    fantastic tablet

    |
    Posted .

    This is my second nexus 7 tablet. To be clear this one is an additional one for the kids, not a replacement. The thing that is great about this tablet is that the specs on this thing still out pace many of the current big name competitors even though this is one generation behind. this makes the price point very palatable. the build quality on this is great. it feels sturdy in your hands and the back is rubberized to keep from slipping from your hands. it is much better than some of the other ones out there which tend to feel like the back panel is made of cheap plastic. even though this is a refurb you would never know. it looks and acts exactly the same as the one i bought brand new. comes with the factory box and paperwork. you simply can't go wrong with this. the only thing i would like to see on this would be a micro sd memory slot to be able to expand memory. most people will never need that but it would still be a nice feature.

    Rerfurbished - everything worked

    Posted .

    I actually wanted a Nexus 7 Mobile, what I got was a Nexus 7 WIFI. I have already dual booted it, but will wait till Touch for Nexus 7 Tablet is closer to finished. The tablet works great with my WIFI hotspot. I'm hoping to run apps for Android and Ubuntu Touch. I want to use it as a client to my laptop computer running Ubuntu 13.10. I also hoing it will serve as a TV remote of some sort. Can't beat the price, and I have tried. Lots of possibilities.

    Worked great. My son loves it. However several days ago it died out of nowhere. It went into a startup phaze and will not stop until the battery goes out. Really disappointed. Going to take to store and see what they will do to resolve..

      Dear Valued Customer,

      I'm glad that you are loving the tablet. I do understand your concern regarding the system rebooting continuously. Please try to disconnect the AC adapter and let the unit drain for 24 hours to reset and clear the memory and try it again. After doing this, please reconnect your AC adapter then power on the unit. If the problem persists, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3389336 on the subject line.

      Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

    Good deal - minor performance issues

    |
    Posted .

    Definitely a good deal for the price, good for just about anything you would use a tablet for. A few quirks though, tends to lag when trying to multitask. Also, putting the speaker on the back of the device wasn't the best idea, sound gets muffled if you put it down or block it with a case.

    Still waiting for one that works

    Posted .

    I did enough advanced research on refurbished Asus Google Nexus tablets (1st gen) to know there is a higher than average problems with these refurbished products across multiple retail outlets. That said, when I got the unit, it wouldn't turn on or charge. I did a factory reset, and was able to get the unit to start, but the first charge to get to 100% took a ridiculous 3 full days. I installed all OS updates, but the unit still (1) Won't charge if it's powered on, and (2) only goes to 50% after 8 hours of charging, and stays there. This was our one Christmas gift for my daughter, and she's disappointed that it will need to go away for a while (5-10 days) to get a replacement refurbished unit. Given the reviews across multiple stores for the refurbished units, I don't hold out a lot of hope that it will be better. I don't know if the poor refurb is manufacturer Asus's fault, or a second party in-between them and Best Buy. Regardless, Best Buy should not be selling non-functioning products. I will probably give Best Buy and Asus 1 try to make this better, then I'll look at better tablet options.

    Beware of Best Buy refurbished items.

    Posted .

    This is a great product when you have one that actually works. I bought these two because of the price. I knew that the items were refurbished. But what I didn't know was that Best Buy was going to send me two broken units. The first one powered on, took an update and never turned back on. The second one has a problem with the wireless n-adapter inside of it. Its broken. So I only get wireless g/b. I took the first one back and they told me the soonest they could get me one was on the 20th. What kind of service is that? I'm on my way to take back the other unit right now. Best Buy needs to really check there items if they're going to resell them to people.

    Best Mini Tablet For Your Money!

    Posted .

    Great tablet, my third one for the family. It does everything others do, but at a fraction of the cost. Refurb unit functions as a new unit, and as far as I can tell, it looks brand new. There was no visible usage on the Nexus.
