I like the size of this iPad Mini and I like the Retina screen, very clear and crisp. It's much much better than my old iPad 2. With the mini, I am able to read everything clear on it and watch video on it with no problems. Playing games, watching video, surfing the web, and so on is much smoother and easier, thanks to it's new processor. No delays at all, quite speedy. Wifi speed is much faster than before.

Only downside is memory size. I mean I thought Apple would increase their size over time without changing the price. I got a 32gb which is ok. Was hoping Apple change new line-up in this order: 32, 64, 128, 192. 16gb is simply not enough to hold most of the great Apps that Apple offer. So, I must take one star with me.

Sleek, stylish, attractive, etc., and it is very useful. I bought it primarily to connect my Fujifilm XT-1 camera to take photos from the iPad and to send photos from camera to iPad. Also I plan to use it for general photo display for myself, family, and friends.

I suppose iPhone users are at ease with it, but for those of us who don't have iPhones (or other smart phones), it is not at all intuitive--yes there are a few of us who don't have smart phones. It does not work at all like a computer: no home page for Safari, no easy way to close a folder or app, etc.

Also, it is pricey. Should it cost that much? No, certainly not.

Overall, I would say it is useful for a lot of people, but not something you really need. Were it not for my camera connection I would not have bought it.

          Gave this as a gift to a hardworking employee that is bound for grad school. She is over the moon thrilled and even though apple products are super intuitive, she can make this iPad do tricks that have escaped me on mine. It's the perfect size to carry around with you to have all your computer needs in your bag. Won't we all have an iPad soon?

          Used daily instead of my iPhone and away from my iMac for reading emails, social media, etc; like one my patio. I like iCloud for syncing emails, etc. so changes on one device occurs on all. Apple could improve with better "owner manuals ". Also bought one for my seven year old granddaughter who loves it for games and movies.

          This product works well for my daughters. The screen is a little too sensitive and has taken some getting used to as it is very easy to type incorrect letters when keyboarding.

          Overall a good buy.

          I purchased an iPad mini in April 2015 to replace my old iPad. At the time, I purchased iPad Air as well for the kids. The kids liked the iPad mini size better than the iPad. They are able to get the same apps on the mini as the normal iPad. That was 1 concern I had about the mini since there are some apps that you can't get on the iPhone. They were happy to see all the games and school apps were available on the mini. They have asked to get their own iPad mini for Christmas. I like the size of the mini as well since it works better in their smaller hands.

              I use this to display photos and movie clips when I am on the go. Screen resolution is great. Easy to hold and pass around to others in meetings. Not so great are the volume/mute buttons which are narrow and too recessed, making it less easy to immediately mute or adjust volume.

              I bought this as a Christmas present for my wife. I suspect that she will love it, as she has been asking for one the past couple of years. I found this one and ordered it because of the gigs and size. It is already wrapped and under the tree. Now just waiting for the big day so I can see face light up.

              I received this IPad Mini 2 as a gift and am very happy with it. It is lightweight and comfortable to hold in my hand. I am using it now to read a novel and appreciate the simplicity of defining, searching for, and highlighting words. I also have no problem reading emails on both Apple and Yahoo, for which I was able to download an app. It's a very nice product

              I have bought a digital camera for my company from B&H before and I again purchased this iPad as a Christmas gift for my niece. The product is as good as the item you buy from Apple store. I think I would come back to shop on this site more often if I need some digital products. The quality of product is good, customer service is excellent, and the shipping is fast. And on top of that, awesome deals you could not get from anywhere else.

              Highly recommended !!
