Disagree. Mine works flawlessly on newest update

Some guy at the Google/Asus refurb center is going to get that tablet and boot it up and be like "What a jerk". It still had TWRP on it and I'm pretty sure SuperSU was still on the SDcard.
I think in order to fix that, they have to install new image, so it will be erased anyway.

Has anyone tried the Yet Another Multitouch Test app to confirm whether or not the issue exists on your device?

A few examples of the touchscreen behavior are on this thread on the Google product forum. Apparently Google is looking into the issue.

My 32 GB Nexus 7 has not been experiencin multitouch issues as much as total screen unresponsiveness. After first it was very sporadic and a mild annoyance with it working properly most of the time, but the last few days it has grown increasingly worse where sometimes I would touch the unlock button on the lock screen and the display will freeze and fail to unlock, or sometimes I unlock and swipe like normal but then the screen becomes unresponsive to taps & swipes within seconds, Now I can't seem to use the tablet at all today (this morning it worked ok) unless I have the tablet powered off for a while and then try to use it again and its usuable for a while before the problem acts up again. Mine is rooted and running CM 10.2 right now.

Default Watch your fingers!

It isn't a software issue. The screen is too slippery! Seriously. For those of you who have this problem, watch your thumb or finger when you long-press the screen. My fingers slip a lot. Also, I don't think the screen is oversensitive. I read about it in forum after forum, but I think it is wrong. I think it is evident in the way even the best styli fail to work for any sort of handwriting. I think the screen's sensitivity is garbage. I have an overpriced Adonit stylus. It claims to be the most precise stylus in the world but it barely registers on my FLO. Having said that, it is absolutely magical on the Galaxy S3, which has a stupidly sensitive screen. There may be something about the rom or kernel I'm running, but I have had the same results with every rom I've used.
