Packaging. The case arrives boxed in the simple packaging shown below. The case comes with a carrying strap.
The black velvet has an attractive sheen to it and feels good to the hand. The flip-style cover flips over the top of the player and secures with a snap.
The closure is magnetic - with the pin clinging securely to its receptacle when closed.
The 80-GB player slides into side clips that clasp the player securely. When the case is opened, all controls and connectors are wide open and easily accessed.
On the inside of the flip cover, you can see the aluminum lining through a window. If your player is subject to abuse, this aluminum lining just might save your screen one day.
A slim pocket will accept a business card, or a bill or two. It's nice to have some way for an honest soul to identify you as the owner if you ever misplace your Zune.
When the flip cover is closed, the sync cable connector on the bottom of the player is covered.
The flip cover covers the hold switch but leaves the headphone jack accessible.
Side views of the case:
The white stitching is tight and straight.
The included strap can be attached to a D-ring mounted on the rear of the case.
The Proporta Aluminum-Lined Leather case is well-made, looks good, and holds your Zune 80 in its unique side clips. We're giving it our Recommended by Zunerama rating.
