More Pictures - Microsoft Xbox
One thing to notice especially is the unique texture left on the Xbox after being serviced. In comparison to both the controller and iPod, the Xbox seemed rather textured; perhaps this is a result of the chemicals contained in the paints and dies used in ColorWare's coloring process. Whether this texturing is deliberate or not, it most certainly gave the Xbox an extremely unique and identified look, even though it remains hardly noticeable unless you're face-to-face with the case.
As you can see, the Envy Green remains beautiful in both low-lit and bright-light situations. Also notable is the replacement of the original Xbox logo (located on the top of the Xbox); ColorWare took the time to re-print, paint, and gloss the letters and it looks a lot better than it originally had.
To perform the coloring service on the Xbox, ColorWare had to remove the front encasing from the Xbox, therefore voiding your existing warrantee, and thus replacing it with their very own. Imperfections were scarce, and the overall look was stunning. The Envy Green was chosen to match the general Xbox theme.
Taking an even closer look at the painting service, one can notice the smoothness maintained throughout the layers, by examining the following close-up shot.
To compliment the newly-colored Xbox we had sent in, we asked ColorWare to also color one of our Microsoft S-type controllers in order to allow our readers to get a broader exposure the unique pallet colors. We had chosen 'Candy Apple Red' as our new look of choice, and were more than pleasantly surprised - once again.
A once-sticky, peeling sticker on the back of the controller alerts us of tampering. To save themselves arduous taping jobs, ColorWare wisely removed the casing (both front and back) from the controller, and had them painted individually (perhaps dual-color schemes can be expected in the future?)
Whether it is due to the color itself or general application of gloss, very faint fingerprints were recognizable throughout the controller after a moderate amount of use. Do not be alarmed, these fingerprints truly are faint and by no means are noticeable even when handling the controller personally; you must look very closely.
