I bought a refurbed xoom, toast out of the box. I bought a refurbed Acer netbook, screen was toast in less than a year. the xoom I was able to send back, the netbook I had to eat. refurbs are dubious at best. I stay away from them now. Also, I bought a sony tablet s with 32 gb and it came with a charging cradle for the same price around a year ago. The Sony tablet was NEW and it's still going strong.
When do we get to buy souls?

I use the 7" version every day. It works VERY well. I watch movies, read eBooks, listen to audiobooks as well as the regular uses for online, etc. It has MUCH better sound playback than my iPad 2.
The only negative I can add is that the audio recording quality (using some adapters/mics that are made for iPad) are not as good. I've tried several programs, so it appears to be the hardware that is not up to par. So for broadcast news and podcasting, the iPad, iPod Touch still work better.
But it sure is nice to copy a movie, etc., to a microSD card and just PLAY IT without iTunes butting in!
