'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Fall is rapidly approaching, which means that even those of us who work from home don't actually need to work at home. Instead, the local coffee shop, park, or even the porch swing can be your office if you've got the right tech.

Whether checking emails or putting together a clutch presentation, Galaxy's tablets have always been a reliable workhorse. That goes for older models as well as new ones. So if you don't need the latest and greatest features, this refurbished Samsung Galaxy Tab A might be a steal at just $138.99.

If you haven't bought refurbished before, you should know these tablets may have seen use but are still completely functional. This model even comes with a third-party warranty on parts and labor. It's essentially a like-new tablet at over $150 off!

For that price, you get an impressive amount of tech. This tablet packs a 1.4GHz quad-core Cortex A-53, which can handle games, multitasking, and general app workloads. It also has 32GB of internal memory, which you can load with documents, photos, videos, and more.

Speaking of which, the dual camera setup makes this tablet a great vacation companion; there's a 5MP main camera on the back for those panoramic views and a 2MP front-facing camera for remote meetings or selfies. And the results will all look sharp on the tablet's 8-inch LCD screen. Lastly, the Tab A comes with WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, so you can pair it up with your favorite accessories and start working right out of the box.

Right now, this refurbished 2018 Samsung Galaxy Tab A is available for $138.99, a discount of 53% off the original MSRP.
