Nexus 7

Save a few bucks on the first-generation Nexus 7 if you're on a budget

It seems there's always a steady stream of deals for last-generation device, and the Nexus 7 (2012) is up for sale on Woot! today for $149. That's a good price considering this is the 32GB variant, and while there isn't a 3G option like the latest Groupon deal we covered, most looking for a budget device will be fine with Wifi.

Woot! can often run out of sale items like this quickly, so go snag this deal if you're looking to get a solid tablet on a budget.

Pick up an original Nexus 7 32GB on Woot! for $149


Not a bad price - definitely still a good tablet too. I just picked one up (sligthly cheaper) from Newegg's eBay store recently, absolutely loving it!

How does Kit Kat run on this thing? Found a few forum threads here at AC regarding Kit Kat on the newer 2013 N7. Was wondering if there is a good review of Kit Kat performance on the 2012 Nexus 7.

I recently installed Kitkat on my 2012 N7, here are my thoughts.

Performance has slightly improved, but at the expense of battery life.

Apps have been crashing more often.

Even with the drawbacks, improved Google services make it worth while.

I still use this tablet when my wife wants to use the Air (which is practically everyday). I still like it and it runs well on kit Kat. I have no real issues with it.

I wouldn't say awesome, or at least not anymore.

My 2012 N7 has many problems, Half broken tinny speaker, dead pixels, broken 3.5mm headphone jack, excessive lagging and crappy battery life.

Buyer beware... Woot has the worst customer service of any site I have seen. You can't call them because they have no customer support number. Only email. Plus when you buy this thing which I did 2 almost 3 weeks ago. They send you a email right away with a shipping number. Only thing is they only bought the shipping logo and have not shipped your item. Sooo email after email I finally see 3 weeks later that they finally realesed to fedex the actual package. God forbid anything happen to it because then you would be sol. I will never buy from woot again. Hoping my daughters nexus 7 comes in saturday. Funny thing is I email that says your item has shipped 3 weeks ago almost imediately with a tracking number. When It had in fact not shipped for 3 weeks later.. And I did not learn of this until I called fedex. Apparently this is the norm for Woot. Don't believe me google it.
