If you are using a Mac, you don't have to download anything to check the shutter actuation count.
Open the image with the Preview application. Then, from the Tools menu choose Show Inspector. Click on the second column (with the letter 'i" in the circle). Click the Nikon column. Then check the value for the ShutterCount.

Just got mine after a week, maybe I should have chosen the faster shipping.
It's in great condition and it has a shutter count of 251.

Just got mine today. Super excited to start shooting with it. Lost my old card reader though :/
Shutter count of 478. Very nice, I will hit that on my first time out with this camera.

There are several web sites that allow you to upload a low-resolution jpeg and it'll get the shutter count from the EXIF data. Just google nikon shutter count. A couple of the sites did not work with the D3200, but one did.
Have you been able to convert a RAW file yet to compare?
I'm not sure what significant advantages this would have over the NEX (which NEX do you have), but the lenses you use with this and with the NEX would have a significant effect on the images you get.
The D3200, while small for a DSLR, is bigger than your NEX. I doubt you'd see a significant advantage of the higher reso sensor on the D3200 until you make much larger pictures with higher quality lenses.

Any improvements in firmware update? I got mine as well, just wondering how you found out the shutter count??
I'm not overly happy with the quality of pics, my Sony NEX seemed to do a better job. Overall, packing was great (no scratches, clean looking device), did get the warranty but still iffy on keeping it...I'm def an amateur but still was expecting to be "blown away" which hasn't taken place yet....will use for another few days before I weigh my options (return or resell).

I upgraded the firmware to 1.0.1 from the Nikon web site:

Glad I jumped on this deal finally. Should be a good beginner DSLR to get me in the game.
Pretty excited to try it out.

This is the second D3200 refurb sale indicative of high returns on this model. Three reasons why I returned mine:
jpegs were soft, RAW is so much better but files are huge and require processing
indoor photos (low light) have a lot of noise (mostly chroma)
24M sensor produces huge files, to me it was not worth extra time it took to move files around or open them
zoom on a kit lens is 2x as hard to turn as it is on Canon kit lens, middle element moved side to side which was disconcerting
no swivel screen
no live ISO indication
no exposure preview
Few things that were better than t3i: grip, weight, speed (zoom in/out in preview for example), superb dynamic range at low ISO, crispy LCD

I called 20 min after i placed my warranty order and it wasn't in their system so they couldn't tell me if they would waive the shipping. Since they're based out of India or Philippines or something, they couldn't give me an educated guess regarding waiving the shipping cost without the order number up and the computer telling them what to say.
I'll have to call back again later to see if they'll waive it but I probably won't since it's not worth the time.

In 4 1 as well.
Joined the VIP Club and got the extended warranty plan. Had to pay $3.35 in shipping which doesn't make sense, but $11 for 1 year warranty still seems like a good deal. I did see one comment in the "reviews" for the warranty that someone was able to call and get the shipping credited back, so I'll try that out tomorrow.
I am slightly concerned that they could give me a hassle with the warranty since it was from the ebay store, and although I bought the warranty plan first and I had gotten confirmation that I ordered the warranty, I haven't actually received anything saying I have this warranty plan. I just don't want them to say something like - well the term of the warranty doesn't start til tomorrow and you bought the camera yesterday, so sorry...I doubt they would do that, but we'll see.
