I have purchased several different purpose-designed Arduino enclosures, but none are as perfect as this. The Arduino fits perfectly inside (no rattle when the enclosure is closed), is held in place by the plastic pins that also align the top and bottom sections. The access port where the USB connector is has a slider that allows for open access for shields. There's a removable 'door' over the 'battery area' as well. The price is nice, and isn't so cost prohibitive that I'm unwilling to modify it to fit my needs exactly. If a spacer (to go between the top and bottom sections) could be made allow for stacks of shields, or other options, this will become as utilitarian as the Arduino itself. I plan to buy one of these enclosures for every Arduino I own, and every new one I purchase in the future.

This doesn't fit the ethernet shield r3. I have to find another enclosure that does. I should be able to use this for another project, but it isn't what I had in mind.

This box has no screws to keep the box closed. Also the doors for the battery require a screwdriver to pry open. There are tall prongs that the board and the top line up on. It will not be long before they are broken. The box is sturdy and a great idea but not very well executed. V2 will be the one to get. You could do a lot of this with a project box but not the same fit. It needs to be glued to stay closed or something. It is probably worth the price for an internal application being that it fits the board nicely just be careful...

This is the perfect enclosure for many Arduino projects. It fits both the Duemilanove and Mega boards with room for an attached shield. The top has a removable insert to allow access to an attached Ethernet Shield and a removable "door" for battery access. Highly recommended.

It's a nice little enclosure. Arduino Uno R2 and R3 boards fit well. However, this case, designed to hold the ethernet shield, needs some slight modifications. The Ethernet R3 version has the additional SCL and SDA pins, which does not give enough clearance for the upper half mating receptacle.

Some notes:
-My version does not natively fit the Duemilanove; there is a hole in the board, but it is too narrow. You could expand it with a dremel, and it would fit. The UNO fit beautifully.
-A proto shield seems like it would fit, but encounters the same hole issue.
-Even without a shield, the UNO fit in wonderfully.
-THIS IS NOT A GOOD PLATFORM FOR DEVELOPING A PROJECT. If you have a project you want to enclose, this would be tops.
-Some reviewers mentioned it not holding closed, I haven't had that issue.

Pros:
-Fits arduino with proper pass throughs.
-Made to work with an ethernet shield.
-battery compartment

Cons:
-Sort of expensive; the plastic isn't cheap, but isn't of superior quality either
-Doesn't fit all arduinos (if one of the 3 'mounting' holes is smaller than the others, it won't work)
-no mounting options on the enclosure
-battery bay very hard to get into.
-No pass throughs for sensors (Though you could use the ethernet punchout if you aren't using an ethernet shield. The plastic seems like you could drill/cut your own fairly easily)

This box is a decent container for an Arduino. Only complaint is the price. Just a little steep for a simple plastic container. Would buy from seller again.

I got this box today, I am happy with it. My Arduino UNO fits into it very well. It won't move inside the box. pretty safe. There are still more room for the shields there.(The shield is the boards which can be plug on the Arduino UNO to expand its function)

If you just have the UNO, then I guess it's a four star product (five if it wasn't $11). But like others said, the Ethernet shield won't fit correctly unless someone makes the right adjustments. I had to take a Dremel and take off the plastic that covers the top of the ethernet port. Even after that, the whole cover seems like it squeezes on the two boards. So I might have to shave off the plastic from the posts that helps snap in the cover. But I do admit, the bottom portion of the box does a good job as a holder for the boards.

The title pretty much says it all. The box has nice, solid feeling construction and will probably work well for most projects. The Uno and the Mega fit perfectly. Unfortunately, I only bought this so I could put an Uno and an ethernet shield inside but the top doesn't fit with the shield installed. I think I can get it to work if I modify the box with a Dremel but is is disappointing that it doesn't work as described as using an ethernet shield is one of the selling points of the box.
