Great!

Golf A., Newegg
2 April 2011
  • Pros: Other than a tempermental touch screen, this is a great tablet for the money. Keep playing with screen calibration and it will get better. On my Archos 5 it worked much better after I put an antiglare screen protector on it. For the best experience, updgrade to Android Froyo 2.2 here: http://www....
  • Cons: tempermental touchscreen, but knew that going in.

Nice

Robbin N., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought this instead of a nook color already rooted it and put on a different firmware that gives me access to Android Marketplace. I have been able to map network drives and copy material over the network. Android VNC into windows hosts works well,
  • Pros: Refurb units are appearing of v1 for a lot less than the v2 ones. If all you want is an ereader, with video/mp3 playback and the occasional bit of browsing/email then this device is hard to beat. v1 only has android 1.5 available, if you really want flash and angry birds etc then you best get the...
  • Cons: Didn't come with a case, or a USB host cable. Resistive screen can be a bit of a pain but a stylus fixes that.

Good for the price

Michael G., Newegg

  • Summary: Took this on my trip to Vegas. Used it to look up directions and show times as well as watch movies while waiting at the airport and on the flight or waiting in line. Very easy for two people to see a movie on it.
  • Pros: It's big, a nice 7 inches which is great for watching movies and also a plus if you have big fingers when using the touch screen. It's cheap for a 7inch android tablet. The touch screen is pretty good with the updated firmware (greatly improved over shipping firmware). You can stream video and mu...
  • Cons: Only andriod 1.5 (which means no flash and alot less apps). Struggles with some video encoding more than others so the smoothness of playback will depend on how the video is encoded. The speakers could be a little louder. Battery life could be better especially if you try to increase the brightne...

Awesome Tablet for the money

Naeem Ali "Nali007", Amazon

  • Summary: All I really wanted was a great video player I can take along, and this one is amazing... Throw any format and it plays perfectly.. But what I got was a great device where I can browse the internet, read books with the included app, play mp3 , write notes.

Awsome Toy

Joshua H., Newegg
3 August 2010
  • Summary: As I noted in the cons this thing needs the OS updated right off. Don't bother using 1.6. Once you update the OS you can see hidden SSID broadcast, fixes tons of bugs, Add open GL 2.0 support and slightly better flash support.
  • Pros: Very nice PMP. This thing plays nearly everything w/o any problems. Great Device for checking Emails on the fly, Surfing the web, games, and even use it to make Skype calls.* Last but not least the only reason I gave this 5 stars Value. This thing has the best bang for the buck that I've found so...
  • Cons: *The OS shipped on the device is total junk Update it right off the bat. Even with the OS updated Flash playback is meh. Archos Charges for some features on the device. The Screen isn't as responsive as other touch screen devices out there. Archos Support isn't the best.

Loving this thing

Konstantinos I., Newegg
3 August 2010
  • Summary: I've been using this for the last two weeks on a daily basis and I just love it. I don't understand why there are so many whiners out there complaining about this device and making it seem like it is plagued by tons of problems.
  • Pros: Nice display with plenty of built-in memory. Nice sounding speakers. The kickstand is a nice touch. Not the fastest Android tablet I've seen but very acceptable given the price. Touch-screen is not as bad as people make it out to be. Works great as an e-book reader or as a simple web device to br...
  • Cons: I really can't name too many. The main thing that sticks out is the placement of the charger port. In the dark it's hard to tell the difference between the charger port and the headphone port since they are right next to each other, and since the charger jack fits in the headphone port, you may j...

Nice unit

Ryan B., Newegg
25 July 2010
  • Summary: Another great Archos product.
  • Pros: Runs Android and there are a yon of apps. Screen is amazingly bright. Sound is decent bur bot very loud, Intuitive interface. Does most everything an I pad can do at a fraction of the cost. Fast responsiveness.
  • Cons: Hard drive size. But the expansion makes up for it. They have a similar model with 160gb but cost is of course higher. Supplied headphones could be nicer but stalk headphones aren't often great.

Why spend $150-$200 for a 1 trick ebook reader or a $400 netbook when you can get this?

  • Summary: I purchased a wifi nook when the price dropped to $150. While I waited for it, I found the Archos 7 home tablet. I returned the nook after playing with it for 15 minutes and ordered the Archos 7.

Fantastic value

ohshenandoah "lost in a good book", Amazon
11 June 2010
  • Summary: The Archos 7 Home Tablet is an entry-level product, and it offers fantastic value for the price. A gadget snob may feel * the RAM or flash memory is inadequate. Hey! This thing multitasks!! Take that, iPad! And micro SD is so cheap! * the selection of Apps is limited by the hardware.
