I contacted the owner about the poor (loose) fit of the cover plate.
And told him of how I modified it to stiffen it up on the XPS3.
Since I don't have one of the older units to compare.
The new design is basically internal but the manufacturer was interested in my modification once the owner forwarded my review.
I had listed several ideas for improvement for the cover plate.
The manufacture requested pictures of my modifications.
Maybe the cover plate may not be so loose with the final release.
It will be interesting to see what if anything they adopt.
