    Where did you buy that?! I've been looking for one!

    Is it glass? Plastic?

    How much was it?

    Quality build?

    Does it come with the housing?

    I got this from swbox.com (sp?)

    It is plastic but strong quality and metal connectors on bottom instead of plastics.

    It was for $18 plus you have different shipping options..you can do the chepest way which takes 5-15 days or you can do fedex or ups and thats 3-5days.

    This comes with just the black plate. not screws or anything..you have to have your own screw driver or you can buy it from them.

    I really don't like these clear back plates :p I just think they look quite unprofessional :p But I guess that's just me!

    I really wish it was glass!!! If I do a clear back cover I will make sure to have on of my artistic friends do something really cool on the battery or something.

    Looks nice, but shipping is just too much. Anyone know of a better deal?

    I've been waiting to see someone post some pics of this backplate. Looks very cool! I may pick up one now. At around $20, it's actually one of the more expensive accessories on swbox, haha.

    Edit: btw OP, I notice some western blots in your photos. Are you a chemist?

    Very cool. The only issue I think there may be is dust. It would absolutely drive me nuts to see dust in there and it would be a hassle to take it out to clean everytime (for me).

    Shipping is about $18 for one but if you buy 10 then shipping is $32. If we have enough people we can do a group buy.
