Fantastic screen resolution. Very crisp display. Once you switch from a regular iPad, it is hard to go back. If you enjoy reading ePub books, highly recommended. The size of the device is very convenient.

    I keep wanting to use a BACK/PREVIOUS button but there is none. Having to learn the "iPad way". WiFi works great with comfortable speed. I use the iPad for mostly reading, but also for email, piano keyboard, a few games and internet research.

      Comments about 16GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Space Gray):

      This iPad is not an Air, but it feels light and remarkably thin. The retina LCD is stunning and puts all other non-retina class LCDs to shame. Even though it is not the latest model it has more than enough processing power for anything I'd be using it for. It powers up fast, apps open almost instantly. The camera quality exceeds my Canon point-and-shoot camera of a couple of years ago. Nice work Apple! Also, super quick shipping from B&H as usual!

      This was the first time that I bought any IT products from B & H but I was VERY satisfied with the level of professionalism and knowledge displayed by the service represetative. Fast and smooth transaction and I was most impressed with the extra effort to get my order shipped that day. Based on this experience I plan to buy more products through B & H. Well done!

      Comments about 16GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Space Gray):

      For a first time Apple user, the first impression was good.
      The regret that I should had purchased a version with more storage, came fast.
      For someone with bellow average viewing:
      Reading books on it, decent.
      Movies, small.
      Games, very good.
      If you don't own an Apple computer, you'll struggle with the data transfer.

      For my purposes -- iBooks, email, youtube -- this little tablet more than suffices. I wouldn't shoot a movie or compose a symphony with it, but it delivers on its promise.

      By Clover Estate

      Comments about 16GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Space Gray):

      It is very nice with super clear screen quality. I used it to watch movies. If there has to be some negative, the battery drains faster than I expected. Overall, it is a great product and I like it.

                  It's light weight, small form factor and high effectiveness on or off line make it a great tablet at home, but an even great table for the road. Slips into my wife's purse just as easily as into my back back. We're able to stay connected on the road and do just about anything we can do at home like banking, emailing, texting, facetime, excel, word, games, etc. Connecting to the cloud gives us additional data storage & retrieval and the power of 1000's of inexpensive, uesful apps. Could it be a little cheaper...? sure! But with Apple engineering you pay for quality and style and this iPad mini 2 has both. In short... you can't go wrong.

                        Nice product like the old ones. The Retina Display really does make a difference. Another good job by Apple. Just wisah the battery lasted longer, which has been a problem with previous models.
