"I would buy this product again"

The product was great. It was actually a gift for my 11 and 8 year old daughters and they are loving their IPAD 2.

I purchased an iPad and have been using it for about a month now. Apps are nice and checking e-mail and surfing the web work well... but... with out Flash support many of the websites and software I would like to run I can't. I't would be perfect if it allowed Flash!

      Comments about 16GB iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (Black):

      The iPad 2 with Wi-Fi by Apple is a great first or second tablet, or when your needs are basic and relatively unsophisticated. I gave it to my 14-year-old niece for a birthday present, and she was thrilled. It has limited touch-screen capability compared to its newer versions, but is still very stylish and light, easy to carry with you, capable of being used at any Wi-Fi facility, and completely capable to connecting to any of your desirable websites in a timely manner. Great battery life.

        Used in a church to operate a Mackie DL 1608 digital mixer. When it arrived it even had 72% battery charged. Pretty good. Needed update but did it quickly and it is working fine in our sound system.

              Comments about 16GB iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (Black):

              It was fast enough.. today it's super slow! I have to use RAM cleaning app every 30 to keep using this device without it get stuck. web browsing is a challenge lately! the processor has degraded very heavly, so as the SSD inside... and 0.5 GB or RAM isn't enough anymore!
              also, the speaker has degraded to the point i have to touch my ear to the side of the speaker so sound will pass through the solid, not the air, otherwise it's not loud enough... so I have to have headphones on me all the time.
              also, the microphone is very weak, so in skype I have to use headphone with built in microphone

              also it's kinda heavy for me.. and hard to hold with one hand in some positions...

              also the display isn't a good display, and if your'e going to buy an iPad, you should get retina display iPad..

              battery life used to be nice, but has degraded as well to the point I charge it twice a day in a normal day and in some days 3 times..

              WiFi performance are not as good as I'd expect from a premium product. probably because of the aluminum body...

              also after a while the edges of the glass stated to scratch my fingertips and leave glass residues on my fingertips skin

              good thing is that there are a lot of app in the app store...

              I'm probably going to buy an android tablet... probably the new nexus 7...

              I'm maybe too generous giving it 2/5 and not 1/5

              it's a nice tool to have when you want to browse the web and check your emails. also playing games on it is nice due the the larger screen size than the mini.

                          First, B+H was courteous, fast and shipped for free. I am on the opposite coast and was pleasantly surprised how quickly my order arrived.The iPad 2 was new in original package and exactly as I ordered. It was a gift for my mother and she loves it. Already loaded are dictionary and thesaurus apps as well as PDF documents applicable to her field of work. I also loaded several hundred family photos -- so I don't have to print them for her anymore;) Good price, good product. Thank you.

                                    Comments about 16GB iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (Black):

                                    In the past I traveled with a laptop to keep abreast of my business and personal affairs. The laptop was heavy, took up a lot of space, and was slow to boot up. I finally broke down and got the iPad 2 after watching other people quickly do what use to take me a long time.

                                    For checking email and web browsing while on the go, it is perfect! It is small enough that I can easily carry it in my bags without needing another bag as I use to have to do with my laptop. Yet the screen is large enough that web browsing is not frustrating.

                                    The only draw back so far is using it to view web sites with Flash enable .
