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!

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

      I'm addicted to my iMac at home, but on trips I can check the weather, email and restaurants reviews and menus from my room. It is small and light and since it's WiFi only I'm not paying data fees.

      It is a little slow and too easy to touch the surface and unintentionally do something that you have to undo. Some graphics on email and the web do not show up.

                      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.

                        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.

                          Got it for my wife. She already had an iPad 2 but this one is smaller and better for her. She is taking it everywhere now. Easier to carry around for sure.
