Works for Me
18 July 2013
Summary: I uploaded all of my organized music and playlist but the device would not use windows media player list and also just put all my music files into one huge list. Trying to create individual playlist with the device is not very easy at all. In all I am not very happy with the product.
Summary: This was purchased as a gift. The person who received it indicates that it's like most of these electronic tablets with some really good features and a few not so good. He likes it just fine, says it works as described.
Summary: Nice tablet using Wi-Fi. It's a very good size, 4.3 inches which makes it great for portability. It plays videos nicely. Some video files it will not play. The screen size is a very good size for a unit for carrying with you, very portable at 4.3 inches This is a great device that I highly recomend.
Summary: This has been a nice gadget for me. Nothign over the top, but i love it none the less. Music plays well. it doesn't hook to itunes, and it sorts all music automatically. thats a little annoying having all the singles come up in album and artist view, but i ignore it. you have to put playlists in manually. buuuut. the speakers are FANTASTIC. i woudl say 3 times as loud as ipods? screen is bigger, and internet connection is solid.
Summary: I got this device about 8 months ago, so a little late for a review; the second device in a string of 3 android devices. I suspect not many people will be getting this with the Galaxy 4.0 costing about the same. The kickstand on the device was useful; it allowed my player to stand up and not need to be held for movies, which as you can imagine makes one's hand tired.
Summary: I bought this primarily as a MP3 player as I like to play music in the classes I teach, during the lab portions. Bought a 32G micro SD and filled it up, works great. Sound out of the device's speaker is pretty tinny, as can be expected, but is not terrible. I bought some external speakers and haven't had a chance to try them yet as they just arrived at home and I'm on the road.
Summary: If it was a year ago, this Archos 43 should be getting 5 stars for sure, but as now there are quite a few options on the market with good price and features, it makes Archos 43 second best. I had Kindle Fire, but couldn't bear the fact I can't connect a keyboard to it, nor flash drives, microSD cards, cameras and such, not even a microphone for Skype. Archos has all these features.
Summary: After a bit of playing around I really like this tablet. There are a few things that seem a bit weird to get to but not bad. For the money this tablet is well worth the money. It does everything that the more expensive ones do! I was pleasantly surprised at what this thing can do. The addition of an SD card can really expand the use of this tablet. I was really surprised at the quality of the sound. I figured that since the speakers are small it would suck big time.
Summary: I had an ipod until I dropped in a cooler full of water- I waited nearly a year before I decided it needed replacing. I wanted something similar to the ipod touch without the ipod touch price. I had a gift card to amazon so I decided to give an android device a chance. pros: easy and quick set up larger screen than ipod touch price light weight nice screen resistive screen is one of the best i have used downloads apps quick has a built in microphone and sd card slot...
Summary: I bought two of these as gifts for my daughters. Web browsing and other features were nice. The screens are larger than iPod touch, the processer is a bit slower, but with the price lower than the iPod, they fit the bill nicely. The real problem is the app store "appslib" (or something like that). I couldn't get it to work to save my life. There was a well thought out review on Amazon that mentioned downloading the Archtools application.
