    Hi all, I put iOS 5 on my iPad 1 as soon as I could and found it slow and unresponsive. I went back to 4.3.3. I have not tried any updates as this put me off.
    My question is have you found 5.1.1 to be slow or fast or the same as 4.3.3 which i am using now.

    Thx Chris

    my iPad is very slow. I thought it might be because my memory is almost full. The Pulse app is painfully slow!!! I have iPad 2

    Hey Chris-I haven't noticed slowness on my iPad after the update. I can't remember what 4.3.3 was since I actually started at 4.3.5.

    By the way, is this intended to be a Poll Question? Before I move it to general discussion, and want to make certain of it.

    My iPad iOS is running faster than any cheap iPads. I have never issue with iPad sluggishness because I like to use this iPad very much if you want use slightly so always keep space at least 500 MB in your device. If you make your device fully loaded with data so you have to face problems like slow running.

    I also never feel this issue with my iPad. My iPad having its normal speed, from when I bought it, around 1 year ago. This issues may be occur because of less space in the device's memory.

    I am sure it's a memory thing. I can't justify getting a new one as I need to save up for the new iPhone 5 in the Fall!!

    My original fully loaded iPad is crashing all the time

    I feel this was a big change starting around mid march mid aprils os update

    Can not view more than one page on a pdf

    Safari shuts down often
    Screen2 shuts down

    If reverting backwards to a 4.? Os please tell me and i will do so in heart beat

    I assume the new os is optimized for the current new ipad not for original or ipad2

    My second choice to abandon this 1.5 year old tablet and buy current version

    My issue isn't speed, but since I upgraded, I keep having my WiFi drop out. Any one else havingi this issue? Shutting down and restarting does bring it back, but that's not the fix I'm looking for.
