My feelings, exactly! I'd love to take the Reader with me on [rare] occasions I find a little down time. I don't trust it loose in the car, and uncomfortable putting it in the briefcase where it might bang against something and crack the screen. Everybody in the world offers a case for my Treo. Surely someone is going to design a great case for the Sony Reader.

Would be nice to have like a flip over the top cover variant on the stock/extra covers...

Have an idea of a insert. Need to see if I can get the parts locally to make it. Catch is it must be very lite.

Before I read your post, I thought that I had just got a flawed cover, and asked them to send me another that wasn't off by those few degrees. I'll see. I don't knkow if they will send another or simply refund my money.

Strange. I would have expected a different answer from the Vaja people -- I suppse the problem being where are they going to get the bracket that the reader snaps in to.

I've dealt with them on many many occasions, love their cases, and have had custom cases made for devices that they don't "stock" before.

Whew!! Glad to hear it wasn't just me. Was afraid I was the only one who thought the case was poorly aligned.

Confirmed that the replacement cover { brown } has the same fatal flaw as the first one..

Will be take that one back also...

One other item....

It very hard to snap it on.. The case it came with is easy to snap on and off. But feels like your going to drive it through the unit....

Yes, I found it very hard to snap on also. And it kept coming off. I received an email from Sony last night and they simply refunded my money back to my Credit Card. So I guess either I will buy a cover in person from a store or find some other substitute. I really want something more colorful than the cover that came with the reader. BTW that original cover is already starting to show wear and tear on the leatherette trim.

I should have slid open the 2nd one at the store.. If you do open it at the store.. Cut the fold at the bottom of the pack. Super easy to get out. But for now may hold for a while on #3. I think they may have a MFG goof and not a isolated problem...

I hope they did not put the bat division on handling the extra cases designed and production.

I would be happy for a spare stock case or two...

Well. Went back to Borders. They went through their stock of brown ones while I was there.. All off by different degrees and a major pain to clip on.

Leaning to a poll like this...

Brown Cover Fits
Brown Cover Does not fit
Red Cover Fits
Red Cover Does not fit
Green Cover Fits
Green Cover Does not fit

Getting feeling none fit.

PS: How is the Poll setup here? Or is it moderator done.

PSS: Thinking of a file... But the clip feel like its wrong size or something...

You have to start a new thread to do a poll -- it's one of the options way down at the bottom of the page, right above the last "Submit New Thread" button.

You don't add the questions until after you've hit the "Submit New Thread" button, it takes you to a second screen for entering the actual poll text & answers.
