Soon after the original Sony PSP (the PSP 1000) hit the market a few years ago, Logitech put out the PlayGear Pocket, a protective carrying case for the Sony gaming handheld, which we really liked. Now Logitech has released the same case for newer, slimmer PSP models (the PSP 2000, released in 2007, and the PSP 3000, coming October 2008). It's basically the same case, just a bit smaller. As a result, most of what we said in our earlier review applies to this case as well.
This simple, yet sleek, case is made of hard, clear plastic, but it's lined with firm, black foam rubber, so it appears to be predominantly black. For creative types, the good news is the rubber lining slips out, allowing you to slide your own artwork between the plastic and the foam, thereby customizing the look of the case. That's why Logitech describes the product as skinnable. (Key the words "PlayGear Pocket skins" into Google and you will find plenty of designs that you can print out on a color printer and cut out to fit in the case).
