a tablet newbie buys a archos 43 16GB IT

Steve Johnson, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: It seems to have some software glitches and arrived with no charging/data cable, so I finally had to buy one in a store. The seller responded appropriately and pleasantly, though the tablet sat around, unusable, for a couple of weeks.

Not touchy Enough

Aaron Melfi, Amazon

  • Summary: Got this awhile back just to have. It did good for the time, and would recommend it. The screen did get really funky once it got humid out, failing to register touches or doing it in the wrong spot.

  • Summary: I got mine for $7.25 plus $4.99 shipping so even though my "new" archos came in an opened, smelly box with post-its with scribbled notes from its first owner... it works which for my history of archos devices (6 ordered 4 returned) is great for my wants, a REAL pocket sized device to read ebooks; it...

bit like having a wife, great when you get it but can get annoying and boring over time

  • Excerpt: this tablet was good when i got it but has since after quite a bit of use becoming obsolete in my hands as i'm finding many apps do not want to run very well and has stopped being able to play youtube videos any more.
  • Pros: nice media interface, 720p camcorder, kickstand, battery life, HDMI output
  • Cons: touchscreen can get very irritating, no digital zoom, no multitouch, no android market / google play, can be rather slow

Rather cheap hardware

  • Summary: Touch panel condition is not so good and insensitive to touch. After a year of usage of the tablet, touch panel came to mulfunction. I think touch panel is the weak point of this tablet.

Back in 2010...

  • Summary: ...this was a decent device. ATM today, here and now I'd easily go for a Samsung 4.0 or 5.0(more features, better stock firmware and overall build quality) over this puppy any day of the week.

It's alright, but there are better and cheaper options

Corey Sarnia, Amazon
16 June 2012
  • Summary: I've had this product for almost exactly a year now. The main reason I got it was for the bluetooth tethering support, which worked amazingly well. I had a $35 phone plan with unlimited data on a dumbphone and could tether as much as I wanted with no penalty. Pros: - Great media player.

  • Summary: I thought I had found the perfect little tablet; as it turns out I almost did. The 43 grows on you but beware, it has some mysterious faults that will make depending on it a crap shoot.

The first mistake I made with a purchase

Alexander K., Newegg
23 December 2011
  • Summary: First off, I'll have you know I sadly didn't buy this product with a warranty or from newegg, which if you must buy this product, I strongly reccomend you do. I take great pride in treating electronics I own with great care. I figured seeing other reviews were just people who mistreated the device.
  • Pros: 4.3 inch screen does look good Camera looks great in good lighting Kickstand is useful
  • Cons: Shoddy construction (See review below) HDMI out was very laggy on my TV, basically pointless. Back is a bigger scuff magnet than Ipod Touch Resistive screen that scratches very easily Due to running out of space in the other thoughts section, I'd just like to say that the standard software with t...
