Frustration for you, joy for others. There's nothing frustrating about other cheaper cases, just need a bit of imagination. Modding cases is half the fun of being an `Enthusiast`, and while a CaseLabs case is great... they've already done everything conceivable. And while I love the M8+Ped that I bought, there's nothing to really do to it as it's all been done, I also love my Define XL, TJ07, 800D, 650D's equally. And quite honestly I probably wouldn't have gotten my M8 if it wasn't used and I had gotten it for as cheap as I did. Sure it's a great case, amazing quality, and feature rich, but not much left for a user to add to it.
Then there's the size footprint. Not everyone has a big enough place to put one. I know if my closet wasn't empty my M8 would be sitting in the middle of my room.
