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.
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...

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.
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

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...
