    "At well less than $500, Asus gives a great value for the dollar. The design and features are similar to a tablet twice the price, and with a standard size you can use other brands' cases and accessories. I've had great luck with Asus brand products."

    "Just bought the Fire 7 Tablet with Alexa and I am so impressed with it! It is $49.99 on Amazon and that is a steal! If you need more memory than the 8gb you can upgrade to 16 for only $20. The 7” screen is nice and sharp and everything loads quickly. The battery seemed to last a decent amount of time for me, about 8 hours. I haven’t used Alexa that much as I mostly have been using this tablet for watching movies, reading and surfing the net. For the price, the Fire 7 can't be beat. "

    "This is the first Apple product I have tried. Since it was $369, and apple is considered a quality company, I figured I might as well try an I pad. And I think I have been converted! This Apple product is the best thing I have ever used! It is small, lightweight, and has a ton of storage. It is also has a fast touch-response system. I am very pleased with the quality and performance of this I pad. I know it will last me for a long time!"

    "I have always been an apple girl. I wanted to buy a new table for under $500 and found the Apple iPad Pro 9.7. I like how big this tablet is! A nice change of pace from my older generation iPads. I like the live shot feature on this iPad. It brings my memories to life without having to sacrifice my storage space completely with videos!"
