When you post useless comments on these forums, it certainly isn't helping get anything done:these threads don't need to be arguments.

If it were true that the KFHD 7" were a better buy, then by all means anyone should say so in any forum. I'm not going to modulate my opinion because I'm in the KF HD forum. The facts are the facts. Although the build quality of the N7 is great, I wasn't talking about screen quality. I was focusing on something more fundamental-- the locked bootloader bug, which comes with every KFHD.
Without escalating this too much, I don't think our posts pointing to this bug are "useless"-- not everyone here has made a decision on what 7" device to buy yet. While the bootloader being unlocked comes very easy and quickly for you and seems to be taken for granted, poring over uboot code and finding and/or creating fixes is a lot of extra and IMO unnecessary work that could be better spent on other, more useful things.

It's a sad world when people only want you to buy one thing.
That's precisely the problem with the locked bootloader. It's a power grab, an attempt to lock you into using only one OS, and buying only through one company. And so, without a bootloader fix, you're stuck with a single OS, without access to source code, as you are tied to their services more and more. You said "I like having a choice." Well, it's not a free system out of the box; it severely limits your choices, and that matters. As far as 7" prices go-- credit the KF all you like, but do remember the KF was
an unlocked device. (Also, the 7" Nooks, ultra-cheap android tabs, and the Play Store deserve credit too, but I'll leave this for another discussion.)
Anyway, we've said our opinion. The readers can take it or ignore it.
