 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

i know it's hard to answer, cause every project needs different sizing.
but i had an idea for an innovative project box design that i'm thinking to produce and sell.
so i would like to know what size should i offer first that most people need.
thanks everyone.

It would be nice to have a box in which the Arduinos fit. Problem is that you can't access the pins anymore. Maybe there is something to overcome this?

Biggest problem I have for most projects is that the standard size project boxes are too small to fit both a 16x2 LCD (horizontally across the shorter axis) and an arduino, and when you go the next size up, they're way too big.
