Wish you were not EOL for this, or replaced with a v2 same price point

This is a great maker product that does not have any of the extras and at a price that works for resale. Other core products are too expensive for my needs so looking at other providers. Please extend or make a metal v2 core version

M5 Stack Aluminum is awesome!

This is my 3rd M5 Stack and like the other 2, this one is awesome! I love the aluminum case. It is super sharp and elegant. It makes all my projects look so professional and it has all the M5 computability and functionality. I love all the M5 products - they are all really well made.

Perfect product excellent performance

A nice product, do really what expected, A nice design for a nice M5Stack birthday!!

M5Stack Basic Core with Aluminum Alloy Enclosure (Limited Edition)

Very nice M5Stack version - I like it a lot. And yes, WiFi range is weaker (as described) due to the special case, but since I use it with COM.X modules or LAN base (with WiFi off anyways) it doesn't matter for me.
