Rainbow Pibow + MicroSD

by msfwebdude on Thu Nov 08, 2012 2:47 pm

I have been trying to buy the Adafruit Pi Box and/or the Adafruit Pibow for my Raspberry Pi and they have been in stock and out of stock and sometimes so quickly. So I bought the Rainbow Pibow instead.

Originally I thought it was kind of too colorful or too kid-like or too rainbowey. I was also worried about the extra space the MicroSD card adapter takes and if it would fit.

Last night I put it together. The Low-profile microSD card adapter for Raspberry Pi does come in contact with the bottom plate and makes removing the adapter as a whole not practical, BUT removing and reinserting the actual microsd card itself is relatively easy with the entire unit assembled. And in real life the Rainbow Pibow looks great, I am liking it very much.

Very happy with the product.
