Excerpt: The name pretty much gives away this tablet. The Archos 32 Internet Tablet is probably the smallest tablet available to consumers. This tablet has a 3.2 inch screen and it has a resistive screen. This tablet runs on Android 2.1. I find that the Android version is not upgradeable.
Summary: Really better than ever expected it to be. Sturdy little thing, does everything I need. I really don't want to pack a cell-phone, but this allows me to keep in touch with my hot spot if needing to. Grocery and other list aways with me. Can even read a book while waiting in unexpected situations. Paid $99.99, couldn't believe the price.
Summary: i say buy something that works better rather than a touch screen, get what matters more to you. unless its for an elementary kid were they are verly learning or dont mind (because they are not the best at taking care of things)
Pros: Its cheap
Cons: Its rubish, the touch screen is horrible, and if you press to hard you feel like its going to break. Also like some people mentioned, it sometimes wount read the wifi, you must have a very strong wifi or get close to it. wount even reach the rooms for me (were normally my ps3 get 65% signal, good enough to play)
Summary: I have owned Archos devices in the past and I have been very pleased with their quality and durability. However, I recently purchased 2 of these(Archos 32 3.2") and neither of them worked properly from day 1. One of the two would only connect to my wifi if I disabled my security. This was clearly not going to happen. The second unit would tell me that it was "out of range", even when I set it directly on top of my router.
Summary: Worst purchase I ever made. Don't buy product from Archos.
Pros: Nice looking, and compact device.
Cons: Device broke after 6 months of use, and won't turn on again. Had problems even before it broke: It freezes often, had to drain battery and recharge before it restarts. MP3 player randomly pauses. Tried to call and email customer service. No reply for email yet. Wife was on hold for 1/2 hour after calling their 630 area code customer support number (not toll free) and finally gave up.
superb music performance and all round great little machine
26 November 2011
Summary: purchased this to replace my trusty L Player which has the best music performance of any device i have ever owned. the 32 is not bad at all with a pair of decent sennheisers attached. it really performs well the android experience is not bad either. the 32 was every bit as responsive as my next door neighbours iconia tablet. the screen is resistive but i think thats ideal for the screen size. using multi touch on a smaller screen is a complete waste of time.
Summary: Do not buy the Archos 32 or any Archos products!! I bought this product and it broke within four months. The built quality of the Archos 32 is really bad. The whole structure is flimsy and my device screen mysteriously shattered into pieces and that was the end of my Archos 32. I don't know how it happened and many other people have experienced the same thing.
Summary: could be alittle better for the price but not much to complain about
Pros: Great Little Device can do alot with some know how does everything i need it to do. screen big enought to watch video surf the net not many slow downs
Cons: Screen looks like it has a Refresh Rate of 30hz when scrolling the you can not read the wording the Screen is Very Cheap pressing at different points on the screen sometimes will cause it too press else where sometimes can be annoying and Boot time takes forever. and that you should be able to upgrade the firm higher.
Summary: I bought it for my son, set it up for him and gave it to him. He said it was great, it did what he wanted to do with it, and had no complaints.....until the LED screen broke in his pocket a week after he got it. Of course the warranty didn't cover damage to the screen so....it is currently at the manufacturers getting an estimate for repair. I strongly suggest a protective cases of some sort and don't carry it in a pants pocket.
