I was a little concerned as the "certified refurbished" was an Amazon refurbished classification, not Apples. However I've had the device for about 3 weeks now and it's working fine. I wasn't real comfortable with the shipping packing - the left and right cushioning was sufficient however top and bottom relied on the box itself, but again, it appears to be working quite well. I saved a good amount of money buying this iPad this way.
1.0 out of 5 starsBox seal was torn, useless charger came instead of actual usable charger

The seal on the box was torn when I received the box. Inside, instead of the Ipad charger, there is a weak cell phone charger that cannot even charge the Ipad. Also the charging cable is a cheap chinese product.
Unless they send me a proper charger and a cable, I am returning this.
The iPad arrived on time in generic packaging which I expected packaging was sufficient to protect the iPad I’m assuming this is an Apple charger it’s very small the lightning cord appears to be Apple, the iPad is in excellent condition no scratches no scuffs appears to be brand new. 32 gb is not enough memory to be even useful after the original software is loaded there’s not much Storage room left maybe browsing the Internet a little bit of Facebook some pictures and a couple of videos after that any applications of any real meaning will immediately fill up 2 GB. I know you can offload some of it to the iCloud but you will be frustrated if you want to do anything more than light storage. Some of the reviews had mixed results whether it works with the first generation Apple Pen, this one does work with the first generation Apple Pen
I missed having an iPad, and decided to check out amazon for deals, as I didn’t necessarily want a brand new one. I wasn’t disappointed.
Mine works great. It runs my games and apps flawlessly, and aside from the notorious not-so-great battery life, my only complaint is that the iPad came with a knock-off charging cable and block, which are detrimental to the battery in the long run.
This was a gift for my nephew and having the wonderful experience with apple refurbished I thought in this case would be the same unfortunately was not. The exterior case has signs of being used. It was not refurbished since in that case the case would be new. The cable provided was not the original from apple and annoyingly slow in charging. Although it came in the original box it was closed very badly all over with some packaging tape. Everything else seemed in order but only time will tell
Okay, so I was skeptical of a refurbished iPad but changed it. Turned out to be a good move. Love the iPad. Came in VERY good shape with the correct apple cord. Charges great, super fast, screen without scratches...I love it!
