Yea, it's more of a holster than "ues it in there" type case. I don't have a setrial cable, but if it's anything like the iPaq cables it should work with this case. All the ports are accessable.


P.S. Nothing beats a door as a desk top!

I have just realized to have purchased a very nice case for my Zaurus 6000L biggrin.gif cool.gif
It is made by CaseLogic. I bought it from www.digitalpowerpro.com through this eBay auction: http://cgi.ebay.it/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...me=STRK:MEWN:IT
It costed to me $ 4.95 + $ 10.00 for the shipping, it fits the Zaurus perfectly, the width is OK, the height is OK, but the zipper height is just a few millimeters shorter than the Zaurus, but you don't have problems to close it inside, pulling just a little bit.
The exact dimensions are: 6.37"L x 4"W x 1.25"D approximately 162mm L x 101mm W x 32mm D.
If you don't care to close the Zaurus together with CF cards sticking out of it, I think it's currently one of the best solutions. But please be care that you will have space for only the Zaurus inside this case, maybe a small piece of paper, a credit card or an additional SD card, nothing more.
I was only interested to let other people know of this case solution, because it was rather difficult for me to find a good one before. I am in no way affiliated either with CaseLogic or with the mentioned eBay store.

I have one Caselogic plt2 - it doesn't fit at all. It's not a problem of a couple of millimeters - if you close the zip you scatch the Z.

And the plastic holder won't hold the Z. Too big. Not a good case at all.

oh. I see. It wasn't as immediately clear from the first photo that the "bottom" was a couple of straps. It appeared as though there was perhaps some black fabric in between there, which would obscure the serial port, but now I see that is the back of the z6k.

I have a Serial I/O cable and it looks like it would attach without interference.

it also appears as though there might be enough room/stretch to fit the Z even if it had the expansion pack (I don't have one, but I am considering getting one so I can take fullest advantage... maybe the price will come down a little first).

If it's not trouble for you, could you also post a photo of the top of the case, similar to the second shot you posted of the bottom? Curious how accessible the SD and CF slot(s) are with it all closed up (say for a wired network card).

The reason I'm asking about all this stuff is that I often just plop the Z on my desk at then hook up to it with SSH or VNC. If I could leave it in the case and just connect some wires, that would be most ideal (short of also being able to use it while still in the case, but you can't have everything now, can you?).

thanks again.

I sit it in backwards because the back of the case has a metal instert. Figured on a little extra protection for the screen. I had to replace the screen on my iPaq last year, p.i.t.a. It took three months to get the screen from foxconn, only took 20 minuts to replace though.
You won't be able to use a wired cf card with the case closed, the flap does cover the cf and sd cards.

It might need some minor modification to the velcro to fit with the expansion adapter. It has to be attached crooked now to fit, with the adapter? It will fit the "super guppy" iPaq and dual pcmcia card sleeve.

Hey, maybe ZUG could start a case by model page?

http://www.ebags.com/sumdex/palm_pocket_pc...fm?modelid=6965

6.25" x 4" x 1" for $5.59 -> tight?
http://www.ebags.com/sumdex/twill_pda_pock...m?modelid=42737

7* 4.5" x 1.5" for 15.99 -> elegant
http://www.ebags.com/case_logic/strongman_...m?modelid=44303

7.75 * 4.25" x 1.5" for 15.99 -> kinda long but should be would with CF card attached

Hi, the nutshell company (http://www.tuff-as-nuts.com/Products.htm) in New Zeland has a great variety of cases and one should fit the sl-6000. They give you all the dimensions. If you find one that fits let me know what you think.

I have a Nutshell case and it works great. Mine is PDA case #215. Even though the dimension of the case is shorter than the Zaurus on the spec it fits perfect. You can also customize it in many ways. Downside of this case is that it's not cheap.

The funny thing is, I've got the Expansion adapter, so my 6K is big biggrin.gif And I went all over the place looking at digital camera cases and other things that might hold it well.

In the end, I had a case that fit PERFECTLY, and I mean, PERFECTLY as if it were MADE for the 6K + Expansion Adapter... can you guess what it was???

It's the binocular case that came with my Bushnell 16x32 binocs. I had bought the binoculars from Target I believe when they were on sale for about $30. The only discernable model number on the binoculars shows 13-1632.

The case isn't a clip-on case, instead you run your belt through the loop it has and it stays on you. All you do is pull open the top (closes with velcro) and pull out the Zaurus. It works... even if it isn't as cool as some other cases look. ph34r.gif

I think people are missing a trick by not looking at cases you can get for the Gameboy Advance - they've dirt cheap, and all of 'em will fit an SL5xxx, and some fit the SL6000 as well.

I mostly use a cheapie own brand leather case from Game (used to be EB) for my SL5500:




It's a perfect fit for a SL5500, and has a pocket for your extra SD/CF/Wifi/etc. Cost about £5 (or $8 for the folks in the US).

I've also got a Gameboy Advance belt pouch/holster. I think my son bought this for me from Toy's-R-Us. It's actually a bit big for the SL5500, so the 5500 fits in with it's WIFI card still in the CF slot. But handily, with it being that bit bigger, it actually fits the SL6000 perfectly (not shown - my wife's hidden the SL6000 'coz it's my christmas present).





Again, it's got an internal pocket for your extra SD/CF cards, and also has a belt clip (velcro'ed at on end to clip over your belt). I think it cost him about £4 ($7 ish).

The holster looks a bit battered in the photos - that's from it's time holding my GBA on various beachs around the world (Antigua, Koh Samui, Brighton...).

Just bought myself this one: TRAX Zippered Camera Pouch - Model: TCP-03
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id...19&type=product

My SL-6000L fits there perfectly. The pouch is actually twice thicker than Z, so if you carry additional accessories, there is place for them too.

Hi folks,

How do you carry your SL-6000 with you? I'll be buying online without seeing, therefore I'm wondering which case would be suitable. There are many cases for Palm and iPaq but SL6000 would not seem to fit in.

Thanks in advance.

There is a pinned topic in 6000 hardware, but I use thepouch from thepouch.com for my first two Zaurii and I am considering it for my 6000. They will custom make it for a perfect fit. It is neoprene and protects well from water and impact. The downside is not being to use the Z within the case and small storage space for extra cards
