Pros: sturdy design, easy in and out, good screen protection
Cons: placement of clip has ejected my SD card ever, not a fan of swivel clips in general
I have now had this holster for about 4 months now and it has withstood my considerable abuse quite well during that time. It is easy enough to get it in and out one handed, though admittedly this did require some amount of muscle memory training.
I would highly recommend this holster to anyone who is looking for a low profile, durable, carrier for your phone.
Pros: Looks good, feels good, works well...
Cons: Take some effort to remove from holster
One more tip. I "skinned" my treo 700 with a "shieldzone" protective cover. I was concerned the form fitting holster would not accommodate the skinned treo. Because the skin from shieldzone is super thin I was also concerned the holster made for skinned treos would be too large. If faced with a similar dilema get the unskinned holster. Again the shieldzone skin is so thin the treo fits in the unskinned holster without any problems.
The phone-clip needs to be longer, to hold the Treo securely. I pop-riveted an aluminum extension piece (shaped like a backwards "C") onto the clip, and used some adhesive-backed felt cut the same shape to prevent scratches, and it works great.
I like the protection the inward-facing holster provides. But, do the modification or dont buy it.
Pros: Holds Treo very securely in place
Cons: The swivel clip is somewhat loose
On the downside, the latch that covers the SD card also "rakes" across it when inserting/removing my Treo. In addition, it catches the speaker on/off switch, so I am a little worried that it might cause some damage to the switch down the road. Also, although I like that the the swivel clip is low profile, the latch that locks it in place gives it somewhat too much play and it will spin too easily.
Overall though, it's a good holster and I would buy it again.
