    Is it just me or is this thing extremely snug on all new units?

    I remember my iPhone being snug at first and easier to plug in with time - but never this tight.

    It is normal. I have experienced this on multiple iPad 2.

    It appears normal. Have four iPad 2's in the family (2 x 16GB black, 2 x 64GB white) and all have the same "snug" fitting.

    Yea, so are the buttons..
    They loosen up perfectly after some wear.

    I had the same situation with the first iPad 2 (returned it for defective display). It was so tight that I to really give it a good pull. I also notice is was starting to cut the aluminum side walls of the dock after a few times. The one I have now is much better.

    Mine was so tight I thought I was going to break her when I tried to pull out. After a few weeks of going in and out, she finally started to loosen up. Now its pretty much like throwing a hotdog down a hallway.

    We're talking about iPads, right?

    Yeah the more we are acquainted, juicing her up every night, in and out. Things have loosened up. :p

    Me too. It cutoff part of the 30-pin plug, and one side of the plug has a way harder time going in than the other. Pretty bad. My last iPad 2 didn't have this problem, infact I remember actually liking how easy it was to plug in compared to my iPhone.
