Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
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.

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.
I just received this yesterday and am happy with the iPad. However, I am very thankful I decided to unplug the charger last night so that I could move it to a different room. It was so hot I needed a pot holder to unplug it. Better off ordering an apple charger to go with it at the time of purchase. I just ordered one.
The product is fine. How it is advertised is not. A table on the Amazon page says it uses cellular and WiFi for wireless communications. Apparently, I was not supposed to believe that, but rather, a couple of lines below the table a disclaimer says it cannot connect to any cellular network. So which is it? It is, as I found out when I tried to connect, the latter. Caveat emptor...
