I'm looking for a cheap tablet that can do the basic video viewing and pdf reading. What can you recommend to be a cheap tablet?

Whats your budget?

 

I highly recommend the Google Nexus 7 FHD 2013.

There is some tablets from $30 but I am unsure if they'd last very long. I suspect they may be coming from China also, so discretion is advised.

Here's a tablet from TigerDirect for $66

This tablet is not dirt cheap like $50, its a good price, considering its full Windows 8 on it

Hello,

 

Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook all come to mind as good tablets.

Where abouts do you live? Assuming the US given the above responses.

 

If you are in the UK then Tesco's Hudle seems to be a pretty good cheap tablet, but if your budget can stretch I would agree with the above, Nexus 7 is a brilliant piece of kit.

Canada. So an Android device would suffice, not win 8? Because my wife has a win 8 laptop so I thought it would be nice for synchronization.

I'd go for a windows tablet because they offer alot of bang for your buck, I added a link for the Dell tablet in this thread above

If all I wanted was video playback and PDF reading, I'd still be using my Blackberry Playbook (seriously).  They should be pretty cheap on ebay.

BB is dead but you got a 64GB tablet that can pretty much do a lot of things for cheap.

I'll look into it. I can see these on ebay.ca, other retailers don't have it.

I bought mine in Amazon and not regret so far. The best thing that the playbook have is adobe flash.

i've been reading that it doesn't run android apps, even with the workarounds, like Netflix, for example.

Yup, I have been unable to run netflix on the playbook. I use my Nokia 1520 to watch netflix on my bed. If apps are your priority then the playbook is not the best choice for you.

If you can stretch to $199, these guys sometimes have Surface RTs with 32G for that price. 

 

They don't have any right now, but they probably will again shortly. You'd have to have it shipped to the States, though.
