Summary: Archos' website claims "Cameras, USB keys and USB hard drives are easily accessible with the ARCHOS 70 internet tablet." This is false. First of all you need to find the CORRECT cable converter and then your attached device needs to be powered. None of my USB thumb drives worked and neither did my Canon 40D camera (the primary reason for getting this tablet) or my POWERED external hard drives.
Summary: Got this item after researching several similar products and eBook Readers. The description and specs was about the best I read so I decided to purchase it. I was disappointed with the WiFi that would show "Error" periodically when powering on the unit . Youtube Mobile picture quality is about the worst I've seen and there is no audio. Checking my email on "@live" and "@yahoo" was a challenge also.
Summary: i bought the unit after looking at archos website showing the user going to a movie site paying for the movie and downloading my unit would not do this i spoke to archos tech support they stated they were not licensed with th software companies and that is why it would not stream viedos directly to the unit as shown in thier demonstration so i sent it back
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. The screen, despite being calibrated, continued to move about and was very irritating and even though it was recalibrated the problem continued.
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). My replacement wouldn't even switch on once. I charged it for more than 24 hours, reset it as per Archos technical advice but to no effect. That one went back too.
