What can this case do?
This case consists of eleven unique layers, which secure and protect your Raspberry Pi. You won’t lose any connectivity once the case is applied, as all of your ports still accessible. A custom top layer lets you fit in your PiTFT+ 2.8-inch or 3.5-inch screen easily and securely. There’s no need for any soldering or gluing, as the case fits together without the use of tools. If you’re using the larger PiTFT+ screen the mounting holes on the side of the PiTFT board break off cleanly for a smooth fit.

Why would I need this case?
The PiTFT+ lets you see exactly what you are doing on your Raspberry Pi and includes a touch screen interface for programming. Using the Pibow case, you can turn your Raspberry Pi and PiTFT+ into a smart and stylish looking minicomputer or media player. You can also mount your Pi wherever you want with no need to connect to a computer, keyboard or mouse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This isn't compatible with the TFT screen sold by Maplin I bought this on Wednesday together with the PiTFT (http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/adafruit-pitft-assembled-320x240-28-inch-touch-screen-for-raspberry-pi-a88qn), they arrived on Saturday. The case seems to fit the raspberry pi model 3 really well and is a sort of multi layer sandwich you put together, but you have to have a screen as there is no top plate. On trying to fit the TFT screen, it is offset a bit which means it pokes out between the sandwich and in addition, the faceplate doesnt fit even if you cut the end off one of the layers. You can not use this case with the 2.8" TFT Raspberry screen sold by Maplin and the Raspberry Pi Model 3. There is a second faceplate which i guess is for the 3.5" screen, you can use that but it leaves massive gaps in the top.
