Default Why does a 7-inch tablet at half the price blow this one away, but then lose out in the long run?

Sorry folks, but my Nexus 7 (at half the price) has blown my Excite 10 out of the water.

I will be initiating the return process immediately and will discontinue posting here as a result.

This one came really close to being a keeper for me.
I wish you the best.

I have an A500, and have been seriously considering selling it and buying an N7, and you are making that decision that much harder to resist

The fact that the screen doesn't have backlight bleed even close to the Toshiba.
jellybean featuring project butter makes the overall usage way smoother and stutter-free.
Overall performance is on-par or better.

-all at half the price.

EDIT

I'm actually going to give this one another go at the urging of some close advisers.

Here's a good one: I'm keeping the Toshiba.

Why? Because I broke it out of the box and gave it another go.
Sure it isn't everything the Nexus 7 is, but it IS several thing that the Nexus 7 ISN'T, so go figure the thought processes of an old geek.

EDIT

Besides, there has to be at least ONE person to stay here and represent! LOL

Default Excite vs Nexus

I wanted the Nexus, until I found out the Excite 10 has full sized SD card slot and HDMI out. That made me spend the extra money.

Still, if the Nexus 7 just had expandable/changable memory I'd have given it a go.

Cool After a few months the Toshibe totally wins, and here's why:

What an interesting journey!

In an attempt to live with both tablets I found myself unlocking and rooting the Nexus 7, then installing flash and the stock Android browser onto it.
When an update came down the line it was rejected by my nexus 7 because of all the crap I did to it that now had to be undone to accept the update.

For all the coolness that the nexus 7 brings, it doesn't give me the full user experience that I'm getting on my Excite 10 AT305 and it's extremely annoying, so into the "drawer of purgatory" goes the Nexus 7!

I've learned to forgive my Toshiba for the light bleed issue because it kicks butt in just about every other way.
It just took me a little while to realize that.

I also have the light bleed issue but I overlooked it and gave credit on how impressive this tablet is. It is a major step up from the Thrive series

Just wait til the excite gets jelly bean, but the nexus 10 is also coming, I love my excite does everything I need it to. I'm not having any lag issues on mine, the Galaxy note 10.1 has more lag in my opinion.

With the nexus devices you can attach a USB flash drive to it. As much memory as youll ever need.

I posted a flashable ota update for rooted users. It will work even with all the modifications you've made.
