Nice Tablet, but I like my Kindle Fire HD more.
9 December 2013
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: Es rapido, los videos excelente, la calidad fotografica y video es pesima, mucha distorsion, la navegacion rapida, el tamano rectangular es algo tedioso, el peso es mucho que llega a rendir la mano, duracion de la bateria es de 9 a 10 horas en juegos constante. no he tenido la ocasionde probar el bluetooh. Las aplicaciones se ejecutan rapido. En si para entretenimiento de mis hijos es adecuado.
Summary: I have only had this tablet a short time but so far I am very pleased. The video is amazing. It is easy to use and I am glad that I purchased the larger 10 in. size. I would reccomend this to anyone wanting to buy a tablet but doesn't want to spend the money for an ipad.
Summary: good value for the amount i paid. it has some limitations but is good for web surfing and email. there are a lot of free apps too. if you don't wamt to spend hundreds on an ipad this will get you by very well.
Not as fast as top of the line tablets, but this one will get you there!

Summary: Bought this as a Christmas gift for someone who wanted an iPad, and was a little worried they wouldn't receive it as well as an iPad. The screen was clear and bright, it wasn't heavy after holding it for a bit, and it charged quickly enough. The manuals were a bit small, and were hard to read, but for kids today, the manual is the last thing they want to read.
Summary: This is a great wi-fi only tablet with good options and features. My number one priority was to find a tablet that was being supported and improved by the manufacturer. Archos was the only manufacturer with a unit under $300 that I could find that regularly updated their firmware and updated the version of Android on the tablet. I love that I can plug in my flash drive and move files from or to the tablet directly without using a pc.
Pros: Manufacturer Support - 14 firmware updates since initial release, including Android 2.1 to 2.2. Customer support is responsive and knowledgeable. Battery Life - is good in most cases...some games will drain it faster Size - Perfect for landscape use, light weight Accessory Ports - USB, micro USB, mini HDMI, microSD, earphone Screen - good brightness Sturdy kick-stand Power Adaptor - has support for a few different electrical interfaces including US and European.
Cons: WiFi - When you setup a connection, make sure that you check the Powersave Disabled box, otherwise it will keep turning off your connection (which gave me problems syncing up arctools.) Android Marketplace not installed - You have to install this yourself using ArcTools from the Archos Apps Lib (create a user account on archos to use the Apps Lib). See note above about wi-fi connection Brightness - If you haven't updated to the latest firmware, there are 3 screen brig...
