Reviewed by Chris Haines (Currently owns)

I've owned my 1st generation iPad for over a year now and have thoroughly enjoyed using it. I use it primarily for entertainment purposes (almost entirely as a video player through Netflix, Hulu or iTunes), but have found it great for note taking and gameplaying as well. There are obvious design and display advantages to the newer generations, but functionally speaking the original iPad really does the trick for me. My only reason for upgrading might be for a data plan, but I don't find myself using it enough at this point to justify upgrading when this satisfies my needs perfectly.
