    Well it's arrived 3 days after ordering and on first impressions it's very very nice.

    There are 2 colour options available white & Black. I've chosen black to match my HD3

    The Case is made form soft leather with a tough plastic window to cover the screen with a circular cutout for access to the HD3's circular button. The HD3 slides perefectly into the case and is a nice fit.

    The case is secured closed by to pressstud type connectors, this ensures that the case is securly closed and cannot be accidently opened.

    The case gives easy access to all the buttons and sockets, although to sync you will have to open the case and move the HD3 about 10mm to eanble the USB cable to engage (only a minor issue)

    The case comes with a belt clip, which is also very sturdy. This connects to the back of the case via a thumb screw, once connected the case can be removed easily by pressing the button on the belt clip. When using the belt clip the case is securely attached and cannot be removed accidently.

    So was it worth the 45.88EUR (total inc delivery) a simple answer YES

    I have some pictures, but I've not got a clue how to display them. Anyone tell me how to do this please?

    £30 for a small case?! im getting one from empire direct for £15 and i think thats too much! After spending £200 you expect to come with a decent case and dont get me started about no remote! :)

    You have to remember though this one has been designed specifically for the HD3 and is the best i've seen, and £30 for a pure leather case is not bad. IMHO

    At £24 I think these one's offer better proection but it is NW1 only

    Or the Vaja's, but the Noreve is ok as well.

    Well worth the money - all the other cases don't give access to the buttons and the belt clip is superb, easy to remove if you don't want to use it.

    I have had an e-mail from fed-ex saying that mine is on it's way. However if I try and track it there is no record of a scan.
    How did you order yours?

    i did same, look about now and it'll tell you. Its a nice case, but i was a bit annoyed that the screen came with loads of minor scratches on it :( But that doesnt really bother me too much, still looks class ;)
