In our house we have a 7", 10" Galaxy Tab 2 for the kids and I have just been given a Kindle Fire. Has anybody else here rooted any of these tablets? Am I correct in thinking rooting the Galaxys should speed them up too? Thanks for any advice.

I was looking to get Debs a new laptop for her new job as she is going to be doing her Masters but as that has been put back for a good while, we decided we would get her a tablet that she could use for web browsing and social media etc. We have a Nexus 7 but the screen is too small so we decided on a 10 inch tablet. Given the limited requirements we didn't want to spend too much money so I scoured Amazon and found what looked like a decent choice - Dragon Touch - for £79 - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00LM5WU96?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s02. The only negative reviews were for bad sound so we went for it. It came on Friday and looked pretty good. However woke up yesterday to see that the screen is peeling away from the tablet so I have just had a refund from Amazon.
SO - can anyone recommend a 10 inch Tablet for around the £100 mark that will stand up to daily use and has decent build quality and performance to last a few years? It has to be 10 inch or as near as damn it.

Thanks for that mate. I have had a good look at them but to get the proper keyboard would push the price way up.

I got a steelseries stratus XL controller for my iPad air 2 for Christmas and it is great, GTA San Andreas works like a dream and Real Racing 3 is great too. It works on iPhone 5 and above and on iPad mini, Air and 4th gen ipads running ios7 and above, connects with Bluetooth and works with hundreds of games. It is similar to an Xbox pad in shape and size but with joystick layout like PS controllers. It's not cheap at £60 but it turns your iPad into a mini console, deffo worth a look.

If the battery runs down a bit (below 50 percent seems to be when the problem starts for me), it won't charge unless you restart the device with the charger plugged in. I also get problems with the clock sometimes, where the time will randomly be two hours and 17 minutes (or whatever) behind what the actual time is. Again, solved by restarting the device with the charger plugged in. It's quite annoying, but it's a dirt cheap tablet so...

I have updated it doesn't look any different but it seems to be charging ok now from 30%.

I will have to dig the usb cable out to see if that works better now.

Loving my new nexus 9 so far apart from the build quality which is terrible by htc standards.

It is fast by any standard and games look awesome. I can also attach a full sized keyboard using the micro usb-otg port and do my reports, which means less use for my Vaio.

Happy with it so far!

So the flash memory of my Nexus 7 (2013) had a wee bit of a catastrophic failure last week (my fault, admittedly). I'm looking at the Nvidia Shield tablet as replacement. Has anyone had any experience with it?

Plan B is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, but I dislike Touchwiz. Gorgeous screen, though...

Plan C is another Nexus 7, but i'd like a slightly bigger screen.

I switched from a Nexus 7 (2012) to a Shield a few months back, once the Shield had the Lollipop upgrade. Been very pleased with it. I mostly use it for video watching, reading and comics. The front-facing speakers really make such a difference, especially compared with the N7 and the horrible rear speaker that was muffled when you held the tablet.

It feels a tiny bit thicker than the N7, especially with the case/cover. The build quality is solid though. No complaints there. Being able to add an SD card is a boon too as is having stock Android. Not tried any of the gaming capabilities yet, but the game that comes with it (Trine 2) looks lovely.

I'd give it a solid 8 out of 10.

Do you know if the glass screen has any kind of fortification? (Gorilla Glass, etc) I've been looking but couldn't find anything...

I don't think it does. I got the smart cover to go with it and haven't really worried about scratches or cracks.

The cover is very nice indeed, both as a screen cover and a stand. Works well.

The only irritating thing are the buttons which hardly stick out at all, so you sometimes have to feel along the edge. Thankfully, you don't have to use the buttons much as opening the cover wakes the tablet.

Is the Hudl 2 the best budget tablet about - my laptop is on the blink, it's a few years old so looking at replacing it soon but would like to get a tablet in the meantime.

Something with a decent sized screen with good quality resolution, can be used with a wireless keyboard for general web browsing, bit of gaming and maybe
streaming netflix and watching youtube vids, stuff like that.

Any other recommendations in the 50-100 quid kinda category?

I think I'm finally going to invest in an iPad Air 2 shortly. Looking at the 64GB Gold one.

What is the best type of external storage/hard drive for an iPad? Preferably one that works via connection or maybe Bluetooth (If that's possible). I endure a regular bus commute so it would be handy to be able to watch content from an external device, not having to clog up the iPad.

once you are in the app, search for Chess and from the list that comes up you can install any game that comes up.

I've been meaning to buy a tablet for a while and finally got round to it last week. I will only use it for basic stuff like browsing the net, Facebook and iPlayer, YouTube etc.

Took the plunge with a Hudl2 for just over £60 with clubcard voucher discount applied. Boosted the storage too with a 32gb micro SD card.

For the price, I'm impressed. Suits my needs and does everything I need it to do to a good level of performance. Seems a fairly decent build quality too, maybe apart from the tight power lead which you have to apply a fairly sturdy pull to to get out.

I was previously an Apple fan. However, much prefer the range of apps on the Google Play store and really can't justify the Apple prices when you can get something that can do the same things for a fraction of the price. Granted, Apple products generally do look nicer, but I tend to put a cover on whatever I buy, so the aesthetics don't really matter that much.

Stylus is crap.. I'd just lose it...

It depends what you're using your iPad for (they're not needed on a phone). If it's just general web surfing and normal app use then no, they're useless.

If you're doing any sort of more detailed work (written note taking, drawing, etc) then they are soooooo much better than using your finger.

I've been wanting a larger iPad for a while now, sure I've said it on here a few times. I use my current one (iPad 2) a lot for planning and organisation for a few projects I'm working on, as well as jotting down ideas which will often involve a quickly drawn image. I use a cheap stylus for this but can only guess it'll be 1000x better using a specifically designed Apple one.

Will definitely be getting a Pro and stylus.

The Pencil seems very nice, but the way you charge it is fucking daft.
