Excerpt: If I were ever looking for a highly inexpensive touchscreen operated computer I would look for the Archos 101. Let’s start by looking at the specs of the tablet; first of all it has a 10.1 inch multi touch screen, but only two fingers are allowed. Now the Processor being used in this tablet is nothing special it’s an ARM Cortex V8 single core 1ghz Central processing unit; the graphics accelerator isn’t the greatest it uses open GL’s 3d 2.0 shader system.
Summary: anyone who is looking to purchase a archos tablet used. I would recommend to stay away and purchase another brand. if you research online these tablets have lots of issues with charging, and customer service is ridiculous. like I said do your research. it seems like a lot of people are selling there problem units used and are trying to pass on the problems to someone else.
Summary: Couldn't beat the low price when I bought it. Can't find a case that fits the odd shape, but it is a great little tablet, have to do some minor tweaks to it to make it play Netflix but there are simple instructions on Youtube that can help you. Since I got my Kindle Fire HD, I don't really use it anymore but it is a nice tablet. I used to take it to work on night shift and watch movies when I wasn't busy.
Summary: The adage of "Buyer Beware" and "You Get What You Pay For" certainly fits here. With NO Google Play Store app ability, you're severly restricted as to the apps you can install (most apps aren't compatable) and after a short time I've found that my Archos 101 is somewhat selective even connecting to wifi. All in all, I'm only able to do about a quarter of the things with this as I am with other tablets I've owned. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT!
Summary: Maybe this review does not reflect the whole rating. That's what I got. Archos looked good (screen had some slide marks) but when I did the WiFi connection setup could not enter the password because 0 and 9 wouldn't work. I did various touch screen calibrations but didn't work after that. Sent it back and waiting for refund. I bought another one at ebay.
Archos 101- Great Product with a few minor problems
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This product is very good. I had a few problems with the firmware update, but it was right after Christmas. Everything worked well after that. The OS is very stable. The only complaint is that the kickstand well get very loose after a while. Overall this is a great product, it is worth buying.
Excerpt: We had wanted a way for my wife to be able to check email and do some web browsing while I was working from home and taking up the office. An internet tablet seemed to be the best way to do that. We got the archos 101, and were pleasantly surprised how easy it was to use. The lack of built in access to the android market was annoying at first, but easy enough to work around. The video quality is awesome on it. Web browsing is a snap.
