Mommy's Favorite Things: Staples Review

Staples Review

There are certain things that everyone likes to get from stores like Staples. I tend to go there for my computer paper, printer ink, and sticky labels for my Scentsy Business. But things I've never really thought to go there for are things like electronics. I know they carry them, but I've usually just gone to other stores for them. 
But recently I had the opportunity to give them a try for their electronics. I received the Google Nexus 7 in a 32gb. 

Everything that came in the box. The wonderful tablet, a charger, a USB cable and manual and quick start guide.
 Easily plugs in, but the USB cable is attached, so it's super easy to unplug it from the adapter and use it to transfer info from computer to tab or other means.
 Turn it on and it will automatically guide you through the quick start guide.
 Then the setup is complete and it's ready to use.
This tablet has solved a lot of my problems!

I have been wanting an eReader for a long time now. I typically prefer a hard copy of books and CDs, but we're running out of space and this would cut down on that for sure. So I've been wanting an eReader, but those typically only have 1-2 purposes. 

A tablet is a great alternative. This is an Android Market tablet, it has a Kindle App that you can download. So I now have an eReader right on my tablet, but this is so much more. It's a mini computer. I can access my email, the internet, games and much much more on it. 

The screen is 7" and it is really the perfect size for reading books or other activities. It's super easy to use too. I previously had the Google Nexus S phone so it was exactly the same as my phone. I had a kindle app on my phone too, but it was like a 4" screen and I wasn't reading on that! 

So it's really user friendly and easy to use. It has up to 10 hours of web browsing, 10 hours of reading and up to 300 hours of stand by time all on ONE single charge! This tablet is beefed up! It has 32gb so it has a TON of storage too. It also has scratch resistant Corning glass so the screen is already protected. 

I was able to pick up a Red Case for this tablet and it works wonderfully. I didn't need anything expensive or with a ton of protection, just something to keep baby fingers off my screen and keep it a bit protected from dust and such. 

I'm loving, loving, loving this tablet and can see myself using it more and more over time. 
I love that I can bring it with me on vacations and such and be able to read many books but only take up the space of 1. It's much better and easier in that aspect. And it would be easy to read in the car too. 

Staples is definitely the place to go for EVERYTHING you might need!! I had never thought to purchase electronics there before, until now! The best part is I got this tablet just the DAY AFTER it had been ordered!!!! Express shipping at it's finest!

Price: The 32gb tablet is $249. But if a 16gb is more up your alley, that is just $199!

Overall: ***** Love Staples AND this tablet!
