      VERY SAD


      I ordered this because I thought it would be great for my baby's therapy classes (they have apps for kids that help her learn) and for me to use Hulu/Netflix etc. I got the package in about a week on standard shipping. Time was good. It came in a basic box. Elevated on cardboard and a thin tight sheet of bubble wrap around it. It looked pretty well wrapped except for the rest of the box being empty. Anyways, so the first thing I notice is that it was not cleaned and full of fingerprints (I hadn't touched the screen at all yet). I turned it on and immediately THE WHOLE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN WAS GRAY AND THEN TURNED BLACK. PIXELS DEAD. Totally ruined my night. I found out I could exchange it for another Ipad at the store and they would price match. I will get it replaced today but I am unhappy with my experience. IF YOU WANT AN IPAD, DO NOT ORDER IT ONLINE. PRINT OUT THE DEAL YOU FOUND ONLINE AND GET A PRICE MATCH AT THE STORE SO THE STORE CAN GIVE YOU THE DEAL. GOOD LUCK!!

      The Mini1 is really a great tablet compared to others. It is far superior with the Kindle newspapers download compared to using a Kindle tablet for the same daily newspapers. It is not super fast as probably the Mini4, but this cost less than half of the latest model. If this is your only computer device, you might be disappointed in speed. Having said that, it does more than I expected and with Apple, all your contacts, email, music and pictures (limited by 16 GB model) all sync with iPhone, iPod touch, and you Mac computer. Couldn't be happier. The iPad received looked brand new, not a scratch or dent anywhere and battery lasts me most of the week. Buy the highest grade offered - not the cheapest refurbished.

      I missed iOS 9

      I have an iPad pro and got tricked into updating it to iOS 10. It was all downhill after that. Dozens and dozens of my favorite games and apps no longer worked and I hated the iPad I used to love. Then I bought this from Best Buy. The only imperfection I could find was a small nick on the back cover. It came with a 90 day warranty, a lightning cable and an AC adapter. But most of all, it came wit iOS 9! And my sorely missed games had a new home. I am now in love with both of my iPads now.

      So far so good

      This is the first time I have ever bought a used electronic and was very apprehensive about it, but this was purchased for a child so I didn’t want to pay the brand new price tag! The screen resolution of this particular iPad mini is not as crisp and clear as our other older, used one, but it functions just fine so far. He is happy with it, so I am. If anything changes I will update. 1/5/18

      While the iPad it self was in great working condition, Apple no longer supports the product. This means no iOS updates and the current versions of apps don't work and there is no way to really download the older version of an app. Especially if you're not fully invested in the apple infrastructure, which we are not.

      This IPad is great. Bought it for my son for Christmas and I was nervous it would look used but, it didn’t. It looked brand new. Not one scratch on it. It came in a regular box with generic charger but, that’s fine. We had an iPad box from another one so we put it in there. It works great!

      At first I was looking into buying any table for my 2year old... but once I saw the price and looked into other models of the product.....I I realize that the speediness wasn’t that dramatic off… Then I looked into my daughters because she has a generation for…Once I received the iPad she love it....

      I literally had to buy 3 before I got one that worked properly, fortunately Best Buy’s return policy made it painless. The IPad was a Christmas gift for my 5 year old. It’s a really good deal considering it’s only used for educational games and YouTube Kids. Great Investment for a first time user!
