I'm not sure what you are looking for... obviously you know the prices of new iPhones and iPads. Are you looking for refurbished or used devices?

I did not know whether a used Apple I pad was better than a refurbished one and would value your opinion and experience.

OK "refurbished" generally implies it has gone through some kind of repair and testing and they usually will have a short warranty included.... a "used" device is what it is and you are stuck with it so in general "refurbished" is better if from a reputable company.
