Summary: I bought this as a present we had an issue (Wifi would constantly connect and disconnect) with the first thought nothing of it and got a replacement (Amamzon were great BTW). The second came and after a week more problems this time is was battery/screen just kept flashing on and off - This time we got a refund. Potentially maybe we were unlucky (especially as we splashed out on Smasung Tab 2 and that had issues a few weeks in (with charger port).
Summary: I bought this for my wife as a present, and now after 8 months,, wish I had spent extra and gone for a Samsung or something similar. Pros: - Looks good - Quality of build is good, and strong Cons: - Always slow - Very poor customer service - Broken after a software update. Currently back to Archos, after repeatedly contacting their customer service, to be looked at.
Summary: I must start by saying I didn't buy my Archos 101 x from Amazon, but feel so strongly about it that I really wanted to review it. I was really pleased with it at first, although, like other reviewers have mentioned the wi-fi is not good, I had to be about 4 ft max from my router to get a useable signal.
Summary: Ok this tablet gets a bad press, and it does not deserve it. The fact is people see the price tag and screen size(10)and think yes i'll have it.Its only when they compare it to an Ipad or a Samsung of similar size that they start moaning. These are the facts..The Archos titanium tablets in any size are only entry level tablets, and should be treated as such. don't buy one if you plan to create spread sheets, data bases or plan on using it for buisness email.
Summary: I BOUGHT ARCHOS 101 WITH JOY AS IT HAD A SLOT FOR INTERNET DONGLE TO FACILITATE ON THE ROAD INTERNET CAPABILITY, BUT I HAVE BEEN SO DISAPPOINTED I CANNOT GET THE ARCHOS USB STICK TO BUY, NOT EVEN FROM THEIR WEBSITE. IT IS ABSOLUTELY WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY TO BUY ARCHOS PRODUCTS IF THEIR OWN WEBSITE CANNOT HELP WITH THEIR ACCESSORIES. IT OFTEN FREEZES AND NEEDS TO POWER OFF, THEN ON TO GET GOING. RESOLUTION IS ONE OF THE BEST THOUGH. IT MUST BE RATED WITH A NEGATIVE.
Summary: I bought this as I thought it would be ideal as a cheap tablet. I'm now using the replacement for the first one that was returned as faulty. This one although not as bad as the original is still not very good. The battery life is poor, the tablet will freeze daily and need a reset (it doesn't seem to want to reboot if that option is chosen), apps stop working without reason and it's a rare event if I get to use it without having an issue.
Summary: I'm using this tablet for a project with a client who is going to be buying 10,000 android tablets for his project, but it's not going to be this model! The wifi is a joke even after the latest firmware update which should have fixed it. In my lounge, my nexus 4 phone picks up 6 wifi networks in range, this tablet only sees 1!
