    Ok so i received my brushed steel skin today in the mail today and it looks better than i expected.

    First of all they are a little thinner than the carbon fibre texture skins that you can buy from various places.They are simple to place on like the other skins and can be taken off and re-applied.The brushed steel affect is coated with a thin shiny layer to protect it from being scratched and the cut out's are perfectly cut to align with the camera, flash and apple logo.

    These make the phone look amazing, much better than the carbon skin i have just taken off today.It will offer protection from scratches like the other skins but will not protect from a hard fall or bump.

    Sorry about the pictures i had to take from my imac because my point and shoot is not working.

    Skins available from this ebay shop http://shop.ebay.co.uk/skin-itskins/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p4340

    Well its neither.Its thinner than a carbon skin etc but it can be taken off and re-applied so long as you save the paper it came on.

    Really suprised how good it looks to be honest!!

    Edit: saw that you seen the material :)

    Took me a minute to realize why it was so familiar. I had a case like that for my iPod Video a few years back.
