Unless your iPad2 is 3G (mine isn't) I have found iTunes Match more troublesome than advantageous. Unless there is WiFi in the area I can forget about listening to music and even then, the lag on WiFi is a annoying. I simply went back- after a complete restore as it is difficult to get iTunes Match off of the iPad- to the old fashion method of downloading music directly to the iPad. I can also now go back to using music apps such as djay that were rendered useless with iTunes Match. The iPhone 4S is a different story. Seems to work effortlessly and as described. I'll try again in a few weeks but for now iTunes Match is more of a hassle than it's worth on a no 3G iPad2. If anyone is having better results please share. I hate purchasing a service and not being able to use it to its full potential.
