Asus makes great routers. The one I had before this one was the Asus RT-N16. They're great routers and the firmware has gotten better than what it used to be.

Well actually no...

The Toshiba AT270 is the best 7" (ok 7.67") range Android tablet available.

It was on sale on Newegg recently for $329 and will be again for xmas.

I have the 16GB version and compared it to a 32GB Nexus 7 that I picked up. The differences are significant (far exceeding the $70 price delta).

Far superior build quality. The AT270 has an aluminum back and is both thinner and lighter than the Nexus 7.

Much superior screen - The AT270 comes with a Super AMOLED+ screen that is the best screen out this gen tablets (I compared it the the Asus TF700T I owned briefly and the AT270 had far better color and contrast). The Nexus 10 may very well be better but then again that's a 10" tablet and as such doesn't directly compare.

Has both HDMI support (via dock) and a Micro SD slot. Given that 32GB Micro SD cards are $15 currently, the sky is the limit for storage on the device.

The AT270 has a rear 5MP camera with flash.

In Engadget's video loop tests, the AT270 lasted 45 minutes longer than the Nexus 7.

The AT270 also has DLNA support (wireless transfer to supported TV's).

There are only a few areas where the Nexus 7 is better.

1. Newer version of Android OS (AT270 is at 4.0)
2. Bluetooth 4.0 vs. 3.0
3. Near Field Communication

And that's it...

My only real beef with the AT270 is that there is a very limited selection of cases available (I got a decent one off Amazon for $20).

Well the AT270 doesn't seem to be available locally, and I don't really like ordering stuff from overseas. (+ it's more pricey)

Good point. Mind you in Canada, the cheapest Nexus 7 is $240 (the 16GB). I don't think we ever got the 8 GB version up here (and who would want it with only 6GB of space after installed apps and OS?).

That Toshiba tablet is pretty sexy. There is just something about the nexus I love though. It may be the same way with the Toshiba. I have noticed that since I'm used to using my nexus using my fiance's IPad 2 is not as cumbersome as I once thought. Still think they are too big but the iPad mini may be nice once they get the retina display.

Don't get me wrong, the Nexus is a decent tablet. Just holding the two devices and running video side by side allows a comparison.

If it makes any difference, the Toshiba is a $500 tablet that has recently been heavily discounted due to lack of sales. The Super AMOLED+ screen drives the cost. If the Nexus had HDMI out (via dongle or at least MHL support or DLNA support) and a micro-SD slot, even with a lesser screen it would be a much better bang for the buck.

Funny how HDMI out or one of the other options makes a difference on this type of tablet. For anyone that is a fan of Netflix (several of my family members), being able to connect a tablet (Wirelessly through DLNA to a supported TV or via a dongle) is a big plus with a budget tablet.

My mother uses the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (which is now $199) to connect to her 120hz 55" LG tv via DLNA to run Netflix on it and frankly it looks great. The Tab has a micro SD slot as well. It may be slower and have a slightly lower res screen but a lot more functionality.

Definitely I just couldnt ever see myself using a tablet for Netflix. I guess its because ive always had an Xbox or a Ps3 that was capable of running it but I also have a roku player. Im guilty of using my tablet while watching tv. So hdmi out is not a big deal to me.

I do wish there was a microsd slot though. I think that is one of the worst design mistakes that everyone is going to. Especially if you flash alot of roms and have just gotten to 4.2. The new "additional user" support is a pain the butt. My sd card has been emulated 5 times. I cant get to any back ups or anything without going and moving all the files to the first emulation and deleting the old ones. Very cumbersome.

You're forgetting price. You're comparing a $200 tablet against a $329 tablet....
