Thanks, I will get a hard case at some point. I like the metal cigar-case idea I read in the Bookeen forum. Perhaps I can find one. For now I am using a 7" Eee sleeve with the styrofoam pieces left in.
The screen size, book display and quality are wonderful. Page turns are quick with minimal disruption from the clearing process. I don't notice any difference from the jetBook which is LCD-based. However, I wish there was an additional page-turn button on the left side of the unit.
