I have this tablet, have loved this tablet, but it is feeling old. It takes a long time turning on and is laggy compared to newer devices. What I still love about it is the screen looks great, very portable, android operating system, and using as an ebook reader. At 32 GB the size is great to store movies and other media for places like an airplane where you may not have wifi. I think I missed my resell window.
At this price I would buy something newer. It probably won't be long until a new Nexus device will be out.
most don't NEED the 2nd gen though. heck of a deal.
I would argue that most don't NEED a tablet at all...but if you're going to get one, spend the extra money on something more current, that provides a vastly better user experience. If someone is thinking about blowing money on a non-essential toy, I'm just saying they should seriously consider working an extra shift at Taco Bell to get the all around better, newer version.
I'm not sure if this has been fixed in newer versions, but we have had a recurring problem with our first gen Nexus 7. Ours has gotten stuck in the bootloader (multicolored X or 4 circles) several times. Sometimes we are able to reset it and get it working again, but it is looking like we may have to send it in for the 3rd time now (actually, not sure that it is still under warranty...). It takes them a few weeks to get it back to you, and you lose any unsaved data. My wife is getting tired of dealing with it honestly, and I am definitely tired of trying to resurrect it.
Just a heads-up. I know others have had this issue too.
I got one of these last year which I sold almost immediately because the screen was dull and the unit was slow. I echo many comments around here - I'd pass, especially at this price point (too high IMO).
