Disappointed – Raspberry PI Acrylic Case - Transparent Reviews

This case is cheap and fits the Pi pretty well. All the ports line up as you'd expect for the most part. There's a hole above the processor to allow for heat dissipation.
The quality of the plastic is garbage and the design isn't thought out that well. The way the case fits together, there are slots and clips along the edges of each piece. Take a look at the screenshots others have posted... all of the slots are machined right at the edge of the plastic and break easily. For me, two of the plastic feet broke when putting the case together and now the case rocks on a flat surface. If I had broke two feet on the same side, that side would no longer stay on the case.
The pictures make it look like the case is clear, but the one I got was translucent. Not a big deal at all -- still looks pretty nice.
Spend a bit more and get a better case.
