Refurbished Nexus 7 (2013) now available at a steal

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!

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 ?

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.
