Product Reviews

  • "Too Small for Cables!" by raspi_user on 5/21/2013
    Overall: 1 out of 5

    The interior dimension is way too small to connect cables to the Raspberry Pi! Even with all 90 degree angled cables, the fit is very, very tight. The power supply is fine with an angled cable, but Ethernet and HDMI will not fit!! I ended up cutting a new hole on the side of my enclosure (near the Pi's Ethernet port) to route my cables. Do not buy this enclosure if you plan to operate the Pi with any cables connected!

  • "Looks great but doesn't fit" by disconn3ct on 11/26/2012
    Overall: 1.5 out of 5

    It looks cool, but there is not enough clearance for cables. HDMI has to be severely bent, usb ports are worse, and even the ethernet only has about 1/4" of cable exposed before the wall. (If you look at the manufacturer's youtube, you'll notice they never have a pi in the case - they just show it off empty. I suspect it was manufactured based on published sizes and not tested with an actual unit.) The idea is great, but it needs to be at least 1/2" larger in diameter. (The clips/slots that hold the board are perfect, fwiw, and the cable management underneath is cool if you can use it. Without the top - just the plate part - it works pretty well.)
