Protective case

Post by wvriverats »

I'm still waiting on my DM42 and have been thinking about a rugged case for it. Something a bit more protective than the typical slip cover. I managed to find this online and ended up ordering one.

Looking at the dimensions of the calculators that it is supposed to fit I think it should work. Length and width match up perfectly. The DM42 is 5mm thinner though. I'll let everyone know how it works when I get it and the DM42. Someone may have already tried it, if so, please chime in. Or, if you can suggest any alternatives that I should consider it would be greatly appreciated. I'm also going to get some of those screen protectors (from another thread) as well.

Thanks,

Randy

AFAIK, there is gorilla glass covering the LCD of the DM42 already. Just FYI.

So there isn't really a need for a screen protector?

Certainly a second sheet of gorilla glass will not reduce protection. I can't tell you, however, how much it will increase... (my DM42 travels as it was delivered in my back pack within its slip cover or something alike - no problems experienced so far).

I was going to post some pictures, but either I can't figure out how or I'm not able. Wanted to say that the DM42 is incredible and the case fits surprisingly well. It is a bit close on the lowest row of keys but other than that I'm happy with it.
