|I didn't want to mention it till I'd had the case for a while, but I haven't had any problems with the Visor turning on. The cover protects the handheld without hitting the buttons. I LOVE THIS CASE!
|There is a whole bunch to like about this case. First, since it is custom made for the Visor, it fits great and it is very well constructed. Access to the stylus is easy, the IR port is exposed, there is a hole for the microphone, and the buttons are easy to get to. There is a cutout for the power button and on my case, it looks like it is obstructed but it isn't. The flap that covers the screen is rigid so there is some protection and the back of the case is padded. As a matter of fact, since the Visor slides in from the top, there is good protection for it all the way around.
The zipper around the bottom of the case allows you to HotSync it without removing it, which is a real plus. You don't just drop it in the cradle anymore, but once you figure out how to put it in, its no problem. It is made of real leather and looks and feels (and smells) great.
I didn't buy the version with the belt clip. There is no peg on the back so I can't just buy a belt clip later. That's fine with me since I carry my Visor in my pocket and didn't want a peg jabbing me in the leg or chest.
Things I don't like about the case are minor, very minor. The toggle on the zipper is too big and it dangles free. There are zippers with smaller toggles that lock into place when you push them down. That would be nice. Also, the cover closes with Velcro and I don't like Velcro. Opening it makes a little bit of noise and eventually the Velcro will wear out I'm sure. There is a hole in the back so you can access the reset button but I really don't think it is necessary. Unzipping it will expose the reset button and really, how often do you need access to that? Minor as I said.
One thing I would like to see EB Cases add is the option to monogram the case. There is a little metal logo on the front that could be engraved if the logo wasn't already in place.
BTW, the case is also available in burgundy.
