Which ones best for just surfing net ?



Depends on user preference since I'd say almost all tablets nowadays will be able to browse the net smoothly. A bigger screen might be better if that's the primary use though. The 10 inch Lenovo A10 and 9 inch Nook HD+ are pretty popular and amongst the best value larger tablets.

Not bad, the yoga tablet is a good one

Noticed that earlier :). They have another listing for the 32gb model with the correct picture though. £20 more expensive so looks pretty certain it's just an incorrect picture with the 16gb listing.

Go for the 32Gb if you are looking to get a HD+. If the tab turns up and is a HD then you would get your money back. Oh wait....it's Argos.....

Both the HD and HD+ have micro sd slots though. For the price of the 32gb model you could almost get a 16gb model and a 64gb micro sd

You are very right on that fact. But.....I have had a two SD cards go wrong when used with a HD+. So although for the price difference you could get better memory I would still err on the side of caution and go for the higher memory size. I have had a 32Gb card in my HD+ for a while now and it is still working so I may have been unlucky. But I follow your logic

I'll admit low integrated memory does have it's downsides. I have the 8GB Nook HD model and although I do have a micro sd card plugged into it, having everything on internal storage would be preferable. Also some tablets are limited to installing apps only on internal memory

Hot! Thanks OP, just ordered Iconia 1 for my daughter!

Internal memory is multiple times faster than SD memory, which is why it's a really great idea to get a large internal storage to keep apps on. Nook HD+ is already dated; you don't want to make it worse by having I/O be yet another bottleneck.

Very cold.... these models are all outdate. Refurbished by argos means they were faulty customer returned.... dont worth a penny

Good point. Hadn't really considered the speed of internal memory over external. True that the Nooks are dated but still pretty good value for what they are. The screens used are still good by today's standards. Most 7" tablets still seem to be using a 1280x800 lcd, when the Nook HD had a 1440x900 res screen. And the Nook HD+ being a 9" had a 1920x1280 when last years Lenovo A10-70 10.1" tablet had a 1280x800 screen. Then again performance wise their processors would be inferior to most tablets nowadays but they're definitely good for 2012 tablets

2/3 of the tablets I put into the title of this post were first released June 2014. 8months old = outdated? (_;) Are you suggesting that every single person who returns an item to Argos does so only because it's faulty and if so do you honestly think Argos are taking these returned faulty returns and reselling them as faulty? oO Besides they come with a years warranty and if they weren't worth a penny then why would the Acer Iconia One B1-730 for example have had over 400 sold?

Yes, they are good value - I got one last June and I have no intention to replace it until the end of the year.

The processor (with CM12) is fine for watching videos and light web browsing, which is what I use it for.
The 1080p screen is still gorgeous, and many 2014/5 budget tablets still come with vastly inferior screens.

Dont bother with the Lenovo A10-70. The very second you finish updating it OTA, the wifi bug makes it practically unusable, and since Lenovo seem to have discontinued support for it, there doesnt appear to be any sort of fix on the horizon. It is a problem they are willfully ignoring in their own forum, even though its reported frequently.

If you are looking for a beautiful HD screen go for the Nook HD+. It's simply fantastic. But be aware that B&N no longer make 'em and the propritary charger is now very expensive to replace...

The acer have gone up in price 79 &. 99

If you look on the right hand side of the screen a little bit further down on the ebay page you will note it applies a 10% discount. That confused me too.

Groan, how long will it take some simple souls to realise that 9 times out of 10 'refurbs' from big sellers like Argos are simply factory overstock being cleared out
by manufacturers.

If you're intending to use a tablet largely for web browsing, then the quality of the screen is a major issue. In my experience, the Nook HD+ has the best screen on any budget tablet (unsurprising given that Barnes & Noble pitched it as a e-magazine reader amongst other things).

Note, however, the lack of any cameras, so video chat is out and the interface is far from stock Android. For the money, however, I think this is a great deal and is the tablet I'd go for from the list above. Heat added.

Recommend that A10 tab , very good for the price point.

I have iPad air but want a cheap small tablet to take on holidays abroad was thinking of a hudl on eBay around £60 or can I do better ??

True for the official cable but there are plenty of chinese cheapies on fleabay for as little as £2.10 delivered. The Nook HD+ will be three years old in November, so l advise anyone who has not got a spare to get one while they are available. Knowing the iffy quality of cheap chinese stuff, best get two.

No, they also include change of mind returned. I've received brand new items, just open box.

Depends on what you consider to be better. In terms of screen resolution I think the only other 7" tablet that rivals the original hudl in that price bracket is the Nook HD which also has the same 1440x900 resolution. Nook HD was posted earlier this week in a Blackwells deal for £50. However the Hudl would be better in terms of processor. The original Hudl has quite big bezels though so you could argue from a design perspective that others would be better. The Acer Iconia One B1-730HD is a dual core atom 1.6ghz whereas the Hudl is a quad 1.5ghz rockchip. On paper the Hudl sounds better but in some scenarios the atom might outperform the Hudl despite being dual core. For £45 I'd be tempted by the Acer over the Hudl but it depends on user preference I guess.

Technically the Acer which has a dual core atom 1.6ghz Z2560 whereas the Asus has a dual core 1.2ghz Z2520, although I doubt either would provide great gaming performance unless it's more basic games.

Ditto to that. :-)

Either that, or this:

Blaupunkt 10.1inch Android KitKat tablet - Endeavour 101 £53.99 @ Sainsburys (instore) - hotukdeals.com/dea…890

@dreadzone101, it will be for basic games.

Another vote for a lenovo A10.

Had one for about a month, extremely competent tablet. Based on my experience so far would highly recommend it, and at this price even better.

The Acer B1-730 one has better specs compared to that Asus one and is cheaper so I'd go for that one if I were choosing one of those.

Can a tablet be used with a micro so card to play all my music on? Any apps similar to iTunes or better so I can create play I sets, sort the whole library, add album covers etc... So I can then Bluetooth my entire collection to my soundbar?

Do any of these support a stylus? (active digitalizer, not the big rubber tipped ones)

Personally looking at the specs I'd pic the Acer B1-730 too. Though, if you are just in the market for a cheapo tablet I'd get one of these:

amazon.co.uk/Dra…88x

Only seems to lack HDMI out.

Note: Also available in pink, yellow, green, red and blue and has Zoodles (kid safe mode). Plus you can get chunky rubber covers for them.

I'm tempted by the Acer Iconia 10.1 but also noticed they have the Asus Transformer Tf103c - [url=]Asus Any opinions on whether there's a big difference? Likely to be used to stream video but also a some gaming, although probably not anything too graphically demanding.

As long as you make sure the tablet has bluetooth and a micro sd slot, then I don't see there being a problem doing that. Not sure what app would be most similar to iTunes but any tablet should have a default music app which would allow you to add music from sd card, create playlists etc. I don't really play music on my android devices but there's certainly lots of various apps on the google play store which you could download to see which is best for your needs.

I don't think any of the ones I've listed do but Argos also do the Galaxy Note 8 which has the s-pen. Would cost £125 after discount.

Judging from the specs, they appear to be very similar although the Asus might be slightly better with a 1.3ghz quad over the 1.2ghz quad of the Acer. There is also the Lenovo A10-70 which is similar spec too (2nd on my list).
