Not bad but if your paying this much I would much rather a brand spanking new one from Apple.

Argos warranty are a nightmare as they subcontract it out

you can only get the 16gb 3G for this price from apple
£659.00 brand new - 12 months warranty

£499 refurb - 12 months warranty

choice is yours I guess....
Original box and accessories ? Who knows
Argos 'refurbs' are just customer returns. You'll be surprised how many people buy things like this with the intention to only use them for a bit and then send it back for a refund.
If people genuinely think Argos repair broken iPads, or Apple send them refurbs then they need to check in with reality! :) At most they will reinstall iOS, give it a clean and stick cellophane back on the screen.

not really worth paying so much for the 3g version - most ipad users will have an android phone or similar within wifi range so can just tether to that.
OOS sha I really wanted to Buy this

Yeah, looks like you needed it judging from your avatar..!
Avoid Argos eBay iPads IMO took 6 weeks to resolve a fault, numerous phone calls, letters, emails, lots of feedback can't be posted on eBay as it takes you weeks to resolve so you can't leave feedback.
Not that anyone is following this... But these refurbs are not as nice the as Apple refurb ones (I have received both types) The box, although an original apple one, is a bit tatty and dirty externally. There is a photocopy inside saying that it has been refurbished by D&J Henry in the Midlands - any issues or repair should go back to D&J Henry, not Argos. The external rear case has small and slight scuffs (seen from certain angles if you look for them in the light) otherwise it seems good. naturally this doesn't matter if you put it in a protective case.

The iPad, plugs, etc did not come wrapped up in cellophane like an apple refurb one, but was in a polythene bag taped over with Sellotape.

3G on the iPad is a bit of a difficult call. Strictly speaking many phone tariffs do not allow wifi hotspots, however I have used mine and never been pulled up on it. Also Mifi devices offer similar functionality. Finally I think it is impossible for the iPad to roam outside the uk without changing to local provider sims. However for mobile browsing simplicity within the uk having 3G as a built in option works very well.

Overall verdict: although the 'unboxing' experience (so popular on YouTube) was somewhat disheartening (and not the experience apple would like you to have) the fact remains that saving £160 off an ipad2 is significant for the sake of a scruffy box - certainly until the ipad3 becomes mainstream.

The product appears to work perfectly so far and I hope it remains so - otherwise off to Coventry it goes. :(
