25 July 2014
  • Excerpt: After my graduation my sister’s husband gave me an Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet. It’s touch-screen and you don’t need a stylus to manipulate it since it’s well calibrated.

Indispensible for Years

Michael W., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Pros: I've had it since 2010 and it just now died on me. It worked for everything I used it for (Music and Bathroom Reading). It is a rather hardy product, as I have dropped it on hard surfaces many times.
  • Cons: The file management wasn't quite as nice as the last generation. The screen scratched rather easily. It could have some (non-fatal) software quirks.

Horrible buy for me

T. K. Cameron "Lookin 4 the Goods", Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: This review is a little dated but I truly became disappointed in this product. This Arco worked great for about 30 days after that the screen kept freezing. It stop recording my shows and I just gave up on this product. A friend of mines has the 7 inch and his works fine.

Worthless Piece of Shazbot

Scott, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: It won't play Youtube because shortly after it was released, Youtube switched to a different format that the Archos company didn't plan on updating their operating system or firmware to be able to handle. Hardly any video works on it and the Apps often timeout/close for no reason.

Cannot Recommend

Kyle Strayer, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: The first few months I had my Archos i loved it, i thought it was the most useful tool i could have, but having it for a few years has made me realize that it's not quite as useful as i'd originally thought.
