    not my website/company obviously.

    www.materialsix.com

    Three wood choices with more to possibly come. Sadly no flash diffuser, (just a layer of vinyl) but in an email the company said it doesn't affect camera performance. (who knows)

    Someone try them out.

    those are a rip off! Grovemade's are much nicer (real wood Bamboo if you want something unique that's what I'd get. it's been out a while too! lots of other company's making wood to.

    Grove is nice but they make a case. This is the actual back piece made of wood so it adds no thickness. I like it but its not something everyone will like.

    The Grove cases look freaking nice but are a little pricey. :(

    I actually like the look. Too bad they want $90.

    worse than the company that set these prices....is the consumer willing to pay those prices.

    I got mine a lot cheaper than that.

    I got one very similar from http://www.woodbacks.com. Their prices were $5 for the backing if you have the bumper already and $20 if you don't.

    I don't know why anyone would pay a lot more than that.

    THat is a nice alternative, however, it is still a piece that is applied to the galss back of your phone. and adds thickness, even if it is very thin. Also, I imagine it will not look great without a bumper. The Material6 backs is a complete back piece that replaces the current glass piece and keeps the thickness the same, plus I would be if you like your phone naked, it looks much better IMO.

    Still, quite a difference in price, so if you use a bumper always anyway...

    I contacted these guys and still no reply. I am pretty much done with any aluminum case and am looking for something diffrent....as for the price, you get what you pay for. Now my only problem is the diffuser, that is pretty much all that is stopping me from buying this case.

    You may be able to buy a diffuser and put it on if it doesn't come with it, has anyone verified that it doesn't come with it?
