Summary: Each time I called in I spoke to 'managers" who said that my NEW tablet of less than 2mos would not be replaced with another new tab. ONLY rebuilt tab would be sent to me. This was a Christmas gift from my children and they sadly waisted their $$.
Cons: Have had 5 replaced by the Archos Company . My 1st one I had less than 2mos. Called CS, tablet wouldn't charge my new Archos was replaced with a rebuilt one , 2nd tab over heated and the face cracked, 3rd tab did the same as tab #2, 4th tab wouldn't link up w/my wireless, 5th tab is doing the sam...
Summary: Well, I've purchased the device in October 2011 via Amazon, and it should work as a mp3 player, directly connected to my stereo receiver (over the years, I ripped more than 900 CD's, in total > 45 GB). Internet, apps, E-Mails, Videos - I don't care.
Summary: I basically just wanted a big version of an ipod that could hold alot of GB and was a touch screen. This was the best thing i could find and it seems alright. I may go crazy if i had to use it as a tablet but seems to work with just music. It sometimes freezes and also seems to not turn on.
Summary: I bought this exact tablet a few years ago. It doesn't play videos online and you can't view certain websites as it says your adobe player is too old. When you try to install a current one, it fails every time. I have downloaded the latest software updates but nothing has helped with this problem.
Summary: This was purchased for my husband, a Soldier who is set to deploy on 2 weeks so he could skype with the kids and keep in contact when he has a chance. We recieved the Tablet today, and it wont work! Wont charge, wont turn on. We called amazon who put us through to the seller.
Summary: Before I start I want to make this abundantly clear for non-tech savvy people out there due to the fact that this tablet uses an HDD for it's main storage the load times on some items may be a few seconds longer than with your traditional SSD based tablet.
Summary: Archos 70 250GB is an awesome device with known limitations. I have been searching for a large capacity mp3 style player. I have tried iPod Classic, too small screen for my taste. iPhone 32GB is small for my music/video collection.
Really good at this price point, specially media usage

Summary: First of all, i'm not gonna repeat what most people already wrote about the firmware. It's stuck on Android Froyo 2.2 and that's it, problably because of the not so good 256 RAM. Which is kinda bad, but it's not the end of the world.
Cons: I bought it last year and the usb metal plug inside the device got lose and fell inside the device, I sent it for repair and was sent back to me without being fixed. It is very disappointing. I regret spending my money and not being able to use it, is sitting in the closet.
