It's rare to see a large-screened tablet that's this cheap – especially when you consider it's a Best Buy, too.

But this is a really solid all-rounder. The 10.1-inch 1,920x1,200 resolution HD screen is bright and bold – perfect for watching films. And if you do watch TV and movies on your tablet, you'll get a monumental 13+ hours of continuous playback from the battery.

This range has gained a loyal following thanks to its incredibly low price-point and reliable brand image. A very good all-round tablet, and its price is all the more impressive when you consider its large display (which looks superb).
