Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 SM-T530 10.1" Quad-Core 16GB Tablet with Android 4.4 KitKat - White
Decent for the price
Had the opportunity to pick this up at $260 with a free Samsung Level Box Mini speaker (latter possibly discontinued), and have been using both for some time now.
This tablet is good. No slowdowns, no battery or touchscreen issues. The screen resolution is fine for daily activities, but anything high def (e.g. youtube HD, games) will show lots of blocky pixels (a big let down for me, given the size and brightness). This is my first 10" so I was not prepared for the tiredness of hefting the device, and often use it on my lap. There is some Samsung bloatware on the device, none intrusive enough to require removal (only aware of them when they're updated).
The speaker is decent as well. Doesn't get very loud or thumpy (compared to my Bose soundlink mini), but no range or pairing issues. Strangely noticed that it vibrates at high volumes, though no distortion so far.

Great overall performance. Nice picture, size and battery life. Good replacement for laptop or phone. My kids have the 7" tablet and had no issues other then the small screen, the 10" is perfect.

Great Father's Day Gift
Bought this for my dad, since he was saying that his eyes were hurting from reading with a smaller tablet. So hopefully he finds this tablet more suitable for him, which I think it very much likely will be. Although it was just a gift getting the tablet for an awesome price was an extra bonus. So kudos to The Source.

Handy little tablet.
My first Android tablet so it took a while to get used to using it. Very handy for traveling and around the house. I like the Google Play books for buying and reading books (some are free) and I like Google Play news stand for a good variety of news articles. Battery life is reasonable. A good all around tablet for fast web browsing and ebook reading.
