This review is going to focus on the service. The iPad was in excellent condition when it arrived and, well, it's an iPad! I LOVE it! It is used for work and home.
Now to get to the service from B&H Photo - I called them to see how much it would be to overnight the product. Instead of just quoting a price the sales associate dug deeper, wanted to know more about when I needed it. We found that second day air was much less and it arrived in time. Thanks for the effort! They answered all my questions and helped me decide which iPad was best for me. They really went above and beyond!

Big performance, small size

Comments about Apple 16GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi (Black & Slate):

I love my big iPad 2 but I love this smaller size even more. I don't notice the screen size difference at all and it performs better.

    Comments about Apple 16GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi (Black & Slate):

    There's not much about the iPad or iPad mini that hasn't already been written. But if you're looking for a tablet for an 8 year old, I can tell you that the iPad mini is a fantastic option. Parental controls are good and the device keeps a kid entertained on long road trips. Books and educational sites make it more than just an entertainment device. Within 2 days of receiving the iPad mini, our son made a presentation in Keynote and 4 "songs" in the Garageband app. His mother and I highly recommend this device. Cheers!

        Comments about Apple 16GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi (Black & Slate):

        Bought this one as a gift for someone who doesn't own or want a smart phone.

        Exact same item I bought last year but now $100 cheaper. Nobody really needs the retina version on a 7.9 inch screen. Even if you're a pixel peeper, you wouldn't do it on something this small. You get the full iOS user experience: FaceTime, display mirroring, web browsing, email, media streaming, iCloud, and e-reader. Battery life is very good, usually only need to charge it every other day.

        I highly recommend getting a smart cover as an accessory. Attaches magnetically and turns the screen off when closed while doubling as a foldable stand.

            Great little tool to have on hand for mobile songwriting; lots of apps to keep it simiple and fast. This was a gift for someone else, but I can see myself getting one of these as well.

                    Use it mostly to write documentations while on the road. With a bluetooth keyboard it can be as productive then most tablets or laptops.

                    It is unclear why the retina display is not included. Then, it would be a formidable competitor to Samsung and others.

                          battery is great as long as it is being used just for browsing/listening songs and playing some videos. battery drains very faster the moment I use it with HDMI TV Adapter. Apple would have to do better in terms of battery. Otherwise, its a great device to have. I would recommend it.

                            Small enough to be convenient. Large enough to get the job done.
                            Please note that this new version has a different charging plug connection and older models (and some accessories) will not be compatible.

                                    It does virtually everything our iPad2 can do but is even easier to take when we travel.

                                          Great price and all the features of the larger iPad. I think it is much easier to type on the Mini than my iPad2.
