I bought a Nexus 7 the same week the iPad Mini was announced at $329. I figured I was going to vote with my wallet this time. I dismissed the standard almost cliched arguments about android (buggy, laggy) and admitted shortcomings (limited tablet apps). I loved the screen, size and durability. For the first few months I loved it. The screen was great, most of the apps I wanted were there - it seemed to run fine. I did have a problem with the screen completely washing out...ASUS had given me an RMA, but the problem went away and never came back. But over time it's seemed like it's become slower and slower. Too many apps get the dreaed 'Wait/Report/Ignore' warning. Now I can't it's not staying connected to my router if I'm on the other side of the house. (All my other devices from laptops to cell phones are getting a full signal.) All the cliches seem to have an element of truth. Pretty disappointing.
