First off, I loved this tablet while I had it. I bought it at a local Walmart in Phoenix, AZ on Aug. 17. The tablet is awesome, and I had no problems at all until I bought an LG wireless charger (WCP-300) on Aug. 28. No matter what I did, my unit would not do wireless charging. I jumped on the internet and from what I've found, this seems to be more of an issue with the 32GB version, and it is a hardware problem.
I took mine back on Aug. 29, and I took my LG wireless charger with me. The very nice woman in the electronics department got a new nexus tablet out for me and I tried my wireless charging pad on it. Like the unit I was returning, the new one didn't work. So I did a complete return and didn't exchange it, because I wanted a unit that had wireless charging that worked. I then went to the local BB and the clerk let me try out my wireless charger on a new unit there. It worked right away, so I bought it. I've since charged it wirelessly twice and had no problems. If you bought a 32GB version of the new 2013 Nexus 7 tablet, check to see if the wireless charging works. If not, return it before your 15 day return limit is up. I caught mine just a few days before the 15 day limit and I am sure glad I did.
Even though I had this problem, I still love this tablet. As far as recommending it, I would but with the caveat that you should make sure you get a unit that has functioning wireless charging. And once you try wireless charging, you won't want to go back to plugging it in!
