    Comes in a recycled box with assembly instructions. Trivially assembled using the bolts and nuts (with spares!) and the tool. Solid construction. If you have a small GPIO board like a PiGlow it easily fits inside. I haven't yet tried with something larger like an arduino, though its advertised to support it.

    However, the I/O slots on the lid do not align, and there is none for the primary GPIO. There's no external access to it (e.g. no slot in the side for a ribbon cable). All the external connectors (HDMI, power, audio, ethernet, USB, microsd) are fine though. This makes it a great case to sit in the lounge as a media centre - it also looks very stylish. Probably not so good if you needed external GPIO access.

    I'd certainly give it 5 stars if they fixed the GPIO access.
