This is a very well made case and comes with all the bolts/nuts to assemble, including a little spanner.
The bolts are plasticy, but they do the job well.
It doesn't come with instructions, but it isn't hard to figure out how to put it together.

One thing though, is that the screen rests on a PCB (on the GPIO pins), and the case doesn't support that PCB, so it is NON-SUPPORTED!, so do not put lots of pressure on it.
Apart from that, not a bad case.

I'm slightly disappointed here. I love the Pi, and the PiTFT screen, what I don't like is the way this case integrates with them. The screen is mounted on a PCB which is supported only by the GPIO pins on the rPi. I had hoped that the case would come with some other support for the PiTFT, but it doesn't. The screen just sits there, and once you've fitted the tactile buttons onto the PiTFT, they become difficult to press as the PCB bends. Solved this myself by popping some nylon nuts and bolts in to prop the screen up.

All in all, it's fairly good. If you won't use the buttons then it's probably the ideal product for the job, since you've no need to put any real pressure on the screen.

This is for an earlier B, not B+ and there is a connection strip just by the audio jack. After mulling it round for a while, I found that with some judicious use of side cutters I could remove the offending parts, and my Pi now looks very like the one in the picture for the product. It was for sensible mounting of the 320x240 display that I wanted it.

Now with a battery supply and wireless keyboard and tracker ball I have a very portable device.

The spare USB port also gives me wifi access and I find using this small Pi fun.

Nice case, but a bit fragile. Also, where the TFT is placed could use a bit more of work so the TFT + buttons should be the only one accessible (eg: the board should not be exposed). But the cost/benefit on this is good.

And it looks nice when the board is on and the leds light up the case :-)

Interesting way to make a case, from stacked sheets of acrylic, which seem to be laser-cut, and certainly fit well. A small spanner made of the same material, also beautifully laser cut, is supplied to tighten the screws.

Excellent all rounder layered case for your PI.
In my application tactile push buttons are lightly protruding above the top edge.
Make sure, you secured your PTFT screen firmly as the rim holds only screens PCB.
