I received the meike grip in 5 days. Everything works like it should with no shutter lag and the auto focus on the grip works great too. No issues what's so ever.

I just read this morning some guy from some photo blog saying his Meike worked fine on his D7000. He bought a Nikon grip that turned out to be a complete fake.... labelled Nikon on the grip and box, serial number, warranty card and all.
Do the dial adjustments turn the same way as on the camera? or reversed?
Apparently some of these grips on ebay have it backwards.
And shutter lag is something that may occur later. If at all.
They aren't built with durability in mind... but if they work, they work.
Can't beat the price.

The buttons on the grip work the same way as the body if you change the direction of the buttons in the menu they change in the body and grip together. the shutter button is simply a make or break switch, it only makes a circuit it cant slow down the electricity.

It's not the button.... it's the electronics.

I don't think there are any electronics in the grip simply flexy wiring connecting the grip through the multi connector to the body the electronics are in the body. but you may know better.
