Today's Dealmaster is headlined by a trio of discounts on Amazon's Fire HD tablets. The deals drop the Fire HD 8 to $60, the Fire HD 8 Plus to $80, and the Fire HD 10 to $100. Though we've seen these tablets discounted a handful of times already this year, each offer matches the lowest price we've seen for each device to date.
The thrust of the Fire HD line is getting goodenough hardware and performance for significantly lower prices than Apple's iPads or a premium Android tablet. The three slates here don't change that value proposition: even Apple's entry-level iPad offers a more premium design, a better display, and a more comprehensive app library to those willing to pay for it. But if you're determined to pay $100 or less for a tablet, the Fire HD slates are generally good buys.
At its current price, the 8-inch Fire HD 8 might be the best value of the bunch: it offers a moderately sharp 1280x800 display in a comfortable design, its battery can last a few days on a charge, and while it's never outright fast, it performs competently for the basic media consumption for which it's intended. Just don't expect much in the way of gaming.
