My first refurbished device purchase
Reviewed in the United States on July 1, 2018
I was a bit sceptical on refurbished ipad. However, the price and offering make difficult to ignore. At the same time my ipad mini 2 is showing an ageing speed.
Ordered on 27-Jun selected the global expedited shipping, arrived here in Asia via DHL on 30-Jun before the end of the day, two days faster than the shipping confimation.
The packaging is minimum, but still protected by few airbags. Ipad comes with generic box instead of apple certified refurbished one. There is one paper divider to separate the ipad and charger+cable contained below. I wish teh seller could put something to prevent the charger and acble moving inside the box. The provided charger and cable are aftermarket ones, not the usual apple charger+cable.
The ipad is protected by thin film, enough to prevent scratches during the shipment. There some small mark and nip fisible. But it doesn’t affect the functionality of the ipad. When power on, there 89% power left. Both cameras, wifi and bluetooth module, all buttons (power, volume, home/touchID) speakers are working fine. The device system is also working well. I’m writing review from it and hope it continues to work find. If you are fine with refurbished product, trade off between appearance vs functionality... then this should be good cost saving purchase.
