Thanks .... I'll get one, I think!

I found a white Toshiba class 4 at Amazon Germany but the postage doubles its price.

If it is from a reputable UK seller, then please share your findings.

Thanks! :)

Still awaiting my NCSU red & white case ordered 29/6 for delivery in U.S. Perhaps since I'm posting this it will arrive today so I'll have to come back and eat my words!

Well, I've gone totally white - ordered white SD card and a white ethernet cable!

Perhaps I should rename the little marvel to Snowberry Pi ???

NCSU?

ModMyPi cases are being sent - I ordered mine 8 July and it arrived (in UK) a couple of days ago.

By way of a yardstick, I posted a small package first class from the UK to an address in N Carolina on 26 July and it still hasn't been delivered.

Yes, '82 and '95; go Pack! "NCSU" = "North Carolina State University" for those unfamiliar.

I did receive a bulk e-mail last week advising all June and the first week of July orders had shipped, but it just hasn't arrived yet.

I had a quick glance at the website - now your reference to "my NCSU red & white case" makes sense!

Received today. Case is fine; very slight movement of the board but less than I expected based on a few earlier posts. I'll be e-mailing sales though as another item (UK to US mains adapter) was not received.
Thanks,
John

I've noticed the rectangular recess inside the lid where the cut outs for the LEDs are and thought there maybe a reason for it.
I was thinking that it would be nice to have some injection moulded "light pipes" that fit in the cutouts.

Ordered my (raspberry red) ModMyPi case on the 14th August, delivered yesterday (21st). I'm in the UK.

First impressions are good - it's very robust and a pretty good fit (there's a little bit of wiggling when plugging in the ethernet cable or something into the USB ports). Monitoring for heat dissipation now: so far, so good.

Just got my hands on an all white version here in the US. I have a green one on order for my 2nd Pi :P. These are really well designed and made cases for the Pi. I posted a demo/review of my case: http://youtu.be/WpEOIrFHz9Q

I don't have my pi with me to measure for you, but I'm pretty sure you should be ok. As long as the heatsink is below the top of the Ethernet and USB ports you will be fine

Got mine last week. Looks great.

Feedback's been really positive so far, so thanks to everyone for supporting us! I think the main criticism highlighted is excessive tolerance in the vertical direction, hence some maraca like qualities on some boards.

We've listened (as we want people to be happy with their cases), and are currently working through this with the addition of a small bump on the internal side of the USB hood. This acts to hold the board in place via a slight pressure on the top of the USB port when the two halves are clipped together.

Feedback is always much appreciated, as it helps us to improve.

Other changes soon to be in effect include GPIO ribbon access via a side window and camera module access.

Cheers,

ModMyPi
Yeah, mine is a bit loose too. I wish I waited a lil bit longer for the updated case. But again, great case.

Hi

I fixed mine with a piece of plastic in the opposite corners glued to the lid.

Mine arrived yesterday, along with a RPi. Only 3 weeks to Brazil.
Fantastic case, quality stuff. And awesome customer service, quick and helpful.
It's late in the night, but I can't sleep until my RaspBMC is running! :D
