Hardly the worst
Unlikely. New iPad came out in March :/ maybe pro models etc.
worst deal i've seen for a while - coldddddddddddddd
i have ipad air 1st generation, still going strong, no issues. not as fast as newer ones but im not too othered with that. it loads up web pages, ebay and streams youtube with no issues. so buying an older model is not neccesarily a bad thing
Upgraded from an air to 2018. I had 5 good years from it, certainly got my moneys worth but don't be the mug buying it now - they're slowing down big time. My 2018 cost £240, no brainer.
How is this worth it? I had an iPad Air like 2 years ago and even then it started to run pretty badly, I dread to think what it's like now, it definitely isn't worth this price. People are crazy paying these prices for such ancient technology just because there's a little apple on the back.
I had this iPad since its launch and recycled for £165 (32gb Wifi) few months ago and upgraded to pro version. Irrespective of versions or models Apple IPad is the best tab.
Folk comparing prices with newer models, remember that this one has 4G, which most other iPad-type-thingies don't have. Folk interested, use the PHONE10 code to get a further 10% off on eBay, as with 4G onboard it's technically a phone, so it should qualify for the current 10% off promo. But folk with sense, buy an Android device ;) *eBay 10% off mobiles : 10% off mobiles info :)
I have the ipad Air. It's 4 years old. My wife has just bought the 2018 model, so I can compare. The new one is much, much faster, and it has much better battery life. Having seen them side by side, I'm quite envious. I certainly would not pay £170 for an ipad Air. £70 maybe.
Uneconomic to repair this tablet
Paid £246 for. Brand new sealed uk Ipad 6th generation on the eBay deal a few weeks back, this is not good value!
Use mine for holiday flights. Had for a few years and still super quick.
One of the best ever displays on a tablet. 2GB RAM Apple A8X from 2014 still holding up. . Can't help it but the prices are going to fall a bit more in two weeks time. For 200+ one can even get a 6th gen iPad.
These are £1 in Poundland exactly the same
Looks like that was a flop of a deal then!
Also seen & exactly same item
Keep an eye out in wilkos, bought an ipad 2 Air tempered glass £1.25 good too.
Nope, literally the exact same. same make and everything.
If they released this cross platform i'd buy it in a heartbeat, until then i'll stick with the pc, favourite game of all time
Bought and Google Rewards kindly contributed £5.59 towards it :) Love this game. I have it on Snes, Wii, DS (somewhere) and now Android.
I thought this was for the switch too! Got really excited
Thanks was looking at getting this other week but went with FF tactics as it was reduced in price. Now just need 7 to be reduced now.
Yes which is annoying because the Air was a perfectly good iPad until recently. I’m pretty sure it’s the RAM limitation as all current iPads have at least 2GB RAM so Apple just aren’t even bothering to optimise for the older ones - can you blame them? Maybe not but I honestly can’t say I’ve ever needed any newer features in iOS, it just gets slower with each iteration... I only updated my iPad Pro to iOS 11 as some apps just stopped working on 10...
your in for a world of pain if you get one of these, its a perfectly good hardware platform but more recent iOS release have clearly introduced issues to make you think you need to upgrade. Slower than previously web browsing Stuttering scrolling Frequent soft resets
a7 chip been around since 2013 = (poo)
I think I got the last one, which year was it released
Seemed to have been sold by a third party seller Tronyx with a 3/5 star rating . Not sure how that works with game. But oos when added to basket anyway
Does Amazon underground still have a free version of this?
It hasn’t aged well.
KoTOR is currently free on Xbox Game Pass.
This is great on the PC, and the steam version got updated a few years ago with better visual, joypad support and steam chevoos....cracking game.
I once completed this game on my iPhone, it run like crap but it’s such an awesome game. It also looks very good in 4k on my X1X
i have one of these, great device. seems good price when compared to apple store.
