I don't use one. I bought an ipad but the missus has claimed it as her own. I also have a JXD but haven't got round to setting it up, I do most of my retro gaming on my Pandora.

Hudl 2, used a Gift card and double up vouchers, only cost me about £40 of my own money.

Can't fault it, not the best, but by no means the worst on the market. Mainly used for gaming, actually about the only thing I use for gaming now. :?

Just my JXD 7800b that I use primarily for retro stuff.

Nexus (7?) - mainly for quick browsing and for kids to use. It's OK for the price

I thought the Nexus 7 was excellent when it was first released, but time has moved on a bit in the intervening three years and, sadly, Google aren't offering a replacement in the same price bracket; there's only the larger Nexus 9 and the outsize phone that is the Nexus 6, both of which are much more expensive. For about the same money, it's either the Hudl 2 or the MeMO Pad 8 these days, neither of which look like much of a leap forwards.

I think I'll probably just hang on until the Shield Tablet 2 hits the market later this year; the original model was very tempting, but the reports of it running hot and the eventual recall put me off. It could be interesting to see games like Crysis 3 running on Android; even the Surface Pro 3 can't quite manage that at playable frame rates.

Yer, I did one android update on the Nexus 7 and it wasn't quite as good after that. Now I've got an iphone 6 plus, that's really reduced my tablet usage

2 iPad 2s (One for me, one for my eldest) and a Lenovo tablet for the missus. Of the two types its the (considerably cheaper) Lenovo that's impressive. Better sound, connection options, SD Card and so on. Great with a Chromecast.

I am irritated that my iPad won't properly link to my sonos WiFi set up, apparently a patch isn't available to stream automatically from apple music until the new year, why so long???

As I have invested so much through purchases in iTunes it makes no sense to change platform, that's how they get you I guess! However I feel some moral high ground having paid for artists work!
