      When ipads first came out, I didn't think I would use one, but this has changed my mind. Small and lightweight, but still large enough to see content easily, it is much easier to carry and use than my old netbook laptop. Great for surfing the web and keeping up with email and networking while traveling. Smartphones have too small a screen for me to do more than just the most rudimentary reading. Font size can be increased with a quick flick of the finger. The on screen keyboard is quick and easy to use---but would rec. a regular keyboard for any heavy duty wordprocessing, as it has limited other keyboard formatting functions.

      Purchased for wife so she could quickly look up Internet links while watching TV programs.
      Being a Windows user, I found the initial setup difficult. Did not like having to provide credit card up front as part of setup routine.
      Didn't like that as you used the browser, one could not back out easily. Browser would not go back to home page easily. Turning the iPad OFF then back ON and the browser would bring you back to the same screen.
      Did not like the fact that just about evey "app" was geared towards selling a product.
      Wifi setup was easy. Recommend buyers get a case or stand. The iPad is thin and slick. It can easily be dropped if you lose you grip. For that reason alone the warranty is justified. I like the sharpness of the screen. However the sound leaves a lot to be desired. Would be nice if it had a real physical USB port. Battery life seems good.

      [...] the product works just as I wanted. No others stores had the original 16G iPad expect yours, thankfully.

              Easily jail broken. Great for Grandchildren (7&5). Replaces cell phone, GPS, notebook. Truly facilitates studies.
              Wish it weren't so heavy. (I have it constantly.)
              Asked wife to hold it. Hard to get her to part with it.
              Haven't yet found all the keys on the keyboard. Give me a couple more days.

              This is my first Apple product and I had no issue setting it up, loading apps, photos & music. If I was going on a trip I'd carry the ipad for its internet connectivity and multimedia applications. I love reading books while listening to my music. There are thousands of great apps at little to no cost. This is a real keeper.

              I love the i pad. It is great for so many things. I bought it for my husband who is terrified of computers and he absolutely loves it. I am a Mac person, so I set it up for him, but he finds it very easy to use.

              Bought this for my wife but find I am using more and more as a computer replacement. Portability, long battery life and instant boot up are amazing. If it had a camera and a card reader it would be just about perfect Now I have to get one for me.

                      Took 10 years for me to return to Apple products. For the life of me I can't understand my reluctance. The iPad is great and I also use it as a book reader. I'm glad I didn't choke and buy a reader from Borders or Amazon. The only reason it earned only 4 stars is the horrible Apple remote app. It's a terrible implementation. I had hoped it would have been more useful with Apple TV!

                      I had doubts about the ipad before buying it. I went to B&H, received support and decided to buy it.
                      It is a simply great device. Not a pc, not a smartphone. It's just a ready to use device, without complicated configurations to do; just grab it and use it.
                      It's perfect to read book, magazines or showing pictures.
                      Maybe 16Gb are too few

                          I bought the iPad for my wife for Christmas. Our college-age son has one, so we were somewhat familiar with it. However, after spending time using it, we are both impressed with its capabilities. We both have laptops and desktops, and everything is wireless, but she's been using the iPad almost exclusively since she got it. Great display, very portable, long battery life, intuitive controls, tons of apps - what more could we ask for? B&H had a good price (no sales tax)[...]. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

                          Was not really sure if I would use it a lot. But it turns out, it's so convenient, that I can use it in any room of the house. Getting into some apps & Games now. Very simple to download & Install Apps. One Tap & Your There. Touch Screen is very responsive & the screen is bright, beautiful & easy to read. This has been taking the place of my old iBook Laptop & I'm not missing the DVD Drive one bit. There are so many Free Apps to try & a lot of them are really Useful. Battery on mine lasts almost 12 Hours. Incredible. Picture Slide Shows Look Brilliant! East to synch & Use with iTunes. Oh yea, Apps do not take up a lot of Space, so for 16 GB's, I still have over 12 GB's Free.
