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.
When will these updated cases be available?
I wil get my Pi in about a month and i want my case, when it arrives. I would really like a transparent case.. And it will have to be shipped to Denmark.
I really like your case and i think it's great that you support people through this forum.
How long should i wait before ordering? When will updated and transparent case be available?
It would suck to order it and then read that the new ones will be released the day after
Thank you in advance
