I’ve recently received a couple of these (and have more in transit):
After attempting to install the board with the official PoE hat, I’ve discovered that the PoE hat doesn’t actually fit. The Pibow 4 case has the cutouts for the PoE pins on the RPI4, but it doesn’t have the cutouts required for the actual PoE module to sit on top of the board. There are three electrical components on the underside of the PoE hat that hit the clear perspex layer and prevent the Hat making contact with all of the required pins.
Did anyone in QA actually test the PoE hat installation with the Pibow 4 case prior to launching the product? It seems like an embarassing oversight.
I’m pretty disappointed, the website link above states that this case is “Fully HAT Compatible” yet it actually isn’t - especially if it isn’t compatible with the stock RPI parts.
Is this a known problem?
