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.
Summary: I WOULD NOT BUY ANOTHER ARCHOS TABLET!!! I had the archos 80 g9 and the headphone jack was busted right out of the box. I figured with blue tooth, I could get along without it. However, 3 ½ months later it would refuse to take a charge. In response to my warranty request they sent me a new charger .
Pros: Tablet worked well when it worked. Good internet response. Good handling of different video formats. Liked the way the tablet was set up. Good picture quality.
Cons: Headphone jack didn't work out of box Slow charging even with supplied charger (4-8 hours) Very loud beep with no pattern to its occurrence Stops charging at all or crashes and won't boot up (see other thoughts below)

Summary: WE GOT THIS TABLET AFTER THANKSGIVING AND GAVE IT TO HER FOR CHRISTMAS..SHE WAS SO EXCITED WHEN SHE OPENED IT IT LASTED 4 DAYS AND THEN IT WENT BLANK. WE TRIED TO SEND IT BACK TO COMPANY BUT NO REPLY FROM THEM AND AMAZON WILL NOT TAKE IT BACK BECAUSE IT WAS OVER 90 DAYS BECAUSE WE GAVE IT TO HER FOR...
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.
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.
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...
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!
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!
