I am for sure.  Love the new size, the new feel and of course the screen.  Speakers are a pretty solid upgrade as well.  Only thing that I wish they did a little different was cut down on the forehead and chin of the device but I guess its a good thing when holding it in landscape.

Love it. With no other real tablet experience to compare it to (other then my Fiance's iPad Mini) I guess my opinion is a little bias. It's super fast, does what I want and is well worth the cheap price tag. I'm very happy with my purchase.

I love this thing! I have nothing bad to say about it ... actually just one thing, I wish the speakers were as loud as on my Grouper... however, it is nice that their sound is now more crisp and clear

Actually the one time I hate my purchase is when I go to take a screenshot. Otherwise, it gets a big thumbs up.

I can't remember... did you have the original Nexus 7? I could barely hear that thing unless I was in a dead silent room.

Yeah, and I still have it actually... it's hard to get rid of my Grouper now that it works perfectly with 4.3 ..

 

I can't vouch for all Groupers out there, but mine (stock and locked) was pretty loud... the sound was a bit distorted but it was loud enough for me to listen to music while in the shower... I tried that with Flo and that's when I noticed it was much lower in terms of volume...

 

I then decided to compare them more thoroughly (I am in no shape or form an audio expert I must add) and my conclusion is that the sound quality is better on Flo than on Grouper; it seems to diffuse better and it sounds more clear and crisp..... however, it is much louder on the Grouper than on Flo when listening to music on Google Play.

 

Youtube is a different story on the other hand; It is a bit louder and sounds better on Flo than on the Grouper.... weird, I know...

First time a tablet user and the first time bought a Nexus device. Have a Galaxy S4 but the Nexus with the stock Android is amazing. Its Blazing fast and the memory management is great. No hangs ups or slow downs, over 20 apps running in the background and its silky smooth.

Awesome. Yeah the N7 is a great tablet, especially for the price. I was playing with both generations of the N7 the other day in Staples and even the older version still looks nice. I'm thinking about maybe selling my N10 and picking up the N7..I love my N10 but the N7 is just so sleek and easier to carry.
