This hard case is a well made, snug fitting cover that protects while complimenting the Zire 72. The access holes for cables are very accessible - not recessed into the plastic or rimmed with strengthening bosses. The sliding camera cover has a firm, quality feel about it that does not shift once positioned. The aluminum lid is thick enough not to dent easily. The plastic back is very strong and has an appealing rubberized feel to the surface. Rubber shock strips at the bottom interface between case and the Zire unit is a nice touch also. The strips are well adhered to the case and dense enough to last a very long time without deterioration. The hinge also bears mentioning, it is well designed and has a nice 190-200 degrees of movement. Installing the Zire 72 requires a firm push as it travels evenly to the bottom. The case dimensions flow over the Zire like a good ground effects package - very sporty looking. It's hard to believe that there is room included to hold two spare SD cards. This will be appreciated once the video bug bites you at 70MB per hour. The case's curves fit the hand nicely too, but the graceful curves make standing the case up against anything during videoing nearly impossible. Everyone who's held a video camera already knows holding the case gets tiring very quickly. The hinge has a nice range of motion, but nowhere in that range is a reliable place where the lid can function as a prop to support the unit while taking videos due to the shifted center of gravity caused by the raked backed chassis curves at the bottom. As nice as this case is, there are some serious issues a purchaser needs to consider before purchasing as is. First, there is no port for the microphone or speaker. Second no provision was made for mounting a camera tripod.
