    Well after over a month of waiting I finally received my Bump bumper from www.bumpnz.com. I must say I'm incredibly disappointed in it, and find it to be nowhere near worth the $20 price. The build quality is quite bad, worse than the dx.com bumper I bought for a couple bucks. The fit is loose and the buttons are subpar. The seam between the two types of plastic is very rough. About the only positive thing it has going for it is the fact that it's slightly thinner than the bumper I got from dx.com. I had such high hopes for this bumper and I cannot express enough how let down I am. Still trying to decide whether it's worth trying to get a refund, pretty sure it would be expensive to ship this thing back to New Zealand. Unfortunately I think that's what the company is counting on.

    but it sez "bump"!
    Seriously though I'm still pretty psyched about this bumper, so can you post a couple of pix just so the rest of us can see what it looks like?
    Thanks!

    I'll try and post some pics tonight. I'm at work now and the bumper is currently sitting at home.

    I'm wondering if they send your the case from their initial run by mistake. Did you try to contact them and get it resolved"

    I emailed them over a week ago that I was interested in the case but I was concerned because someone from the Macrumors forum bought the case and the quality is not good...it's comparable to $2 Ebay bumper. They admitted they had the initial run issue but they stopped immediately and didn't sell nor ship any case. As far as the $2 Ebay bumper quality, they said that they don't understand because they never shipped any case to anyone that ordered, they asked if the forum member bought the case directly from bumpnz.com because their bumper case is suppose to be thinner that the rest.
