good price but I got one of the 4th gen ones last week and was in terrible condition. back had several deep scratches, one of the corners was dented and had dirt that I could scrape off with my fingernail all round headphone socket. screen wasnt too bad tho. didnt look refurbished just re-boxed. sent it back, wouldn't by argos refurbished again.

Most of the people are really happy with Refurbished item from Argos/Ebay, you have a bad luck, that's it

Just got one, want to confirm if I'm unhappy with the quality am I able to return it?

It can be hit and miss with their 'refurb' stock. If you've ever been in their Clearance Bargain shops you'll know what I mean.

Most of the stock is returns rather than refurbs.

yes free return via collect+

We order an iPad 2... Touch input was dead on arrival, evident that the display had been replaced.

Collect + and refunded.

Might be worth ordering a couple to increase your chances of success.

Hard to believe I sold an iPad 2 two months ago for £215 cash.

Exactly same thing happened to mine with order I placed last week. Dirt in grooves. Back full of scratches. Large scratch in middle of screen. Defo not refurbished. Awaiting a reply to be able to sent it back.

We got a refurb iPad 4 direct from Apple when the Air was released and you couldn't tell the difference from a brand new one.

Warning, mine looked like a dog had mauled it, eaten it and then digested it.

Mine had been stamped on by an elephant and then run over by a steam roller prior to being used during a nuclear test it would seem. Stood up quite well though, still worked!

Are we still talking about the Ipad's here? (_;)

Mine looked like it had been used to make a stir fry, embedded in concrete and dropped in the sea for 3 months, then dug out and played with by a teething 3 year old. Still worked though! I love it.

mine had been eaten by a whale then the whale pooped it out and this poop was eaten by a shark who in turn was caught and eaten by some peeps who had some kinda horrible disease who in turn pooped it out and then ermmmmm it was subject to a decent size quantity of thermite.

it was delivered quickly though!

I've bought stuff from Argos from the normal catalogue and been given returns. Once they tried to fob me off with a brand new 'filthy' pressure washer with bits missing and the washer bottle half full with soapy water.

On the rare occasion I buy anything from Argos I open the box before leaving the store.

That's because refurbs directly from Apple have actually been refurbed, all outer casing is Brand New, and it is sealed for sale in a new refurb box, with a new carger and cable. I never buy new from apple, refurbs all the way.

Mine was perfect, so I sent them my old one that my Irish Wolfhound uses as a frisbee back for a refund.
Suckers!

Cold, cant install Mac OS X applications on iPad. (not really, just wanted to mirror the ridiculous comments I got for surface deal).

Seems a good price, not sure if I would want a refurb from Argos tho.

I think you need to remmeber an Argos refurb isn't an Apple refurb and the price reflects this. Apple will replace the complete outer shell if required, Argos will just fix what ever is broken and box it up again. I would probably rather buy a second hand iPad privatet from a seller that I could see the item rather than an unseen refurb. Good price if your not bothered thou.

To be fair, quality control on iPad 2-4th generations is shocking anyway. I've had mine for 2 years now, and from new all of the bezel was dinted, scratched and bent open. I took it to the Apple store but they said it was normal given the way the screen and case are fused together. Hopefully this is fixed with the iPad Air given the new design.

They did give me another one but it was worse

Very true, Argos 'refurbs' are not up to the standard of Apple refurbs at all

Yeah. That's a bit like saying "Bentley repairs are far better than Terry's Garage in that layby off the A47".

I bought a refurbished laptop this week and now I'm worried after reading these comments.

Tescos refurbs are what you want. Most are brand new just opened boxes but argos refurbs sound awful. I'm guessing most are the ones people return before the guarantee ends.

Cold, research has shown that all Apple products contain up to 25 milligrams of pure evil.

It's by design.
You have to spend £60 RRP on a piece of cow to make it fully functional.

sounds more like a snack based item over an IT product..... they seem to be immersed in food and sent ...why arent they cleaned ?

Have these gone up, I can't these prices on the link?...

I guess it's part of being fortunate of getting a good one.

i ordered a 5th gen 32gb ipod touch , got it for 148 with their 10% off offer, arrived today, very pleased with it, like new!

I can't find these prices either. Can u send me link to 32gb mini please?

Was looking for retina display one in 242...but can't find it. Probably sold out?

My friend had a laptop from Argos-ebay and she couldn't connect to the internet at all. After I looked it over the network driver was missing so I downloaded it. I assumed that's why it was a catalogue return so she was lucky it wasn't actually used for any length of time but proves they just rebox them and send them back out. I'm no computer geek but managed to sort it so don't hold much regard for their 'technical' people.

cold, not a blackberry playbook :-)

damn missed the £242 ipad 4
