Wow this is as bad as PC guys talking about stereo speakers for a PC rig, “you paid $100 bucks for those speakers?”. “Man I got mine for $10 bucks.” PC guys for the most part are cheapos like many of you posting.

So, ordered the product after seeing it on iLounge and it showed up 2 days later (good sign)I knew I was taking a shot but what the heck…

So is it worth it, YES! Looks sharp and gives a bit of heft to my nano that I like. It was also fun to build it (don’t forget to keep the tool)...

My office mates flipped (all guys) C6 plan on some more orders…also works in my Bose…to guy who wants to build his own, you kill me!

cyber, i agree with the YES/WOW factor…this is a case that definately needs to be held, and seen in person. My only worry was that i had to remove the case to dock to my speakers and universersal dock. But with all the spacers removed on the dock, the C6 goes in with no probs.

Note to speakers users…so far in testing…C6 docks with BOSE, but not with inMotion

I think it looks sweet. Carbon fiber is beautiful, especially if appreciate it from a materials science perspective. Too bad ‘The Fast and the Furious’ made everybody associate it with crappy 85hp Honda Civics.

Side protection would be nice but I’d definitely shell out $39 for the nano case.
Very cool.

I totally agree with cyber and neo on this one. For one, these guys don’t know much about carbon fiber, and just reading about it doesn’t do justice. If they’ve ever felt pre-clearcoated carbon fiber before, it feels great. I’ve been exposed to carbon fiber rolls before (like large toilet paper rolls) used to carbon layer car bonnets (hoods) in case you can’t find a company that sells a CF hood for your car, and whoa boy, its expensive stuff and not easy to work with. You can purchase a 3mm sheet of CF just a bit larger than sheet of 8.5x11 paper and it would cost $120.

The C6 CF cases are for fans of CF and some who are looking for a certain look or to complete a theme (CF dashboard trim, etc).

I’m placing my order to Jason at C6 this Saturday.

... also,

I totally agree with count macula’s comment. The Fast and the Furious (more like the ‘Rice and the Riddiculous) movies series associated CF with dungy little Civics.

CF has usually been associated with true sports cars/exotic cars, now FnF associates it with grocery-getters.
