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: The tablet itself is quite robust and nicely made, but the 256mb doesn't allow you to use the tablet to its true potential. You can't have many apps open at the same time, you have trouble installing separate launchers, and it doesn't appear to release the memory that gets allocated when an...
Summary: Slow, Clunky, Fragile. It ran apps well enough for what I needed it for, but it was very thick and very fragile. the LCD soon broke and the insurance wouldn't replace it but gave me my money back instead (probably a good thing).
Summary: I bought this for my grandson who likes to play games on the tablet. Now I am not an expert but I found this slow in terms of responsiveness and struggled to find games for my grandson. I wish I'd paid a bit more and got something better. This was cheap and I got what I paid for.
Summary: Unfortunately Skype cannot be used on this Tablet. When I read the product description it appeared to have been ok for Skype too. I have sent an e-mail to Archos customer support but have not yet received a reply. I am disappointed with it as I wanted to download Skype on this Tablet.
Summary: Got this product as a Christmas present and was pleased with the potential this tablet had. One week into ownership and things started to go wrong. The apps store is poor and continually failed to download properly causing the tablet to reset and started the startup wizard which constantly looped.
Summary: This is a great tablet (I have the 250gb version), with lots of very good features that I enjoyed using for 6 weeks until it stopped switching on... Archos replaced it with a brand new one-no problems with service apart from the cost of postage to return the faulty one (£9).

Summary: Hi There, Having gone through the mill on a very high spec but low cost Chinese import which didn't work correctly and took two months to sort out I decided on a reputable brand [Archos] from Avides the supplier on Amazon. Actually paid extra £££ to get it delivered next day.
