    Amazon never directly sells the iPad :( Should I just buy direct from Apple ?

    Amazon has seller feedback and reviews ranging back dates to research.

    Otherwise, B&H Photo is a very reputable seller with an extensive history. I have used them many times.

    There are other reputable sellers aside from Apple.

    That is true but the normal review section never says what seller they bought it from.

    Try B&H Photo in New York free expedite shipping no Tax.But wait the new iPad is coming out soon since I went bought one at Best Buy yesterday but planning to return it waiting for the new one soon as prices will be that same or a bit higher .
    But I recommend Apple since they make the best iPads and easy to use.

    PS did not see that someone else recommended B&H Photo ....
    Yes best place to buy unless as twice I bought iPads at eBay at $300-350 cheaper but I think that the seller bought them and screwed up his credit to get cash.
    Last iPad Pro one was 9.7" I pad $425.00 right when it came out and the 12.9" I paid $550 at Ebay both where 128GB

    Just found out if it is fulfilled by Amazon then Amazon takes care of everything!

    It's scary buying iPads from amazon. If you ever check out the1-star ratings, it's enough to give you nightmares.

    what a ripoff!!! When I went to the Apple Store to register this produce and purchase apple Care they could not verify the serial number and could not verify the product even tough it was in an unopened box. I must assume it was not a legitimate Apple product. I then called customer service and returned the IPad. Be ware of knock offs!!!!!!

    The iPad arrived in an evelope, not a box. Did not come with apple charger or lightening cord. Has several blemishes and dents on the corners. Was not described and used in the product description. Disappointed.

    The ipad pro came with a white spot on the screen. I was still willing to keep it until it took hours to charger an would only go to 36%

    1.0 out of 5 starsSucks for web browsing

    Sucks for web browsing. If you like "apps" it's probably fine but this thing is the worst machine to browse the web on because most sites don't even work correctly on it and there are too many ads, even with a "Content Blocker" (I've tried all of them).

    Dolphin Browser makes it barely acceptable if you enable Desktop Mode and ad-blocking. However, you still can't get plugins for it like you can for Chrome on your desktop computer.

    This device could not be activated on a cellular network because it was used and someone never paid for the cell phone service. It was not a NEW device.

    Serious question, Have you ever purchased from Amazon before? Thats how it's always been. If it states shipped from "XYZ", then you're subjected to their return Policy. There is a difference between shipped from and fulfilled from.
