this URL, there is a slide show on the upper part of the screen. They show a pink case with the carbon fiber back.

    Still, for now it's the only idea we have of what the carbon back will look like.

    eBay is a prime example of "you get what you pay for" If it's quality and it's on eBay it's the same price everywhere else... If it's dirt cheap....more than likely its shipping from china.

    Hi Danny, our precious :iphone4vert: is made in China, mainly in e-bay the guy Many are ABC (american born chinese) buy and sell from the wholesale market in south of china … where you just find crappy products for the local market and banana country … serious manufacturer don’t give them the goods

    But in that kind of place they sell everything to everybody , most of the products are copy … one trend now is copy : Incase or Incipio or dome sticker … only e-bay can stop them one day but yet as they win money they close their eyes on this business

    China can assemble great products...... Also manufacture the parts.... But it is really sad to see the potential and yet china wholesellers mostly copy someones design because it's cheap/easy. eBay is making it's money so they aren't going to stop it. I just choose to buy quality products elsewhere. (not to paint all of china as scammers/copycat product builders... But unfortunately eBay is home to 99% of them)
