I know there has been lots of discussion regarding cases for gen 8 units. I had considered getting the leather case from MP3technology but decided on this one from I-nique as they had a discount offer and it looked a better quality http://www.i-nique.com/detail.asp/c=573/sku=5055205289403. Anyway attached are a few photos for you to make up your own mind.

It's nicely designed, high quality and I think overal looks professional and complements the 101....I hope it helps those people trying to decide which case to go for.

What price did you end up paying w/shipping? Even w/the 10% coupon & shipping to the US it doesn't seem to be a significant savings over the Noreves option.

About the same as the Noreves. These both seem like real nice cases but I wish someone would make a decent option for about half the pice which shouldn't be 7heard of since leather cases for mobile phones can be had for a few bucks. I realize their quality is usually lacking but somewhere in the middle would be nice.

I paid just under 34 pounds but have no idea what it would cost to ship to the states....sorry.

For some things I'm a big believer in the term "you get what you pay for" and this is one of those cases (no pun intended). With this case the archos looks like an even more impressive bit of kit.

At the end of the day its comes down to personal choice....

Hello shallowreef,

Thanks for the photos. It seems to be high quality.
Is it the leather case or articificial leather case from Tuff Luv?

Someone has an idea about the artificial leather quality?

What is the discounf offer?

I purchased the veggie version of this and sadly its going back after less than a week :(

Build quality is awesome, however the sizing isnt and it ever so slightly hangs over and edge and if i move it around it soons settles back with the slight over hang. Its a fraction of a mm it appears, so aesthetically not a problem...however it activates the blinkin search soft button in a continuous loop almost until you pop your finger under the edge and lift the case away from the screen :roll:

Oh well, trying another case now from a differnt supplier, will see how that goes :)

I just got this case and I can say that it is amazing. I can throw my Archos in my backpack and not worry about it getting smashed or the screen getting pressed against. The adjustable stand is awesome and having different angles is cool. The only issues I have is that if the Archos is not pushed all the way down then the case pushes on the search button and will continuously activate search until you move your hand off of the case on that side. I have fixed the problem by pushing the Archos all the way to the bottom and it remedies the problem. Overall I would give the case a 9 of of 10 due to the fit and protection. It loses a point due to the weird search button issue which is easily solved.
