This tablet gets the job done, and is a good value for the price. Using this after having used a 1st gen iPad for a few years took a bit of getting used to, I found the 7" screen a little small for some apps (namely baconreader). It is a good size for reading ebooks as long as you don't need to view PDFs.
This is a great tablet for the price. The screen is exceptional and great for viewing photos or videos. With the openness of Android, this tablet is an exceptional value for the price. I use mine every day.
This is my second tablet, replacing a now-stillborn Playbook. It surfs like a pro, which is mainly what I bought it to do. Youtube, whatever (except Java but who cares?) is handled seamlessly. Apps are great and lots of choices; have one for my Trendnet security cameras and it runs perfectly even while other apps are running. Light and very intuitive to use. Downsides: Google really, really wants your personal information. Hard-sell of Google account, nag screen every time you turn the device on. Finally set one up just to get rid of annoyance. Also, GPS tracking and allowing of websites to turn on the cameras (!!) is default-on. Started digging around the settings and found a bunch of privacy concerns like this (which I disabled). Also, when you first get the device you might want to turn it on for a test drive - don't bother unless you're in range of your wifi. You can't get past the first step without it.

Love this tablet, so much easier and lighter to carry around that a 10". Screen resolution is outstanding, boots up from off in just over 20secs, very responsive and no more lag opening apps compared to my old tablet. Reading books, watching movies, youtube etc is a fantastic. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing a tablet, but spend the extra for the 32gb model as the Nexus doesn't have expandable storage. Free shipping deal with this, and it arrived the very next day!!!!!
I am new to the mobile environment and so far android has been more user friendly than I expected. The OS appears much more flexible than what i have seen from IOS. The tablet responds well and screen looks very good.
overall, i don't regret buying this.It costs about 310$, I would buy even if it's 400$. If you have problems with the gps, download Gps test, and then menu->setting, then on the top "clear AGPS", then "update AGPS", after 15 seconds or so, it will work fine.I recommend using navigon for people in vancouver/richmond/downtown. It works flawlessly without date connection/wifi. Just remember to download the map for Canada.
Great product considering its price, screen and performance. The size is good to fit in one palm. The screen is super clear. When reading eBook, you can feel its beauty. Downloaded a few games to play, performance is very good. I use it to watch YouTube video and read books. Perfect!
