Has anyone had any experience with the following covers? It's really hard to tell what the colours will look like in your hands as opposed to a computer screen so if anyone has also had experience with a red one in particular for any of these covers, what kind of red is it?

If you run over to the Oberon picture thread, on the last page, someone JUST posted pics of her new Red Paisley and the color is pretty true to the actual color...only a slight hair darker, but not much.

I love the red of the paisley cover. Anyone know if the other covers I mentioned (or one I didn't) come close to that colour? I have been entertaining the idea of an Oberon, but keep flopping back and forth with my decision to get one or to get something cheaper.

I have the Oberon red Ginkgo and I would say it is more of a deep red.  Heinz ketchup red does fit it perfectly.   It is very close to the Amazon cover burgundy red.  It is a beautiful, rich red and spoiled me for any other reds.

I have a m-edge in red and it is not as deep.   If you have a dog - it is the same red as a kong.  It is an OK red - not too bright but not washed out either and more of what I think of as a true red.

I am not familiar with any of the other red cases.

I have the Oberon red paisley, too.  Love it!  Yep, it's a ketchup color, the tooling is perfect.  
You know how if you paint 1 room in your house it makes the others look bad?  Well, now my iPad needs an Oberon!!!!

This is the Oberon Hummingbird - the same red as the paisley. The red color on the picture is precisely as the cover. Beautiful :D

Although I can't speak for the others, here is a photo comparing the microfiber red (as used with the Executive Jacket) and the patent leather red GO! jacket.

Because the patent leather GO! Jacket is so shiny, it is hard to get a good photo that shows the color. I took this outside in the shade, so the lighting is natural and the colors are as accurate as possible.

I have the red M-Edge Executive jacket that I purchased for my K3 (after a fiasco with the Amazon non-lighted cover) but then was tempted by all the Oberon pics and ended up getting the Celtic Hounds in Wine.  The red is a true red and I really enjoyed how it felt when I was holding it.  Just comfortable and I felt my K3 was well protected.  Guess I should put it up for sale since I doubt my K3 will ever leave the Oberon.

I like the patent leather red best, but I could be a bit biased. :)
