5This is by far the best Pi3 case you can get right now
By RobotWare
This is by far the best Pi3 case you can get right now. Nicely done

*** To make your own Red Led Power light ***

--- This Kit linked below has all the components needed to add Red Led Light
--- CanaKit Raspberry Pi GPIO Breakout Board / Cobbler Bundle (40-Pin T-Shaped - Assembled)
--- Aketek 50 PCS Jumper Wires Premium 200mm M/F Male-to-Female
* 1 Red LED
* 1 Red Jumper Cable
* 1 Black Jumper Cable
* 1 10K Ohm Resistor ( in the strip of 5 )
* Black Electrical Tape
* Hot Glue Gun ( Vastar Hot Glue Gun with 30 Pieces Melt Glue Sticks Melting Adhesive Glue Gun Kit for DIY Small Craft and Quick Repairs in Home & Office, 20 Watt )
* Soldering Iron ( Vastar Full Set 60W 110V Soldering Iron Kit - Adjustable Temperature, 5pcs Different Tips, Desoldering Pump, Stand, anti-static Tweezers and Additional Solder Tube for Variously Repaired Usage

--- Pics included to show steps ---
*** Keep in mind the Longest leg on LED light is the +Positive side
*** Using Red Jumper cable for +Positive, solder end to 10K Ohm Resistor
*** Solder other end of 10K Ohm Resistor to +Positive end of LED light
*** Using Black Jumper cable for Ground, solder that to the other leg of LED light (shorter end)
*** Connect other end of Red Jumper cable to spot 4 on GPIO of Raspberry Pi 3
( Diagram included for GPIO on Raspberry pi included with Kit above )
Pic included but on right side it's the 2nd and 3rd down from top 4-6
*** Connect other end of Black Jumper cable to spot 6
*** If it lights up, then proceed to wrapping each cable in Electrical tape, i then taped both sides
together but only after you wrap them independently to avoid contact with each other.
*** Using Hot Glue Gun to place and secure the cable and LED to hole. I used a small amount first under
the LED light to give it something to rest on, then proceeded to tack it down

That's it, and a Big thanks to Old Skool Tools for making this beautiful little case for us to enjoy ;)

5Neat!
By James
This case is really close to the mini nes classic edition that we all are trying so hard to get ahold of, well aside from the black stripe across the front and top by the vents. The screws take a little common sense to figure out. Just apply a little pressure when screwing them in and you are set. When properly configured it honestly feels like you could have bought this from a big box store as an official product from nintendo almost. The lid opening is amazing as well and from a distance it really does look nice. It'll get people talking as well when they see it.

Suggestions would be to add functioning buttons to the front as well as add that black stripe for cosmetics. Cool item and I have bought a couple for friends as well.

5Great Case for Retro Pi, as well as Great Customer Service.
By Gil From FL
This case fits the Raspberry Pie like a glove. Unlike the 3D printer cases, this case can pass as an OEM case. Well manufactured product. The case provides ample room for ventilation, as well as for adding items to the GPIO (e.g., led lights, fan, etc.). I had an issue with my original order and the seller customer service was outstanding. I will definitely be buying from this vendor again. Very satisfied with overall purchase and superb customer service.