Same here, I love my Air2. Got the Dixons deal yesterday with an OLD nexus 7, loving apple pencil for note taking ;)
Agreed, the laminated display on the Air 2 is much better than the 2017/2018 models, far less reflection and there has been no change in resolution with the latest models. I work for an iOS development company who produce business apps for iPad's and Android (although we found iOS has been far more successful in the corporate world). I've been using my Air 2 daily since launch (Oct 2014) and still find no real issues with performance. I may consider an upgrade to the 2018 iPad for pencil support - especially for testing but there has been no temptation to upgrade to the 2017 model. I think I have an old iPad 1 in the cupboard and a Galaxy Tab, may be time to upgrade one of those to the 2018 model! Heat added!
2017 ipad doesn't have the same laminated display as the air 2. To be honest, if you have any working tablet that's less than 7 years old then Currys will give you £50 off the 2018 ipad that has apple pencil compatibility. £269 plus TopCashback (or £10+ in avios) for a new 32gb
These are perhaps better value: https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/browse/home/specialdeals/ipad 2017 32GB @ £239 2017 128GB @ £299 Directly refurbished from Apple.
Mine also arrived today.Absolute perfect condition and very pleased.Wish I'd bought 2 of them now.Superb and possibly one of the best bargains I've bought in a long time.Enjoy my friend.
Mines arrived today. No feacal matter on iPad. Cleaned with antibacterial wipes. Little dink on bottom edge otherwise good. Thanks again
Because depending on what you are doing you don't need more storage.
Managed to get one. Cheers OP
It’s hardly a joke. Some people only use iPads/tablets for browsing the web or streaming Netflix; how much storage do you need for that? Wouldn’t buy a 16GB one myself but I know plenty of people who fit that scenario above.
Are these cheaper in US
Cracking deal! Thanks! Ordered!
Installed these yesterday from the Argos deal (free delivery to local sainsburys, next day having ordered at 8pm). Very happy, was starting to get more and more issues with VM Superhub2ac and regularly rebooting twice to resolve, often either all Wifi or all wired LAN devices would loose connection. Make sure to stick existing router into Modem only mode to avoid double Nat, which unfortunately means you loose switch ports on VM hub, except one for the Google Wifi primary. Had to buy an extra switch (the 8-port metal Netgear is £15.99 currently on amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00AWM7PKO recommend it), so where I had just the Superhub before, I now have 3 devices (Google, VM and Switch), something that may be a problem for some locations so bare that in mind, but no issues for me as all mounted to the rear of highriser bed in kids room. Very happy, very robust, happy to see they added subnet options, as would have been a nightmare if I has to change my IP addresses on some devices (hardcoded SQL library), one thing still lacking is more advanced options for routing and firewalls, but there are so features I'm not fussed. Parental controls are excellent, pausing devices, guest network with allocated device connection, remotely connecting and seeing usage, including speed testing (handy for support call to VM just now from work!). I planned on ethernetting the 2nd unit too, however tried placing without as no great place to run the ethernet to and back to the FireTV I had in mind without being on display. Was surpised how well it worked and as the Wifi down that end isn't for high performance, works brilliantly as is. TLDR - Would recommend thoroughly
As you said it is not the fastest of the mesh systems and is now considered 'old' compared to the new orbi But does the job for most peoples requirements and you probably have to pay an extra £100 for a 'better' one. hot.
I have this and it has been absolutely flawless. One unit downstairs (plugged into router) and one upstairs providing good coverage in a regular sized detached house. The App is very slick and allows setting family permissions, reports your average speeds, traffic prioritisation and port forwarding. I'm not sure it is the fastest of the Mesh systems, like Ubiquiti or Orb, but it has given rock solid connectivity. Highly recommended if you have flaky wifi.
Look at this on eBay https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F192491762601
Just thought I'd update. I received my iPad from eglobalcentral today after ordering last Friday. Brand new in a sealed box. Comes with a non U.K. Plug but an adapter is supplied.
