    Silver Sky. Aside from liking the old glitter on the drum-head trick, the other non-black colors are too pastel for my taste. (If they made scarlet or royal blue, the decision would have been harder.)

    Thanks for these giveaways.

    "Black Tie" for sure. Black is sleek and beautiful. You can't go wrong with Black. I'm not in to all the bright colors like that. I think the bright colors make a Phone or a tablet look cheap.

  • Daniel Richardson

    Black Tie.

    If I'm rating the videos and not the colors, then all the other ones (except the Green Apple one) seemed a little too focused on the female market for my taste. The green video seemed fairly unisex, but the color itself is a little feminine.

    Lavender Bliss (insert lengthening material)
