Through tonight, October 22, you can snag this top-notch machine with 32 gigabytes (GB) of storage for $79.99 as part of Best Buy’s massive 60-hour sale on Amazon devices. That’s a whopping $70 (so almost half off) its normal price of $149.99, which is what it’s currently going for on Amazon.
We named this tablet among the best of the best for its large, bright 10.1-inch display, which offered “reasonably true colors and black levels,” expandable storage (you can increase up to 512GB via optional microSD memory card for storing photos, videos, eBooks and other downloaded content) and its fast USB-C charging.
In testing, this bad boy made it through seven hours and 18 minutes of continuous video playback per charge. That makes it perfect for watching videos on the go, at home or while exercising on the treadmill. You can turn it sideways to enjoy video in full widescreen and take photos using the 2 mega-pixel (MP) rear camera. There’s also a 2MP front camera for your Zoom calls or selfies.
While the Fire HD 10 wasn’t the most feature-rich tablet on our list—it offers a limited selection of apps and doesn’t come loaded with the Google Play store—it’s one of the most affordable and reliable entry-level tablets you can find from a reputable brand, even at its regular price. In short? It will make for an ideal gift for the kids or grandma and grandpa as well as an awesome secondary device for reading or web surfing. It will also appeal to budget-conscious users who just want something to watch videos, access e-mail or play the occasional game on.
After all, at this discounted price, you’ll be laughing all the way to the “add to cart” button.
