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!

            I used to have an ipod. This is so much more readable because of the size. I use it mostly to show pictures that I've taken with my DSLR and the resolution of the screen is so much better than that of my former ipod.

              Very portable. Great operating system - very easy to learn and lots of useful applications. The whole family can use it for homework, web browsing and playing games. The best of all, the entire iWork (including word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation) software are FREE to devices with iOS 7.

              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.

              Got this ipad mini mainly for web browsing and gaming. It is plenty fast and is a nice size. I am not concerned about storage, 16 GB is enough for pictures and a movie or two if needed for a weekend trip. Battery life is perfect. Great product for a home wifi.

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

                When it came time to upgrade from my iPad 1, the iPad Mini was the perfect option. The Mini is a one-handed, light-as-a-feather, camera-equipped bundle of portable computing power with all the features of a full-size iPad, including Siri (a whole review in itself!).

                It's the perfect size to tuck into a lunch bag for work or into a pocket on cargo shorts. Although I've found 16g to be plenty of space, models with more storage are also available. Plus, with WiFi available literally everywhere these days, I've never once missed the fact that is doesn't have cellular capabilities. (Although models are available with that option.)

                If you're on the fence about purchasing a hand-held device with more screen space than a phone but at a more affordable price than a full-size iPad, stick with Apple products and check out the iPad mini -- I promise you won't regret it.

                        Comments about 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!
