Will buy a second one soon...

I was actually waiting for Google Event to announce this product and as soon as it was out, I bought it at B&H (which had the best price at the time). And well I must say I was not deceived when I got it in my hands. Neat little product. The screen is so crisp and so bright and the quad core processor is just great - never lags or feels sluggish like some other cheaper tablets out there. The 7" screen feels just the right size for me. I already had an android phone, so the OS was not new for me and I really enjoyed installing my already purchased apps - without having to pay for it again - since they were both linked to my gmail account. And how these apps and games feel good on a bigger screen! I have a couple of friends - green with envy - who are telling me they'll buy it very soon from B&H too.

But there's one thing - if you want to buy one, buy the case or sleeve or whatever you need to protect it... First of all, the screen just loves your figerprints so I'm constantly cleaning it :-(. Second, after one week, due to absence of sleeve again, it slipped and fell from the dashboard in my car, a drop of 70cms on plastic and rubber, and one side of it had popped open slightly. I just put it back in place but makes me wonder what would have happened if it fell on concrete or on the road or a higher drop.
Ah and one last thing with such a big device I was expecting better battery life and lesser charging time - but I guess the bigger screen puts a toll on the battery - Right now, I have to charge it almost every night - but it must be said that I use it a lot presently - wifi on all day long, news feeds and email, games at night, gps sometimes...

Conclusion: Well despite these minor cons, I would say Go and get it while you can. Christmas is coming - buy a second one for your kids or family too if you want - that's the best quad core tablet you can get at this price. period.

Factory Repaired Twice - Dead Again

I really like the (Asus) Nexus 7. However, it died (no response at all), went to the ASUS repair, came back. It worked for about a week after the KitKat upgrade and then it would never get past the bouncing colored balls. Then a second trip to the ASUS repair facility. This time it worked for three weeks and is now totally dead again. It is now beyond the 12 month warranty.
I have given up and replaced it with a Nexus 10 -- made by Samsung not ASUS.

    I was especially interested in a high-quality reader and haved not been disappointed. But it handles all challenges from email on. The picture is clear and crisp with colors were well displayed. The large hard drive lets me diversify what I view to many different play and work areas.

      Comments about ASUS 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet with Wi-Fi:

      I bought 3 of these Asus Nexus 7 tabs. The first order, we bought 2 and one worked fine for a brief moment. We charged the two at the very same time, my bf and I. The one that worked fine, the battery icon came on after a minute. The one that didn't turn on, we went to the Asus website and it gave us couple of ways of trying to get it turned on. Unfortunately none of those solutions worked. We went online searching for solutions and found this was a common problem. We returned the defective one the next day without any hassle from B&H.

      We decided to order a replacement because the first one worked fine (I will comment later). When the replacement tablet came in the same thing happened. It did not even show the battery icon. We returned that defective one.

      Now, I'm going to comment on the working one, the only one out of the three. It had a complete full charge after four hours. We started using it and it was responsive. The apps opened when we tabbed on it. The web browser did not lag when surfing online. The browser crashed a few times, mean it just closed out on it's own. Great resolution ease of use but I did not like the set up page at all. The batter life lasted under 4 hours on the first initial run.

      We charged it full again and it worked fine till we drained out the battery to see what it would do. When we tried turning it on, it took a few times pressing the on button a couple or few times.

      We returned the 3rd and last one for a full refund. NO MORE ASUS FOR US!!!

          The first one I ordered did not turn on. B&H replaced it with another one and the same thing happened. It was a huge disappointment. I decided to just return the second one.

                  I am using this tablet almost exclusively for travel. Well, I haven't yet but will :) As a photographer, I was looking for a simple way to make backups of my SD cards. With OTG (usb connection kit) I am able to copy my 16gigs SD card to the Nexus tablet and then switch to a USB key and then copy the 16gigs from the tablet to the USB key. Cheap solution considering the $ needed for a memory dump device.At own a iPad and at first didn't liked the Nexus but now I enjoy it pretty much. It is Google all the way though!

                      I bought it as a live view screen for my Canon 6d and 1dx..works pretty good. Very little lag, and I video record sprint car racing. For the app stuff and internet..I feel it's a little slower at typing then my iPhone (or maybe I just need to get use to the platform of the system). But that's irrelevant because I bought it simply to see a bigger frame than what my canons have. *You have to buy the DSLR control app and USB connector though to use in the way I mention above (only $ all together if I remember correctly).

                            It is a little too smaller than what I would like. I recommend it.

                              I love this tablet! It would be great if the charge would hold for longer though.

                              I use the product in the physics lab; an app allows it go analyze data wirelessly from my physics equipment. I also use it so I can carry around files, like my music collection when I shop while traveling. It is a bit surprising that the camera app and file explorer are missing, but they are easily installed free. OTG cable permits use of USB drives. Couldn't get major ereader app to work. I bought the previous version rather than the latest, saved a lot of money without losing any features I needed.

                                Comments about ASUS 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet with Wi-Fi:

                                I bought this tablet to develop and test an app for Android in addition to iOS. Having used iPads in the past (had bought two iPads before using my Apple employee discount) I'm very impressed with the offering and would recommend it to anyone looking for an entry-level tablet. The form factor is different than iPad and I can see where it might be advantageous. I understand that this is the older model (2012) but it's good to see that the manufacturer is not quick to discontinue older models like Apple does.
