  • Conclusion: In sum, Archos did a fair job of balancing features over cost. The awkward arrangement of the buttons and ports is our biggest complaint, most likely a consequence of rushing to market.
  • Pros: Low price for a 10-inch slate, Good display quality, Excellent multimedia apps
  • Cons: Cheap look and feel, No rear camera, Poor recording quality from front-facing camera

Archos 101 G9 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
24 October 2011
  • Summary: The Archos 101 G9 offers plenty of features for $369, including a big 10.1-inch screen, Android Honeycomb, and even HDMI output. However, its poor build quality, short battery life, and high operating temperature make it a bad deal at any price.

  • Conclusion: The Archos 101 G9 is a functional, up-to-date Android tablet at a reasonable price, although it doesn't really stand out aside from 1080p file support.
  • Pros: Smooth 1080p video playback. Includes an HDMI port and a kickstand. Archos-specific music and video player apps work well.
  • Cons: Pedestrian design. Poor battery life. Still buggy, even with latest firmware update.

  • Conclusion: What this boils down to is a tablet that’s hard to judge in overall terms. If you like swanky hardware you probably won’t like the Archos 101 G9. If you are looking for something primarily for media consumption you probably will. If you want a great camera you’ll be disappointed.

  • Excerpt: The Archos 101 G9 tablet has been available since the end of last year, but it's one of the first tablets to receive an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which makes it one of the most up-to-date tablets available.

Archos 101 G9 in-depth review -

Mobile Choice UK
12 December 2011
  • Summary: The exterior of the Archos 101 G9 is certainly its weakest point with a cheap, plasticky feel and the dull grey colour doesn’t add to its sex appeal As with virtually all Android Honeycomb 3.2 tablets, it’s very easy to rattle through the set up process and get all your social networking and email...
  • Pros: Good value at £269.99, cheaper than most of its rivals, meaty specs with powerful CPU and reasonable RAM, wide-ranging video support covers almost every format
  • Cons: Cheap plastic build quality, poor battery life, takes a long time to recharge, no rear-facing camera, measly 1.2-megapixel front-facer

  • Summary: The Archos 101 G9 is a well-priced tablet that is great for movie fans, but its disappointing battery life and plasticky chassis are a letdown.

  • Cons: Disappointing build quality; mediocre 1.2mp snapper; no rear-facing camera; short battery life

  • Conclusion: Android tablets are something of a minefield. The unique proposition of the Archos tablet is that it delivers the Honeycomb experience at a price that's hard to beat. It also, undoubtedly, offers the widest diversity of format support in any tablet we've seen so far.
  • Pros: Plays pretty much every video format, HDMI, 3G option is inventive
  • Cons: Build quality, design, display, some software foibles, battery issues, failure to play Flash video
