Excerpt: Pros This is a good overall tablet for someone on a budget. See comments in the ratings. Cons Not very many accessories available for it and I lost the SD card at least once due to it's placement next to the power button.
Works Great- Had issue connecting to WPA-2 Router...
Uncle NuNu "gcapp99", Amazon
3 March 2012
Summary: Got it for a remarkably low $230.99 delivered here on Amazon, plus it arrived in 2 days! After I unboxed it and charged it up, I stepped through the Archos Wizard setup which includes wifi settings. It showed "connected" to my WPA-2 router but it would not communicate. Archos tech support- less than a minute on hold- was very helpful in explaining that the 101 G9 sometimes has issues with WPA security.
Summary: I bought the original Archos 101 16 gig tablet about a year ago. The touch screen stopped working and had to go to Archos for repair. Archos replaced the unit. Customer service was terrific. The Wifi works well and I am able to watch art product demos on YouTube, send and receive email, surf the web, and listen to my favorite radio station. The built in stand is a real plus. Great tool and great toy.
Excerpt: The screen is excellent, the build quality isn't the most beautiful and it's plastic all around, but the tablet is quite sturdy. The touch screen is quite responsive does work with 1080p movies with 16:9 aspect ratio which is great. I got the 8Gb version, but there is a MicroSD port that goes up...
Summary: May be plastic, but still feels very robust. I have the 101G9 16GB with the 1.2GHz processor, so a bit nippier than the 8GB one. I went into shops and compared the feel, build quality and screen quality of a large number of tablets - and for the price, this was the best buy in my book - and there WILL be ICS for these!
Pros: Excellent screen
Cons: Can run sluggish after opening too many apps (lack of RAM)
Summary: I purchased this item about 4 weeks ago, and from an hardware point of view it is rather good. Display is nice and bright, really good battery life and doesn't feel too plasticky. I use it for browsing, watching movies, reading books and video calling abroad. Skype works OK, but Google talk video calls have in my opinion the best quality on this device.
Excerpt: El archos 101 g9 turbo es de los tablets más completos del mercado, y de los más baratos. la funcionalidad que le da android 4.0 es óptima, si bien, el interfaz no va fluido al 100, va lo suficientemente fluido para apenas notarse saltos. el tamaño del tablet con relación al tamaño de pantalla tiene una buena relación, y tiene características propias que se agradecen, como el soporte trasero, o el hecho de poderle integrar un stick 3g, disminuyendo el precio de salida.
