Refurbished Nexus 7 (2013) now available at a steal

Refurbished Nexus 7 (2013) now available at a steal
A set of refurbished 2nd generation Nexus 7 tablets are now available at the tempting price of $129.99 from online retailer Woot! The factory reconditioned devices come with a limit of 3 per customer, which means you can even buy some presents for the family.

Google released the Nexus 7 last year in collaboration with Asus. The tablet packs a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, a 7-inch display with a 1200x1920 resolution covered with Gorilla Glass, and a 5MP camera on the back. It also comes equipped with a front-facing camera capable of 720p video.

If you are in the market for a budget tablet, this offer is a great opportunity. The Nexus series was designed to offer a pure Android experience. To that end, Google ships the latest Android releases immediately for devices in the series. Typically, manufacturers not affiliated with Nexus take time in adapting the latest Android software for their devices, and often those older than the last iteration don't get an update. The Nexus brand is Google's own effort to battle these trends by partnering with manufacturers to offer devices that will get the latest updates on shipping day. With Android L around the corner, this deal offers a capable tablet that will get the update immediately at a price that won't drill a hole in your pocket.The saving represents a 43% discount on the $229 price on the Google Play store. Get them while they are hot!

You can purchase a refurbished Nexus 7 (2013) from Woot! here.

Except for that screen though. Nice res, but kinda disappointing otherwise.

Still have my 2012 Nexus 7. It's been a great little tablet. But this is tempting. Of course this version is already over a year old. May as well wait for the new version. Probably won't be long.

What is meaning of refurbished ? I am not quite sure about that. At woot.com the condition of the tablet is stated as Factory Reconditioned. What does that mean ? Anyone care to clarify please ?

If I'm not mistaken, refurb devices are those that have either been used and were wiped clean OR devices that were defective and were fixed for consumer use.

I picked up a 32gb refurb Nexus 7 (current version) tablet from Woot last month for $169.00. On the outside it looks like a new device and has worked perfectly since I got it. I believe it only has a 90 warranty.

I got a 1-month old Nexus 7 2nd gen after having a 1st gen for a year. I didn't want to deal with the old batteries in the refurbs. Sure enough, it suffers from the spontaneous reboots everyone complains about. About once a week it suddenly reboots.

On the plus side it is much much faster than the first gen and the screen is a huge improvement over the 1st gen's dim, muddy screen. Its a great cheap tablet but no competition for an iPad. The iPad Air is 2x to 10x as fast in the apps and games I run and doesn't suffer from the stutter during scrolling.

I've never had that problem on the pair in my house.

So, no not everyone.

Its rubbish next to a iPad Air, Did you pay as much for it?
Good grief.

This tablet is old news, still nice if you want to ship it to a third world country friend or family member
