Proporta, known for their innovative hardware, software and cases, brings us a real let me see that thing case for the Tungsten C. Like their other hard cases, this one will definitely turn heads. It is made of the finest quality 100% anodized aircraft aluminum and completely lined with a soft protective neoprene cushioning. You feel like your Tungsten C is very well protected and has the compliment of an advanced high tech, professional look.
The case is well crafted, sleek, and lightweight.
The fit is slim-line; no bulkiness on this case and its snug fit has cutouts for access to every hardware too on the Tungsten C device. The size is 124 x 88 x 24.4 mm; its weight is approximately 65g. This is definitely a finely crafted case, the neoprene lining not only protects your Tungsten C from drops and shocks it protects it from getting scratched while in the case. Need to carry a couple of extra SD media cards? Well there are two snug housing locations in built in.
The Tungsten C looks great in this case. The two together look like they come as one unit from the factory. I do have one problem though. The cover hampers the thumb board use. I would have had this review done long before now but this one point has perplexed me for days. I have gone through some serious experimentation and flexibility exercises. I have reached the point where I can use the thumb board without feeling to uncomfortable but the cover door is always somewhat in the way on the right-hand side.
OK, bottom line. On one side of the issue is the ability to freely utilize the Tungsten C s thumb board and the other side of the issue is the Tungsten C s price and your desire to protect it.
What do you do?
Well, that is up to you. But you at least have to take a look at this case it is gorgeous. I’ve managed to get used to the door and appreciate the way the case protects my investment.
Advanced high tech, professional look, while sporting the 100% anodized aircraft aluminum and the soft protective cushioning of neoprene, which provides great protection for an expensive device.
Cover hampers free use of the thumb board
