Jeez.
I wasn't implying that tests weren't made, but very obviously faulty cases were shipped out before the process was optimal. If it's only a small number and they can be replaced, not a big deal.

New Amiga 1200 cases availability

It's really annoying to get a case with this kind of quality because someone in the factory didn't bother to visually inspect it before they sent it out to resellers.

I wonder why I have never seen an original A1200 case with this kind of deformation/corrugations in the plastic? Because they did quality control.


In your situation it would probably be acceptable to not have to ship back your badly deformed case and just have them send you a replacement. I hope that is what happens. Shipping will be a lot to ship back a deformed case. Unless they refund that cost to you.

I'm chuffed to bits with mine.
I never expected it to be an exact replacement of the original, but the quality is good enough to convince me that it could have been manufactured by Commodore back in the day.
I suppose it’s similar to classic car restoration. Purists often spend thousands only on genuine OEM components to rebuild a car as if it was factory fresh. If that’s what they are looking for, then this Amiga case probably isn’t for you.
Though If you are looking for a rebuilt factory fresh looking Amiga, maybe with an non factory upgraded engine to improve daily life, then this Amiga case IS probably what you are looking for.

I had an issue with one of mine as it had scratches on the side, likely due to improper handling at the factory or the warehouse who did the packaging and shipping. Yes, perhaps they could have caught it if they manually checked every single case thoroughly before shipping them out, but even if they did, mistakes can still happen. In any case, they handled it very nicely and I quickly got a replacement chassis so I have nothing but good things to say about their quality handling.

I can see slight waving on the top lines of the case, but this is not something I have seen as an issue since you only notice this if you look closely. If you know about injection moulding, you would also know that it can be very hard to avoid these kinds of issues, particularly when you are dealing with a single large piece like this. Even the original A1200 chassis from C= have moulding problems - have you ever seen an original A1200 where the top and bottom case fits together properly on the left side? No, because none of them do.

@amenophis

Yes, totally agree.

You should relax now, it's possible for the rest of us to educate those who complain about where to go and what to.

Btw - I have yet to find a camera that manage to correctly capture the colour of the light blue case

That is mostly a lighting and camera calibration issue. And obviously the monitor showing the picture at the other end also needs to be correctly calibrated.

Have you tried taking it outdoors for a photo? I'd be interested to see it as I almost plumped for the light blue one...

My black one came out quite well. My only dilemma is what to put in it, transfer my board from my 1200 or Vampire stand alone. Good work.
