Engadget Summary

If you're looking for a 10-inch tablet for under $300, you won't find many options, and in that small niche, the Asus MeMo Pad Smart 10 could be your best choice. As Liliputing puts it, "Asus was able to keep the price relatively low by opting for a processor that’s been on the market for over a year and using an acceptable, but less-than-stellar display," resulting in "a reasonably attractive, portable, and sturdy tablet for the price." However, if you're willing to spend another $100, "you can get a whole lot more tablet for your money." Android Police concurs, saying that "if you absolutely cannot go over $300, the MeMO Pad Smart is a pretty good option" though at $400, "a whole new world of options are opened up, including the powerhouse [Samsung] Nexus 10." You can also spend about $200, and get a 7-inch tablet that offers similar performance to the MeMo Pad Smart 10, such as the Asus Nexus 7.
