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.
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.
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
