    First off don't flame...

    I've been looking at android tablets and am trying to decide on one to buy. I am working with a limited budget and only want to spend between $100-$200 at the most. My problem is that every time I think I decide on one, some one reviews it terrible.

    here is what I am looking for:

    front facing camera
    WiFi
    800Mhz or higher processor
    multi touch display
    Memory card support
    2Gb or higher internal memory
    7in or higher display
    Android Market

    any recommendations and websites to order them off of/local stores?

    Thanks!

    That is a lot to ask for in that budget range and if you do find something that has everything in that range its most likely a buyer beware situation. If you haven't already don't forget to take into consideration that the items battery is of great importance as well.
    If you can bump your budget up to 250-300 you can definately find everything you would want with at least a decent amount of quality as well. Archos makes some nice tablets in your price range although Im not entirely sure if they all have front facing cameras.

    at 250$ there is a tablet that has what you need...but for just 200$...I don't know of any good ones. You can take a look at http://sf-zone.net/android_tablets for a comparison between different android tablets. Hope that helps.

    I really like the archos 7 but it didn't have the android market on it. I think that's kinda of a deal breaker.

    Adding the Android market isn't hard at all, there are a couple of posts at the Archos subforums here on it, I have a thread there which includes the Google Project code link, as well as instructions on how to see even more apps on the Android Market.

    I looked at the Archos today...my thoughts are that if you don't have a 1Ghz processor then future upgrades are kind of a bust. 2.2 really needs that 1ghz to run good from what I've read.

    A 1ghz processor wouldnt be a terrible idea if you are intending to upgrade to honeycomb in the future either. Im running 2.2 on an 800mhz Herotab and its ok. Does not bog down to terribly on videos are games, its not awesome by any means. I believe the correct wording would to state that it is functional and does what I need it to. My galaxy tab blows it out of the water any day though.
