Default Any good tablet recommendations under 200?

Non-Apple please!

Android would be great. Mostly for multi-tab browsing and the odd game.

Screen 8-10" would be ideal.

Anyone any from the trenches recommendations?

Thanks

Thanks and looks a good bet but Amazon don't sell new ones any more and others are charging 300+ for it unfortunately.

You might have to shop around and keep your eyes peeled - they do turn up at that price.

As a tablet, it's pretty hard to fault so it's worth being patient.

Interesting how they're cheaper in store. I will try and take a look over the weekend.

Have you got one and if so how do you find it?

After reading loads of reviews the NVidia Shield K1 seems to be head and shoulders above the rest. I think I'll give myself a deadline of a couple of months to get one as they're tough to get hold off, and if not will have to look round fir others.

It does seem the perfect option though. Not too big, but still very powerful.

Another superb tablet is the Google Nexus 9 - they are well worth a look

They are quite an 'old' tablet now but NVidia keep updating them (Android 7 was pushed out a few weeks back) and they are very popular pieces of kit.

Nvidia supposedly discontinued them but never actually announced it as far as I know and they are still advertising it on their web site - good luck searching.

The Nexus 9 is almost identical in spec and uses the same hardware - they do seem to be more readily available
