  • Alex Fiet

    I'm partial for the traditional black tie. The thrive is not about about glitz and glamor.it is about pure functionality. And black seems to be the most sensible color

  • http://none Andrew Porter

    I am choosing the Black Tie, solely based on videos.
    I would prefer the silver but the video was ok. The Black Tie reminds me of the old music spin reels or the not so old but very distant VHS tapes. Blue was pretty cool for the mobey dick theme, but Black Tie was the best.

  • bk w/ bloody sauce

    Lavender Bliss is a really nice color..cool video also...congrats to the winner!

  • CoreyG

    Silver Sky looks awesome!

  • Kenneth Cummins

    Hmmm... Tough call. I would prefer the Black Tie or Silver Sky, since I am something of a classic minimalist. But let's be real, this will likely be mostly for the wife and/or kids. So I'm actually thinking the Lavender Bliss (it's pale enough to not be garish, and my daughter *loves* purple of any hue).

    Lavender Bliss for Family Harmony.
