    Is it worth the 149 dollar price tag?

    I want the silver one for my White IP5.

    I ordered one a couple weeks ago and I'll post a review after I receive it, which should be the end of the November.

    They just closed preorders and they will now be available for order without an invite beginning on Novemeber 19th, but they won't ship until December after all the preorders have shipped. The first edition (gunmetal) is no longer available. The black and silver are the only two options now and they are $139.95, but you can get 10% off by subscribing to their newsletter.

    You'll get to see exactly what it looks like then. I have a white iPhone 5 and I ordered the silver case. :)

    Wow! That's a really nice looking case. My Black Ops on iPhone 4 was worth every cent. Makes me want to upgrade now just for the case.

    Looks like shipment of my Silver Sector is still 'Processing'. We had to acknowledge that we understood shipments would begin no earlier than the 15th.

    I hope I don't regret not getting the gun metal. Silver better look great on my black iPhone or wife is going to kick me twice. Once for the price and second time for bad color selection!

    I very much prefer silver. It was a bonus that it was a little cheaper. But if you don't like it, I think I remember someone saying they have a 30-day money back guarantee.

    I am going to admit this: I am an idiot.

    So yesterday morning I get an email from Element saying that the pre-order is closed but they are giving me one last chance to order before the Sector goes on sale tro the general public on Monday.

    So I add it to my cart but don't check out.

    Last night I get an email saying "did you forget something" and a box to click to "complete order". So I click it and it brings up a box saying cookies aren't enabled (which was not true). I was on my laptop and I had origianlly added the case to my cart on my iMac. So I guess I cleared the cookies and then when I tried to add it back to my cart it said it was sold out.

    Bottom line is I can't order. Thing is I wanted the silver one so I guess that isn't the first edition anyway. The silver will be on sale on Monday but would just have to wait longer. I don't think there is any difference between the pre-order silver and the silver you can order starting Monday -- is there?

    I am I dumb?

    In any case, now I'll just wait for Mindi's review and then decide. Maybe I am not suppose to have this case. O_o

    No way. It's an easy mistake and it's a tough decision since it's so expensive. It's the same silver model; you'll just have to wait a little longer now. I don't believe in fate. I believe free will, chance and coincidence. :)

    Thanks Mindi. Patience is a virtue. Guess I have no choice now. :)

    Can't wait to see pics of your case and hear all about it!

    It's not the return I'm worried about. Not having ordered the gun metal prevents exchanging that for silver if I waiver on color. As you can't go the other way given its limited edition nature.

    Talk about silliness. It's just a phone case for crying out loud. :)

    Oh for crying out loud...

    I got another email from Element Case reminding me again that my item was in my cart and they even offered me a 10% discount code to check out. Don't they know that I messed things up and my cart is empty and I can't re-add the case to my cart. Dummies.

    Element: Leave Zanthe alone. I'll get the case eventually IF it gets good reviews from people I trust here! :mad:
