portable HDD's should work.....just drawing power from the OTG cable attached to the tab.

No reason not to. 99.99% of the time it's smooth sailing and goes down easily. No issues. Using that Idiots Guide video on YouTube made it a 5 minute affair for me--nothing to it. Easily undone and re-locked if necessary, too--it's literally just a series of mouse clicks now. HDDs without a power source are not working out well for this situation. But, carrying around an HDD isn't exactly super mobile either biggrin.gif Some decent flash drives are all you really need. If you already have 1080p Blu-Ray rips you can just Handbrake them down to 720p and stuff several onto one flash drive. Android Handbrake. I use 1280x720, H.264, fps same as source, Quality = ~RF 24-26, I use AAC (faac) Dolby Pro Logic II 48 & 160 bitrate and save it as "Nexus 7" preset. You can tinker with it to get the files the size/quality you want.

Around the house you can use Skifta (super easy) or Qloud Media super easy to use also and very very customizable--check it out.--for LAN playback from your pc. And when you'll be on the go, just toss a couple of flash drives in your pocket and you're all set.

I'm new to Android tinkering but I am loooving this Nexus 7. I'm already decided that if a nexus 10 does come out soon, I'm pre-ordering one of those too.

These speakers are not overly loud. Light headphones/earbuds help. Have a look at some of the apps thehidecheck tried out and give them a go: Volume Boosting. To boost the volume of streamed/local/flash drive movies you watch you can use this version of Dice Player (never update it) with this ffmpeg file load as a plug-in--in the settings, Dice Player has a Volume Boost option.
Try some of the apps thehidecheck posted to see if you can get an overall volume boost before boosting in Dice too. Don't blow your speaker.

No no, I think you've misunderstood me. The volume is plenty. But even when I have it at 60%, the audio that is coming through is distorted and scratchy. No matter what the volume, it's distorted and is clipping. No mistaking it. I might exchange it.

It came sealed, and then when I lifted the top off the box, I inspected it first with the plastic still on it because of all the issues people were having with the frame and the glass popping up. I noticed 3 fingerprints. Since I was inspecting it, I figured they were mine on the plastic. Sure enough, I peel the plastic back and the fingerprints are on the actual screen.

tell the store and exchange it

A Buddy of mine had a similar speaker issue that went away after a few days of use. It could be something small siting on the cone. You could try using some compressed air on the speaker grill on the back.

Whoah! You got some serious mileage out of that charge.

I was peeking the other day and noticed a free EQ app was gouging my batt time--uninstalled it.

Turning off wallet and wi-fi (when not using them) makes a HUGE difference it batt time.

Well bad news guys.
I've been trying to get a proxy app to work and it screwed up my wireless. Had to restore my N7 back to factory state. Wsan't bad but it was a pain. Took like 2 minutes to load 1 webpage so I knew something was wrong. It's back to normal now though so I gotta be careful.
