iPad 3 - Page 41

post #601 of 736
How much storage do you guys find yourselves using?

I was thinking of getting the 16 as I don't plan on putting a ton of stuff on it (handful of games and other apps, 2-3 movies at a time), but considering how much space a couple HD movies and games could take up I'm wondering if I should maybe go up to the 32 ( but the cheap ass in me doesn't want to spend the $ for the 32 if I don't really need the extra storage).

Apps designed for the new retina display tend to take up more space too. You could get by with 16 gigs, but honestly for $100 more I would go 32.

imo, If you're buying movies and intend on keeping a collection on the iPad, 32 probably won't even be enough.

 

Go with 16 and take the time to manage what's on it and move it to your comp, etc.

Yeah I don't intend on keeping a bunch on there. I'd just rotate 2-3 so that i'd have some options to choose from on trips (as you don't usually have access to wifi/4g on busses and planes) But if a HD movie takes up 4gigs each, just two and half of the 16 is already gone...

Spend the $100 for peace of mind IMO. My original iPad was 10 GB's of apps alone. A few magazines, a few games (not many), some news apps, video players, etc. It adds up quick.

My colleagues Jason Snell and Lex Friedman came to similar conclusions. Jason wrote, “Once you get a load of that Retina display, it’s hard to go back to anything else.” And Lex noted that, “If you envision yourself primarily reading on your new iPad, you may well benefit from getting that new iPad and its Retina display.”

I go a step further: The new iPad is the best device I’ve ever read on.

Does anyone else get insanely slow YouTube speeds on their iPads? I have a fast Internet connection so that's not the issue. It also buffers fine on my laptop.

It seems to be an issue with the older iPads and one solution is to change the DNS server for your router. I've tried that to no avail!!,

Mine loads fine as far as I can tell.

It's slow on both my iPad and iPhone 4 from time to time, I have not updated iOS for sometime on the iPhone.

Weird. I find it works well. Are you both on Wi-Fi?
post #611 of 736
Mine is fine, exceptionally so compared to my first gen iPad. I used 4G, not wifi.
post #612 of 736
WiFi, not 4G. I will activate 4G next month.

Wish I had an answer for you guys. Just do some creative Google searches and I am sure something will come up if it's a common issue.
