    Default M1330: Crimson Red or Tuxedo Black?

    I ordered my m1330 a long time ago(july 18), and TIL NOW they tell me they dont offer LED in mexico, ah well, CCFL for me it is then.

    Anyway, i ordered tuxedo black.. but after seeing a video in youtube i really liked how the red looked.. SO...

    Could you give me opinions about which one is better? Is the red still causing delay? What kind of finish is the red and the black painting, the same? etc.


    Oh and if anyone has homemade pictures of the crimson red that'd be nice to see it in ambient light. Thanks for your help! If i change it, it has to be done asap to avoid further delay.

    Crimson red most definitely. It's beautiful. Both of them are the same micro-satin material, which is pretty nice. It's slightly rubbery and yet it's not
    If I can find my cam I'll take some pics tomorrow.

    Oh i wondered that because in pictures the crimson red looks glossy.. which would be deadly in my hands because i scratch everything lol..

    Not too sure about that. I think that the black will probably ship out faster since it's easier to paint

    RED RED RED RED RED...not glossy and any delay will be reflected when you order (it will show a lead time by the coice)

    It garnishes a ton of compliments.
