    Are you serious?

    You're buying a $200 case that is manufactured in California from a vendor in the Far East for $100?

    Here's a hint. It's not real. The pictures you see on the site are ripped from the official site. The counterfeit case you will eventually get normally retails for about $20-30 depending on the vendor. The backplate is total rubber crap. The holster is flimsy. The case is painted cast zinc.

    I did a comparison review a while back, have a look for it.

    Or you can decide that I must just be crazy and of course it's the real thing or that they must be selling a super high quality fake if it costs $100.

    Seriously. At $100 you're within $40 of the standard model of the real thing. If you want one that bad just save up an extra $40. The "black ops" accessories included with the fakes are pathetic at best and specifying the black ops version pretty much guarantees you will get one of the lower quality fakes at that since those are the ones in that model. If you have to have a fake, get a standard version or one in the black and amber without the accessories.

    By all means them, post some pictures. Especially of the backplate.

    For hat it's worth, luxurycase.co.uk isn't on Element Case's list of authorized resellers, that being said, you most likely bought a fake.

    If that was your intention then fine, success, though you probably could have gotten it cheaper from aliexpress at roughly $20 USD or so.

    So you'd really rather pay 4-5x the amount for the exact same case to purchase it from the uk seller? It's not like the uk company has a bunch of Brits machining counterfeit cases. They just buy them in bulk from the same guys selling them on aliexpress, which is really more or less an eBay for cheap Chinese goods. Or perhaps they have a mythical secret source that only sells to them? Look at the cases. Oh wait. You can't. Because luxury case uses stolen images of the real items on its site, giving you no idea of the quality you'll get, and the inflated prices give some suckers the idea that they might be getting a steal on the real thing. I'll give you this, it's a slick looking site.

    Actually it looks like both of the websites are from Hong Kong and both companies are in Kowloon Hong Kong, so unless you buy from one of the Element Case authorized resellers, you're going to be buying a fake, which you can buy for less then $20.00 from any Hong Kong site.
