The box looks great and seems tough enough to protect the Pi from wear and tear, but the screws used to put it all together seem to be just too short to reach all the way though the case, the circuit board and into the threaded holes on the other side.

This is good looking, solid case with built in heat sink. It is the best case I have seen for RaspberryPi 2. And the shipment to Finland was fast.

I was looking for a case for my new Raspberry Pi 2 and this was recommended. It is a lovely aluminium case, all the sockets on the Pi 2 line up perfectly, and the case looks great. Unfortunately, the case was clearly designed for the RPi Model B+ rather than the RPi 2 and the problem is that that the BCM2836 chip has been shifted a couple of millimetres from where the BCM2835 chip was on the B+. As a result the case’s built-in heat sink does not fully align with the BCM2836 and will not be able to cool it properly; and since there is a built-in heat sink, it is not possible to use a separate heat sink (at least not without modifying the case). As long as you don’t plan to over clock Pi 2 this is not a problem, but if you do want to over clock then you may want to consider a different case. Speaking personally though, I’m happy to keep the case and not over clock.

With built in heat sync this is a great case. Also the design is really nice so you can still see the leds from the side.

The FLIRC case for my raspberry Pi 2 feels and looks like a quality product. I'm very pleased with it and would thoroughly recommend it as an alternative to the cheaper plastic cases.

I'm glad you asked what I feel about it, because fifteen days after ordering the box I STILL HAVEN'T GOT IT! I did receive an item I hadn't ordered, and returned it, as instructed, paying the postage. There is a long pause in which nothing happens, after which I send an email wondering why. I get an answer, saying that my goods will be dispatched as soon as the goods shipped in error are received AND HAVE BEEN TESTED! Now I suppose the testing may take time, particularly as it would involve opening the unbroken bubble pack, but I do think it might have been appropriate, considering who was at fault, to have dispatched the correct item immediately, by express, with the apology and refund of postage, the moment the error was apparent. As it is, I am left wondering whether the returned item has gone back on the shelf, the matter closed, and whether I am faced with the problem of proving I sent it.
