    I found that you could buy an open-box, excellent condition Milanese Loop on Best Buy for $129.99. I was a bit hesitant on buying an open-box item, but their "excellent condition" does say it's in brand-new condition.

    Does anyone know of a cheaper place to get a Milanese Loop?

    That looks really intriguing. Are there any issues with the bands fitting perfectly with the watch? Like are there any protrusions on the sides?

    Mine seems to take more effort to mount, but not enough to care.

    I received the Milanese Loop from JeTech and it looks and feels fairly good, although maybe a little bit cheap feeling (like lower-quality steel?). I will have to visit the Apple Store soon to compare it with a genuine ML though just to be sure. The design is very similar to that of Apple's, but it is slightly different, which you can tell from the photos. It'd be incredibly difficult though to tell from a distance and basically impossible to tell that it's fake if you show it to someone who does not know the intricacy of Apple's Milanese Loop stainless design. They'd just think you got it straight from Apple (which I guess is the purpose of third party bands).

    I saw a few complaints about JeTech products, and the comments were inline with yours.
