Best 9-10 inch Tablet for ~$200

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So my girlfriend's HP Touchpad that she has been using for over a year is practically bricked beyond repair. She needs something shortly before her classes start up again and I am trying to look for something (preferably android or something I can put android on) that I can get for roughly $200. The other requirement is that it needs to be 9-10 inches.

So unfortunately, that leaves out some great options, like the new Nexus 7 and some others. I do not mind looking at refurbished either, but a warranty would be a plus.

Only decent options I have found so far:
1. Nook Hd+ (I can throw CM10 on there with ease)
2. Maybe this - Pipo Max M9 10.1 inch. Never heard of it though.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I just picked up a Nook HD+ a couple days ago, I slapped CM10.1 on it and I absolutely love this tablet!

You should be able to get one for 150 or less if you catch a good deal and you wont be dissapointed.

Edit: if you do get a Nook HD+, I used this guide to put CM 10.1 on it and it took less than 10 minutes

I've had the Pipo M9 tablet since April 2013 and I've never really had any major problems with it. It's actually a pretty good tablet stock but really shines once you root it and upgrade the firmware. The company itself pushes out an english JB ROM 4.2.2 and the tablet has definitely been worth the price I've paid for it.

refurbished Asus transformer T300 for $200 maybe? I bought a toshiba excite 10.1 at305 for $240 a month or 2 ago. Its quite nice for me as my first android device. the transformer has a slightly better screen and can be rooted.

I would personally recommend getting the M9 pro since it has 3g but my M9 does work with a 3g dongle.

They've also recently come out with the M7 Pro which I think is within the price range you'r looking for. It's just an 8.9" tablet version of the M9 pro (10.1"). It has the same specs across the board wth really the only difference the size in real estate.

If you have any other questions about my Pipo M9 tablet just post here or shoot me a PM!

Thanks for all of the help everyone, she was really eyeing the nice 10 inch tablets when we went to a few stores, but she didn't really speak up since they were twice the price. With that said, I ended up getting her a Nexus 10, which is what I have as well. I found that Transformer on slickdeals a few days ago when we were looking, but it seems like it still is plagued with I/O issues that cause a lot of lag. I figured I would spend the money on something she would actually be happy with, rather than settling on something else.
