Gets the job done if you can stand the smell of neoprene
on July 24, 2010
I recently purchased an Acer AspireOne 532h Netbook with 10.1" screen. This looked like a nice little zippered sleeve type case that would protect my netbook without being too bulky. It does that OK. The zipper works smoothly and the case, being neoprene easily stretches to accommodate the bulging battery of the Acer One. I don't feel that the case is too large for the Acer, it seems just about right to me. I suppose it -could- be slightly smaller to fit the Acer very snugly but as far as I'm concerned the tighter the fit, the harder it would be to easily slip the netbook in and out of the case.
What is very objectionable to my nose is the awful smell of the neoprene. I've had other neoprene cases for other devices but this one has such a strong odor that I just can't stand it. I've actually returned this case and will search some more for something else similar.
It also dawned on me that I might like a case that has an external zippered pocket to accommodate the charger and/or a mouse. I'm not docking any points for the lack of a pocket because I knew beforehand that this was a pocketless case. Just sayin'.
I guess if the smell doesn't bother you then this is a viable choice. I actually purchased mine at a Big Box Office Suppply Store for $15 after a 20% discount so the price of under $10 (as I write this) on Amazon is one heck of a good deal, especially if you have an Amazon Prime account (free shipping.)
For me though, the smell killed the deal and I can't award this case any more than 3 stars. Take the smell away and you've got a 5 star case.
