Logitech is a powerhouse in making accessories
for mobile, computing and gaming industries. Even before the
Sony PSP was released in the US, we saw the demos of several
PSP accessories showcased at the Game Developers Conference
by Logitech, we knew we had to get them. The PlayGear Pocket
case for the PSP not only provides very good protection for
your gaming machine, it also makes a fashion statement.
To design a case with style that matches the
beauty and strength of the Sony PSP can be a challenge. The
PlayGear Pocket met that challenge with a bold yet stylish
design that will make you proud to show off your PSP dressed
in this case. The PlayGear Pocket is solidly constructed in
clear polycarbonate plastic shell with black rubber lining
on the inside. The polycarbonate material will provide the
maximum protection to your PSP while the inside liner will
prevent scratches to the PSP surface and absorb the shock from
bumps and shakes when carrying the PSP in a backpack. You will
find a small white Logitech logo stamped on the lid of the
case and a round cutout in the black rubber lining on the bottom
cover to show off the PSP branding through the translucent
case. The lid domes out slightly and the bottom cover curves
on both left and right to match the curved design on the PSP.
All edges on the Logitech case are rounded to make the case
comfy to carry.
The Sony PSP fits in the case perfectly, and
thanks to the rubber lining, the PSP won't move around while
in the case nor will any buttons be pushed accidentally. When
the lid is open, all ports and buttons are exposed for easy
access except the UMD on the back. When the case is closed,
you will find the four corners of the PSP along with the Power
on/off and hold buttons exposed. This means you can charge
the PSP and listen to music via headphones while the unit is
stored in the case. The PlayGear Pocket shuts securely when
closed and you can open the case by pushing a small lip lever
to release the latches.
The lid and bottom cover are connected via a
strong hinge that's designed to use the case as a stand for
the PSP as well. The lid can rotate 270 degrees to form the
stand that is stable for the PSP to sit in at a 45 degree angle
while you watch a movie. You can also play games while the
PSP is in the case, though it does add about 6 oz. of weight.
If you are likely to play games in outdoor environment, the
lid will come in handy as a visor to block sunlight.
If you are looking for a case that provides
maximum protection for the PSP, the Logitech PlayGear Pocket
should be on your short list. It gives your PSP the protection
it needs without subtracting the style. The case gives you
easy access to all ports and buttons and can be used as a
desk stand. The quality is top notch and it's reasonably
