How much it cost?
This is the only available color? The box is nice, but with that color...

Pretty! More pics?

You might want to check you don't fall foul of the trademark rules using the trademarked logo (or something which looks that close to it): http://www.raspberrypi.org/trademark-rules - I'm not suggesting you are; just that it's worth checking before getting too many made and finding out you should have got permission.

This is a licenced enclosure and in accordance with trademark rules.

The colour is great. This photo snap doesn't do it justice - it's the correct raspberry pantone

Ooooo - nice!

I'm cool with Raspberry Pink - my manliness is not defined by the colour of my Pi ;)

I hear new batches of boxes will have latest text to reflect rev 2 board - in about 3 weeks. Interesting that this has access to the GPIO as well!

the recessing is a great idea knocking connectors and wrenching the board can be a worry

Can these be bought in the US while being shipped from within the US and how much are they?

Looks good, but the key item to me is this one: "It adds less than 10% to the cost of the device"
If I can really buy this for $3.50, that makes it the cheapest (solid, non-cardboard) case I've seen, and I'd certainly buy it. Color isn't a big deal, but even better if it comes in black, and/or white.

US Distribution plans are finalising (via MCM) and we can also support orders via our office in Chicago now. New stock will be available early October.

The picture shown is our our Rev A box, the B model box has the relevant screen print accordingly.

We've been hugely encouraged by the response to this box, and thanks to all those who placed orders already.

Looks neat. Do you have better real life pictures? Also, is this available in some webshop?

I bought one and it arrived this morning - and I must say I am impressed with the quality and design. The comparison is with another UK-built enclosure that I have had for some time now. In particular, I like the snap out sections for the usb and Ethernet ports - excellent when I am not using all the ports in my RaspBMC implementation.

Congratulations on being second "proper case" available, but first in quality and style.

6 quid... About $9.50 US. A little more than 10%, but for a fitted case with some nice design features, worth the investment. As soon as I have my Pi in hand, I think I'll be ordering one of these.
I'm only wearing black until they find something darker.

I bought two of these cases, arrived next day. Very impressed with the quality of the product, and I like the design as well.

Only minor niggle, I ordered one of each colour and received two raspberry ones, but that makes no odds to me.

I'd just like to say I bought one of these case last week and it is a really well built case. Cyntech are great to deal with I asked about feet for the case and was sent some a few days later.

The case is way better than my ModMyPi one.

Hello,

The case looks really nice! I am considering ordering one sometime in the near future...

One question that I have: Is the black case available seperately? I only see it bundled with cables.

Also, could we get pictures of the different case colors? I only see the pink and the blue...

Thanks!
