  • "better than I thought" by vfasano on 1/31/2014
    Overall: 3.5 out of 5

    I've looked at these boxes for the Pi for a while, but resisted for various reasons, price being one. Couldn't fathom that a small plastic box could be worth the $7-$9 asking price. Finally gave in and included this on a recent order, and was pleasantly surprised. The box is well constructed, openings for ports fit perfectly, and the weight of the box seems significant. Of course, putting the Pi into the box blocks all the on-board connectivity - the expansion slots are completely inaccessible once the box is closed. But if this isn't a problem, then the box is probably worth the money - it's rugged, looks good, fits nicely, has vent slots. I was wrong - it's worth the money.

  • "Good Case but......" by dkjellqu on 6/7/2013
    Overall: 4 out of 5

    Overall a good case. Model B fits well. However, note the case does NOT have an accessible slot opening for the GPIO connector. For the price you'll need to cut your own opening.

  • "Very nice case" by oskool on 3/8/2013
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    This case is top notch. There's even vent holes in the Raspberry logo on top of the case, to let heat escape. The light pipe is cool, as are the rubber feet. It's hard to get the case to come apart. There's a total of 8 clips on the case. The 4 big ones are for holding the circuit board. There's also 4 hidden clips around the very bottom that are hard to see and hold the case together. The bottom half must remain level and even with the top half while pulling it apart. If someone tries to pull it apart with one side of the case jacked way up in the air, most likely a tab will break off.

  • "Solid, well designed case" by jaspergeu on 1/14/2013
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    Great quality, nice features (rubber feet, mounting points on back) , fits the Raspberry Pi perfectly. Although for what I'm doing with it having the SD card not sticking as far of the the case would have been nice. Clear plastic makes it fun.

  • "Fits like a glove" by lambchops42 on 1/10/2013
    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    Fits around all of the ports nicely - no gaps. Tool-less installation - it's just a bunch of plastic clips The case is sturdy Has lots of ventilation on the bottom cover but very little on the top. No place for GPIO

  • "Nice fit and price!" by egsavage on 1/5/2013
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    The RPi fits nicely in this case. I was a little concerned with the clearance on some of the sockets in that they didn't protrude much beyond the case and I thought cables might not seat correctly in the RPi. My concerns were unfounded - all cables seat just fine even though the sockets are near flush or even recessed a little within the case. A note if you're using the GPIO header (which I am not currently): There is no hole on the stock case. You could always add your own hole with a small rotary saw and a file.

  • "Simple, clean, nice" by robcranfill on 12/25/2012
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    I have tried two RPi cases, now, and so far this is my favorite by far. It's compact, snugs up around the various I/O ports nicely (that is, there are minimal gaps between the connectors and the case) and I really like the way they molded what amounts to a light-pipe from the indicator lights to the surface of the case - it makes it easy to see status from far away.
