Too Big, Yet Too Small
The case is pretty. However... It's too big to fit in your pocket, but it's too small to be very useful. I used a Classic-sized Franklin planner for 5 years before making the switch to Handspring. The case was too small to carry extra papers around (or the bills I just mailed). I ended up buying a new Franklin binder with Palm III attachment to carry around. It's just right!

Versatile and portable
I bought my bi-fold--really a tri-fold last month (May) and have enjoyed it so far. I like haing the pad and pen to write a quick note, and the stylish cover dresses up the Visor. Its also smaller than my old schedule book, and holds lots of stuff. The business card window is a tad small, and the velcro is LOUD, but that's being pretty picky--overall, a good product. Now, why won't Handspring sell the Visor with a useable stylus and the case?

No zipper
Good, but I would prefer with zipper to ensure nothing slips out. And what about a small section with zipper for change?

Good, but some problems
An OK case, but a few problems (I have had mine since January): 1. Slots are too small for business cards- I had to cut one down to fit in the window, and there is no way a standard card fits in the cutouts; 2. Stylus holder eventually loosens and any josteling at all and the stylus fall out; 3. After 6 months, the case is wearing- lots of white showing on the high-wear edges; 4. The wrong pen in the pen holder can push on your power button when the case is closed (hey, thats why I have short battery life sometimes); 3 out of 5 stars- but hey, have you ever seen a Visor product that Visrcentral didn't like?

To thick for me
I bought it but I thought it was to thick. I want something to repalce a wallet but is still thin enough to fit nicely in my pants pocket without looking like I have a bomb straped to me. I returned the bifold case the next day and bought the Slim Leather Case which I love!!! It really is much slimmer, much cheaper, and still looks pretty cool!!!

Wallet Replacement
My primary use was to consolidate the Visor and my wallet in one (small) package. This did the trick. My leather is nice and worn now, so I like it better than when I first got it. I have my Autopoint Stylus+ in the pen holder, a deluxe sylus in the sylus holder and the deluxe sylus in the Visor. A few notes of caution. The staple on the notepad will cause rubbing on the top plastic on the Visor. I put a piece of tape on it. Also the leather on the bottom of the notepad area will cause the paint to rub off the up/down buttons. Other than that, no problems.

good wallet replacement
I just bought mine last week (06/11) and have used it to replace my wallet. I find it's elegant, and although larger than my wallet, it's much smaller than the Daytimer I used to carry around. I put my Stylus+ in the pen holder (not the stylus holder) and am very happy with it. Usage wise, I use it to transport + protect my Visor, and can carry it in my jacket pocket (definitely not a shirt pocket thing)! At work or at home, I simply remove it from the "reverse snap lid", and HotSync, etc. Yes, a bit pricey, but I can live with that.

costly but good
I was looking for a wallet replacement. After looking at many picutures of other cases, this is the one I choose. Be advised, you won't be able to put this wallet/cover in your pocket for as in it is too thick. You can put money behind the credit cards but not in full length bills. You have to fold your bills in half. This seems to be nit picking but considering the price would think they would accomendate the extra 1/4 ". I would not recommend adding the extra pad behind the credit cards in order to make the case thinner.

I really like this case.
I bought this case in March'00. It replaced the wallet in my purse. Everything fits very nicely. I've had no problems with the built-in cover that holds the Visor in the case - very snug, and I don't have to attach velcro to the back of my Visor. There is only one draw-back that everyone should consider: since I carry my Visor around at work alot, I don't really want to carry my wallet everywhere. By it being in my hand, I may put it down somewhere, and leave it. To get around this I also have a Slipper Visor case w/clip. Slipper case attached to me at work, and the Bi-fold case when work is over. I'm happy.

Has all the features that I was looking for.
I like having a pad of paper to use and I especially like the way that the visor snaps in and out.
