    Has anyone had experience with this case? I want something that looks good (I like the aluminum look) and that will take a beating when dropped. I also like the fact that I don't have to remove the case to use all the features of the Treo. Can anyone give me a yay or nay on this? Thanks.

    The problem with this may be that it won't distribute the 'shock' if dropped. I would think the screen would still crack. I did drop my Treo 600 and cracked the screen, so I do know it can happen very easily. Although it is cool looking, you may want to invest more into a piel frama (http://www.pielframa.com/palmone_treo_650_eng.htm) or the vaja (http://www1.vajacases.com/images/sma.../treo_650.html).

    the pacrim T650 case referenced is virtually the same as their T600 case, and i'm using one of those on my T650 currently. It needed only a couple of minor mods to accomodate the wider hotsync connector and the side key. the case is lined in a neoprene-like material, which is snug against the device itself. while i haven't dropped it, and don't intend to, i believe it provides excellent protection for the device. the case itself has a fair degree of inherent flex, so if it strikes something the case itself will absorb much/most of the shock, and the neoprene will dampen the transfer of that to the unit.

    this isn't explicitly a defense/recommendation of the pacrim case. frankly, as well designed as it is, i really really dislike the overall look of my T650 in it. it loses all semblance of the sleek quality the bare T650 has. it makes it look like a walkie-talkie or worse, some sort of geek 'communicator' (not that the Treo's themselves don't have that quality to some extent implicitly!)...

    i'm contemplating either egrips - which don't provide any real protection against a drop in and of themselves, but do reduce the likelyhood of the slipp'ry little devil leaping out of your hands - and something along the lines of the boxwave activeskins, which seem to do a good job of remaining low-key/understated, while providing good drop protection (T650 model not available yet).

    I'll probably only use the case once in a while like in high risk situations. When I'm snow skiing or having drinks at the bar Those would be the times that I would most likely drop the phone or fall on the thing.
