Google "I can't find one person who has been using the Nexus 7 for an extended period of time, and hasn't seen a massive downgrade in performance. Just what kind of downgrade are we talking here? I cannot pick up my Nexus 7 without experiencing problems like a lag of ten seconds, or more, just to rotate the display; touches refusing to acknowledged; stuttering notification panel actions; and unresponsive apps." Fully and utterly agreed. My Nexus 7 was blazing-fast and awesome for a few months, and at some point, it just started sucking. Just like that. I've tried loads of ROMs, and nothing helps.

I might be that one person that hasn't seen any performance downgrade. I wouldn't call myself a "power user" (my rooting/flashing days are long gone), but I do use it almost every day, more now than before as a matter of fact.

Don't have that many apps or media installed on mine unit (still 8GB+ free), so that might be why I'm not having problems.

Did some checking and found that it's usually one (or more) of these problems listed here gives users this lag;

From what I can tell, the TRiM problem is the biggest culprit, and the solution to run the ForeverGone App seems to fix it for most people.

I am a second person then. I use my Nexus 7 all the time and I haven't seen a downgrade in speed. I am posting this from mine while happily listening to an audio book.

No problems for me either. I run vanilla Android without root (although I've flashed both ParanoidAndroid and Plasma Active/Mer in the past), and I've got plenty of disk space left.

Mine has never skipped a beat. I recently bought a Nexus 10 more as a size issue, and my Nexus 7 is now serving faithfully for my brother. It may be important that it's been reflashed twice, just because I could. Once with the Ubuntu preview, and again back to stock.
