Steve Imica aka ClusterUK

I am going to open ordering for next batch in the next few days, please be aware there are only a guaranteed 500 cases left for now for sale and nearly 250 on waiting list. This may seem to be just a marketing trick, but if you have followed my progress you will understand why. I am absolutely shattered with building these cases and I cannot turn this into a day job until Amiga ownership is out of the courts and settled finally. Been burned twice by Amiga, not doing that again.

So if you still need to decide if for you please read this amazing review, also note the ACA500+ potential with a graphics card and A1200 accelerator even though we had to modify next batch of board to make latest ACA500+ versions work (Not the ACA's fault).

Too bad no industrial production, Igor like, handcrafted love.
Sad cant afford one now, encourage everyone to get it. There is nuff space for almost any vision, while A3000 look is epic.

I have one for my a500+ and v2. Its not perfect but it is good quality and along with some extras it's great. I have the Zorro psu pcb which allows me to use a small pc psu. Also using the a500 keyboard in an external case.

Case alone is great, kudos for design, patience and KS!

I wonder what happens to idea of external Amiga USB keyboard, that would complement that case. Or be used with Vamp :)

Hoping to order one on Friday to do the exact same thing...

Stephen:

Ordering system now ready for next batch ordering. I gave those on the waiting list a couple of days head start but now all can order.

Please note delivery time is between 3 to 6 months depending on place in the queue, and I will shut down the ordering system in a couple of weeks or when reaching 500 cases.

I have about 100 cases still to ship from Kickstarter backers and they will be gone mid November and then a break.

Please watch this video as it will answer most questions and is only about 12 minutes.

I have a black one and really like it, just haven't finished my build yet. Due to woes with the Zorro II adapter and not realizing my X-surf-100 will not work without Buster, I'm switching it to an V600 setup. Thanks to orders opening up again I can order the back plate for the A600/A1200 and finish it.
