The iPad 3 was Apple's first Retina screen iPad. The quality of the screen is mesmerizing and still stands the test of time by looking great two years after launch. It's also well-designed and robust, with users happy with the way it looks.

One of the primary problems with the iPad 3 is its size and weight. Android tablets have been getting better and better and now compete with the iPad. Apple has rectified this with the iPad Air, which will match the iPad mini 2 in design.

Performance of the iPad 3 is solid and, happily the advent of iOS 7 hasn't caused the dreaded slowdown on the iPad 3, it still runs well.

If there's a couple of areas the iPad 3 suffers it's battery life and value for money. Battery life is reasonable solid but not outstanding. You'll get a full day's use out of it but if you're using 3g that will reduce significantly. It also takes a fair bit of time to recharge meaning you won't be able to blast it for half an hour before you leave the house.

A couple of other things to consider if you're looking to buy and iPad 3 second hand is that it uses the old style 21 pin Apple connector as opposed to the new Lightning one. That means that if you have an iPhone 5S, 5C or 5 you'll have to use different chargers.

    Pros: Amazing, stunning screen, Powerful graphics, Good battery life, Excellent build quality, Good value
    Cons: Poor connectivity, Annoying artificial limitations, Need iTunes to get content on it, No expandable memory, Thicker and heavier than most premium tablets

  • Gregory, 7/17/2014:

    Once again Apple brings out its best tablet to date – it needed something a little extra to push it to five stars, but it's definitely the market leader"
