This is just plain stupid. I love my ivod SP for 100 dollars but paying another 140 dollars for the same case just with silver things covering the screen and wheel is just retarted. Vaja got a bit carried away on the pricing for this case.

Wow, nice case.  But like an earlier poster stated for an extra $10 you can buy another iPod.  I doubt this will be a big seller.

Well, you could look at it this way…a human body has about $20 to $30 worth of elements and chemicals, yet we have no problem wrapping them in gawd-awfully expensive garments, kinda like the Helly Hansen ski shell I still don’t believe I just bought…

Nobody said chic is supposed to be cheap. Fact is, expensive is what makes tres chic the thang it is.

Still…I’d rather use MY $240 towards one of those Wiis.

So what’s the big deal?  They’re still $100 cheaper than the Vaja Crystal.  smile

Haven’t you seen houses that have more valuable furnishings than the house is worth? How about cars that have more accessories than the cost of the car? This is the same thing…It’s a matter of preference.

this is crazy..  even if a human body is made out of 30 bucks worth of chemicals, i would like to see you make any body part with that money.  some house do have more valuable furnishings than the house is worth but is any ONE SINGLE piece of furnishing more expensive than the house itself?

unless you are filthy rich, i don’t see average joes like me going for a case that expensive.

Aren’t the complaints here kind of missing the point?  Clearly someone who pays this kind of price cares about it more as a fashion accessory - it’s not like they are thinking “hrmm, this is almost the price of a new iPod, it isn’t really the wisest financial decision to purchase it”. 

Really, complaining about the price of this seems like complaining about the price of just about any high priced luxury fashion accessory; there are people who buy $1000 purses when a $20 purse would do the same job.  It’s just about style, fashion, luxury goods, etc.

I guess I don’t understand Vaja, I mean, do they make any cases that aren’t an incredible eyesore? Every one of them looks really tacky. They make ugly cases and charge you an arm and a leg? How are they still in business?

Maybe Paris Hilton has this case.  I can’t afford one.  No one is arguing, just pointing out what seems like a ridiculously high price for a case.  Often, the super wealthy don’t care about the cost.  Even the not-so-wealthy who are concerned about style don’t care about the cost.  For those of us wrapping our iPods in $20, $30, even $40 cases for protection, this case is obviously not for us.  I think I paid $9 for the skin for my nano and I hesitated spending that.  I’d have to work a week to buy this case.  I’ll wrap mine in a gym sock before paying $240.  I won’t look cool at the mall, though.  Hahaha.

Betcha Vaja doesn’t either. Just ‘cause it’s posted here on ilounge doesn’t mean it’s meant to be targeted to everyone.
