Bought from seller named TigeRetaiL_SLP. They did not provide heatsinks even though it mentioned so in the description. That was the whole reason for buying this product. Plastic seems cheap, and shouldn't be opened and closed too often. But for the price, I guess it's okay. Really upset about not getting the heatsinks.

1. Perfect fit with both Raspberry Pi 2 & 3.
2. Build quality is awesome.
3. Well priced as compared to other case options.

Verdict: If you are looking for a Pi 2 or 3 case, this is the best you can get at this price range.

The official case needs to be designed for better cooling of RPi. The memory controller on the rear has no space and beats up. Passive cooling needs to be improved. Active cooling is not required unless you live in a very high ambient temperature location.

Excellent build quality. The only con is the lack of any ventilation in this case. Raspberry Pi 3 considerably heats up inside of this case when playing 1080p video. However, I chose keep this case and mod it to include a fan and fit a heatsink on the SoC to alleviate the heat issue. And that's just because the build quality of this case far exceeds that of any other case available here in India.

The quality of materials is great. The 5 piece case is very neat.
Only downside. The bottom is flat but the top is curved. Therefore not possible to stack several Pi's together.

Cool looking case for Raspberry PI 3. Very easy to open and close. I have purchased it because I am not going to open the Raspberry frequently, so having this case will protect the board against accidental damages and dust. This case is very sturdy and handling Raspberry becomes comfortable as compared to using it without case, specially while connecting the cables and cards.

The product seems to be the original case from element 14. The top cover of the unit I got is just a bit loose but it doesn't affect the functionality of the case in any way. The seller(RPi Shop) did a good job of including small heatsinks for the SOC and the power management chips as they can go above 70 deg in Indian conditions. I took away one star only and only because the top cover didn't fit perfectly and it really drives my OCD nuts!

The case is perfectly suits to my Raspi-3. Though it is plastic, the quality is solid and sturdy. The board perfectly sits into it, no force required and there is no rattle sound. The free heat sinks may help to keep the Raspi cool. It is better to keep the top lid opened for better ventilation.

Received the case but free heat sink not included in the packet as specified in the item listing. So this is cheating with the customer.

The top lid is not perfectly locked. The lid is slightly humming while touched.
The package might be more protective and good looking.
There is no user manual which how to cabinatise and mount the rpi3. So new user will face a not-ignorable problem.
