Great, a handle which can be easily ripped out of your hands while openly displaying that you are holding a very expensive piece of electronics. Oh, and it will only cost anywhere from 36-60% of the actual product it is supposed to be protecting.

This is EXCESSIVE! I would log this up to the school of thought “They paid $500+ for an iPad, they will surely pay $300+ for this very basic add-on”. Fleecing is NOT cool.

Not only does this look ridiculous, but I was glad I wasn’t eating/drinking while I saw that price tag or I might have choked.
Who in Steve’s World is going to trot around with one of those?  And previous comments are dead-on.
LOL, really.

Since you have to put it together yourself, what happens if one or two of ther screws eventually pry themselves loose and—whoops!—there goes the handle, and there goes your iPad, giving into the laws of gravity.

Seems like a nice case for $30.  Best of luck selling this thing for $300… :-)

I clicked on the link because surely that was a typo and its really only $30, not $300.

After clicking the link and confirming that it is indeed $300…Colorware, crack is not a recreational drug.
