I can not get over how happy and excited I am about this product (original Nexus 7). I have not put it down ever since I got it. It is just amazing! It does everything I could ask of it. I use it much more than I use my iPhone or laptop. Who needs an expensive iPad when this works just as great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Extremely satisfied with performance.

I have researched many Tablets prior to this purchase. The Nexus 7 is everything it claimed to be and more. I am very happy with the quality and performance. The graphics are perfect and Netflix is awesome on it.
Nexus 7 DOA Out of the Box
from Westminster, CA
I am not blaming the seller for the product being DOA. Everything was delivered fine and everything looked new. The Nexus 7 simply didn't turn on and I had to send it to Asus for support. Think Asus needed a better quality assurance program.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I would recommend this to family

I bought this at a sale to play with the Droid system, at that price I thought it was a low risk trial for me, I didn't realize the new Nexus 7 Generation had just come out (This probably explains why I got this on sale), this was my first Droid tablet having used iOS since it came out, after seeing and playing with Droid Apps I arrived to the conclusion that this was not behind iOS at all, a friend at work showed me his Nexus 7 Gen 2 and I was sold on it, I gave this Gen 1 to a relative and bought me the Gen 2, the new version has higher resolution perhaps a faster processor and all that jazz, everything else is pretty much the same and I went for it only because my eyes are getting bad, I have an iPad Mini and the screen resolution is much better for my eyes on the Gen 1 or Gen 2 but the shape on the Nexus 7 takes some getting used to, shape is not a deal breaker at all and once you're pass the initial adaptation period it is actually better suited for reading, for watching movies or videos you just need to turn it sideways. Nothing wrong with the iPad either but if you read a lot after holding an iPad in the air for 30 minutes you know what I mean, this product is lighter and that counts for avid readers ! Great product so far but I haven't had long enough to tell quality is there but as reference I can say that I have an Asus Notebook and never had problems with it(Asus is actually the company who makes the Nexus 7 for Google)I am not a Mac Freak or Android Apostol either one is a good OS for the average user, both are excellent OS both have enough critical mass in their app stores and are very user friendly, I would be happy with either one if someone gives me one for Christmas.
