@J.R. "gave most of the good ways"? It sounds a bit better but still very odd to my ears.

Sorry, but "gave most of good ways"? Is that standard AmEng?

comment How to avoid repetition
I'm not the greatest with punctuation, admittedly, but why would X and Y each have two different prices? Are they not two different products on sale with two distinct prices? X=$200.00 and Y=$300.00 I suppose if X and Y had the same price tag then my suggestion could stand but I'm not sure adding the comma would remove the ambiguity (which I'm struggling to see). Perhaps this is a case when repetition is required in order to avoid any ambiguity.

Put the two subjects together to make one clause. For example: "The price of X Tablet and Y tablet is $120.00 and $140.00 respectively".
