Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

The quality of this case is outstanding. This case is perfect for flying with. The airlines can beat the hell out of it and your stuff comes out the other side without so much as a scratch. And the $[*] price tag is the best I could find. They shipped this to me in just two days with the regular shipping. You just can't beat this deal.

    Comments about 1500 Case with Foam (Black):

    I used the case to protect a mobile projector. I was able to fit the projector, remote control and cables into it. For the Pick n' Pluck foam, start out with a small area first. You can always rip more of it out later.

    bought two of these cases to fill with Optoma Projectors. The projectors fit great after removing the pull-out foam. Anyone with professional gear that needs to travel must have some of these cases.

                  I'm a freelance traveling photographer and this is the best case I've ever used. It's durability is phenomenal! I don't have to worry about anything getting broken in transit. I can securely lock it up when I need to check it on planes. It has enough space for both my cameras, external flash and three main lenses. Definitely a great buy in my opinion.

                            I love pelican. So many options, durable and a great buy. If you spend thousands of dollars on gear, a few hundred to make sure you have everything protected is smart. Not to mention they keep you from misplacing gear and are easy to move when you are going from vehicle to vehicle or location. This will be my 5 case and I always budget for a good case when I am buying any gear.

                                These things are indestructible, and slick looking to boot. Love them, and I'm starting to think of more things I can store in cases so I can have an excuse to buy more.

                                  Pelican cases are the best! I feel great knowing that all my expensive gear is completely safe inside. The pick n pull foam is also a lot of fun to arrange. I would recommend Pelican cases to anybody looking for complete assurance that their gear will be protected in rain, mud, snow, sand, probably even a tornado. A+
