Nvidia Shield Tablet ( 16GB, Wi-Fi)
Even if you don't take advantage of its gaming prowess, the Nvidia Shield Tablet is one of the most versatile -- and affordable -- high-performance 8-inch Android slates you can buy.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 ( 8-inch, black)
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a smooth-performing midrange slate, but it's overpriced compared to similar tablets.
Acer Iconia A1-830
The Acer Iconia A1-830 is a sleek and simple tablet for basic use, but you need only spend $50 more to upgrade to a slate with faster performance and better features.
Toshiba Excite Pro
The Toshiba Excite Pro is far too expensive to justify its buggy user experience.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ( AT&T)
The AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a quality tablet, but the Nexus 7 offers contract-free 4G LTE support with better performance at a much better price.
Acer Iconia A1-810
The Acer Iconia A1-810 goes low on price, but the Google Nexus 7 costs about the same and is still the tablet to get with its sharper screen and more comfortable build.
The HTC Jetstream brings Sense to Honeycomb successfully, but it prices itself out of most consumers' budgets, while offering little to compensate.

The 8GB Archos 80 G9 delivers a complete Android experience at a low price, but its rough design, low-quality camera, and awkward button placement make it feel rushed to market.
Motorola Xoom ( titanium)
Despite some useful features, the Xoom's high price and bulky design make it a less than desirable tablet offering.
