I'm going to copy Loopy's great formatting since I feel it's great for reviewing without being conspicuous.
Slip Maxi (M)
Smell: I like to smell my diapers when I first open them, just like with video games. I reallly don't know what's so intoxicating about smelling the smell of mass produced goods but just like a lot of other people, I do it too . The Slip Maxi's have a pleasant smell of plastic and what i'd imagine is the cloth insides. My sense of smell isn't as sharp as it used to be but it is a welcome change from Tranquility ATN's very chemical/institution smell.
Look and Feel: As I slid out my first Slip Maxi, I recalled a thread or two talking about how it has a styrofoamy feel or something. I have absolutely no idea what they were on about as these feel like normal plastic. Perhaps they were talking about the ones that use cloth backing. The Slip Maxi plastic is very nice and pleasant feeling. It feels soft like ABU's Cushies but feels thick enough so that I'm not exactly worried about wetness leaking directly through it.
The top of the diaper has a landing plastic tape landing zone with purple squares for tape placement and with some styled purple dotted design that isn't gaudy or ugly looking that goes along the middle of the diaper. It's not exactly appealing either but it is not what i'd call "Aesthetically Compromised" XD
When opening up the diaper, I noticed that it does not lay flat which excited me greatly! A lot of adult diapers you can fold completely flat. These kinda round off and stick up a little bit meaning that they are anatomically designed! Excellent!
Sound: The landing zone crinkles lightly, not loudly. These diapers are quiet but still need boxers or underwear to deafen/silence the plastic crinkling for a stealthy wear.
Comfort and Fit: My size is bigger than a small but not a full medium. Most mediums I wear I have to double tape or tape a little differently. These Slip Maxis fit a little loose but fit much better than average diapers. I usually run a finger underneath my diaper after I tape it on to get an idea of how well the leak guards are making contact with my skin. The Slip Maxis may run a little loose like a comfortable piece of clothing but I find that the leak guards don't make as great contact as i'd like but I think they do a good job. The diaper is soft but less soft than say a Bambino but because the fit is so good, I'd say overall these diapers feel better worn and i'd imagine these wouldn't be so cumbersome for wear during daily activities.
Performance: These diapers aren't the thickest diapers and I feel that Bambinos hold that crown...
... but these diapers will not disappoint. Flooding, short bursts, dribble, these things take them with ease. Rather than be stupidly absorbent via thickness like a brute, these diapers are probably smart diapers. Wetness disperses through the diaper evenly and quickly which allow it to be a thinner diaper while still having a pretty competitive capacity. With enough wettings these things swell pretty big but again, still under that of a Bambino.
Value: I got a case of 63 for about $75-77 USD, shipped, to the U.S. The cost of these diapers are about $10 more than a Bambino but you also get more (about 10-20) more diapers per case. These are pricey when shipping is a considering factor.
Conclusion: Though I am hard pressed between admitting which is the better of the two diapers, the ABDL Benchmark diaper, Bambino or this Slip Maxi.
Honestly i've been primarily wearing Bambinos at least once a day. I began searching for a new diaper that I could realistically buy without sacrificing Performance, Aesthetic, and Quantity and I may have to seriously consider buying these on a more frequent basis. I have absolutely fallen in love! Because these diapers are so thin when dry, I confidently went out to a quick night shopping run without checking myself in the mirror 20x times to see how obvious it is. These diapers are easily concealable and don't make you waddle when you walk because of how thin they are, without sacrificing absorbency/protection. Furthermore, because of the anatomical design, these diapers will not wear you down while going on about your daily activities.
Being that these diapers are designed by professionals who aren't catering to Adult Babies, they implemented very good design choices that have absolutely won me over. I feel these diapers are extraordinary for those who are incontinent, bedwetters, or just active AB/DL's.
You Europeans have got an absolutely brilliant and stellar diaper and I'll speak for all of us when I say that you guys on the other side of the pond are absolutely lucky to have such a great product available to you! *jealous* Perhaps I need to check out Molicare!
European Diapers I've tried so far:

TXXX Slip Maxi (M) - I have not included the manufacturer name because it may lead to a search of this review!
