Archos 5 Internet Tablet Review

LAPTOP Magazine
4 November 2009
  • Summary: We like the Archos 5 Internet Tablet's wide array of features and the fact that you can access a growing array of Android apps. As a media device, it offers more screen size than its closest competitors, and a decent array of content options. However, we wouldn't recommend this gadget as a GPS navigator or gaming device. If you're willing to live with these drawbacks, the Archos 5's excellent display, media playback, and surfing speed will satisfy.

Archos 5 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 October 2008
  • Excerpt: The Archos 5 is the sexiest device yet from the French PMP pioneer. It has a sleeker body than its predecessors, and eschews physical controls for an entirely touch-based interface. Available in 60, 120, and 250GB hard drive capacities, it's even priced reasonably, though you'll need to buy some add-ons to access some features.

  • Conclusion: As a video player and web surfing tablet, the Archos 5 is the cream of the crop. The screen is absolutely fantastic, and large enough to really enjoy a movie and read web pages without constant zooming. Yet the player is small (albeit heavy) and slim. There's plenty of storage, ranging from 60- 250 gigs to hold a large video and music library.

Archos 5 Internet Tablet

PC Magazine
20 October 2006
  • Conclusion: Besides the half-baked Android implementation on the latest Archos 5 Internet Tablet, not much has changed from last year's device, and the touch-screen PMP competition is only getting tougher.
  • Pros: Sleek design. Huge, beautiful, high-res screen. Built-in Wi-Fi, browser. On-screen home button for one-click Main Menu access. No need for stylus. Available in large capacities.
  • Cons: Expensive. Touch-screen interface is not as sophisticated as those of competitors. Apps aren't well-executed. UI could stand to be streamlined—requires too many clicks at times.

  • Conclusion: This hard drive based PMP offers oodles of storage and a lot of the features that come with the flash-based iPod touch, including built-in Wi-Fi, a Web browser, and a big, beautiful touch screen.
  • Pros: Tons of storage. Sleek design. Huge, beautiful screen. Built-in Wi-Fi and Web browser. On-screen home button for one-click main menu access. No need for stylus.
  • Cons: Quite expensive. Power button is also the reset button. Touch-screen interface is not as sophisticated as iPod touch's. UI could stand to be streamlined a bit—requires too many clicks at times.

  • Summary: Archos's big-screen slab is an all-in-one media monster that's a movie buff's wet dream.
  • Pros: Large, glorious touchscreen. Whopping hard drive.
  • Cons: It's big and heavy. Somebody call the osteopath!
