any idea if the battery is new?
I bought a 16GB Nexus 7 new just a few days ago, and I love it - it’s fast, responsive, and the swipe-typing (or whatever they call it) works remarkably well. I paid the list price of $229 since I was in a hurry (and that’s what almost every retailer charges), but I think Best Buy has it online for $199. For that price, it might be worth an extra $30 to get a new unit rather than a reconditioned one.
That’s a video review for the original Nexus 7, not this, the second-generation device. The newer model has the Nexus logo in landscape on the back, a sharper screen, and is noticeably thinner.
I picked up a brand new 32gig for $199 at Staples last week (pricematching a MicroCenter deal which is still valid), and will be receiving a $25 Staples giftcard to boot - pretty sure that promotion is still valid for a few more days as well. For more details, check out:
Still, this is a good enough price that I’d snap one up if I hadn’t already gotten one - I haven’t had it long, obviously, but so far it’s easily the best tablet I’ve ever used. Fast, easy to mod, brilliant screen, and outstanding battery life… the fact that it will continue to receive official updates from Google for years is also a big selling point IMO.
Think my staples would fall for that, seeing as I’m about 1000 miles away from the closest microcenter?
Don’t let them see the “in-store only” part and you’ll probably be fine - the manager I talked to looked at my printout for about 2 seconds before going “yeah, we’ll match that,” seemed like they were thrilled to get my business at all.
Same. Got mine Friday from Amazon for about $227 and I love it. Such a gorgeous, crisp, clear screen, and like you said, fast, responsive, and the Google Keyboard makes me take back my long-held hatred of touch screen typing. It’s also got pretty good cameras, with the front-facing camera being of decent quality and the rear camera taking incredibly sharp, great-looking pics. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Great tablet, not bad price and factory reconditioned is usually pretty good. Got one off Woot a few months ago (when it was $20 more) and very pleased with it.
On that note though, the price is likely to fall even lower in the coming months when the next generation comes out.
The ASUS Google Nexus 7, 7-Inch, 32GB tablet is on Amazon new for $161:
And a shellshocker deal from another company has a new ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown for $150.
So why so much for a r_e_f_u_r_b?
[MOD: Those are older models than what we are selling.]
Because both of those are 1st Gen and this is a 2nd Gen would be my guess…
Price difference new vs reconditioned:
-16Gb $223 New(amazon) vs $169 woot
-32Gb $239 New(amazon) vs $199 woot
…might be worth it to get reconditioned.
My review comes from my recent experience where I had the pleasure of using this device for 60 days for a few hours per day. Also, I worked with and supported a team (of 120) who were using the tablet for 7 hours a day for the same period of time.
Below are my findings:
+The device is light and easy to hold in one hand.
+Hardware buttons work well.
+Wifi and cell reception are acceptable.
+Device is tough. Handled cold temps and drops pretty well. (With cases).
-The screen proportions are off, it’s too narrow. (Using google spreadsheets on drive, I found myself wishing there was an extra bit of screen real estate. A wish I never had to make while doing the same thing on an iPad mini).
-Battery Life: Our devices couldn’t make it through a full day of use with out being recharged. (Our use was pretty extensive… heavy GPS, Cell Radio, and Camera usage.)
-Screen responsiveness was overall less than an iPad mini that we also used.
If you can afford it, opt for the iPad mini. The screen dimensions made it a lot easier to view and manipulate content vs the nexus 7. Other then that, get this if you are really serious about customization and not just a casual customizer. I’d say this is a solid tablet, but still falls in 2nd to the iPad mini.
I did the same thing a few weeks ago (two days after buying the 32gb version from woot for $219 (damnit woot) but they had a $30 off tablets over $149 coupon going as well. A little trial and error with Staples on the phone and I got the 32gb (new this time) for $170 plus $11 for shipping.
Can anyone share their experience with refurbished electronics purchased from Woot? Or maybe the general Woot populations feeling toward them?
It’s been a while since I’ve bought anything from Woot
I bought a refurbed Nexus 10 back in May from Woot and it’s still going strong. I haven’t had any issues with it. I’m probably in for 1 on this since my wife needs a tablet
