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.

I love it, first I Pad ever and it is great, just what I was expecting. Very clear, quick and easy to use. Connects to WIFI and bluetooth with no problems. Got to have it, don't hesitate in purchasing it from B&H, they provided excellent customer service and delivery.

I really like this iPad

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

I bought this iPad Mini 2 while away on a trip recently because I had forgotten to bring my beloved 15" MacBook Pro with me.
The screen on this unit is big enough so that I could comfortably read on line newspapers, surf the web and most importantly monitor my on line accounts without squinting at my iPhone 6 screen.
I chose this model with Wi-Fi only mainly because the price at B&H was unbeatable and I did not need the cell phone version. If ever I need to access the web away from Wi-Fi I can tether this to my iPhone using my personal Hotspot.
But buyers should be aware that the Wi-Fi only version does not come with a built in GPS engine, and it will not effectively run Navigation apps.
Also this unit does not have touch ID, but that's not a deal breaker either.
Now that I'm home and reunited with my Mac, my iPad has proven itself to be a nice fit between my laptop and my iPhone.
In the future when I travel, I plan on taking my iPad Mini 2 with me instead of lugging my MacBook Pro around. And if I get a DJI Phantom this iPad will function very nicely as the transmitter monitor.

Great Deal / Great Product

Been contemplating replacing my first gen iPad mini for a while and finally pulled the trigger when it just kept getting progressively slower with each iOS update. B&H had the best price I could find online or through local brick and mortar stores. Totally worth the purchase as apps and browsing move along at a good clip again. B&H service was great, I received confirmations throughout the process and product arrived right when they said it would and in perfect condition.

32GB mini 2 ipad

By Eyefr

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

Perfect size to carry anywhere. 32GB is more then enough for many apps. Super fast speed with wifi. Only thing not good is this mini 2 gets hot when using it for a long time. I purchased a cooling case from X-naut.com and boy did that work great. I highly recommend doing that. The battery last along time too. I was surprised. Great iPad.

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

We bought this iPad mini 2 for our 5 year old son as a replacement for our old 2011 iPad 2. I like it very much. Though the screen is smaller, the retina display makes it very pleasant for your eyes. Being smaller makes it much easier to handle, since it has the size of a paperback. I would not go back to a normal size iPad after this.

I bought this ipad mini for my grandkids when they visit and can't tell a difference between the ipad mini 2 and 4 that I already own. This site had the best deal hands down. Best Buy said they would price match it but I would have paid $15 in taxes so I said no thanks and bought it here. No tax, free shipping, on sale and an excellent product. YAY!
