    Pelican 1470 reviews

    1470 Computer Case with Foam (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a plastic case...with foam Pelican cases are the best bang for the buck, I have them for all my camera equipment. Bought this one for my Macbook Air. Only complaint is: the pick and pluck foam is not layered, meaning if you pluck you lose the entire depth of the foam insert, leaving only the eggcrate foam on top and the flat foam layer on the bottom. Which means too much depth for a Macbook Air as it would float between the two layers rather than be snugly secured. So, I opted to NOT PLUCK, leaving the Macbook on top of the pick and pluck layer. It's so thin you can still close the lid without damaging the computer. As my mama always said: THINK BEFORE YOU PLUCK!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I want pelican cases for all my equipmen Perfect fit for my new 15 macbook pro. Great way to keep an expensive investment safe and make it last longer. I don't have to worry when I need to throw my laptop into the trunk of the car with the other equipment, the case keeps such a snug fit that I know there won't be any damage if jolted or shaken heavily. One thing that isn't so great is that the latches are difficult to open because of the rubber seal. You must hold the lid shut to easily flip the latches open.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nearly indestructible! This case is near b perfect for safely containing my 13 inch MacBook Pro, and keeping it from being damaged. The case is so rugged & impervious, not to mention sturdy, I'd wager i could drop it from a 3rd story window, or out of moving vehicle onto street concrete and the 'puter would be fine, without so much as smudge or scratch! ( Altho the case would probably pick up a few )! The O ring seal definitely keeps the dust out, so I can only conclude it probably would be water proof for certain amount of time, at least to deep end of swimming pool depth pressures, as well? It'd be hard to find a better built and designed case, for any amount of money. I'm pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rugged, and will fit a 15.6 Purchased this for use as a laptop case for a 15.6 Toshiba notebook. It just fits, with a row of foam around the perimeter. I was able to fit my charger, a portable HD, and a cordless mouse in the case, too. While using it this way doesn't provide as much padding around the edges, the convoluted foam on the lid keeps the notebook centered in the case. This is just what I needed, because I wanted a lower profile that the 1490 or 1495 series. The pick & pluck foam is easy to cut vertically, but I had some trouble cutting it horizontally. B&H was easy to order from, and fast to ship.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough as Nails, Yet Gentle Like a Kitten I recently traveled to a third world country and wanted to bring my new laptop along. But how to protect my baby? This Pelican case is perfect. It protected my investment over the course of a long journey. The environment that I lived in was not electronics friendly either--lots of dust, bugs and heat--but this case protected my sensitive equipment like a charm! The peace of mind that it gave me was, in and of itself, worth every penny that I paid. You'll never have to worry about throwing this bad boy for a loop. I heartily recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from super finnicky latches what can i say, a pelican case is a pelican case. very sturdy, locks on latches work perfectly, pick n' pluck foam is always awesome, and everything else people have said about pelican cases. the only problem is, the latches themselves are difficult to pull back enough to open the lid, because the pressure that everything inside the case puts on the lid causes the latches to stick in their grooves. not a huge problem, you just have to find something to pry the latches open with, but an annoyance nonetheless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case Pelican and B&H, a quality match. I always protect my laptops with Pelican cases, it's part of my purchase process. I bought this size for a 13 MacBook Air and it fits perfectly. The foam compresses enough that I left the majority of the foam intact, removing a portion for the power supply. The foam pulls apart cleanly and doesn't lose its shape. I've never looked at the warranty on these after all of these years and over 100 units purchased because I've never needed to. They are that good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I bought this product with foam, and also bought extra foam for other uses. Currently this case is used for transporting firearms on trips. Extremely nice.
