    Beautiful tablet

    I love my new Nexus 7! The screen is vibrant and clear! It was simple to set up and use. I thought it would be primarily my new e-reader, but I have been using it in place of my laptop quite frequently. It's a great travel buddy! My only minor complaint is in the comfort of holding it. Without a case, I found it a bit uncomfortable in my hand. The back is slightly rounded rather than squared, so it is a little difficult to keep from sliding. The case has solved that problem.

    Compact and Efficient

    This is my first tablet, and I'm very pleased with it. The size is great - small without being difficult to see (I wear glasses, so the sight thing can be an issue at times). On more than one occasion, the Nexus has been a life-saver, allowing me to access important emails and documents easily because it syncs up with such Google services as Gmail and so on. Because I am a researcher and writer, I sometimes wish that it was easier to edit on the tablet, but I suppose that will improve with time. Overall, I definitely recommend this tablet.

    Good product

    I use this product for nursing school. I am an Apple user and wanted to branch out. Medium learning curve. This is my second Nexus tablet in a two month period. An hour after I set up my gmail acct, I received an email from Google and was told someone had tried to use my password from an IP address in India! Changed my password. Google stopped the hack, but a day later a virus took over, literally. It looked like someone was using my tablet, I.e. typing, swiping, pulling down menus, looking at a selection of movies, "send me a message," scary! I didn't have any personal info, no pictures, etc. on tablet. Best Buy cleared everything, reset the system, and ask me to try it again. I returned it in a week and they replaced it immediately. The geek squad had me set up a new password ASAP! New tablet has worked well!

    My kids love it

    Got two of these, one for each kid. They can use it for everything they want to do: watching videos, movies, playing games and internet searches. The major problem we have seen with both, which leads me to believe that this is common to the product and not secondary to misuse is that the receptacle for the charger becomes damaged very easily. My youngest had to have his replaced because it would no longer form a good contact with the charger and we could not charge it. I watch my kids put the charger in and they are very gentle and make sure not to force it or insert at an angle. We are now down to one functional charger for both devices. That said, Best Buy's customer service was excellent and replaced the full product at no cost to me roughly 7mo after the initial purchase. I would consider buying this product again and feel committed to Best Buy based on my experiences as a consumer with the store.

    Best tablet ever made

    Ignoring size, this is the best tablet made. The screen is the best screen of any tablet, far better than retina. The new version of the Android OS on it makes it superior to any iOS device and as good as the new iOS that is about to release. The stereo sound on it is fantastic. I don't need to plug in speakers when it is just me viewing it. I Chromecast from it to my big TV all the time now, which throws its media up onto a big screen without wires. This is the tablet equivalent of the Samsung Galaxy S4--the best bang for the buck and superior technology in every category that matters. This is the best sub-$200 purchase I have ever made.

    I was looking for a tablet for e-mail, downloading and reading documents for my PhD program, reading journal articles, etc. Of course, the occasional Candy Crush is also nice. The Google Nexus 7 was the best value for money, and with a price match and rewards certificates, it was even better! This gets great battery life even when attached to a Bluetooth keyboard, so I couldn't ask for more! I've already recommended this to several friends!

    After a rocky start where I was getting keyboard errors, and I could not connect to the internet bacause of a corrupted android file, I had to do 2 factory resets to clear these problems. Now that I am on Jelly Bean 4.3, I haven't had any further issues. I love the 7 in size, perfect for reading, not too heavy for extended holding. I love the google tools and availability of apps. Gooogle backup is excellent, I was able to reclaim all my apps anf pictures on factory reboot. You can buy almost 2 of these for one iPad Mini. It does take a long time to charge but I plan it right so I dont have to charge when I want to use it. Our Motorola has a longer power cord which would be nice but for the product and price, I'll take the short cord and use an extension cord.

    My first tablet and I've been looking at many. The Google Nexus 7 FHD has a wonderful screen. I wish it would have native Flash but most tablets don't . There are workarounds. Very light and has awesome sound. I am extremely pleased with this tablet.

    PROS -great price -great camera on both back and front -syncs with no problem to google or other accounts -great battery life -full HD 1080p screen, With the best touch response I have ever used. -super easy to share pictures -Better Apps then apple will ever have. -Great Android operating system, with SO MUCH CUSTOMIZATION -Can have multiple user accounts and account priorities. -Six people use this product and it has taken a couple of drops from low distances without a stutter or crack. -Matched with a MOKO case and i an convinced it is indestructible. CONS -No SD card slot, but is super easy to connect to computer and comes with cord. I would buy this product over and over. Google has perfected the tablet at a cost that is a steal.

