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.
Excerpt: I recently bought the Archos 101 Internet Tablet. I was really excited to test out the product because of its numerous features. It has a full size USB port that allows you to connect a flash drive or portable hard drive or keyboard. Also, the product boasts an HDMI connection which allows you to watch Hi-Def movies on you television. It also has a micro SD slot that is upgradable to thrity two GBs.
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 have had the Archos 101 Internet Tablet for about 2 months now. Originally I just was interested in an ebook reader, but this one has so many more features. I have a 10 month old that I still nurse and we plan on having more children. It's great that I can nurse my baby while checking emails or browsing the web, or reading a book or playing solitaire. When you're spending about four hours a day with a newborn on your lap you need something to keep you awake!
Excerpt: This Achos 101 is the largest tabet in the family of Archoss tablets. It runs on Cortex A8 1 GHz CPU and is equipped with 3D OpenGL ES2.0 display. This high end tablet uses multi-touch capacitive 16:9 10.1 inch touchscreen. Users can play 720p vidoe on it easily. It has also a miniHDMI interface for video output. The speaker quality of this tablet is also very good. It is suprising that the speaker can deliver such sound quality with such a thin form factor.
Summary: We purchased this tablet for my wife's parents who are in their mid-80's and never owned a computer before. It was easy for them to learn, it is easy to use, the screen size is just right, and it has been working flawlessly for the past 8 months. The unit's memory and storage capacity are adequate to store documents and pictures. Adding apps is a breeze. Battery life is as advertised.
Great tablet if you can't, or don't want to, spend a lot for an ipad.

Summary: I bought this tablet three months ago because I wanted something for ebooks, internet and sharing images of my products. To give you a fair review of this product I have broken it down into several sections that I feel are important for others to take into consideration before making a purchase. Apps Store: In order to access the Archos Appslib (pre-installed) you must create an account and tether your Paypal account to it.
Summary: For a 10.1" tablet, it's thinner and lighter than a similarly sized IPad. The battery life is about the same and the 1ghz processor does keep up with others in its class. The capacitive touch screen is sensitive, the screen is bright (warning: does NOT have a WIDE viewing angle), and the speakers are really good for something this size.
Summary: I got this last week. So far, no problems with the device as far as actually working. There is a little lag at times after pressing an icon, but not much. It is very fast, especially since I haven't loaded it up with useless junk. I'm not a gamer, and watching movies on something like this seems kind of pointless since I have a 55" 3D Tv. As for a book-reader, NO thanks. I want books that I can pass along, and don't depend on batteries.
