    I have a total of 3 Nexus 7 tablets now. My grandchildren received their tablets from Santa Claus at Christmas time and they too are loving to use theirs. They are doing school work and reading their AR reading from books we have downloaded. It makes school work easier for them and I can keep up better with them. When they are done they usually put their work on a zip drive and take it and download in the computers at school or either email it to their teachers. I use mine mostly for my google email and playing games. I am sure when I learn everything it can do I will use it more. I like the size and find it easy to carry with me. Enjoying all of our Nexus 7 tablets.

    Screen is good and images are clear and crisp.. The Nexus 7 is easy to operate but the construction should be more robust. My personal concern is that there might be a safety issue if the corners/edges separate further. Not absolutely sure this will happen but there is already some separation after just a few weeks of use. Advise a protective cover that includes corner coverage. Otherwise operates fine thus far. Also advise checking regularly for possible separation of the edges. Recommend with reservations.

    Admittedly the device works great out of the box, but the data is clear: more than 50% of these devices fail within 6 months. Glitches are expected in new technology but this is outrageous. Of course, you can contact ASUS customer "support" but I found it as helpful as the cable company - incompetent.

    I have been impatiently waiting to get one of these and I'm glad I did. This is far better than the version my friend has. The only thing that I wish I had was a camera on both sides. I'm not much for taking pics of myself, and it's difficult to take normal pics with. I would also suggest someone take more interest in the apps in the play store. Some of t them are very deceptive. I'm not sure what the process is for getting an app published, but it seems as though the process needs some checking into. Other than these two things, I absolutely love this device. I've only used my laptop twice in a month.

    I love this 7 inch tablet and the pure Google experience, I wish more apps in the Google play store were optimized for a tablet and I wish more apps were compatible with the device. I am sure this will change later as more people get the device and developers develop native apps that don't look like blown up versions of the phone app.The lack of expandable storage and wifi only is a significant drawback, but overall, I really really love this tablet especially when I am at home sitting in bed. It's lighter and easier to just pick up and use. It's not as big or as heavy as my ipad, which makes it really easy for me to hold while laying down.

    I love this tablet. It's super fast, has great battery life, and the screen is very near apples retina displays. My only problem is keeping my kids sticky hands off of it, and getting them to realize that it's DADDIES toy... :-)

    Nexus 7, 32GB, gives me the versatility in a compact form that permits me to do both business and personal computing/internet-related tasks. I take it everywhere instead of 17.3" laptop!

    This 7 inch tablet was a replacement after my 10 inch Transformer Prime was stolen. It is extremely good for what it is. It is a very good value at half the price of the Transformer but, as one should expect, it does not have all the capabilities of the more expensive model.

    I'm using this little tablet for organization, scheduling and my calendar, e-reader, games, music, syncing with my Mac. The only major drawback is there are too many apps to pick from. You can spend a lot of time reading, download and trying an app. There are so many that are free you can get rid of the ones you end up rejecting. I am looking forward to being able to sync with my Mac for PowerPoint presentations and controlling my Mac by remote. The battery life has been good. It last all day under heavy use. Most are not going to be used like that anyway. Also, my next area to venture into will be a Bluetooth keyboard.
    Our school is considering these for our younger students because of the reasonable cost. Our Middle and High School are "one to one" with Macs.

    This tablet is magnificent. Very easy to set up and use right away. Great battery life (about 10 hours). The jelly bean operating system is so easy and efficient. ASUS makes a great product. I have the 10 inch ASUS Transformer and like this device 10 times better.
    Don't over pay for the Apple device. This Android product is much easier to useand has plenty of apps. The 32 GB is such a value at this price. I tried the Kindle fire before this device and this Nexus 7 wins hands down. If you can get your hands on one, you won't want to put it down.

    I was very excited about getting my first tablet, and the Nexus 7 did not disappoint. I haven't run it completely through its paces, but have downloaded some of my own books and video, as well as using Chrome extensively and checking in on my email multiple times a day.

    I've ordered a couple of USB OTG cables, but haven't yet tested the ease of using flash drives as spare storage.

    All in all, for both Web browsing and reading email, this tablet shines. The on-screen keyboard is of course slower to type on than a physical keyboard, but with a strong Wi-Fi connection, browsing is otherwise nearly as speedy as I expect from a 30Mb wired connection. Writing lengthy emails likewise is less than efficient. But I find the form factor to be a slam dunk for getting through the inbox. The screen is big enough to show all that you need to see in most cases without scrolling, and managing labels is a breeze.

