Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 on Woot, Selling for Just $180

We know, we have told you over and over again that if you are looking for an Android tablet right now, the Nexus 7 is the way to go. But if the bottom-line price is an important issue, then today’s Woot! deal will be hard to ignore. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is on sale today only for $179.99 for a refurbished model. That gets you a 7″ tablet with a 1GHz dual-core processor and Samsung’s TouchWiz on top of Ice Cream Sandwich packed inside. There is 8GB of on-board storage that can be expanded with a microSD card.

Not the best tablet in the market today, but again, this is a deal. And if the refurbished tag is giving you second thoughts, let me say from personal experience that I bought my WiFi XOOM refurbished from Woot! and it is still going strong to this day.

Does this deal interest you or would you save for something else?


Cheers Cory!

    Can you use skype on the samsung galaxy wifi only? Is there a microphone?

    I ordered this. You don’t get 8 gig of memory. You only get 4. Plus mine has locked up about 9 times in the 12 hours that I’ve owned it. Nice toy but felt I bought an inferior product for too much money.

    Dang thank you for sharing great info.im going now

  • Stoker

    Getting this instead of an N7 right now, is a poor use of $20.

  • Rob

    This tablet doesn’t have ICS yet. Still on Honeycomb. FYI

  • uh, you still get a $25 credit to the Play Store when you buy the Nexus 7, so even if your trying to skimp on money the Nexus is a better deal.

  • vitriolix

    $20 less than the Nexus 7 which is 8x the machine

    all i have to say is i have the nexus 7 and i love it. i am a hardcore samsung fan but the support for nexus devices both from google and custom rom devs is so much better. also can you say quad core tegra 3? if you game its hands now the most B.A. processor for gaming on a android. tegra has their own app tegra zone to show you which games are more B.A. on a tegra core device. also i must add get the 16gb nexus 7 not the 8gb its so worth the $50 i swear.

      I would have to agree I have Samsung everything but my nexus 7 is freaking amazing

    • Rob

      how is this price real?

  • Michael Nichols

    that’s a coincidence because daily steals have the motorola xoom for 199.99 (not a advertisement) lol

  • Yup, what’s been resounded here.. $20 more for a new, better supported Nexus 7.

    Expandable memory is important on any tablet, but ~8Gb (with, what, 6.5Gb or so free out of the box) is honestly too little for anyone who is not totally wedded to the cloud or who has more than a handful of 3D games to install. Remember, HC/ICS/JB don’t support installing apps to external storage and even a class 10 card is going to be much slower than internal NAND.

    If this was a 16Gb Tab, that’d be another story. But comparing apples to apples, both 8Gb tablets are going to be rather limited. For $150, I’d maybe consider this Tab 2. But for $180, it’s worth digging deeper for the extra bucks to get even the 8Gb Nexus. FWIW, I had the original Galaxy Tab 7″ and it was awesome in its time as far as formfactor, battery life, and available ROMs.

      You can purchase a USB On The Go (OTG) cable that will let you use a USB thumb drive and many other USB devices with the Nexus 7. I use my wireless USB Logitech mouse with my nexus 7. It uses a USB dongle for the wireless….just plug n play.

      OTG cable also works with my S3.

    Hmm… expandable memory, dual cameras. And $20 less than Nexus 7. Difficult choice….

    • digitalicecream

      find a jb rom, which would you choose then?

      • nightscout13

        I’m leaning towards the Tab. It looks better too, IMHO.

        • vitriolix

          CPU, GPU are much, much better in the Nexus. The support will be much much better in the Nexus. Personaly I have less than 0 use for the rear camera in my tablet. I’ve used it in my Galaxy Tab 10.1 maybe 4 times and it was a bad experience holding that giant thing up

          • nightscout13

            Well, a 7″ is easier to hold up i think

          • vitriolix

            For sure… just personally I’d never really use it. I always have my phone on me and that’s just a nicer form factor for taking pictures IMHO

        • digitalicecream

          I’m thinking the same thing.

          • Jon

            I hear ya but trust me don’t do it. Get the Nexus 7. It is really fast in ways you will appreciate and you don’t have to root it to get JB, or the JB update that’s coming in November with the release of the next Nexus phone.

            Coming from an Acer Iconia A500 to my Nexus 7…I do not regret choosing the Nexus 7.

  • Trevor

    Hunt for change in the couch and under vending machines and cough up the extra $20 for the Nexus 7.

  • LewisSD

    What a deal! IMO i would rather shell out the extra $20 and get a nexus 7 though

    • Mack

      Agreed. Quad-core and AOSP Jelly Bean are well worth another $20, not to mention everything else the Nexus 7 has going for it. Plus it happens to be a Nexus.
