Apple iPad 3rd Gen. 32GB 4G Capable with Retina Display & Keyboard Case
Have it Love it!
I got this last Christmas. I have not put it down since! I take pictures with it all the time and they come out great. Since I didn't get the color I had ordered QVC sent an extra cover and then sent the color I ordered when it came in. You cannot beat the customer service at QVC. I work in a customer service world and QVC does go above and beyond to make their customers happy. I am so happy that I got this one with the 32 GB.
I love this iPad. I can't put it down. Only thing is I would have gotten more mg then 16 since I like taking pics with it.I never use the keyboard so wouldn't get it with the keyboard to me it's easier to use keypad on iPad.
Slow to like, but now love it.
I really had my doubts when I first got the Ipad. I thought I had overspent and would not use it enough. Well it's been 6 months now and I find I use it far more often than I do my laptop and Iphone. It's just the right size and rarely crashes. When I need to do serious work, such as type a grant request for work or other "office" type work, I go to my laptop. When I just want to check email, surf the net, play a game, do Facebook, etc., I always use my Ipad. Is it worth $900 dollars? No, but it's worth $500 easy.
I have the 1st generation iPad and found this one too bulky. I returned it and bought one from the Apple Store instead. The model from QVC must be a little older as my current 3rd generation iPad has the smaller charging port. The extras seemed cheap, would not recommend this configuration. It is overpriced for what was in the box.
I couldn't be happier with this item. Mine arrived all brand new and in great shape. I kept the boxes just in case but I've been delighted with everything!! Since I have the iPhone, using the iPad is a natural. It's an incredible piece of electronics and I especially appreciate the six easy pays!!
A little disappointing
I ordered this as a gift and unfortunately I have to return it to Q. It overheats on the left side and runs very slow. I called Apple to inquire about the heat and they said "in some Ipads this is normal because of the system requirements". I feel for the price I am paying, it should not have any issues at all and should be as fast as lightening! It takes many minutes to load after being turned off and the battery life on this Ipad is only about 2 full hours.
I absolutely love my iPAD. I wanted a tablet I could depend and rely on. Apple has been around along time and has had years of experience and feedback to produce an outstanding product. I had it up and running in minutes. The Bluetooth keyboard works great, (so long as you follow the instructions) and is made of high quality durable material. The accessory speaker is audible, not very loud and saves using up tablet battery and speaker. I opt to use FM transmitter in the car and my 30 watt Coby speaker system at home. The auto headrest mounted case keeps the iPad well protected and is comfortable to use in your lap as the keyboard case seems bulky for everyday use. The iPad 3 is my second Apple product next to my ipod nano. The display is crisp and clear and very responsive. With the addition of Safari it is simple to navigate the Web. The apps available make the iPad very versatile for educational and professional use. Checking email and keeping in touch with Facebook is a breeze. I cloud keeps my documents and pictures safe and easy to access on other devices.
I usually love everything I get from QVC until I ordered and received this "Apple New iPAD 32 GB & 4G Capable device". When I received the order the shipping box was in great condition! I was excited to open it up and check out my new iPAD! Well...all of the interior boxes were damaged! The accessories kit had obviously been a returned item because all of the parts inside were in disarray. The ear buds had ear wax on them and the cords were tangled, not nicely wound as if new! I had assumed that by advertising it as a "Apple New iPad that I was receiving an iPad 3, WRONG! For the first time, I am extremely disappointed in QVC and am packing up my purchase and getting ready to send it back!
