    The first row of table comparison (the tablet names) seems to be left over from the old table?

    Oops. Indeed, I forgot to change that part. Fixed now.

    Any recommendations for something similar, except with 1GB RAM and slightly higher screen resolution?

    Colorfly e708 maybe, it’s 90USD, but it has WXGA and Quad Core, too?

    I can’t really recommend because I’ve never tried, but Pipo S1s for about $80 seem to match your requirements. 1GB, 1024×600 resolution. You can use a parametric search (left column) in Aliexpress.

    512MB :s Surely they could have ditched the rear cam and put in 1GB for almost the same cost…

    @cnxsoft Good spot on the Aliex vendor trick, one of quite a few, sadly…

    XDA released a list with the best tablet and smartphones of 2013 – http://www.xda-developers.com/holiday-guide-2013/holiday-guide-2013-tablets/

    No cheap Chinese devices there though, and most prices are over $200.

    That “Hello and welcome!” shop has lots of tablets at impossible prices (I found them all the time during my searches), they have no feedback at all. Don’t buy from them.

    I can’t say that the RK devices I’ve tried were significantly better than Allwinner…

    Actually, I think unless there is a Qualcomm or Samsung CPU inside, performance is going to be hit and miss. And a known brandname does not guarantee ongoing support (but lack of it pretty much guarantees absence of support)

    every allwinner device i had none worked the way it should of worked tablet or hdmi stick i cannot even find romf for the device ampe a85. although i never had a rockchip tablet i had many tv stick and i never had problems with it. and you cannot compare these two to samsung or snapdragon but then you get what you pay for

    For those interested there’s a picture of IPPO Q8H (which looks roughly the same as Q88H) tablet board and current hacking status @ http://linux-sunxi.org/Ippo_q8h

    Well I had one RK3066 stick die on me (wont do anything) and the RK3066 tablet sadly fails to work with HDMI. My A10/A20 boards at least work with HDMI reliably but have other interesting bugs that make them less than suitable for any real use…

    I sort of wish someone took the Qualcomm Cortex A7 quad from the MotoG (a seriously smooth phone for a ridiculously low price) and put it into a 100USD TV box with a real wifi antenna. There, problem solved.

    Failing that, does anyone have a recommendation for a box that will actually work in 1080p24 in XBMC (internal decoder, no MXPlayer hacks) and has somewhat decent WiFi performance?

    @Someone from the other side
    Have you tried any AMLogic devices? There are normally better for XBMC support. I’m not sure about 1080p24 support however.
