5. Re: Morning Mobilization May 24, 2013, 10:29 Alamar
I bought a Nexus 7 when they first launched, so I paid about $250 for the 16GB model...

(Far too) shortly thereafter, it fell from about waist height and cracked the screen almost from corner to corner. Half the screen still worked, so I could flip it upside down back and forth to get at all the content, but obviously, that's a pain...

Repair costs I looked in to were about $170, and the device had come down to $200 shortly after that anyways, so repairing was (nearly) pointless.

The reason for the high cost, btw, is because you can't just replace the screen, which is just glass; you need to replace the electronic component that is glued to it.
