First off the tablet came well packaged and undamaged. Two days from Brooklyn to Vermont.
This is a great tablet for the money. It has a quad core processor, good screen, 32GB of storage and is upgradable to Android 5.0.2, the latest version. Many newer and more expensive tablets are not running the latest version of Android and most likely never will. Nexus devices are among the first, if not the first, to get the latest updates.
I was a little disappointed that there were a couple of scratches on the screen, one a little deep. I knew going in that this was a possibility, being a refurb, but it is still a bummer. Not complaining, it is the luck of the draw with refurb. Just posting all my experiences to help others make their decision.
Overall, buy this with confidence.
