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.
Summary: I have been using the Archos 70 for some time now and this is my first Archos device and it is my first android device that I have owned. it is a cheaper version when we got it of the different android tablets and we where able to get it with a small hard drive in it of 250 GB.
Summary: Purchased an Archos 70 last Christmas as a family gift. Why? Price mainly, but I already had a 7" Samsung Tab from work and loved the portability of that screen size. As it turned out, what a great purchase decision.
Summary: I had been researching for a low cost tablet for quite a while and after much consideration decided to go in for Archos 70 250GB. I have always felt that a 7 inch tablet would be more handy and easier to manage than a larger one. The thought of having a tablet with so much space was really exciting.
Summary: As other reviewers have noted, the Archos 70 is a very functional Android tablet, but it takes some effort on the part of the user to get it working to its full potential. For those that are familiar with methods for troubleshooting operating systems, who enjoy tinkering with digital devices, and...

Summary: I've had this tablet for a couple of weeks now, and in part thanks to the great reviews here at Amazon, I was well prepared when I got it and it's lived up very well to my expectations. I will try to hit on various points I've seen across some forums and give my opinion on them: * Build quality.
It's better than many "professional' reviews indicate

Summary: Obviously most "professional" and consumer reviews of this tablet are favorable, which led me to buy the thing in the first place. I'm not as nitpicky as some, but this IT does everything I expect it to do as a tablet-after a few tweaks like updating the firmware, downloading the Android Market and...

Summary: I am writing this review because I don't want future Archos 70 owners to experience what I went through. I have had it for a week now and have contemplated throwing it down a deep ravine. Finally, thank God, I was able to get it to work. Here's how: 1.
Summary: I have been very happy with the product. The biggest reason I chose this tablet over many others was the drive size at 250gb. I now can carry every single song in my collection with me in the car and not worry about someone sitting on CDs. The interface is convenient and easy to understand.
