I can have it for half the price of new Nexus 7. I would be using it mainly for browsing internet/facebook, watching online streams (flash), using it as a media centre (watching movies from pc via LAN). I know this device is just fine for these things. I had read a lot of stories about tablets breaking down: screens lifting, burnt speakers and things like that. Is it a common issue?
One more thing. Is the screen good for reading ebooks?
Thanks for your advices
using the n7 for reading is great.. beats my dedicated Sony ereader except for battery life. the higher resolution might be better for Movies but for all the other uses mentioned the N7 and N7(2013) are pretty much on par.
I haven't had any of the issues you mentioned, and it seems that the 'bad ones' have worked their way out of the system.
at the price you mentioned.. it will be a great purchase.... I still use my Motorola Xoom for some things... and don't regret buying either.
