Excerpt: Its not very good. The screen feels like it will cave in. Apps constantly crash. Very old android. The screen feels like a thin coat of plastic so its flimsy. The back and sides are a nice metal and it has a camera but other than that, its not very good.
Summary: I really wanted to like this product. It had everything I wanted and was very affordable. However, the wifi function was very spotty-basically unusable. Other functions work OK, but the wifi is the whole purpose of an "internet tablet.
Summary: We bought this is June 2013 for my daughters birthday. She has taken excellent care of it.... it was kept in a case and never handled roughly. In fact she TREASURED this. It was great WHILE IT LASTED.... now it is December of 2013 and it will no longer turn on.
Summary: I bought this in October to use as a portable mp3 player with some extended capabilities. Just yesterday, I found it in my bag with three cracks running across the screen.

Summary: I am a fan of Archos, have been so for a few years now. This tablet has now turned me away. I have had this for about 6 months now and wanted to get good use of it before reviewing it. Don't waste your money... instead purchase a Samsung Galaxy 5.0!!!
Pros: Nice size Android SD Card slot Kickstand is nice
Cons: Horrible build quality(clicks when pressing screen), Resistive touch screen, VERY SLOW BOOT, glitchy, screen scratches easily, hard to turn on from sleep mode, apps force close a lot, camera in a bad place, no direct access to android market(can be installed though)
Summary: It worked great the first couple weeks I had it. To be honest, it's kind of a piece of crap. If you type a lot, do NOT buy anything with resistive screen. It's terrible. The sound is pretty good, but the headphones that came with it suck, and the appslib instead of android market is definitely a...
