Sony DPT-RP1 (non-flip) case recommendations
#1  Estuche 11-15-2019, 01:54 PM
Hi, has anyone tried a protective case that is not of the flip cover variety? If so, what can you recommend? Either a case that covers the edges of the device, or a sleeve would be fine, or anything that does not need to be flipped to open (just my personal preference). Anyone?

Or, has anyone used a case designed for an iPad pro with this reader?

Sleeve - perfect fit.

Hard Case with magnetic closure for when I travel with it. I was worried about a zipper/teeth scratching the screen. I have both the black and teal, I use the teal more as it is easily visible in my black backpack and it is a visual reminder to be careful! I slide it in the sleeve first and then put this in the hard case for a tight fit. If you just put the device itself in, it does move back and forth as it is designed for a thicker laptop.

Stylus Holder - I stuck it to the sleeve

I couldn't be happier. They are perfect for my purposes.

Excellent, recommendations like these are what I am after. A few questions:

+Doesn't the Dockem sleeve leave part of the Sony uncovered, as it was designed for the iPad?

+Does the Runetz case have any padding in it?

Dockem sleeve covers the RP1 completely. And it isnt going to fall out even if you tried. A little tight actually when it first arrived but stretched it out with my fingers and it is as if it was made for the RP1. You won't be disappointed.

The Runetz does not have any padding, just the hard shell, but a very soft fleece like material on the inside. This is why I keep it in the sleeve, even when in the hard case.

Another case I recently purchased:

13" Brenthaven Tred Sleeve - Vertical sleeve with hard shell on the outside and EXCELLENT padding on the inside. To be honest, this is the first case I have used where I feel my RP1 is 100% protected. VERY impressed with this one and the fit.

FYI, I thought that the 13 inch sleeve might be too big, but the 15.25 inch height is because of padding on the top and bottom. I also purchased the 12 inch sleeve, and while the RP1 fit, I thought it was too tight and returned it in favor of the 13 inch.
