Is there no cheaper way to get this shipped to the EU?

Indeed, shipping is very expensive. Best looking case to date.

Would have ordered (US Order) but $9.98 for shipping is too much for something that weights 0.16lbs little. Should have a USPS option. UPS is slow across the country and over priced.

This is a nice looking but at $16.42 it's a little on the expensive side especially when you consider its based on their AG-43 case which costs $4.65

I think it is a reasonable price, they have cut out all the ports with high quality, silkscreened port names onto it, and even put in light tunnels for the onboard LEDs. All that setup and new molds isn't free.

If you want to save money you can just buy the [url http://www.polycase.com/ag-43]AG 43 Case[/url], and then cut out the ports yourself. Seems like a fine deal.

That said, I would like a plain "square" case with equal size halves and curved edges for the RasPi if it was going to sit on desk or by a TV.

Word on the street is that they will sample you a case for free (not the slick RasPi ones, but the regular ones, AKA the AG-43). I bet you will come back for more if you are building a lot of stuff.

I personally am going for the AG-85 (5" x 7.5" x 1.75"), and a 5" LCD screen and Li-Ion battery pack with a USB Wifi, my Pi is going to be portable and have video game controls like a giant Gameboy Advance. Planning to run RaspBMC for a really nice Media Player :)

Go PolyCase! Highly Recommended.

I have one of these case, its nice, my complaint.

The light pipes have to much light bleed (each one flows to the other
The light pipes fall out VERY easy.

I colored the side of my light pipes with a black marker, this helped, but they still fall out.
Many Thanks
