Raspberry Pi – Clear Case

Raspberry Pi – Clear Case
· ·

In my previous blog post on Raspberry Pi, I mentioned that I can’t seem to find any cases for Raspberry Pi on Elements 14, but now it seems that they do carry it.

I bought my Raspberry Pi – Clear Case from Michael Cheng (as he bought an extra case from Elements 14). I paid S$16 for it (including shipping and 7% GST).

Bought the Western Digital My Passport Carrying Case from Changi City Point’s Challenger for S$9.90 (member’s price is S$8.90).

I am using the My Passport Essential (2011) and Li Xiang is using the My Passport Essential (2012) and the carrying case fits the harddrive just fine along with the USB cable.

Bought the Case-Mate Waddler Penguin Case (Black) For iPhone 4/4S (Amazon link) from Amazon for Li Xiang as her birthday present! She likes penguin and I can’t find any penguin iPhone cases beside this one from Case-Mate.

It cost US$24.99 (S$31.63) and shipping to Singapore is an additional US$7 (S$8.85), and hence I paid a total of US$31.99 (S$40.49) for it. I ordered on 5th October 2011 but due to it being out of stock after I placed my order, I only received it on 24th October 2011.

I have been searching for a case to protect the back of my iPad 2 and it must work with Apple’s Smart Cover. I chanced upon this thread, Smart Cover Compatible Cases List, in MacRumors which came in handy.

I did some research myself and the availability of those covers in Singapore and I came to a conclusion that the SwitchEasy CoverBuddy is the most value for money and it will definitely be available in Singapore.

Got the TuneWear IceWear iPod Nano 6G for my iPod Nano 6G from DG Lifestyle Store at VivoCity. It cost S$28.00 and it is totally not worth it!

The packing comes with 2 screen protectors and the silicon cover for your iPod Nano 6G. The screen protector scratches way too easily and the silicon cover is not an exact fit, I find it rather too big for the iPod Nano 6G. Too bad there is no better case out there yet.

Received my Apple iPhone 4 Bumpers (Black) from the iPhone 4 Case Program today. It was shipped on the 20th August 2010 and it took about 5 days to reach me. The Apple iPhone 4 Bumper is retailing for US$29.

I can’t really find anything special about the bumper besides the metallic material used for the volume controls and power button. It does not protect the back which is major disadvantage.

Bought the SwitchEasy Nude for iPhone 4 at VivoCity’s Best Denki for S$32. Not much iPhone 4 cases to choose from since the iPhone 4 has only been launched for less than 2 months.

SwitchEasy Nude is essentially a 1mm thin casing made from GE Lexan polycarbonate material. It is so thin that I almost broke it when I tried to take it out after placing my iPhone in it. I heard numeroes complains that once you drop *touch wood* your iPhone 4 with the casing on, the casing will crack.

LArobe 2Color Netbook Sleeve Review

The be.ez LArobe Netbook Cases is available in 5 colors, namely, Black & White, Blue, Green, Pink and Red for the 10.2″ models. It’s dimension 26.6cm x 19.2cm x 3cm and it weights 172 grams which is about the same weight as the Cool Bananas Netbook Envelope Case which I reviewed few days before.

The sleeve is made in a soft, shape-memory material using Low Resilience Polyurethane (LRPu) technology and the thickness of the form is 5mm and it also features and inner lip for maximum protection. This will absorb significant amount of knocks to your netbook. I believed (not tested) that it will also reduce the impact on your netbook if you drop it a low height.