    I am enjoying everything about this great tablet. Both cameras are high quality. The front facing camera is perfect for video chatting. The resolution of the screen is higher than my television! But what I enjoy the most about this tablet is that it's pure android. Since its a Google tablet, the OS is in its purest form, which makes it 100% comparable with the hardware. So, no glitches. I would recommend this tablet to anybody looking for a trouble- free piece of gear.

    Great Tablet for Anyone

    No complaints from my family on this tablet only great things to say. My 12 year old son saved up about $200 from Christmas, Chores, and birthday money to buy a tablet. The choice came down to this tablet or a Kindle Fire HDX. We went with this tablet for gaming. Google play is easy to access and the tablet is very strong in speed which is my number one priority. You can always delete and re-install apps from your tablet but if it runs like a snail you can never do anything about it.

    I picked this up for my girlfriend, and she absolutely loves it. I must say that the screen is incredibly sharp. Better than any display I've seen. It is easy and smooth to use, and the girlfriend loves it for using the internet and reading e-books from the local library. It's also portable enough for her to bring in even small handbags. Also, this tablet has some of the best specs out there, definitely at the best price.

    I love it .. was looking to replace my Kindle Fire, which had a cracked screen. I purchased this prior to Christmas and did not expect anyone to be able to help me as it was very busy when I went into the store but to my surprise, one of the guys spent 30 minutes with me and I ended up buying this over the Kindle HDX. The specs were double over any of the other 7in tablets and this comes with the latest Android O/S .. and the screens was incredible! Highly recommend this!

    So far, I am very pleased with the Nexus 7. The screen details and graphics are very clear and concise. Camera takes excellent pictures. Books are easy to read and easy on the eyes. I am still learning how to use some of the features, but the owners manual programmed on the device offers pretty detailed instructions. Over all, I would recommend this item highly.

    This is one of the best tablet for the price. You get a pure Google experience with this tablet without an overlay of bloatware. I own a Samsung SG4 and love it, but sometimes, touchwiz gets on my nerves. With this tablet, I get the lastest OS update...KitKat! I could've went with an iPad mini w/ retina, but I fancy myself as technically advanced and I don't need a dumbed down product. Plus, I like the customization of Android over iOS. The 7" is the perfect size to hold with one hand. The screen and color saturation is amazing! The audio with it's surround sound is unparalleled for a tablet this size. Overall, you won't regret your purchase.

    This is a great little tablet. Anyone not willing to pay for the ipads should go for this tablet. It works just like all androids but better. There was some kinks to work out in the beginning with the setup and updating the OS but if you are used to any of the android OS, it's not a problem to fix. It's been running smoothly since. Great tablet for reading as the screen isn't so small that it's hard to read print. It's also very light and fits into any bag. It also takes great pictures. Even better than some of my Samsung phones..

    From the time I received the Asus Nexus 7 tablet(WIFI model), I have read books on it, watched youtube videos, web browsed, skyped, checked email, listened to music from Google Play music, Saavn, and Spotify. I did more things too, but overall I had no problems running any apps or services. Connectivity never dropped, battery life is awesome (depending on usage as everyone is different). I even upgraded to Android Kitkat (4.4.4) and soon expect to upgrade to the latest and greatest Android Lolipop (5.0.0). This is a very light and portable tablet for on the go people and who want the best of the Google's Pure Android Experience without bloatware on their tablets.

    This is my first tablet and my first Android device. I love it! It's fast. Websites, downloads, apps, boot-up, everything is fast. The graphics are really clear and sharp even tiny letters are readable. I can customize my android with themes, which is cool. I could never do that on iOS without "tweaking" it. I can't believe how many hours I've spent "tweaking"my iOS when I could of just got an Android. The Nexus is better, more fun, and cheaper than iOS, well worth it!

    Almost perfect

    This tablet is a great buy for the price. It's perfect for browsing the internet, reading books, browsing social media, and even playing games. The sound is fairly good for rear facing speakers. The Android operating system on this device is very responsive and battery life is fairly good. Typically I can get two to three full days of browsing the internet, reading, streaming music, and gaming. For just over $200 you can't go wrong. My two complaints are that the device does not have expandable storage, and I had to send my first Nexus 7 back to Asus for an RMA because my tablet would not turn on. The Asus support was great. I sent my tablet in for repairs and had a new one shipped back to me in less than two weeks. I do not have any problems with the current one.

    A great little tablet and a great value to boot. I've used a Kindle and iPad mini and I like the Nexus the best. It has a responsive and consistent operating system. The screen is great as well. It's light and easy to handle. The screen is smaller than the iPad mini and doesn't have the same apps but it' costs half as much. If you don't need to sync with other Apple products and can live with the slightly smaller screen then you will like the Nexus.
