That’s about the best product i have ever seen in the lounge’s news section. It’s actually nice to look at.

You may pay more for Vaja products.  But after seeing their products up close, you truly get what you pay for.

Nice, but I wish it didn’t have that ugly, obtrusive belt clip-receiver on the back of it. I wouldn’t buy it soley for that reason.

That looks like the most classy case I have seen yet for the mini!

Vaja may neither be cheap nor fast, but their cases are neat. Just be very sure to think a lot about whether you want a belt clip or not, you might miss it one day.

they are beautiful. the most elegant cases i’ve seen yet.

all the colors look great. I love that they give pantone references, so that we can get a more accurate idea of what they will be.

A non-leather option would be nice.

Caution!!!

I agree that Vaja’s cases are beautiful. Unfortunately Vaja’s customer service is the worst I have ever encountered on any transaction in my life.

The case I bought didn’t fit right and was clearly defective. I asked for an exchange (w/digital pix attached, even). They refused to replace the case and even sent me an email explaining why the lousy fit was MY fault! Long story short, after a dozen emails to Vaja, I had to challenge the payment with my credit card company to finally get a return authorization.

If you buy anything from them, you better like it because they won’t make good if there’s a problem!

Mmm, just ordered a custom one in red, no beltclip, no personalization.  Total came to $85.90 plus shipping.  If it’s really the best, then it’ll be worth every penny, right?

I have a 3rd gen 40 gig vaja case. After trying at least 10 different cases..this is far and above the best case in looks, and function. Also.. I ordered on sunday..had it on wednesday. Of course it was not a custom case, but..2 days turnaround amazed me. Last case I will ever buy for my ipod, and when I eventually get a mini..I will get their case for that as well. Also ..I sent them an email stating my satisfaction with the product and they personally answered me the same day.. no automated response..truly a thank you from them for my email. Highly recommended from my one time experience.

who are you guys that you can spend upwards of $50 on just a CASE for an mp3 player because it looks nice.
I could never justify that even if i had enough money.

paid 500 for the mp3 player. What’s 50 dollars to protect it?

I have toagree with you Pigpen65. If I spend $500 on my ipod Im going to want it to survive. Consider the case somthing like insureance agenst scratches or smashings. I can walk around saftly knowing that my ipod is not going to get scratch with my case protecting it.

Regarding the iPod case:

For some reason you can’t order this color scheme, though they show a picture of it on the site

I wanted to order a Classic Veja case for my 3G several times. I keep getting “Out of stock” messages. I checked back several times in the last nine months. They were always out of stock. So I bought a Marware CEO classic instead. Had it in three days. If these folks want to make it they need to get on the ball. That said, my friend has a Veja case for his Dell Axiom PDA. The quality and workmanship is top notch. Too bad they don’t want my money.
