Clusterboard/Modules shipment arrived in a bag
#1
My new clusterboard and 7 modules arrived today in a DHL bag. Within the bag was a cardboard box that had been crushed out of recognizable shape. Thankfully the clusterboard itself was well wrapped and the 7 computer modules were so small and compact that they avoided damage. I am both amazed that the hardware was undamaged given the poor condition of the enclosing cardboard box. I am posting about this because I would like to encourage the company to make better arrangements when shipping that much value to a customer. On the bright side, I am thrilled to receive the parcel and looking forward very much to powering it up and programming it. I am sorry now I didn't purchase a baseboard as well because brining the modules up headless for the first time will be harder than it would have been if I could have attached peripherals to watch the startup sequence. I ordered an enclosure from a community member as well.  It is a very inspiring piece of technology. My imagination soars just looking at it. Smile

Sorry on the poor packaging and I have passed your comment to shipping team.

What enclosure did you get ? 

I am looking into getting an enclosure, but maybe a rack mountable one to go in my rack.