Why not just go for one of these? I've taken the plunge and ordered one last Friday following some positive comments from people on here who have ordered one. Will update on how it goes! eglobalcentraluk.com/apple-ipad-9.7-2017-32gb-wifi-with-premium-folding-case-black-space-grey.html
How does this compare to the current iPad?
Rumours that new iPads are due to be laucnhed this month. Looking at a lower-cost iPad for Student use as well as updates across the lines. I've still got my iPad Air 2 after purchasing a 2017 iPad model and sending it back due to the hollow-plastic-y screen.
I think you may need to keep your router with BT. This runs off my open reach modem. I believe from the reviews that the Google ones get the best connection strength of any mesh system. The app is also great.
Well if hard wire is only plus then i will be ok with bt.
Not really, no. Have you tried looking this information up on the internet?
I'm in the same boat. I'd like another, but don't really want two more!
I do becuase you cant run the BT one off hard wire.
iPad 2 2012 selling for £160 secondhand?! Cheaper to buy a new iPad but wait for the new release iPads and hopefully this will go down by a penny... seriously it’s crazy.
And newer software on an old pc never slows the pc down, Windows springs to mind
Yes was released awhile ago and since been slowed down by Apple to make sure you buy a newer version. So cold deal. Might as well buy this for a lot less.
I have this suspicion too, although they only admitted to slowing down iPhones!
I’ve got a 32gb one a few years old..... it’s slowing down a lot now, probably by Apple.... just saying as refurb or not, based on the age, Apple do slow them down (as they admitted due to battery age/strain)
I know, I was just probing a bit further.
After seeing how badly iOS 11 performs on a 1st gen iPad Air i would be reluctant to buy anything less powerful than the new iPad 2017.
i have the 2017, if you play clash of clans don't buy this one, the screen is useless. It doesn't register when you try and drop troops. Maybe similar in other games. For everything's else it's fine/good.
Was on holiday there
Agreed. I got my 128gb WiFi new iPad 2017 for about £350 from very when they were doing 20% off apple products. It’s worked flawlessly and is very quick. Seen the iPad Air 2 screen and personally made no difference to me, but others will have different opinions I’m sure.
PC World / Currys stores don't do communication except in extreme circumstances. You have to physically present yourself. The central call centre will do everything they can to avoid connecting you, though it's achievable on occasion, if you are cunning.
Anyone know of anymore Pro 9.7 stock? Annoyingly can’t get hold of any telephone numbers for any stores. Ideally in Herts/London
Got 2 iPad Pro 12.9 cellular 479 each from oxford street, they had iPad Pro 9.7128gb and iPad Air 2 and various series 1 watches
Was just there too was after the 12.9 picked up the last one in the Mile End store. 12.9 128gb WiFi only 384
I and my mate got iPad Pro 9.7 cellular 256 GB each for £405 from Westfield Stratford Store. There were still couple left but 128 GB cellular version for £367
"Apple" and "Reduced to Clear" Terms that'll be seen together with increasing regularity hehe. (cheeky)
Getting quite hard to find these now. Most stores have sold what they had.
Bit harsh. Are puns not allowed?
Fanny ! .... That do ya ?
Surely inclusive and including amount to the same thing so...... Why mention? Good Price
Great find, excellent deal.
Relatively high end games, office work, emails, Web surfing (many tabs at once for research) , movies, multitasking, streaming music and feeding other media streamers, multiple organizational and shopping/searching apps, using as a standalone speaker for music when away from a decent setup. Just about every genre of usage.
nothing's better value than free where tablets are concerned! Thankyou, Nescafe, for giving me one of them :)
So how can £50 amazon tablet be better then free iPad?
I used both iOS and android but just curious if you never tried the Pixel C? I love mine. I accept it's not quite as fast as newer iPads but it's as dam near a perfect android tablet (bar pen support). I use that for reading and KODI and my iPad Pro for writing applications. Either way this is a good deal for a very nice screened product.
Ok whatever! You enjoy your amazon piece of .....
