I have got a PRS505 that goes everywere with me and i am sick of being scared of the thing getting damaged, does anyone have a good hard case for the PRS505 that can be ordered to the UK without paying huge delivery and tax costs ?

I believe the Tri-Fold case is sold through Sony UK. See thread below.

I've had mine over a year using the original case and more recently with the tuff-luv case.

It lives in the knee pocket of my cargo trousers, most of the time. Or in the ipod/mp3 packet of my Swissgear Maxxum laptop backpack. And does the tube journey for 3 hours a day in my hand. The most damage was done dropping it 3 inches onto a foam mattress and breaking the plastic clip on the stock cover.

While I am a vocal proponant of upgrading from the case provided, I honestly think that once you have a decent softcase that should be enough for the vast majority of the time (unless you work in construction) or somewhere where it's more likely to get hit.

I got the tri-fold, and it really felt more secure and protective than the original cover. Unfortunately, it's still susceptible to the dreaded broken clip, but the case itself was wonderful.

I also use the dvd tin with the original cover. The tin is great for protection and you can personalize it by covering it with stickers.

Many thanks, karo02!

I'll see if I can get a camera. It could prove really embarrassing, as my 5yr old godson helped choose the stickers. Honest <g>.

Maybe I should do a more mature tin to be taken out in public...

Weird. It always amazes me the things that companies wont ship to other countries. I could just about understand them not shipping the reader but the case????
