"its an "OK" product"
28 August 2011
Pros: + easy to operate. + good battery life. + small but big. + cheap. + it has USB connections and micro SD card slot. + good video and audio player.
Cons: - the touch screen is not responsive & not smooth. - connection via USB between tablet and computer is not charging the battery. - a bit slow when you open application or folder. - yes, the front camera is horrible. - start up need sometime.
Pros: Does what you need it to do. Good battery life. BIG screen. Good touch Screen. Runs Android 2.2 but IMO the OS is a bit apart from the tablet. Price (at the time). Decent update intervals. Easy RMA when you need it.
Cons: A bit sluggish. Sometimes more sometimes less - each firmware update has it's own effect. Only HDMI video out (I'm still in the dark ages lol). No buttons - sometimes I'd rather NOT have to touch the screen. Archos abandonment issues - they have a tende
Pros: Big Screen Great connectivity/sharing Good UI/OS Good sound
Cons: Really really really poorly built. Perhaps the worst built product I have ever come across. If you say you have had luck with Archos before then you have not tried the 101. It is **** poor construction.
Excerpt: I love the design of this tablet, it's screen is a nice size (it's also capacitive) and it's very light and easy to hold. Although it doesn't have 3G connectivity, it does have WIFI, which means you can buy MIFI and use it anywhere, not just at WIFI hotspots. I use mine as an e-reader, I use the free Sipdroid app to make phone calls via VOIP (I already had a paid VOIP service before I bought this tablet), I've got Quick Office installed and easily work on MS documents...
Summary: Needs to be used carefully otherwise you may get frustrated - touch type not great - spontaneously changes orientation or delay in change - feels lightweight and screen is a nice size - no FLASH SUPPORT!!!
Pros: Great price point, Large Screen, Lightweight
Summary: I purchased this tablet because I wanted an alternative to the Ipad do to price and lack of external features. The Archos 101 does not lack in external feature or price however, I could not get over the lack of support for the android market.
Summary: I was really wanting this to work for me so that I would have a 'Tweener to do my laptop work when away from home. After playing with it for a day, I found it too much of a hassle to get it set up with the beloved Apps Marketplace. When clicking on the link to buy Documents to Go, the web page that comes up says 'ERROR'. If I had spent some time looking for my DTG file on the Droid X, I would have been able to DL it from there.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Durable Construction, Fast, Good Battery Life, Great Video, Kick Stand is adjustable, Large Screen, Lightweight, Very Portable
Cons: Apps Market DL needed, Crashes/Freezes, Limited Apps, NO APPS MARKET, No Flash 10, Poor Software Bundle, Reset not smooth, ViewRead Office Only
