I use this case to house my ColorMunki Photo calibration equipment. I didn't use the pick and pluck foam tho, I'm using Trekpak division system for a neater look. I'm not sure if I trust this case to offer the same protection as the bigger models because the fitting isn't right. Both cases have a curved top lip that doesn't quite meet the bottom half of the case so you can see the inner black weather sealing and that makes me nervous. Also the locks are very thin and is a bit painful to wedge a finger in to pry them open even with the smallest of hands. All and all I'm happy with them, they do their job and look great too.

I use this small case to store and transport several USB2.0 VGA Video Cards and VGA Cat5 Extenders.
This case is great for storing or transporting small electronics.
The latches seem to be a little on the weak side, but seems to hold the lid on tight enough to close and make the seal.
I would purchase this case again.

    Comments about 1150 Case with Foam (Black):

    I bought this case for my Black Magic Video Assist. You can see in the photos that the 1150 holds the video monitor, 3 stacked Canon batteries (plus one attached to charger), a couple small HDMI cables and power adapter for the unit; I keep a microfiber cloth above the padding in the lid for the screen. Although it's a tight fit and there is some resistance closing the lid it ensures that nothing will move around in transport. For the price and size of this Pelican case it's hard to beat. Could be a little bigger but what couldn't?!

        Ordered 10 cases. They are great. Fast shipping. Secure packaging, although it would he hard to hurt a pelican case.
        Great overall experience.

              As always, Pelican cases are super tough, waterproof and lightweight. They have updated the latches so they are easier to open. That is a very nice feature.

              Pelican products are the best.
              Don't hesitate to order one of these.
              B&H has the best price going. No need to look any further.
              You will not be disappointed

                I have bought several of these and converting them as battery boxes for my long time lapse shots(GoPro) While drilling through the case voided the warranty(duh) I have not had a problem with leaky seals, etc. And i am confident that I will not have any problems with these fine cases so long as I keep them in good order as per the instructions state. The foam inserts are great, they keep my batteries snug and safe from the jostling I give them as I get therm to the field and back again. The latches snap shut, keeping the elements out and has an hole for small Masterlock locks which keep my batteries safe from prying eyes. Overall a very great product. Five Stars and it deserves every star!

                        This is a very useful little case. I have fitted it for 4 Pocket Wizard Transceivers. I always buy Pelican when I need a durable, sealed case to protect my gear. The blue color is actually kind of cool and helps me spot my transceivers amongst a pile of black cases.
