Nice case – Raspberry PI Acrylic Case - Transparent Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
This is a pretty nice little case for the Raspberry Pi. The transparent plastic looks good. There are also little markings for the different ports, which is nice.
Cons:
The plastic scratches easily. The slot on the top for the GPIO cable isn't big enough to actually fit the end of the cable through, so it's pretty much useless. I can only use the case without the top. Even if I was able to get the cable through the hole, the stop still wouldn't be able to close with the GPIO cable plugged onto the GPIO headers. This is just a poor design. While putting the case together I accidentally snapped one of the end pieces off. It still holds together, but the fit was so tight that I had to force it to get it on.
Other:
Good value for the money.
Bottomline:
It's ok, but I probably wouldn't buy it again. If you want to use the GPIO cable, then this case is not for you. Otherwise it's pretty good.
