    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!

    That looks like the official Apple bumper. Same packaging and everything. Some foxconn workers probably pocketing a few at the end of the line and making extra $$$ on ebay.

    Yeah probable I keep wondering how some of these sellers keep getting a hold of the colored bumpers, they are probably buying them off these folks and reselling them for a huge profit :P

    Only funny thing that stands out to me is the word "Bumper" is printed in Pink and mine from Apple is printing in Black. Might be nothing but different none the less...

    Me too! I'm currently using the black one and I've covered the black plastic part with 3M Carbon Fiber vinyl which looks great, but I want the green one because I think the contrast will look great.

    Neo Hybrid EX does look nice too, and so does this one.

    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.

    I looked at these too but they always seem to be out of stock. They look really nice but I didn't realize that they are made of two pieces which might not work out that well. I'd hate to see misalignment or gaps.

    I have a Case-Mate Hula case coming today. Bumper with clear in the middle so you can still see the band. I will post a review after I use it for a bit.

    From the matte case I received, I can tell you that the two piece design is tight and offers even better protection than just a standard bumper. From what I see, there are a couple of EX models in stock (Soul Black).

    Cool, thanks. I'd like to get a white one. Like the white iPhone but don't want to fully commit

    Got it today. It's labeled as if it were OEM and is made exactly like the black bumper I received direct from Apple. The fit on this one is also a little more snug than the black Apple, which I like. However, the white rubber around the edge is not pure white like Apples' white bumper...this one has a slight yellowish cast to it. You can't really tell by the pictures I took so I'm not going to bother posting. I suppose the white rubber would end up dirty anyway so for $11.90 shipped, it'll do for me.

    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.

    Man that case does look pretty sweet. Thinking about the hybrid one with the silicone backing, all pre-order though.

    Could you put some pics?
