Touch response was excellent, and we liked the display. Battery life was not among the best.

Yeah, this is a good price for this tablet. Aside from the poor battery, this thing is pretty awesome. It has all the ports and slots that the Nexus is missing. I'm very tempted, but the $20 shipping and sales tax (TX) makes it almost $220. Still a good price, but with it's poor battery life and considering I've got a 4.8" cell phone, I might as well go for a 10" tablet.
