Thanks to OP for this deal. I took the plunge and ordered one for my Mrs. Just thought I'd update folks who are still waiting for theirs to arrive or think about purchasing.
As mentioned previously, this is a US import. The seller does provide a UK adapter, but it's very flimsy and plasticky so I would avoid using this. They've also included a stylus, headphones, lens cloth and 4000mAh power bank. Unfortunately, it did all come in a Jiffy bag so could have been packaged better.
On the whole it's great for £279.19

Literally in the screenshot I sent you and at the top of this hotukdeals post. PARTY
nice one thanks
Got it, noticed teh code also works on other models
Bought.

Hoping this one gets delivered unlike my eGloabalCentralUK purchase
That's an amazing price. How can they do it for that?!
I was tempted and their ebay reviews seem decent but i'll go with when it seems too good to be true then it likely is. Hope everyone gets the item as described. I want the IPAD air 3 which wasn't available thus i will keep an eye out for that.

It is!
Price superb but 64gb won't last me a week
looks like 10 HUKD'ers have take the plunge up to now
Did anyone buy from them last time round ? Also wondering if these iPads are UK models or not ?
Any idea what the 'free accessories' are that come with this? From the graphics displayed only the pen looks like its extra.

Yes loads of people did if you look at the previous Hotukdeals entries. They appear to have been us models with uk plug.

Looks like eBay pays the seller the discount, they've got a 20% off promo on.
Can't resist at that price. Ordered. Thank you OP

I noticed my Ebay email says order confirmed for £279.19 but my email from Paypal says I have sent a payment of £348.99. How does that work?
Hmmm...I log into Paypal and only the £279.19 has been sent. Phew.

Buy this. This is a grey import, Amazon will never be able to match it. Also I'm fairly sure this seller is doing something dodgy with VAT as when I asked for a VAT receipt they were reluctant and issued me a zero-rated VAT receipt to start.

Either way, this is the best price for an iPad mini 5 that I can find, they are legit, and other than the seller's appalling packaging (box lobbed in a jiffy bag - I had to send one back for a smashed up box), I'm happy enough. The mini 5 is a *huge* step-up from the comparatively rubbish iPad 9.7 2018 (better laminated P3 display, more RAM, 2 gen newer CPU, more storage, etc.) and will hang with the Pros and Air 3: it's outrageously fast, the design is still 'modern enough' and it's crammed in a tiny chassis. Any gamers out there - this will run most things at high and full frame-rate, better than my iPad Pro 10.5 2017.

How quickly did they deliver yours? Did you have to sign for it?

About 2-3 working days from memory. I recall it was sent Royal Mail Tracked 24 no signature but as I ordered it through work, I had it sent to my office anyway so reception took it.
Ordered, thanks!
38068624-rfzko.jpgI was really tempted by the iPad mini but the screen ratio is very square. It means when you watch a movie the huge black bars end up making the screen the same size as the Note 9 (which is the phone I use).

In the end I went for a more wide-screen tablet, the Huawei Mediapad M5 8.4 (which is on sale at Amazon for £203.99.

I guess it depends how you intend to use the device, but for me it's for movie watching while travelling.
The reason I got this is that because of the size its very portable, and whilst I need to eventually get a new iPhone, it has specs that beat the iPhones that are over twice the price.

Why would you get an iPhone 8 at £445 when this is the latest version (2019) which means you will get 3-4 years of updates from Apple for this versus buying an older phone that costs a lot more.

That’s just put me off, nearly bought one for my daughter who spends a lot of time watch films

While I agree that the iPad mini isn't the best for 16:9 content the image you've attached is quite misleading as the video is zoomed in to fit the 18.5:9 aspect ratio of the Note 9. If the image were scaled to fit it's original aspect ratio then you'd also get back bars left and right of the image on your phone (it's one of the reasons I don't like the new trend in phone aspect ratios, I'd much prefer to have the 16:9 phone design back).

Anyway, apart from that I completely agree! The iPad mini 4:3 screen has its uses but for video and 16:9 movie watching it's annoying which is why I haven't bought one.
Use mine for video and totally understand where you're coming from but it's compromise with the overall device size. The app nPlayer for example you can have any zoom whilst playing back with pinch gestures to keep the important bits in frame and shrink the black bars a bit. Plus of course you are watching it on a tablet so you're not getting the best environment for full movie experience I missed the boat on the grey but it did come back in stock and managed to order. Currently have a Mini 4 and quite happy with it but this should be a major jump in speed for those occasional stuttering moments it has had.

If it shows out of stock, try again a bit later. This morning only the rose gold was available but now the silver is also available.

Great post and thank you to the OP.
Really struggling deciding between models.

Silver would be okay IF it had a black surround and not white!
