    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    - Price compared to original Apple battery.
    - Fits fine.
    - Works (!) and seems to hold power as good as the original.
    - Sufficiently wrapped in bubble plastic and cardboard box lined with foam. Surrounding the battery and antistatic bag.

    Cons:

    - Delivered with a bend corner (dx.com not contacted regarding this, but I am sure that they would offer a replacement or a discount).
    - Not same build quality as Apple original.
    - Fits fine, but not as good as original.
    - Foot different color and material than original, seems to be more slippery.

    OtherThoughts:

    Better product than another unoriginal battery purchased in Germany for roughly the same price. The other battery purchased (in Germany) wobbled and made the MacBook wobble as well. This one doesn't.

    Bottomline:

    Great product, that fully lives up to what I expected taking the price in consideration. Build quality could certainly be both better and worse.
