Looks & Feels Fantastic But Let Down by Design
on 25 March 2009
Looks good and feels even better. This luxurious case is severely let down by the Sony's styling. The ebook is held in place with a plastic strip. This plastic strip clips into two slots in the leather by two fragile smaller plastic pegs. I had read the reviews on Amazon and elsewhere saying how fragile the case was and I didn't really pay attention. I thought that there was no way that the case could be as impractical as others were making out. Now I truly wish that I had listened to them.
I dropped this from about a foot onto my bed without thinking such a slight fall could do any damage but apparently it was enough to snap one of the pegs which holds the plastic e-reader holder onto the leather holster. I tried gluing it but to no avail. For the price, this is a severely disappointing product; I dread to think what might have happened if I had dropped my e-reader from an even higher height onto a hard surface!!
