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.
Summary: I bought this tablet as a graduation gift for my wife. One of the first things I noted was the need to modify. I essentially rooted the tabled to make it properly sync with the tablet and the phone android markets. The apps and market available for it as it came were quite limited. However, once I did this, it has been great. My wife loves it. Works great with Netflix, youtube, flash items, great app availability.
For the price its Great!! Archos is a very good Tablet maker.

Summary: PLEASE LOOK at all the reviews before you decide!! I have had my Archos 101 for a while now and I think its great for the money!! Yes I could spend $400 to $600 and get a better one; But this guy works great for all the apps and games I have tried. And yes at times it can be a little laggey, but again look at its price. The battery life is GREAT!!!!!!!!! (like 8 to 10 hours of use) Can use all day and will still have 50% charge at night.
Summary: Good luck finding a tablet in the market that support external usb flash drive, micro sd card, micro usb ports, flash,nd full, ,720 hdmi video output. I absolutly love it, had it for about a week now, so far no regret, the wifi was easy to set up, but the cellphone tetgering was extremely difficult. Not all phones are supported.
Summary: This tablet was purchased for my daughter. We really enjoy using the tablet. It is easy to use and my daughter loves it! This was a very good purchase if you are on a budget and want some of the benefits of using a high end tablet. Great for viewing documents, playing games, checking email, various types of IM, watching movies, and or playing videos. We are really happy with this purchase.
