This is the tablet both I and my wife have and we both love it. Availability of alternate builds makes tinkering-me happy and vast availability of games to play addicts my wife. Add in books, movies and video (2560x1600, even better resolution that my $500 monitor at work!!!), easy browsing, etc, etc.

We're happy. If I had the money I'd buy one just as a backup.

$50 more last week? that shouldn't upset anyone.

They're starting to pop up on Ebay at similar prices, though infrequently. $360-380 still seems to be the average range. I'd jump on this without thinking twice if I was in the market for a tablet. I have a Nexus 7 and I'm quite happy with it, so I probably won't be making a tablet purchase for a minute.

I own this one.
This situation is a rare example of where an upgraded version is about to be released and I'm not even slightly tempted to purchase (the second gen nexus tabs). This one is still easily enough.
This thing is lightning fast and the display is utterly ridiculously sharp.

I'd buy it again.
The only down side is a very surprising lack of accessories from Google. There's almost nothing available other than the pogo cable for faster charging (you will need this).

This is a great tablet with an absolutely fantastic screen. At this price it is kind of a no brainer if you need something in your hands ASAP. However, prospective Nexus owners should keep in mind that a refresh is likely to come just about any day now and it may be worth holding out if you aren't in particular need of a tablet just now.

Just a warning, but chances are a new Nexus 10 tablet will be coming out TODAY. They may just introduce the phone and leave it at that, but chances are.....

Yes! I just ordered this! No tax either, while here on woot total would be around $360 after tax + shipping. Just food for thought, Sorry Woot, beat ebay.

$15 more for a new one from ebay (not even counting taxes) wins it for me any day. Now...does anyone have $400 I could borrow?!


Why is it that everytime I click I want one", Woot makes me buy it? Don't they ever just want to know that, "Yes, I want one?" http://www.sflesch.com

@luke975, the $50 lower price could be due to the new one being closer to coming out... or perhaps Woot values a Samsung 90-day warranty (past Woots for this) $50 higher than a Woot 90-day warranty (today's Woot).

If intended, a clever way to discount it further whilst having an explanation for the prior Wooters.

(Thanks for the historical links, @lichme!)

Thanks, I didn't consider the warranty differences.
the fact the new ones closer to coming out doesn't make sense to me as the last one that sold for more was last week, if it would have been a couple months or so, sure that would make sense.

+ And that eBay seller has a 99.3% rating for over 23,000 reviews.

+ Free shipping makes the New unit on eBay only $15 more vs. Woot's refurb with Woot warranty.

But you have to wonder about their claim it is 50% off - did anyone ever really pay $700 for one of these?

I will never buy an Android device again.

I got my first Android tablet for one of the kids a couple months ago.

A lack of ability to restrict what the kids have access to, and - most of all - ads everywhere.

Frequent, irritating, inconvenient, and potentially inappropriate ads. When you most need there to be no ad at all. On a device you PAID for. Screw Android. I hope it rots in hell.

Yeah, iOS 7 sucks too - just not nearly as bad. Maybe I'll have to try a Winblows one soon...

How can something be better than nothing if nothing is perfect?

Install Ad Block for Android. It blocks 100% of ads on my tablet, even on facebook.

You were dumb not to research your device first. The ads are because you are using free apps. Why do you think they are free? to shove ads at you.

Android 3 lets you put a few restrictions, but you should have researched first and gotten a nabi, kurio, kindle, or a nook. These let restrict the hours in which you can use the device or some even restrict the hours some apps can run.

Not a bad deal, but a much better *bargain* would be the Nook HD+ for around $120 on eBay. 9" tablet with high-res screen, external micro sd slot. Add Cyanogenmod 10.1 (Jelly Bean 4.2.2) and you have a lot of bang for the buck!

