Matching RasPi, HDD, & USB Hub cases?

Tue Jun 18, 2013 7:01 pm

Ok, I've searched and searched and have been unable to find an answer so I'm just going to ask.

I'm looking to set up a Retro Game/Media Center build using a RasPi, a 2.5" USB HDD, & a USB Hub (Probably four port, maybe seven). I'm kinda OCD when it comes to stuff matching so I'd really like to find a set of cases & hub where everything goes together perfectly. Does such an animal exist? Are any of the companies that are producing RasPi cases also producing matching USB HDD cases and USB hubs?

Not actually in production yet, but this might provide a solution : http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 40&t=29667

Yup, saw that one. Not quite what I'm looking for, though. I'm really surprised at how difficult this is to source. I've been looking for external hard drive enclosures that are made from similar materials to available raspberry pi cases, USB hubs, etc... color isn't a big deal since I'd be fine with primary colors, but I can't find anything that would look decent as a set. Very frustrating.

ProtoArmor makes a nice line of project cases.
They just recently introduced a nice addition for the RPi.

I'm only wearing black until they find something darker.
