For $250, you won't get a better tablet.

I bought one today too, I think for the price it will be good. I had an N7 2013 and it was nice but just a bit small so I am hoping this will be just right. If not I will sell it on ebay and get something else. It is a great price.

i picked one up as well, although it was technically 279 and then listed a 30 off code on the page making it 249 at final checkout

just hope its one of the 312 or later sn's to avoid alot of the screen issues i've been hearing about

also picked up a black smart cover for it for 13 bucks from newegg (the three segment flap type)
the pad should be here by the weekend so i can try it out on some long flights were taking, unfortunately the case will be here...sometime after that

Mine came in on Monday with the same sticker, but in a vertical orientation. The sticker makes me think it's new but when I opened it I found a few random strands of 2in long hair and the case close to the charge port seems slightly bent. Other than that mine seems new though with the random hair and slightly bent plastic case I'm not sure. Can anyone confirm if the tablet is supposed to be in a protective bag or not? Mine wasn't it was just sitting on the top tray of the box with the protective screen.

I attached a pic of the bent case.

sounds like a return, keep an eye on the screen quality...
i hope that silver sticker isn't a 'return-check-resell' thing from newegg, i've always been happy with stuff from them but this would be super shifty...
whats your serial series?

My S/N starts with 310, so I'm assuming that is one of the newer runs? Other than the fishiness of it I haven't seen anything about the tablet other then that deformed part that has bothered me about it. I ran a dead pixel app to see if there was anything and no dead pix and no backlight bleed to really notice. I get about 4-5 hrs of screen on time from social media browsing and chromecasting with BT and GPS turned off, wifi on, auto dim on. I don't know if it's an issue but the knock on is sometimes non-responsive requiring 2-3 tries before it wakes up.
