Best Apple Bumper Alternative?
Hey guys just ordered this case for less than $10 with shipping. I will post pics when it comes in I was informed by a guy on the macrumors forums so guess we will see if these are any good.

Check out the SGP Neo Hybrid EX series. They come in tons of colors and look real nice. I would buy one, but like the original Apple Bumper, there will be problems connecting 3rd party cables.

I ordered one of these yesterday in white. Will report back once I get it. I have to say though it looks pretty legit!

Looks like some folks over at macrumors forums have gotten theirs in, even have some pics up. I gotta say they look pretty authentic but they do mention they are not quite exactly built like the apple ones. For 10 bucks though it seems like a deal Can't wait to get mine somebody posted an orange one they ordered and it looks sick.

Ordered mine the 20th got them today. Pink and white. Packing looks original at first glance, but you can tell it's not by the apple logo being not as good quality and the paper isn't as thick (packaging that is). They look/fit very well, just as good as my genuine black bumper. The white silicon is a little yellowish compared to the white harder/shinier plastic. I dont know if this is true for apples genuine bumper but does not look bad, and not that noticeable.
Pics below, taken with iPhone 4 (HDR) the difference between the packaging is seen by the left is the one from ebay and right is original from apple.
The silver from the buttons is shown on the inside of the case, where as on the black original from apple it is black.
Other than that, very good deal for less than half the price of the original. Biggest downside is waiting the shipping time from hong kong.
