Default Buying nexus 7 from amazon

I'm currently in saudi arabia and I'm thinking of buying the new nexus 7 from amazon as it is available for international shipping..
It is avaiable through stores here but for an unreasonable price ($480 for the LTE version!)

I've been reading through the forums and found that many of the units had defects/issues and mainly those screen issues (dead pixels, ghost touches, dust under screen) so I'm worried about buying it since it will also be my first time to order something online.

Should I order it ? What should I do if it turned out to be defective ?

Amazon has a great return policy. If you notice something wrong with it in the first 30 days Amazon will swap it for a different one. I would assume most issues that you have would arise in the first month of owning the tablet.

This exactly. I'm an avid Amazon buyer because of this. I say go for it!
