1ST REVIEW 08/04/2010I bought this case for some musical equipment I planned on carrying around. I underestimated the size of this thing. IT'S HUGE!!! I won't particularly be carrying this around much. The amount and size of the equipment I planned to store in here is not really that big in size, but combined would not all fit in the Pelican 1500 width and length wise. Basically I needed a case with the width and length of this case, but not so much depth. That is what makes this thing a goliath. But I am not going to base this review of my tailored needs. This case is super solid, super sturdy, and tight. The clamps are a little tough to open, but that not a con when you're storing expensive equipment such as microphones, which I am. Also, the perforated foam is great for making this case 'yours', but it can be a little messy and hard to plan out. It took me about three hours to get mine all cut out to shape for my microphones and preamps. I don't think I would ever want to do that again. It's a shame the depth is being wasted in my case. I may possible use the bottom for another set of microphones in the future, but right now it is serving its purpose, and taking up a lot of space doing it. lolI recommend this case for the protection of your electronics, but if you plan on traveling a lot and don't need as much space, definitely go for the smaller ones. UPDATED! 08/09/2014Ok. so as mentioned a couple years ago (4 years to be exact). . i was not fully utilizing the space of this case, and now have decided to downgrade to something smaller for my microphones instead. Hmmm. . what else can I use this for then. . ??? I KNOW!!! My JBL LSR305 Studio monitors!!! DOHHH!!! They dont fit!!! But why!?!?!?In looking at pelican's website for the exact dimensions, it claims to be 7. 99'' in depth (height). The depth of the speakers are 7. 28''. So why is the not even remotely close to being able to close with these speakers sitting inside them? Well. . it seems pelican is giving you the exact dimensions of the case itself. They are not accounting for their non perforated foam lid and base protection, which is odd, because these are not meant to be cut. They are meant to be in there and not taken out or altered. So why not account for this space deduction? I can imagine anyone that would want to store anything expensive in there without some sort of shock protection. I'm glad I found this out considering my circumstances as opposed to buying it based off the interior dimensions and then not having it fit and having to go though the headache of sending this behemoth back!Be warned when shopping for pelican cases! MAKE SURE you product has an ample amount more that the depth of your item you plan to store. I'd say at least 2 inches to account for their non perforated lid and base foam protector.
