    Has anyone purchased square trades 2 year ipad warranty against spills drops and hardware damages for their ipad. For 100 bucks your ipad is covered. Please discuss your thoughts, concerns, and experiences.

    Yes, and this has been addressed in multiple threads. Bottom line. SquareTrade seems to be a very good alternative to AppleCare.

    I just got the one year...
    if anything happens ill get a new ipad for
    50 (deductible) + 46 (policy) + 42 (tax)
    150... not bad for a $670 product....
    One thing that bothers me is theft... How do you prove that?
    Police report? I mean how do you make sure ppl are not abusing the system?

    AppleCare does not cover accidental damage/breakage. SquareTrade does. Neither covers loss due to theft, though SafeWare even covers that (though it's more expensive than SquareTrade so you have to decide if you think the extra money for theft/loss coverage is worth it.)

    As for finding the other threads, you see at the top of the page where one of the options says "Search"? Click on that, type "SquareTrade" in the box, and on the right select the "iPad" forum, and then hit return. All the threads discussing SquareTrade's iPad warranty are right there.
