As I’ve mentioned numerous occasions earlier than, Amazon gear goes on sale like clockwork. For instance, in late June the brand new Hearth HD Eight pill was discounted for the primary time. Then once more in July. Now, only a few weeks later, right here we’re once more.

For a restricted time, and whereas provides final, the Amazon Fire HD 8 (32GB) is $59.99, a financial savings of $30. You too can get the Fire HD 8 Plus (32GB) for $79.99, one other financial savings of $30.

The previous-gen Hearth HD Eight was a superb pill at a terrific worth, however the brand new mannequin ups the ante with a sooner processor, USB-C charging, a bit extra RAM, higher battery life and smarter front-camera placement. Learn David Carnoy’s Fire HD 8 review to learn more. (For what it is price, I disagree that an Amazon Prime membership is “a should.” Sure, it features a ton of media goodies, however you may nonetheless do loads with the pill — play video games, use apps, learn ebooks, watch Netflix and so forth — with out Prime.)

In the meantime, there’s the Fire HD 8 Plus, which provides much more RAM and helps wi-fi charging. Learn Carnoy’s Fire HD 8 Plus review for the inside track on this setup.

Really feel like 32GB is not sufficient storage? To my considering there isn’t any level in paying further up entrance for the 64GB fashions. You’ll be able to simply and cheaply add extra, simply by popping in a microSD card. 

Additionally on sale proper now: The 2019 Fire HD 10 tablet for $99.99, which ties its all-time low. Just like the newly upgraded HD 8, it options an upgraded processor, USB-C and so forth. (Alas, wi-fi charging is not within the combine.)

For sure, if you happen to miss this sale, there might be one other one. (Undoubtedly on Prime Day, at any time when that seems to be, however most likely earlier than as properly.) My take: If you would like a smallish pill for books, films, video games and the like, the brand new Hearth HD Eight for $60 is a stupendous deal. However the HD 10 for $100 is fairly nice as properly.

Your ideas?
