The £12 case is excellent.
This case really is far and away better than any other case in seen or used, honestly, I would happily pay twice this.
It does look gorgeous but with the cables hanging out it won't look as nice

Cable management is left as an exercise for the reader.

I use one of these as a 'main pc' when I want to do focused work, honestly, with cable ties and good positioning, it still looks good.

It's not just looks though, it's a solid little unit with nice weight and the case acts as a heat-sink. When plugging in USB or HDMI, there isn't flex in the box, or the lid popping off like in plastic cases. I will say that since the pi removed the spring loaded sd reader, getting cards out can be a hassle but since 3b I have been using a low profile USB drive to load the OS.

How do raspberry pi's hold up using as a media centre for Netflix, Amazon and streaming live tv?

Average. Used to be very good and hasnt got worse, it's just there are better options now. I have about 8 pi's I don't use any as a media centre, since I got a shield.

Apologies, i answered the question 'how is this as a kodi box' - not what you asked.

for netflix and amazon, it won't* do it. Streaming live TV? over local network from a box with a dvb card/stick or even from itself with a dvb stick - no problem, be prepared to get down and dirty with tvheadend though



*possibly will with some hacking around, but it will be in broswer and horrible

Basically they're knocking the p&p off. I do love a good deal but it smacks a bit when they slap on p&p. I know it's not free to send stuff but it still hurts my wallet.
Merkins and their aluminum upto no good!
It would be good if they re-routed/covered the ports the same way the RetroFlag cases do.

The little MegaPi case is great because of that: it routes the power, audio, HDMI and ethernet to the back, 2 USB to the front and covers the other 2 USB and SD in hatches at the side - Even includes a safe shutdown and reset.

I HATE this about mine. I have to get a blade to sort of pick at the surface of the card to pull it out of the slot.

Could just stick a bit of tape on it as a tab I suppose, but it's still annoying. A little recess so I could pinch the end of the card is all it would take.

Is that really a fair comparison though? They’re quite a bit different in price. I use 2 of these around the house connected to a central kodi library and it works really well. Inclusion of CEC so the tv remote controls it makes it very seamless. Only downside of the pi as a kodi box is its inability to output HD audio if you have remuxes.
