ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Update-Dangerous Must Read 09/11/2014

This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown

Pros: For the price and memory, 3 out of 4 units run great. Tablets fast, and can connect extremely well in low wifi hotspots where cell phones normally drop signal. My total opinion, Asus should stick with making Motherboards, not tablets.

Cons: Out of the 4 units I bought, one died within 3 days and Asus has been giving the run around in getting it repaired or replaced. As I mentioned earlier, the cables it comes with are horribly weak and all 4 cables have broken within in under 30 days from date of purchase. The metal is soft in both micro usb cable and 115vac adapter. Within under 10 days the micro usb connectors would not stay firmly connected to tablet and in 20 days the micro usb connectors had detached from the cables and would stick in the tablets female connector. If you buy this product, I highly recommend buying heavy duty micro usb cables or if you own any android products use the cables in place with what they came with. within 45 days, almost had a fire when one of the chargers started smoking and had unplugged it to get a 115vac shock as I had a grounding strap on when handling the surge protector power strip and hadn't noticed that when I had unplugged the burning adapter, it left behind one of the metal prongs in the outlet which my arm brushed against while unplugging another charger.
The tablet itself seems pretty heavy duty, and the chargers and cables made extremely cheap. There is no excuse for the quality of the above and definitely would not pass UL approval rating.
The unit that died within 3 days, seems to be s thermal fuse which prevents the tablet from charging.
Only buy this product if your willing to shell out for a separate stronger adapter and usb cable. Due to the fact the ASUS company that makes this product happens to be nearby in California, am filing in small claims in redwood city to cover cost for one tablet and all 4 adapters and usb cables.
Do not leave either tablet or charging unit unattended when charging as they both run extremely hot and as I mentioned above, almost had a fire and now must pay landlord for damaged rug.

Other Thoughts: I have been a loyal customer of Asus for many years, and every family member has a full tower I7 PC P6x58D motherboard and customer service when one was bad and needing replacing was much much better than tablet support. Which is why Ill stick with their Mbs, but never a tablet again.

2 out of 5 eggs great name faulty parts 05/12/2014

This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown

Pros: Asus has and still is a great name for motherboards, laptops, but for tablets they need a lot of improvement. The price for the tablets with 32gb ram is great, see con's below

Cons: Bought 4 units, the mini usb port went bad in 2 days meaning short or loose connection in two of the 4 units. Both exchanged but due to way adapters packed, one would not make connection due to short in adapter as they are packed tightly and bent right where they are weak. Mini USB and adapters cheap and will not last.

Other Thoughts: if Asus replaces the adapters and uses better and stronger mini USB port the unit would be great.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great for scanning in multiple doccuments

Cons: Ports clog easily and the extended waranty new egg offers are a joke. The printers black would never work and newegg gave the run around to getting it fixed with extenede waranty which no one could find. I did a small claims that was taken off calander though when this showed up reminded me to follow upon it.

Other Thoughts: Dont buy extended warantys here unless you use credit card. I bought several,one on printer, cpu, and motherboard. Newegg claims they could only find the printer yet my bank shows the charges and luckily in california where small claims no one can use attorneys, here the statute of limitations goes by the contract, not sales date.
