ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Faulty Out of Box 12/29/2013

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

Pros: Looks great,Quick, Light weight, easy to use. Great HD Quality screen.

Cons: Unfortunately there was a black line down the screen when the tablet was first powered on. Resets and trouble shooting did not help. So I received a Bad Egg right out of the box. I have searched and found that screen issues seem to be some what of a problem with this tablet. Perhaps its not manufacturing but maybe the way they are handled during transportation from ASUS.

I have heard that many retailers receive these units on pallets packed with many other heavy items. Sometimes these other items are heavy and these fragile tablets end up on the bottom of the pallet under all of the weight.

The pallets are also improperly loaded in trucks during transportation and get knocked around or sometimes collapse during the long drive.

Other Thoughts: Great tablet at a great price. This tablet is way better than my ipad and I intend to stick with the Android platform from here on. It would have been great if my unit was not defective or damaged out of the box. I intend on returning this and purchasing another. I do plan on purchasing an extended warranty this time.

Pros: Worked as soon as I plugged it in. Speeds are as advertised with this card. No need for cd as Win 7 automatically installs.

Cons: A bit tricky to install in my setup.

Metal bracket for the card was bent on the edge causing this not to align properly. Had to bend the bracket slightly at the edge. Card did not fit flush against the io panel and was left with a tiny gap. Not a deal breaker but took me an extra couple of minutes on the install.

Other Thoughts: Great wireless adapter for the price. No issues when gaming yet. Not the fastest but you definitely get a good bang for your buck.
