Many technology reviewers agree that the iPad Air is the best tablet on the market currently.

The iPad Air was rated "excellent" by PC magazine. PCMag.com reviewer Sascha Segan said the Air has good camera, top apps, and its LTE version works with every U.S. carrier. The Air's price tag, $499, is its biggest drawback, while its pages and numbers "don't measure up to Microsoft Office for productivity."

"The iPad Air is Apple's attempt to make the tablet disappear," Segan's review said. "The result is an unusually slim, well-built platform for the best array of apps in the business. It's a full-fledged computer that's now so thin and light that you won't even notice it's in your bag. Like every iPad before it, it's striving to become the magic book with eternally rewriting pages that seers and science fiction writers have predicted for millennia."

Digital Spy's Mayer Nissim said the iPad Air was rated the top digital tablet, according to its reader's poll of 22,600 respondents.

The iPad Air, which earned 47.5 percent of the best tablet vote, outpaced the iPad Mini with Retina Display (16.8 percent), the Samsung Galaxy Tab (11 percent), Kindle Fire HDX (9 percent) and the Nexus 7 (7.4 percent).

According to the StreetInsider.com
, in Great Britain, the iPad Air has been dominating sales on eBay.

"While eBay isn't the primary source for sales info for a company, the site can be useful when gathering information about consumer sentiment," StreetInsider.com reported. "The site said listing for iPad Air tablets outnumbered those for iPad minis by a four-to-one ratio. In total, 1,000 new iPad Air listings were made."

Sebastian Anthony, of ITProPortal.com, said the iPad Air's light weight design and feel continue to be a favorite for consumers and reviewers.

"Across the board, reviews praise the iPad Air’s weight loss and overall change in design," Anthony wrote. "After four generations of the same inch-thick bezel around the entire screen, the iPad Air now has a thinner bezel down two sides, just like an iPad mini (and indeed, almost every review points out that the Air looks and feels like a larger iPad mini)."
