Just as the Nexus 7 is old but still good, the Asus MeMO Pad 7 ME572C seems late, but still solid.

If you're looking for a kid's tablet or something to browse Amazon content on, it's a good deal.

affordable and cheery Android tablet

The Dell Venue 8 (2014) comes in under the $200 mark and will serve up all your favorite videos in full HD. It can't match the Tab S on speed or features, but it's a solid value for on-the-go media consumption.
