The description says the tablets are repackaged and there's minor cosmetic damage to the top, front, or sides - so the glass should be fine, based on what it says. Standard 30-day return policy applies. No mention of balance of manufacturer's warranty.
Note that when I first looked up the item it showed about $119, then it dropped to about $118 as I was typing this, so it may keep fluctuating.
This is as cheap as or cheaper than lots of comparable gray-market Chinese tablets, but for a name brand. Looks like a good deal if you want a genuine Nexus from a reputable source, but don't care how pretty the case is.
Yeah, as with any used/repackaged goods, and with deals in general, it's important to read the description.
The non-Amazon fulfilled ones that are cheaper mention cracked screens, but I've been refreshing the page periodically over the past couple days, and so far the Warehouse Deals Nexus 7 has always said it only has cosmetic damage to the body. And Amazon tends to be reputable enough that I'd expect them to mention if the screen is cracked.
Well, that's partially because there are so many more manufacturers and devices on the market. It can be good for the consumer, because you can get a powerful and useful device for a lot less money, compared to an iDevice.
The 2013 Nexus 7 may be more powerful than the 2012, but the 2012 can still do all the same stuff as the 2013.
If you think about it, it's still pretty amazing we can get a Star Trek computing experience for so little money. $120 for a device that can give you all of humanity's present-day knowledge is a pretty amazing feat. And an iPad, while also an impressive device, doesn't really do more than a Nexus, it just does things differently.

ipchemist said: Watch for cracked screen description. This is Warehouse Deals, Amazon's returned products/purchased used arm, which generally does not sell unusable merchandise. To be distinguished from 3rd party sellers that may be using Fulfillment by Amazon. I'd be quite surprised if something showed up with a cracked screen from Warehouse Deals.
They will take it back in any event if it fails within 30 days. I've bought hundreds of $ worth of stuff from Warehouse Deals. Rarely have I been disappointed.

Received my Nexus 7 from this deal yesterday and it's in perfect condition. I have bought a few things from Amazon Warehouse and have always been 100% happy. Even when they list it as used and not refurbished, or even with possible blemishes, I always get something that look opened but brand new. Well worth it.
I've been following the pricing, and they still have plenty of Warehouse Deals tablets, though the price has been about $130-$136 - $12+ more than the initial deal. Occasionally, a "Like New" tablet pops up.
Still a good deal, if you need one right now and can't wait until Black Friday/Xmas.

What's very sad is the same foolish people that over-value Apple products to begin with continue to inflate the price even for older models. actionjbone said: I've been following the pricing, and they still have plenty of Warehouse Deals tablets, though the price has been about $130-$136 - $12+ more than the initial deal.
