I received the Asus Google Nexus 7 tablet as a gift back in August, at the time I knew little of the tablet but quickly learned what a wonderful choice it was.
It runs on the Android operating system which is convenient for me as my phone does also. This allows you to log in to the Play Store using your ID and see what you have downloaded on your other devices, you can then download them to the tablet. It is also useful when purchasing an app, movie etc from the Play Store as you can then download it onto your other devices without paying again.
At the time I had the device it came with £20 voucher to be used in the Play Store, I'm not sure if this is still available but it wasn't based on where you purchased the product, you just had to login to the store and try to buy something, the gift certificate automatically appears next to your list of cards.
The screen is 7 inches and is quite stunning, the clarity on HD films is amazing, you can get up to 32 GB on the device and for most of us that is more than enough.
A tip when plugging in headphones, I had some trouble getting the sound to come through the heapdhones, it felt like they would clip in but the sound was skipping or not playing through at all. I found out you have to be forceful and push them in a little further than you would on most appliances.
I have used the device for games, movies, streaming television, books and using the Internet and it has excelled at all. It is a perfect size for reading books and you can integrate Google Books as well as Kindle with it so you have plenty of options.
Summary: A fantastic budget tablet that far exceeds the more expensive competitors, it is a must have.
