Not sure about the Galaxy tablet,...but I've had much success with the Nexus-7 32 GB Tablet and the Nexus-10 32 GB Tablet.

+1 for nexus 10 I have one and love it. I would wait before buying one google may announce a new tablet at their i/o conference this week.

swappa.com is a good place to get a used one for a good price

I found a refurb Nexus 7 16gb that I am thinking about buying. I have other uses for it but I would like to use it for Kodi as well. I want to treat it like a second screen for when I am working on my media folders so I don't have to move back and forth so much. I would like it to be able to play h264 but only enough to test.

The OP mentioned great success with the 32 gb model but is there any reason I can't use this model for what little I need from it?

Questions about Kodi on an Asus/HP/Acer/Dell ChromeBox?

I guess I will just figure this out on my own. Sorry to waste anyone's time reading my question.

I use a Nexus 7 2013 16GB and it is fine. I get around the space limit with an OTG adapter and I use a slimport to output to a TV when I travel.
