Summary: Okay, I can't say this is a "bad" product... but I can only rate it one star. That's not one star as in "awful"... it's one star as in very limited application. No gravometric innards (ie, it doesn't rotate the screen as you flip the device), doesn't access Android Market (goodbye tens of thousands of applications), and it's not upgradable to more recent versions of Android. That puts this into "toy" classification in my book.
New Android 2.1 Eclair makes this a great product!

Summary: I have been looking for an android tablet for my girlfriend who is in nursing school and could use it at the hospitals she does clinicals at and we found a winner. I had some worries since most of the reviews talked about the older 1.5 android installed which doesn't run too many apps. But this one shipped with 2.1 android and it's amazing. It runs video very well. Most of the apps she needed were available a few weren't through their app store.
Summary: I bought the Archos 7HT with 8gb Flash memory in Jan 2011 and promptly returned it. Why? Pros: There's much to love about the Archos 7HT. Size, weight, features all wrapped into a fast interface. The high-def video is superb. The sound when listening to music is excellent, but only if you use headphones. The Aldiko eReader is top of the line and provides access to one of the best epublishers on the market: Feedbooks.
Summary: I bought this for a Christmas present so I just sat down and tried it today...the 30th. I was not happy when I found out that the market app was missing and you are unable to download it. You need this in order to download alot of other apps. I did some research on the internet and I see alot of people have the same problem. Also you need the 2.0 or more operating system in order to download the kindle reader for android.
Summary: I really tried to like this little tablet as I purchased four of them for myself and my children. It had an incomplete and very basic owner manual and customer service was unhelpful and untrained. The most frustrating thing is that if you want to download something, you are not able to download something like "updated firmware" or the "AppsLib" applications from the device itself.
Summary: My husband wanted me to get this instead of a netbook. The touch screen is very poor. It is very slow to get on the internet and difficult to use. The home and menu buttons are in the edges of a poor touchscreen. Not worth the money.
Summary: First, some background: I purchased this tablet as an experiment to see whether I might want to invest in a better one later, or whether I need the power of a regular tablet computer. I'm primarily displaying books that have *lots* of graphics, and scrolling and/or page turns have to be fast. I normally use my netbook for this, but it doesn't open flat, and thus can't sit on a music stand.
Summary: Nice packaging, acceptable build quality (for the price). On usability, a resounding "no". The CPU is acceptably fast, the screen is nice and bright... but SCREEN. Here's the big problem. I had only used capacitive screens until now, and I figured that resistive screens probably got too much of a bad rap... but it's deserved. Not only do you have to press the screen with determination, I found sometimes I had to repeat the press two and three times...
Summary: We were disappointed with the Archos 7. Perhaps it is a generational thing as we are in our sixties. But the screen was not particularly sensitive, the battery seemed to deplete faster than one might expect and, most importantly, we kept losing wireless connection cutting us off from the internet. We returned the Archos 7 to the vendor, along with the accompanying scan disc (never used) that we had purchased, but have received a refund only for the Archos.
