I can testify to that.  I was attempting to pull it out of the end of all 
that bubble-wrap Roger taped around it, and when the tape on the back end 
that I didn't know was stuck to the end of the pack finally came loose, it 
went flying about 3 feet, out and down to a concrete floor in my basement.  
Knocked the eb101 out of its socket, but no other damages, not even a dimple 
on the case corner.

Cheers, Gene
