Not as cool as I was hoping

Just a simple dock for your Pi 400 including a screen and touchpad. Works as advertised, but doesn't seem to fit the Pi 400 quite as nicely as I'd like. I'm also more bothered by the lack of audio than I thought I would be. Not quite a laptop conversion kit, but it's close. A bit overpriced for the quality.

Overpriced

Still gave it five stars because otherwise it was satisfactory.

Only Half Excited

I think I spent way too much money for this. I fully expected that, for the price, the Pi400 should be included. I already have the Vilros Raspberry Pi LCD Carry Case and a BT keyboard (which I plan to scavenge for the screen). Since I got my annual bonus from work, I went ahead and bought the Pi400 after-the-fact, but in retrospect, I think I should have saved my money!

Prefect for my needs

I was in the process of building something like this manually when I got the notice on this product. I like the versatility as I plan to use this as an emulator machine for old games that need a keyboard. It works great. And although not an actual feature there is room under the keyboard for an ssd so other than a battery, this is a convertible computer I can easily move around and enjoy my retro gaming. It's a little pricy but it fully meets my needs.

Skip it!

Just received mine today. The packaging is nice, the carrying case is nice, but I am shocked at the quality of the dock itself. It is worth the price of the LCD plus some carrying costs. . It is made from flimsy ABS plastic and the Pi400 doesn't even snap into the dock. It just sits on top and will fall out if you turn the unit over. While I don't expect to use it upside down anyway, it still is a bit weird. I think I could have printed this on my 3d printer, and it would have been better quality. I have chrome books that I have paid less for that are 100x better quality. Certainly not worth $299, not even worth $199, The LCD isn't even touch screen. It is powered by a 12 v 3amp barrel connector wall wart. I feel that my Pi400 is going to be embarrassed sitting in this dock. I do not recommend that you buy this and search for another solution. Try again Vilros, I know you make some great stuff, this isn't one of those.
