Summary: Worked great out of the box, but wait until you need service or need to replace the battery. Archos service is NON-EXISTENT. They don't answer emails and the phone lines automatically disconnect you. Now I need to find a third party service center just to change the battery. Eventually your battery will also deteriorate and you will be left with a brick. Search for there service complaints before you buy.

Summary: Has some very impressive features that impressed me but the one I purchased was not very durable. I bought one for my college son as a B'day gift and it developed a very small under screen crack in one corner after about a month. Unfortunately we bought it when there was no unit on display and could not tell from the carton picture how the thin plastic case can flex. Should have taken it back to the store rather then take a chance with it.
Summary: I've had this for a year, and it is hands-down the worst electronics product I've purchased in the past 10 years. Firmware was buggy from the start under Android ICS, and it has only gotten worse with Jelly Bean. Runs SLOW 90 percent of the time. Like to load you tablet up with apps? Forget it. Check the Archos forums for threads describing how installing anything beyond the bare-bones OEM apps means that the performance grinds to a halt.
Seems like a good product for the price but support is horrible

Summary: I purchased an Archos 10.1 G9. I got it set with apps/programs and accessories and then gave it to my daughter for her birthday. It has a nice display and has connection options which are nice. The mini-usb plug seems flimsy which may have just been the one I received. In all, reasonably happy going in for the money spent. The problem started after she had used it for 6-8 weeks when the battery stopped accepting a charge.
Summary: I agree with everything written negatively about this pad in all the reviews thus far. To recap, it locks up frequently, letters stick as you are typing, it shuts off automatically and reboots, customer support doesn't exist, the camera is ridiculous as there is no peep hole to see what you are picturing, etc. My husband bought this as a Christmas gift for me in Dec 2012 from P.C. Richards.
Summary: I have owned the Archos 101 g9 tablet since Dec. 2012. It's nothing but trouble! It constantly goes "back" as if the back button is being hit. I've found a very temporary fix for it....by re-setting the touch screen calibration & accelerometer calibration. This "fix" doesn't even last a day! IF, I can even get to the settings page to re-set those. Camera is horrible, & the tablet will reboot itself often. I've never left a bad review, but this one deserves it.
Summary: I bought this tablet in December 2011. Six months later I started experiencing lots of problems; freezing at least 2 to 3x during use, overheating, flashing screen, keyboard not working properly. I contacted Archos and they asked me to return the tablet to them which cost me $25! Archos was very efficient by sending me a second tablet in good time. Guess what? 3 weeks later the freezing was back! Am I so out of luck that I got 2 lemons in 8 months?
