    I keep reading about a bunch of defects and issues as well as the pre order debacle, but all I have to say is positive.

    Screen is flawless and gorgeous. Used the screen test ap and found no pixel issues. Watching HD movies is great as is reading on it.

    I unboxed it:

    Charged it up and turned it on:

    I was advised of the update within 5 mins of power on and had JB a short time thereafter. The next day I received another small update.



    The tablet it so smooth and quick. Chrome is amazing and the tablet has not so much as sputtered even once.

    This is by far the best $246 (Sams) I have spent. Assuming you are able to avoid any defect issues, you will not be disappointed. It was worth the wait.

    I believe you are referring to the update 'for' Jellybean not 'to' jellybean, as all Nexus 7 tablets ship with JB. But thanks for the + feedback. Dont usually get any in these forums

    Yes sorry, just meant that it immediately updated when I turned it on asking for a reboot. Has had two such updates thus far.

    I also bought from sams club and it had no defects, they must have gotten the better batches then the other retailers. As for the updates, I just got another one from google today and I wonder what it was for.

    Here is a screenshot of the jelly bean easter egg Google tossed in. You can interact with the floating jelly beans. No real point to it' but cute for 30 seconds.

    Can you do me a favor and put a white screen up on the display? I found that Kindle showed me that the left side of mine was very unevenly lit, and the top left corner was very dim. Yopu could clearly see the LEDs throwing a conical pattern of light. It was OK on colored or darker screens. But not on a even, white screen like the Kindle reading page.

    Mine, which I raved about earlier, is going back today for an exchange. I hope #2 is better. I really like the tab, but not too wild about the backlighting.

    I find my screen to be very even across the entire range.

    Honestly the only thing I can negative I can say is that the on/off button is hard to reach/press and takes some getting used to.

    Nice Thank you. It seems like the on/off on all my tabs is hard to use, so nothing new there. Now I really can't wait to get to Sams and swap devices.

    Open it in the store and check it over before you bring it home.

    MOTOROLA XOOM, which is nowhere near the wonderful experience that the Nexus 7 has been thus far.

    Got mine a few hours ago (Google Play) no defects (or buyers remorse). The only apps I've had issues with are Dead Space and Tetris. Definitely worth the wait.

    I received my Nexus 7 around 12:30 at work. Really digging it so far. Jelly Bean is indeed smooth and fluid. I'll really test it out once I clock out but I've already installed a few apps and even side loaded flash and Firefox thanks to the tutorial posted right here in the forums. The form facter is perfect for a commuter like me- it's much more portable than the iPad and other 10" tablets. Since it's WiFi only, this is my first time testing out Mobile Hotspot on my HTC Amaze and it worked well too. Speeds were very usuable on T-Mo's network. Not a bad deal for $249 (plus the BS shipping fee and tax).
