He said he's "leaving to make the trade" so he gets to inspect it first. I don't see any problems with this deal as long as the OP likes tablets and has a use for them.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the iPad uses a mini-SIM so you might not be able to use your current SIM without modification.
Any particular reason you'd like a tablet? I personally think they're very expensive toys. They fill little if any gap in our needs; they aren't the best for any form of productivity and a little too small to watch something with other people on. The only use I'd have for it is to read papers/books etc on long journeys. Even then it's cheaper just to buy a £1 paper every day of the year.

I didn't ask for a receipt. I was going to, and told him I'd email him the copy of my receipt for the monitors if/when he buys the 3rd one. I'll ask then about the receipt. It had the original box, and the plastic film was still on it. Personally about the guy; I met him at his job, a Vietnamese restaurant. He was a young Asian man, very friendly, and nothing shady coming off of him.I haven't checked the sim slot, since I'll mainly be using it at home, coffee shops, that sort of thing. As mentioned above, I have an HP Touchpad, I've always wanted to try an iPad. While I'd probably never set foot in the store, they make solid products, I just don't like their business practices relating to wanting to OWN everything. I also work at an extremely boring 3rd shift job and while I usually bring my laptop for the days I work, having something lighter to take sometimes is nice.

So you'd agree the exchange of good has equal or damn close to equal value?

I was worried about craigslist a long time ago. I've had nothing but positive experiences with numerous things on CL. Just have common sense, and be honest.

Exactly my point.

What I guess I should have been clearer about was just the economic equality of the deal. As in, are two 3 month old dell monitors that sell for 239 brand new from dell worth about the same as an iPad 2.

I haven't had much time to play with it, since the cord he gave with it was his old one, and wouldn't charge. He's stopping by tomorrow to drop that off to me, but I couldn't wait, and since it was low since he hadn't charged it since getting it, I went to Wal-mart and grabbed a Belkin charger. I plan on playing with it a little before I sleep today, and taking it with me tonight at work as well.

* Ironic that I know what a hat trick is, especially when I don't like sports. wink.gif

Good deal or stay away?
Edit: I know nothing about iPads, but if it's a 3g, then it uses a carrier, and it has to be the same as my carrier for me use it, right?

wow, my bad, I must have missed the part in the OP where you said "I need in depth reasoning on whether or not a used iPad2 is worth the market value of 3 Dell monitors". I could have sworn you simply asked "good deal or stay away?" But after re-reading your OP, I can now clearly see that you didn't ask for a simple "good deal or stay away" answer but instead wanted an in-depth reasoning behind the answer rolleyes.gif

My opinion is firstly based on the premise that tablets are worthless. You really can't do much work on them, they're too small to do anything useful from a business perspective and they're too big and bulky to carry around for reading ebooks or watching movies. If I have a couple hours to kill I can just as easily watch a movie or read a book on my Galaxy Nexus, and it's not anything extra that I have to carry around. If I have to work on the road or while traveling, I'll take my 15 inch (I think?) widescreen laptop with me, and have enough screen real estate to actually be productive, along with a keyboard that allows me to type almost error free at a rapid pace. Then again, I suppose that's because I work at my job, and don't get paid to watch movies and waste time, so I need a machine that can actually do something in a timely manner to get work done. rolleyes.gif

My second premise is that an iPad2 is not worth the money, new or used, even if you disagree with my first premise. There are a good number of tablets on the market that can be had for less money, that are just as good or better from a hardware perspective. I have a few friends with tablets, and for all the buzz about how gorgeous iPad displays are, I don't find them to be any richer or deeper in color than a lot of other tablets, regardless of the task at hand. A caveat to this, I haven't actually seen the new iPad3 displays but I do hear those are pretty incredible. Apple wants you to pay through the nose for something that, frankly, just isn't worth it. I mean, a refurbished 1st gen iPad is selling for 420 bucks, iPad2 they're wanting 700 dollars for. Honestly, for what it is and what you can do with it, those prices are ridiculous. So basically, if your heart is really set on getting a tablet or an iPad (more specifically) then you should just sell your monitors instead of selling one and trading the other two for an iPad2, and pony up an extra 50-100 bucks and get the iPad3. More efficient, faster processor iirc, and from the reports a display that blows the iPad2 out of the water.

My premise is still that tablets are a waste of money, and really serve no purpose, but if you're going to get one I would say you can spend less money for a tablet with the same quality of an iPad2, or if your heart is set on an Apple product pony up a few extra bucks for an iPad3.

As for your service question, I don't actually know the answer to that. I've heard from many a person that it has to match otherwise it won't work, but that explanation doesn't make sense to me because I'm able to get data access on my phone when I'm in AT&T service (both 3G and LTE), as can my wife on her iPhone. Maybe tablets are different, and I suppose it depends on what network you have and what network this device is suppose to work on, as I think Verizon will work on AT&T but I've heard AT&T devices will not work with Verizon due to compatibility issues between GSM and CDMA. I'm sure this particular answer isn't "in-depth" enough to answer your question, as I'm sure I've simply mis-read your post that said what carrier you use and what carrier the device uses, but as you can tell I'm clearly an idiot who doesn't answer questions as they're presented rolleyes.gif

Verizon iPad found to be compatible with AT&T's 3G network

second quick google search discussing the service question

This.

OP, when all is said and done, ASSUMING THAT HIS iPAD 2 is LEGIT, you're getting the better end of the deal economically.