As others have said, those ads are the result of apps you (or your kid) put on there. Not the fault of the Android OS.
Android 4.3 (which this nexus will upgrade to) has a Restricted Profile feature where you can set up a profile for your kid and limit what they can access. See more info here: http://www.androidcentral.com/how-use-android-43-s-restricted-profile-feature

Edit: I also encourage you to install the "Lookout AD Network Detector" app. It'll show you which apps are causing pop-up type ads.
Finally, install "Lookout Security and Antivirus" This will scan apps you install to make sure they're safe. These are both free, but just know that they will advertise their "premium" versions that you have to pay for. Most users don't need the premium features, so ignore those.

Don't cut off your nose to spite your face. Don't know what that means but it sounded appropriate. Android's versatility is worth paying the few bucks for premium versions of apps to get the ad-free versions. That versatility includes access to numerous existing apps and many new apps arriving daily, incl. parental control apps. The plethura (don't know what that means either) of app developers is the closest thing to an open architecture system avail. today. There are so many excellent educational apps for urchins of all ages that it's a shame for you to cut off your nose ... well, you know. Though these truisms come with one caveat of course, nothing should be given to a child that doesn't include total parental involvement and commitment to their well being.

An illustrative example: The local disabled community was angry that City Council voted to reduce the requirement for accessible units in new construction from 10% to 8%, because developers said they couldn't move the accessible units. The disabled community threatened to "cut off their nose to spite their face" by lobbying HUD to cut off all funding for services to the disabled in protest.

I am in the market for a new tablet but I was hoping there would be some good offers on BF. I am going to be unhappy if I pass on this and then don't find a good deal later.

Get an AdTrap. It's a little box that goes between your cable modem and your router and filters out URLs that go to ad-serving sites. It isn't perfect but it works. www.getadtrap.com (just a customer, not benefiting from mentioning it.)

Someone it seems didn't bother to even attempt to learn how to create different user profiles or implement any type of parental restriction on their devices.

You sir....if you are so worried about your kids viewing objectionable material need a KINDLE FIRE....which is also an ANDROID device.

Simply expressing another consideration for those trying to garner info. on tablet options. I've had an Acer A1-810 for 6 mos. selling at $179 new, running jelly bean 4.2.2, sporting a 7.9" sceen (same as Apple mini) and believe me when I say I was totally surprised at how much more screen real estate that extra .9" provides over the 7" tablets. Two cameras, HDMI out that I use constantly to hook to my big screen, expandable SD storage, Bluetooth, GPS, Quad core processor, WI-FI (of course). This tablet is just the perfect tablet for me, can be used one handed but large enough for watching TV, movies and playing games w/on-screen controls, etc. Sorry, got carried away. It,s just that this tablet is such a large part of my life, both living it and managing it, that every time I review other tablets I'm always thankful I found this one. No, I don't work for Acer, but I just never seem to see this hidden gem included in tablet talk. Certainly don't mean to demean or insult other viewpoints in any way.

Surface RT 1366x768 10.6" screen, pixel density 148

Nexus 10 2560x1600 10.1" screen, pixel density 300

Display-wise the Nexus 10 is light years ahead. Google play has not only way more,but much better apps, games etc than the Microsoft store. The only advantage the Surface RT has is in terms of running Office related programs. There is NO other advantage that the RT has over this device. Until the RT OS can run X86 programs it will never be a formidable opponent against Android.

If you want to make comparisons- compare the amount of tablets sold running the Microsoft RT operating system vs the amount of tablets running the Android operating system.

This is a great tablet. The only issue I have with the Nexus 10 is that aesthetically is looks cheap. Considering the internals, they could have prettied it up a bit.

Get back to me when I can dock an Android tablet and spread its workspace out across multiple monitors while seamlessly connecting to CIFS shares and using SMB shared printers on a LAN.

The Surface display also has more going for it than an almost unnoticeable ppi difference on a 10" screen. You should try one sometime.

No complaints about apps, either, they are coming fast. WMW2 was even available before it hit Android.

I already have one, so I will not be buying one today. However after a bit of research before I purchased a tablet, it's pretty easy to confirm that this is the best Android tablet on the market despite the lack of advertisement. Get the 32gig one, the 16 is too small (as I found out unfortunately). Great deal. Factory reconditioned products are generally fine and easier on the environment (no using new resources to create new ones.)
