    Comments about 1730 Transport Case with Foam (Black):

    This case is great!
    I'm using it to travel my iMac (27") in it's own box.
    So I didn't pluck out the foam to form fit.. but it's great to have
    that option if I choose to later.
    It's built very strong and reinforced.
    I love the latches.
    The case rolls easily.
    My computer is the most secure it's been in shipping

        We transported some monitors for a merchandise table across the country in a tour bus. This withstands repeated loading and unloading, packing and unpacking. It traveled very well when taken on an airplane as checked baggage.

        Really worth the price.

        Great case and extremely well built. However, would have liked a little higher quality foam insert. Once partially perforated, these pull apart blocks separate quite easily.

        Comments about 1730 Transport Case with Foam (Black):

        So i put my imac in its original box inside of this and checked it on a plane from san diego to philly. I was weary of this, but it was my only option. Needless to say it made it there and back with no problems. I watched it being tossed on a conveyor belt thinking I was screwed.... but nope, the case is a beast and super strong! I highly recommend this case for anyone needing assurance on carry their gear!

        Please note you must be pretty strong to wheel this around when filled up. Mine weighed 78lbs and was kinda tricky get too and from some place and lifting it into the back of a car.

          This case is built like a rock and much bigger than I expected. Extremely strong construction and is a little heavy even empty, however it does have roller wheels that make it easy to transport. Latches are strong and foam interior is easily adjustable. Great product!

              I use this case for three heads and accessories including umbrellas, grid spots, barn doors and wires. I love how I can perfectly arrange everything and that there is extra area to store supplies thanks to the depth of the product. It's secure and I don't have to worry about anything getting damaged during transport.It's a little big and it might be better with different wheels, but overall a fantastic product. I will continue buying Pelican cases when I need them in the future.

                        I need to travel with my 27" iMac on certain projects that require horsepower for video editing--times when a Macbook Pro just won't suffice. So I needed something to ship it in. This pelican case can fit the box that the iMac originally came in, with a little room to spare at the end. I'll be flying with this, so it's important for me to know that the iMac is going to arrive safely. It's quite large, and I'm probably going to have to pay extra for oversize/weight. But I'm a pro and my work depends on it.

                        I use the product to pack eletronics equipments. This is perfect for that.

                        Comments about 1730 Transport Case with Foam (Black):

                        I bought this to transport a 27inch iMac on planes and such. If you take out all the foam, and place the iMac in it's nice and safe factory box, it fits perfectly in the pelican case. There is even a small bit of room left for peripherals or hard drives.

                        If you love this computer, hate laptops, and are serious about setting up your workstation in the field. This is the way to go. Sure the case is rather large, and a bit on the heavy side, but it's worth it if you need it.

                        Any other custom case will cost you more than double the price of this pelican.

                        Yes you will more than likely pay overweight fees when checking in this case on flights. But if you are considering this item, chances are that you are a professional, you really need it, and you can probably expense it ;)
