Product Description

Keep your Raspberry Pi® computer safe and sound in this lovely clear acrylic enclosure. The case comes as 6 pieces that snap together, made of crystal-clear acrylic. This ingenious design has no screws or standoffs and there are cute little feet cut into the sides so that it stands up above your desk. You can use all of the connectors on the edges of the Pi: HDMI, Audio, Video, SD slot, micro USB power, Ethernet and the two USB ports. We also added a slot so that you can connect a 26-pin IDC cable to the GPIO breakout pins on the Pi and pass it though the case. The case is airy enough that no additional vents or cooling is required - we tested the enclosed Pi over a 24 hour period at full load with no significant increase in temperature.

After some time of playing with RPi, I thought I should put it in some box, so that it doesn't get damaged. When I looked at the internet, I found quite rich selection of different boxes and chose this one, since it seemed as best for my needs (protection and maybe some modding).
When I received my package, I built the box according to given instructions. I've been a little disappointed, because the different small parts didn't fit precisely and all box seemed a bit loose and not not very stable, but then I thought it doesn't matter. Next disappointment was missing access to GPIO port. And last one, although it was partially my fault, was that when my RPi fell down from my table, the box broke on many places and it's not holding together at all now. For the price I did expect a little bit more sturdy materials and better designed construction, so that it doesn't "wiggle".
But on the other hand, I must admit it was nicely cut and I really like the frosted glass look.

I really like the look of this case. The frosted translucent effect means it manages to look neat but also still a bit geeky at the same time. :) In particular, it lets you see the on-board LEDs, which some other full enclosures don't.

The design of the case certainly wouldn't suit everyone. It only gives access to the main connections round the edge, so you can't get to the GPIO inside without disassembling it (and I doubt all of the case would survive disassembly -- see below!). The plastic is also very thick, and there's no significant ventilation, so any intensive processor activity could lead to some overheating problems.

Unfortunately, the built quality isn't really very good. The main pieces fit together moderately snugly, but the material seems quite brittle so I don't think it would survive any significant impact. Also, the clips to hold it together are much too fragile, and half of them broke while I was trying to push them into place. I strongly suspect that any attempt to disassemble the case now will break the remaining clips. It's easy enough to improvise something to replace them though, so that's not a complete showstopper. However, it's also important to note that the case really doesn't hold the Pi firmly, so it has a tendency to rattle around unless you've got all the cables connected. Since the case is very hard, I think too much rattling could eventually damage some of the components.

All things considered, I think this case might be OK for some people. If you only intend to use the Pi for simple programming tasks, and you don't need access to the internals or any protection from rough treatment, then you might be OK with it. I'd advise anybody else to look elsewhere though. Personally, I'm going to try to stick with it for the moment, but fully intend to replace it sometime in the future.

First: Very fast delivery, to germany it took only 3 days.
Second: The case looked easy to build but the clamps to hold it together are really crap. You need 4, deliverd where 9 or so. I broke 5 of them by trying to build the case.

And of course the GPIO you can't reach!
Buy an other RPi case on amazon.

The case arrived quickly, and was found to be well made of good quality plastic. It was easy to assemble, and I particuarly liked the no screws feature. My only slight niggle is that when a memory card is in the slot it protrudes too far out making it vulnerable to accidendal damage. Still a very worthwhile purchase. Very pleased. Tony.
