Interesting looking a the buyer's sales history how the price has bobbed up and down, this currently being the cheapest yet

not bad - did he just reduce from 355 or is this cos open box?

Personally I'd rather pay more for a brand new one with a full warranty, not voted either way as this will appeal to some.

can fully recommend the seller purchased a brand new sealed one of him a few weeks back for £355

mgk

If only you could find one £60 cheaper than an Apple shop!

If anyone is worried about using this seller, I have used them before & they are really good

I've had a look at this seller before and the other items they sell and I can honestly say I wouldn't be surprised if in a few months/years an article similar to this one showed up about them. bitterwallet.com/one…839

There's simply no way they can sell items like this at that price with VAT included given that Apple's distribution network is very closed (i.e. you can't just buy Apple products at a discount from a wholesaler) and given the percentage that eBay and PayPal take from the sale.

In fact for quite a few of the items I had a look into their price seemed to match nearly exactly the VAT-exclusive retail cost of the item + eBay/Paypal/Amazon selling fees + a couple of £'s profit.

But this is no reflection on the deal itself at all, just an observation that personally I'm not so sure if HMRC are getting all the revenue they'd be expecting. I could be wrong of course though... Perhaps Apple recently started selling their goods to small-time eBay/Amazon sellers at half-price. Would certainly be an interesting strategic decision...

There open box, returns from Argos or other big retailers, he just sells them on

They are returns from US stores.

They're VAT registered.
Sales from those ipads alone total £250k..not a chance they've slipped under the radar.
180k feedback..average sale of maybe £250 judging by feedback equals turnover of 45 mill - not the sort of numbers that would go unnoticed for long..let alone 9 years

You'd be surprised how much the price drops once the sealed box is opened....especially a vanity item such as the ipad

which 1 is correct?

"new" these are not new
An open box on technology that has a broken seal is not new

Mine was a US return but still had 9 months Apple warranty and is absolutely fine.
I'd recommend them

open box...

can you go to the apple store to replace if the first is found to be defective if it is a US version?

Yes no problems

its a guess, but,
it maybe an open box to save on tax,
if you buy something the USA you have to pay import tax on it,
if you open the box its classed as not new anymore and you can get around the tax, thereforer making it cheaper, its a trick i heard about when a mate was buying bits on ebay from the US.
as i say it is a guess.

Voted hot but personally would rather buy brand new

Does Open Box = No Warranty in this case?

16 GB is simply not enough once you upload photos, games music etc... My 32GB iPhone is FULL

Disagree - if you try to keep all your music on it, you'll run out of space. But try Spotify, or weekly shuffling to free up space.

Photos take up negligible space, and if you delete your unused apps regularly you'll be sweet. Remember - once you've paid for your license you can delete and redownload apps/games on your coupled devices as many times as you need.

Cold.

The Ipad2 16gb WIFI refurb is only £359 from the Apple store with 12 months warranty.

Take off the 3% quidco and it's £351. An extra £2 for 9 months more warranty, free engraving & no questions or doubts about VAT etc. seems like a much better deal.

Best to buy from a proper retailer with full protection.

It's already an expensive item, so the extra £30 it costs from Apple really isn't worth the hassle in case of something going wrong.

its £399 on Apple site, also been out less than a year so surely you can just walk into the apple shop incase something goes wrong, not sure they can argue that..

LOL......thanks go ahead and buy me one !!

Okay, which colour would you like....?



I'm resisting this cos I'm waiting for iPad 3, which will have Siri. I think Siri's a game changer.

Just a thought for those thinking of buying direct from the USA. You can buy a USA address from Parcel2Go for 12months for 20 quid.
They then forward parcels to you via DHL,which I’ve found is far less likely to impose tax then FedEx. The cost of them sending you something like an iPad (or anything else a similar size and weight) is around £24
Haven’t tried it yet so can’t vouch for the service. Maybe someone else has tried it?

They ship from the UK.

I got a refurbished Galaxy tab from Digigood, I messaged them before and they took the time to send a detailed reply back answering all my questions. When I received it it came with a direct email address to their urgent returns section for any problems.

The tab itself is an American model as stated on the box meaning I couldn't register it with Samsung UK and there for couldn't update the Android OS, I did managed to do it manually via my PC.

I've been pretty happy with Digigood so far and am more than happy with a £140 saving
