Very sturdy indeed.
on 19 January 2014
I'd tried a couple different clip-together cases for my Pi before, but was never particularly happy with them, always seeming rather flimsy. This screw-together case is a huge improvement. I can take my Pi with me in my bag now without any concern that the case will pop open and leave the board exposed to damage.
The Pi fits snugly inside the case, the cutouts for the ports fit so well that it seems the case and the Pi were designed together from the outset.
The light pipes for the LEDs are a nice touch, and in fact provide for the only point I have that even approaches a criticism... The indicator LEDs on the Pi are pretty bright by themselves, but somehow bringing them to the surface through the light pipes makes them nothing short of dazzling! Maybe a slightly LESS transmissive medium could have been used, as even a glance at the indicators whilst in use leaves spots dancing in front of the eyes!
In summary, absolutely the best and most secure case I've had for my Pi thus far, wholeheartedly recommended.
