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.
Summary: I really like it for what it is. I did not buy it to replace my cellphone, computer, pda, or what have you. I bought it to display pictures and videos, to store a book or two and to have access to the internet while I wait for my wife to get off of work. For all of these things it is great.
Summary: At $199 this is a great unit to tide you over until the marketplace has settled down a bit. With tons of new tablets being introduced it seems a bit risky to spend $500 knowing that whatever you buy will be out of date almost immediately; the Archos 7 works well enough and is inexpensive enough that...
Summary: Considering that the Archos 7 costs less than half of what an iPad costs, this tablet is a great value. It surfs the web, grabs your email, has apps and can do Flash. The built-in Wi-Fi is easy to configure and can pick up signal easily. The screen is bright...very bright..
Summary: I got this tablet a few days ago. I knew what I was getting into because I had read the early reviews of this product. I got this mostly for using it on the go when I want to use the internet. I wasn't disappointed until I tried Youtube and Facebook via the included web browser.

Summary: The Archos 7 Home Tablet is a decent surfing device if you're looking for something with a larger screen but don't want to spend a lot of money. I have an iPod Touch and was looking for something larger for surfing. This device is by no means an iPad and I knew that going in.
Summary: Got mine last night from Amazon (Amazon Prime rocks!), pretty happy so far. I knew I would have to manually install apps that aren't in the Archos AppsLib application, since Google doesn't support this through the Android Market.
Summary: Well done to amazon and it's partners....great product delivered very quickly and over the weekend...A+++++...this works wonders as a movie player decoding h264 and mkv files easily...battery life is very good too...
Summary: I was very excited to receive this item but had a problem with it and had to return it. The company couldn't have been more helpful on returning the item. I would definitely look for this company again.
Summary: So far seems to work well. Easy to use for surfing and loading pictures. Could not get it to handle a hotmail account which was disappointing as the main reason for purchase was to give my wife a simple way of retrieving emails; got round the problem by setting up a gmail account (which is handled...
