Cheap case, bright and elegant. The Pi slides in easily without hassle. The rounded edges make it easy to carry around and put in bags without damage.

Customer Reviews:

The case is of good quality and well-designed. There are clips to secure the Pi. This case comes well-packaged covered with plastic wraps. The windows for GPIO pins make the difference.  It makes those pins easily accessible and easy to plug and remove anything you will be connecting to it. Other similar cases just have the hole cut in that area and you have to pull on the wires to unplug rather than being able to grab the actual plug. Board fits nicely without problem and extra room for heatsinks too. It has mounting holes on the bottom which can be used to mount the whole thing.

Overall a great buy.
