A lot of new tech is out there and it’s hard to choose what to buy and how much to pay for a device — some people can’t afford to drop $700 dollars on a new tablet or phone, for example. They’re looking for stuff that is under $200, but gadgets still good enough to get the job done. This is where we turn to the users of Reddit to find the 10 best tech toys under $200.

As expected, the top of the list is Chromecast which is being sold for $35 in most places. Chromecast is cheap and is well worth the money in terms of wanting to play your favorite video content on your TV, or songs from your own personal collection.

One Reddit user suggested the Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (UE Boom). It comes in under $200 and out of 1,152 customer reviews, it ranks in at 4.5 stars. Another Reddit user commented, “It’s significantly better than Beats Pill or Bose Soundlink Mini, which are in the same price range.” So, this one has a lot of good ratings for the price.

Here’s the full list in no particular order:

1. Chromecast

2. UR Boom

3. Pebble Watch

4. Thermal camera for Android and IOS

5. Second-generation Nexus 7

6. Quadcopter

7. Upcoming Asus Smartwatch (rumored to be under $200)

8. Raspberry Pi

9. Acer C720 Chromebook

10. Seagate Central 4TB Personal Cloud Storage
