$3.50 Archos 70 case

Post by chunkzdamasta »

Here's a video of the case I bought for $3.50 on Amazon. Plus a little look at swype at the end. :lol:

Can you please post a link to this case on Amazon. I have searched for it there with no luck.

Thx.

Mine shipped (under $4 total) about 10 days ago and hasn't arrived yet.

Where did you get a swype version that works with the A70? I installed it from the real Beta Swype installer and the swyping feature does not work. Only manually typing.

I got my case in and let me tell you, its freaking incredible! I went to barnes&noble, target, walmart, and best buy. I ended up with this crap case for $30 from best buy that I was only 62% satisfied with. This case from Amazon that cost me less than $4 total (bought two weeks ago) is 100% exactly what I was looking for but couldn't find anywhere locally.

Best Buy return here I come.

The guys video says that his case stunk and he had to set it outside for a "few" days. My case smells like some cheap fake stinky leather if you stick your nose straight up to it on the inside. Unless I'm licking the inside of the case it's not noticeable. A+.

They've been tweaking the price on this one a lot lately. I think I paid $5.99 shipped. It's not the perfect case, but it's pretty darn good, especially for that price!

I find the case comparable to the ones made and sold at Barnes and Noble stores, and the differences are:
- The B&N case is heavier (made of better material), but the amazon case is lighter and thinner (+1).
- The B&N case has the same hard pocket at the bottom except its made of plastic. The A70 slides around easily. The amazon case bottom pocket is not made of plastic and fits very snugly (+1).
- The B&N bottom plastic covers too much of the bottom. One user drilled a hole in the bottom to access stuff. The amazon case you can still access the power button easily (+1).
- The B&N case at the top has these two leather straps. They aren't as easy to get on and off and don't hold the A70 as well. The amazon case has rubber straps that do a great job (+1).
- The B&N case doesn't stink, if that bothers you (+1). The amazon case stinks for some people.

The smell comments are interesting, as mine smells like leather and nothing else. One of the straps does obscure the power connection, but I've been using the case without using that strap and it still seems to hold the tablet pretty well.

The 250gig is 14mm thick (compared to 10mm for the 8gig), while the Nook (that this case is designed for) is 13mm. It might be tight but I suspect it will fit.
