What are the reasons to get this case for my Raspberry Pi?
This Raspberry Pi case protects your board and looks fantastic. It is a well-designed, attractive case that is uniquely made up from nine layers that stack on top of each other. You do not need to use any tools when assembling this case around your Raspberry Pi, because it uses nylon bolts. It can also be easily disassembled whenever you wish. The Pibow case securely contains your Raspberry Pi in one solid block and is well ventilated to prevent overheating.

Each layer is made from high quality cast acrylic, and the transparent top layer lets you view your Raspberry Pi board and its LED indicators. These layers, as well as the holes for the external connections and the etchings for the logo and port labels, have been laser cut to size. The multi-layered style and colour of this case will add some flare and elegance to your Raspberry Pi unit.

Is it well suited to different Raspberry Pi projects?
This Pibow Case is ideal for a housing a number of Raspberry Pi projects. At only 92g, it is a lightweight solution to protecting your board. This light weight makes it the ideal unit to mount on a vertical surface.

Protecting your Raspberry Pi does not mean compromising its connectivity to USB devices, networks or displays – because the case leaves all of the primary ports accessible. This includes a camera slot on the top of the Raspberry Pi case and space for a ribbon cable to be connected during assembly.

As this case is made of acrylic plastic, you can modify your board by sanding down one or more of the layers. This allows you to continue to use the case, even with a particular project that does not fit into the Pibow Case.

This case is compatible with Raspberry Pi model B version 1 only. For the B+ and Version 2 or model A please click here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little case, very easy to assemble. One thing to note, this does not have a slot for the Camera module ribbon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case. Easy to assemble - looks cool and runs cool thanks to the case vents. There is no better case for the Raspberry Pi/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fantastic case for the pi, it fits perfectly (the PCB doesn't move at all), plenty of airflow and all ports are easily accessible. A bit psychedelic, but I gather you will be able to mount it on the back of your TV using additional "slices". At this price it's a steal!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My wife bought me a Pibow case for my Raspberry Pi which is perfect, except that the supplied nylon screws are too short. So it is, for the moment, held together by elastic bands, until I can find some suitable screws - or until I can get Pibow to send me some!
