I got this from Amazon. It took forever to arrive from china, but for $13 shipped, well worth it. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JYPPK7U/..._M3T1_ST1_dp_1

I don't see how the ir blaster would work with that bumper.

Lol. It won't. But for someone like me who has never used the ir it doesn't matter.

I'm planning on getting this and a slickwrap skin, since the bumper does nothing to protect the metal surface.

Red and Gold
Heres the red and the gold on gunmetal. If the red looks a little pinkish its because it is. I didn't see it on OP's photos because he doesn't have a picture from that particular angle but mine are from LoveMei and has the words on the left side of the frame. It feels like the lettering is debossed so I think it might be acid etched. Kinda tacky and might be an issue with some of you.

How do these bumpers feel in the hand? Does it feel grippier or more slick?
What would you say are the protective qualities of the case? Or is it purely aesthetic?

Its anodized aluminum, so it feels like about the same grippiness as stock. To me it feels like its mostly aesthetic, the only thing i see it protecting is the machined edge between the sides and the screen, which i probably put a few scratches in to while putting the bumper on so...mostly aesthetic.

How much does it affect the signal with WiFi or your data?
