Product Reviews

  • "Poor case design" by gdsmit1 on 8/1/2013
    Overall: 2 out of 5

    I received one of these cases with my Raspberry Pi bundle. Initially it appeared to be a great design. Each side of the case is open to allow all cables to be routed out any side. Unfortunately this doesn't work in practice. The board is held in place by 4 fingers that press in on the side of the board. Putting in any cables causes the board to pop loose from the supports. Do yourself a favor and get a different case.
