If you're looking for a leather case, I'm fond of the Bellagio, which I've been using for a few months now. It fits well, looks great, feels good in my hand, and syncs in the case.

I find the Bellagio to be rather bulky, I don't much care for the look of it either. I know it does the job well esp. if u wanna sync in the cradle, but it's just not for me.

I ask the people, who possess the DSI case. Does it make the
SJ30 very thick? How does it look and feel? Can one work well with it?

I will decide between the DSI case and the Proporta case. Has someone made experiences with the Proporta case?

I'm looking forward to your advice.

csxx, no the DSI case isn't thick at all. Infact, it is probably the thinnest case out there. It is barely bigger than the PDA itself.

How does it look? Well that's best answered by this:
http://www.dsi-usa.com/pda/holster/slsjsonycase.htm

How does it feel? It is brushed aluminum. It's not as smooth as a stainless steel finish, but I think that's so that it doesn't get scratched.

One can work with it easily: the main problem is that it is difficult to turn the Clie on using thepower button. The easiest thing to do is to use one of the button on the front of the Clie to turn it on.

I bought one very recently but returned it for a replacement because: the case squeaked quite a lot each time I opened and closed it, the case scratched the top of my Clie.

I have found the first down side of my DSI case I can't plug in my combination power/sync cable without removing the case. I may ask the guys in our maintenance shop if they can (nicely) shave a~1 mm off each side of that hole. Anyone else have that problem? Other than that - and that's a big other - it doesn't squeak and it can't see it scuffing the stylus or PDA.

My cable fits, very snugly, but if I wiggle it, it goes in fine. In fact, it helps to hold in the cable a little better because those little Clips Sony put on the plug don't do crap. The only thing I did notice is one time (at band camp?) I was plugging it in and I guess I brushed the case and it sparked a little. Everything works fine, so I'm not gonna worry about the cable grounding on the case a little. But other than that, it's all good.

Got mine at Matais Corp, the Canadian distributer for DSI. The plastic part of the cable is what doesn't fit through the slot. The cable is an Innopocket with a hot sync button.

DSI

I took about 1 month deciding on a case between DSI and innopocket. I read peoples thoughts about DSI and Inno and found that it is really up to how you use your Clie.

I am on the road meeting about 10 customers a day and I have my Clie in with me at all times. I do pull the Clie out of the case about 4 times a day and I must say that the DSI case still holds the Clie the same as the day I bought it. It locks the Clie in the DSI case so if I drop my Clie then it will not pop out. It is very slim and light.


Hope this helps

Hi russr and pdafreeker, very helpful informations. Thank you.
But has anybody made experiences with the proporta case, which is supposed to be the smallest one of all?

If you want to get specific.

DSI is skinnier becuase the hinge for the DSI case is on the top and not the side.

The DSI case is taller because again the hinge is on the top.

The DSI case is probably the same thickness as the Inno possibly the DSI case may be thinner because the DSI case does not have MS storage.

The DSI case is form fitting for the SJ30.

pdafreeker, that was a real fast answer. I'm still thinking about it. You compare the DSI with the Inno. My last question: Are Inno and proporta the same cases / companies?

The Proporta case is the same as the Innopocket. I don't know if there the same company. Proporta may be a British subsidary of Innopocket though.

The Innopocket/Proporta case is thinner then the DSI case. The memory stick storage is a great feture and doesn't add any size to the case because of the shaping of the SJ30.

If you add up all the measurements carefully, the Innopocket/Proporta case is smaller and lighter then the DSI case by a bit.

I've ordered the Innopocket myself because of the fact that it will not scratch your Clie. I couldn't stand looking at a bunch of scratches all over the top of my SJ30.

However, unless you like a side flip case, the Innopocket is no good. It's even worse if you're a lefty. I personally got very used to holding the SJ30 a certain way and a side flip case prevents you from holding it like that.

Also, the Innopocket case doesn't hold in the clie as securely as the DSI...you're probably going to need some double sided tape to hold it in.

If you are interested in side flip cases, there's also this one at Amazaon.com.
