Default Vaja Cases: Protecting Your Zune With Style

<p>A case can serve two different purposes. The first reason is almost always protection. The screen especially is always at risk of scratching. The other purpose is looks. Now I&rsquo;m personally a huge fan of the design of the Zune. I have been since the original Zune 30s with their unique double shot and I love the classy lines of the current generation. It takes a special case to enhance the looks of the Zune and there is always one company that will provide such a case. If you&rsquo;re not new to the world of electronic gadgets, <a href="http://www.vajacases.com/" target="_blank">Vaja&rsquo;s name</a> will come as no surprise.</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1220288661.usr307.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><em>Figure 1: Such an unassuming package!</em></p><p>Vaja has a case for all Zune series now available but I&rsquo;ll just be showing pictures of the Zune 80 case. For the Zune 80 there is only one style available in both aniline and vitelino leathers. I chose a case in passion vitelino leather and no belt clip. The case is simple and functional, with cutouts for a synch cable and the front controls. Integrated into the rear of the case is a stand which easily folds out to allow easy video watching. Now on to the pictures!<MORE /></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1220288666.usr307.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><em>Figure 2: The first thing you see when you open the box is the case.</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1220288671.usr307.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><em>Figure 3: You can see in the picture how beautiful the leather is.</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1220288677.usr307.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><em>Figure 4: Look at how well the stand folds away into the back.</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1220288682.usr307.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><em>Figure 5: The stand really puts your Zune at the perfect viewing angle.</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1220288691.usr307.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><em>Figure 6: Red leather and a black Zune...lookin' good!</em></p><p>This case is <a href="http://www.vajacases.com/home/home_en.html?Prod=mp3-microsoft-zune 80GB&amp;ini=bms032c&amp;c=4&amp;it=6&amp;s=1" target="_blank">available from Vaja</a> for the starting price of $70. This is definitely not an inexpensive purchase but there is nothing that rivals the quality of a Vaja case!</p><p><em>David Tucker is a contributing editor for Zune Thoughts and is a big fan of rock and all things technology.

Default Zune case

Beautiful case. IMHO...Worth half the money. Also needs an armband option.

Does the Zune scratch easily? It's already a bit on the large size, I'd prefer not to get a case if I don't have to...

It doesn't but that didn't keep me from scratching the screen in my Zune 30. The case really adds very little bulk.
