Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet

A bright, sharp tablet for gaming, media and more

$94.99 at Amazon
$139.99 Save $45.00

Amazon advertises their Fire HD 10 tablet as "built for relaxation," and that's a pretty apt description. It's not a powerhouse like a high-end iPad that will let you edit video or work on large graphics files, but for media streaming, Web surfing or mobile gaming it's a dependable piece of kit with some nice perks. Boasting a 1080p Full HD display powered by an octa-core processor that's 25% faster than the last generation, the Fire 10 In our review, we said that it "offers the best blend of performance, price, and size in the Fire lineup," and gave it an Editors' Choice award.

If you're anything like us, the number of devices hooked up to your home Wi-Fi network is getting ridiculous. In addition to the desktops, laptops and consoles, we've got smart speakers and TVs, security cameras, cell phones and more. Trying to pump all that traffic through a single router is a recipe for disaster. That's why mesh Wi-Fi is the wave of the future. This budget system comprises three nodes that intelligently balance the load for optimal throughput. In our review of the TP-Link Deco AX3000, we said the system was "a breeze to install and you can manage it with a user-friendly mobile app that comes with a lifetime subscription to TP-Link’s HomeCare parental controls and anti-malware tools."
