Archos 101 XS

CNET

  • Summary: While the Archos 101 XS's keyboard dock makes writing long documents somewhat easier, its cheap build quality, unpleasant screen and various other issues make it too expensive for what is being offered.
  • Cons: Terrible screen; keyboard dock feels very cheap and flimsy; magnets on dock don't feel secure; Can't listen to audio on headphones if they have a built-in microphone.

Archos 101 XS review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Let's just call it like it is: Archos doesn't have a history of making good tablets. I have fond memories of my Jukebox MP3 player from years ago, but more recently the company's produced a slew of tablets that just didn't measure up. So when I first sat down with Craig TerBlanche, Director of Marketing at Archos, we immediately got to the point.
  • Pros: Good-looking design, Coverboard is handy, and included, Price is right
  • Cons: Significant build quality issues, Gets really dirty and scuffed, Strange software and performance quirks

  • Summary: We love what Archos was trying to do with the Archos 101 XS. It’s a huge leap forward for a company otherwise known for cheap efforts rather than affordable ones. But the keyboard’s a tad too small to be helpful, and it’s still lacking the build and screen quality of Asus’ much cheaper Google Nexus 7 slate.

Archos 101 XS review: a tablet that puts the keyboard center stage

Engadget
22 August 2012
  • Summary: Sure, we docked the Archos 101 XS for a few key issues -- the uncomfortable keyboard being the primary one -- but you know us: we only gripe because we love. The fact is we got a bit starry-eyed when we first met this tablet. The Coverboard design is smart, even if the plastic feels cheap, and we can't give Archos enough kudos for taking the keyboard beyond accessory status to an important part of the device.
  • Pros: Innovative design, Keyboard included at $400
  • Cons: Cramped keyboard, Short battery life, Cheap build quality

Archos 101 XS

LAPTOP Magazine
22 August 2012
  • Summary: At $399, it's nice that Archos is essentially adding a keyboard for the same price as a 10-inch Android tablet alone. This device also offers good performance and a sleeker design than previous Archos tablets. However, this slate has some issues that prevent it from earning a higher rating, including the poorly placed webcam and tinny speaker. Plus, propping the slate on the keyboard is awkward.
  • Pros: Good overall performance, Display has wide viewing angles, Keyboard included, HDMI and microSD ports
  • Cons: Awkward docking mechanism, Poorly placed webcam, Tinny audio, Cramped keyboard layout

Archos 101 XS

Techzine
24 April 2013
  • Conclusion: De Archos 101 XS is een hybride tablet die precies op de lijn is gaan zitten van prijs en kwaliteit. Voor de lage prijs, op het moment 264 euro, krijg je prestaties die alleen door de prijs worden gerechtvaardigd. De kracht van de tablet is het design, waarbij magneten gebruikt zijn om het toetsenbord en scherm te koppelen. Op die manier is het scherm bedekt tegen beschadiging door het Coverboard-accessoire en is het allesbehalve een doorn in het oog.
  • Pros: Lage prijs;, Origineel ontwerp;, Toetsenbord inbegrepen;, Grafisch sterk;
  • Cons: Gebrekkige bouwkwaliteit;, Slecht geluid;, Matige accu;

Review: Archos 101 XS met Coverboard keyboard

tabletsmagazine.nl
21 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Aan het eind van een review moet ik altijd met een conclusie komen en bij het schrijven van zo’n conclusie moet ik dan ook altijd de prijs meewegen van de tablet. De Archos 101 G10 XS is te koop voor een prijs vanaf 350 euro en daar krijg je dan meteen een hardware toetsenbord bij. Dat is dus geen gekke deal op papier.
  • Pros: Aantrekkelijke prijs, Inclusief fysiek toetsenbord, Veel aansluitingsmogelijkheden
  • Cons: Matige bouwkwaliteit, Matig toetsenbord (Coverboard), Android 4.0 ICS

Archos Android ICS tablet met innovatieve toetsenbordcover

DiskIdee.nl
16 October 2012
  • Summary: Hoewel je enkele compromissen moet sluiten (zoals het ontbreken van een camera en een lichtsensor) vinden we de Archos 10.1 XS toch een goede Android-tablet. Voor relatief weinig geld koop je een tablet die de nieuwste versie van Android zal draaien en die op grafische gebied goed presteert. De pure processor- en geheugenprestaties zijn niet op hetzelfde niveau als die van andere (duurdere) Android-tablets.
