After cracking the screen on my SL-C860 and paying an obnoxious amount to have it repaired, I wanted to get a very durable case to prevent it happening again. After shopping around, I came across OtterBox Cases and, more specifically, The OtterBox 2000. It's only 16.95 plus shipping, and I actually got the one from the Bargain Bin for just $10. My 860 fits snugly inside even with the Pretec CF WIFI card installed (which I think is one of the longer cards). The cases are meant to be waterproof to 30m and crushproof. Check them out...

So I cracked the screen on my month-old SL-C860 sad.gif
I sent it back to Japan for repair and Sharp wants $272 for a new screen (which seems a bit outrageous since Palm charges $125 for screen replacement. I know the zaurus has a better screen, but still...).

Anyway, I am wondering if it is worth paying for the repair. Does anyone have any use for a zaurus with a cracked screen (for parts, ssh host, etc)? If so please let me know what you think it would be worth. If someone needs the parts and wants it at a good enough price, it might be worth selling unrepaired.
