I like the size of this iPad Mini and I like the Retina screen, very clear and crisp. It's much much better than my old iPad 2. With the mini, I am able to read everything clear on it and watch video on it with no problems. Playing games, watching video, surfing the web, and so on is much smoother and easier, thanks to it's new processor. No delays at all, quite speedy. Wifi speed is much faster than before.

Only downside is memory size. I mean I thought Apple would increase their size over time without changing the price. I got a 32gb which is ok. Was hoping Apple change new line-up in this order: 32, 64, 128, 192. 16gb is simply not enough to hold most of the great Apps that Apple offer. So, I must take one star with me.

Sleek, stylish, attractive, etc., and it is very useful. I bought it primarily to connect my Fujifilm XT-1 camera to take photos from the iPad and to send photos from camera to iPad. Also I plan to use it for general photo display for myself, family, and friends.

I suppose iPhone users are at ease with it, but for those of us who don't have iPhones (or other smart phones), it is not at all intuitive--yes there are a few of us who don't have smart phones. It does not work at all like a computer: no home page for Safari, no easy way to close a folder or app, etc.

Also, it is pricey. Should it cost that much? No, certainly not.

Overall, I would say it is useful for a lot of people, but not something you really need. Were it not for my camera connection I would not have bought it.

Inexpensive functionality

Comments about 32GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Silver):

I bought this primarily to operate the Cerevo 4-input HDMI video switcher. The IPAD Mini 2 runs the APP and switcher operation is quite good.

I'm pleased that it works for what I bought it for.

The retina display is pretty good. There is a lack of touch responsiveness in the upper left corner, that's a little aggravating, but I don't have time to mess with sending it back, so I live with it.

Slightly better than 1st Gen

Comments about 32GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Space Gray):

Got this to replace a 1st gen iPad Mini. Slightly faster and the screen is a bit better but not as big a deal as Apple's hype. Just wish I would have gotten more memory. 32GB doesn't cut it if you want to store any media like music, photos, and videos. FWIW, I had to fix the 1st gen unit 3 times- fortunately had Square Trade on it for the 2nd and 3rd repairs which ended up being replacements from Apple. That makes 3 defective ones in a row. Hope this one is better.

    Comments about 32GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Silver):

    I have a 16GB ipad mini 1 and purchase this one (32GB) as a replacement after the mini 1 screen broke. Very pleased with the Retina display and the extra GBs! I store a lot of professional documents and apps, and still have space for my music library, some videos, and photos. Not so much for movies, though, but at this size and price, I guess I should not ask for too much.
    The small size of the minis is great for carrying around, and the power packed within is enough for all the entertainment, gaming, surfing, emailing I need.
    For 300 bucks, the price is reasonable for an all-purpose device, and B&H product quality and shipping is definitely the best.

                          Gave this as a gift to a hardworking employee that is bound for grad school. She is over the moon thrilled and even though apple products are super intuitive, she can make this iPad do tricks that have escaped me on mine. It's the perfect size to carry around with you to have all your computer needs in your bag. Won't we all have an iPad soon?