    I love my new tablet. It's fast, efficient and fun to use. It was very easy to set up and to learn how navigate for those not already familiar with Android systems. Founds lots of great apps in Google Play and can do everything I need to. Only found a few misc apps that we use on the iPad that aren't available yet. Hopefully as the tablet gains popularity, the market for apps will grow. Haven't found a cover we like yet since there aren't as many cool accessories out there yet. The Nexus actually feels more sturdy than the iPad so I have been OK without a cover for general use at home. My only true disappointment is the speakers aren't great, but they're not bad either. Obviously the screen resolution is not as good as the iPad but to be honest it hasn't been an issue for me. I am glad that we paid a little more to have the 32 GB memory since I can see how easy it is to fill up with all the things we're using it for. It actually seems to be working faster on WiFi so it's been more efficient to use. I use a lot of Google apps so that may be part of the ease too. I'm starting to like it more than my husband's iPad! Overall, it's great tablet esp. for the price.

    The Nexus is a great tablet. It is well constructed, feels good in your hand. The screen is bright & detailed. It is fast in response time & has no issues with any app I found for it.

    One of the best parts of Android tablets is the ability to use other App stores beyond Google's. I have installed the Amazon store & and The Humble Bundle to install apps. This gives you access to more apps, more sales (including free apps) & indie content that might not be available through a one stop shop (such as Apple)

    I am coming from iphone land so there is a little bit of a learning curve. Things that were almost self explanatory on iOS are not as evident on Android. For instance, sometimes apps do not add themselves to the main screen (they can be found in the app list but they should add themselves I feel).

    With Android in general you are given far more customization options (backgrounds, widgets, etc) then you are on iOS. This can be a lot for a new user to get accustomed to. In the end though I believe it will give you a better experience.

    We love this tablet. It is the first one we've owned and was hesitant about which brand to buy, but after much research this is the one that was the best for our purposes. We are amazed at the clarity, speed and ease of use. We plan on using this while traveling to help with directions and information.

    So I waited and waited to buy a tablet. Finally it looks like a smaller tablet would be a good way to watch movies went I travel.

    BIG MISTAKE! Nexus 7 is not the way to go. This is the most frustrating piece of equipment I have ever purchased! If I could find somebody to throw this thing at, I would!

    Will not play WMA files. Tried various apps, but no go. Also, I have a bunch of previously purchased ebooks that I can't use as of right now. Still trying but not looking good as the support is only for things from Google play store.

    My first N7 had to be returned due to speaker issues but the new one's fantastic! EVerything is just too good, except the speaker; a lil higher quality would be better!
    I am an iPhone user and also own Macbook but I hate the limitations of iPad since its a bigger device I want more flexibility, but alas thats not the case ..... so Android's been my Friend for the last two years! :D

    I prefer the Nexus of my previous Samsung Galaxy 2 7" tablet, as much as I hate to admit it, guys!! The Nexus is a more sleeker, smoother feeling, quicker, and offers more apps than my previous Galaxy 2....

    Love just about everything about this puppy, save the fact that pictures & vids look like a dog's breakfast.

    I had been anti- "I", then was forced by my job to get an I-Phone. While I REALLY want to say this box compares with the I-stick, the lack of even basic picture taking kinda makes that difficult.

    I'll say that this is far better than the 3rd choice, HD KINDLE, particularly because there are more APPs & the customizability is far greater with this (IMHO).

    Overall, this is a solid device, at an incredible price, (I got the 32GB) that does everything you want. Just make sure you don't want pics.

    Is much faster than my old tablet. Screen resolutiion is fantastic and able to use the Google Play market where most apps are free (as opposed to Kindles, Nooks or iPads) where apps usually cost money. I've been using it just about every night and find myself not turning on my desktop as often as I used to. This is a great piece...don't hesitate to get one!!!

    I have recommended this to my daughter in law. My grandbaby and I have really enjoyed this product. The graphics and color is great. We have a Ipad that we use all the time. Our HP laptop has died and we need two to use. We swap back and forth with them so we love the veritallity of this product. It also can check all three of our emails that we have and it on the desktop of the nexus so there is no signing in and waiting it is always current with just the icon to clickon.

    I have recommended this product to friends and family and everyone who has purchased it - which is nearly everyone I recommended it to - is very happy with their purchase. The screen is wonderful, the device is fast, and it's running an un-bloatwared copy of the newest version of Android Jelly Bean. The only weakness is that it really does need a case of some sort (all of these devices do), as dropping it destroyed a portion of the LCD screen along the bottom edge. It still worked as a touch screen, you just couldn't see what you were touching.

    I love using this as my portable device to check emails and review AutoCAD files, proof documents, review PowerPoint, maintain calendar, etc. Since I use gmail, Google drive, and other apps that are compatible with this device, it is perfect for my uses. It syncs my contacts and I can easily check multiple email accounts and reply on the spot with very little effort.

    The camera function is not very useful except for Skype and conferencing. For photography, it would be awkward, since it does not have a back facing camera. Getting photos into it takes some extra steps, too since I have to sync my camera to desktop, then to the tablet, but this is not a big obstacle for my use.

    I've had nothing but problems here. First the product was DOA. Next, I was unable to get a refund. Third, they sent an unauthorized replacement to a house where no one would be there for three weeks and CHARGED me for it. I still have not been able to get this rectified.
