1.0 out of 5 stars i pad is not new as advertised, 11 Feb 2014
By 
This review is from: Apple iPad 2 16GB (Black, Wi-Fi Only) - Genuine UK Stock (Personal Computers)
Just received my I pad 2 and checked the details. Despite the new box and shrink wrap packaging, the serial no. begins with "DK" and the product code with "RFB". This means that the product is "refurbished and not "new" as advertised. This is not only misleading but also illegal. Shame on you Amazon. This is not the first case mentioned in your reviews. Why don't these people realise that they have legal duties to supply products as advertised.
Refurbished models are significantly cheaper than the £299 that I have just paid. If I had wanted a refurbished I pad then I would have specified that requirement. I will be returning the product asap and referring the matter to Trading Standards.

Absolutely agree those selling refurbished goods need to be forced to detail the fact.
