WOW! I had no idea this would generate this amount of interest!
I know that, during my initial testing, people expressed interested in the Pearl Silver, but specifically pointed out that it was too glossy and reflective.
That's why I wanted to hunt down a less reflective version of this color.
I ordered the sample by calling the hotline number on the back of a Pearl Silver LS sample (800-433-3222). I didn't record the date of the call, but the samples arrived with a sheet showing the request was created 15 January 2007 and as I stated, I received the samples yesterday (Monday, 22 January 2007). I guess that's one week, flat! Not too shabby...
All my samples are downstairs, and I am seriously knee-deep in graduate studies (semester #2), so any off-the-cuff comparisons to FG and DW will have to wait, as will any photos. Spare time for me now is a premium.
One more thing: Does anyone mind if I use my existing CgS as a backdrop for this testing? I am considering mounting the samples with masking tape (it shouldn't harm the surface of the CgS, should it?).
Oh--and something interesting: The "matte Pearl Silver" (which I hereby christen mPS) appears to be vertical grade (which perhaps explains why / how it cracked during shipment).
