Archos 101 G9 Android tablet – the new champion in performance and storage space – user review
4 July 2011
Conclusion: Thanks to all of these features, I think the 101 G9 will also be a great purchase for those who want to be able to work on the go and keep all their data always with them, especially when the price will be about $400 – that’s cheaper than the lower-specced iPad 2!
Summary: The Archos 101 tablet's price is right and the screen is ample, but the experience is outdated and performance is sluggish.
Pros: The Archos 101 is one of few Android 2.2 tablets with a large 10.1-inch screen. Extras such as a front-facing camera, Mini-HDMI output, USB host and sync ports, and microSD memory expansion are impressive considering the tablet's low price.
Cons: Charging requires wall adapter, screen quality and responsiveness are mediocre; onscreen keyboard is awkward; not fully compatible with Adobe Flash; lacks support for Android Market and Google Mobile apps, such as Maps, Navigation, Contacts, and Calendar.
Summary: Bargain tablet? In addition to a plethora of tablets in various sizes, Archos also offers a model in the popular 10" format with the 101. A light and slim case is just as attractive as the HDMI and USB 2.0 equipment features. We looked into what one can really expect at a current price of 280.
Pros: light and slim, reasonably priced, HDMI, USB 2.0 + mini USB, long battery runtimes, silent operation, hardly noticeable warming of the case, Android 2.2, very small and light power pack, Very light, very reasonably-priced, well equipped and a very usable range of functions.
Cons: Poor case stability, Very angle-dependent display with only adequate brightness and limited contrast, no access to Google's Android Marketplace..., ...and thus marginal app-availability, low rated 8 GB flash memory, no UMTS available
Summary: Among 10-inch Android tablets, the Archos 101 is the slimmest, most solid, and, at $299 ($349 for the 16GB version), the best value thus far. However, that doesn't mean we don't have reservations. For such a large screen, the viewing angles are too narrow.
Conclusion: The Archos 101 is a reasonable tablet for its price. It's thin and light with good connectivity but it doesn't rival other tablets in performance. If you're after a cheap device for casual web browsing and media viewing then the 101 is a good option. µ
Pros: Inexpensive, decent screen size, a kick stand, thin and light, good connectivity.
Cons: Poor perfomance, unresponsive capacitive touchscreen, display pixilation, no rear camera, only 8GB or 16GB storage., VGA webcam.
