Excerpt: Have used better tablets like the Ipad but very good the battery seems to last forever. Could be faster. very lightweight compared to some tablets. this tablet is very light weight it is vertical not upright has fallen off my bed once without any damage.

Excerpt: Let's start of that I am a big fan of Archos products. This is great because it allows you to connect to other devices and it also allows you to connect to flash drives so that you can work on your documents portably.
Excerpt: this tablet is really good for the price Wish the battery would stay charged longer , but when i'm around a plug i just plug it in .. seems to load fast enough for me and my books load fast on it weight is very good , light enough to be convient but havy enough to be sturdy love the amount of apps it has in google play ,i have found many that i enjoy using .and all for free so far the design is good just one thing would make it better .
An excellent tablet for an average tablet user, cheap and of great quality.

Summary: This is a tablet I owned before and purchased again just recently. It might sound a little odd, because now there is Android 4.0 available in other tablets, while this goes up to 2.4 I think. But let me just explain. It is a tablet that lacks nothing in quality. I can watch HD videos, listen to MP3s, browse the internet, read books (very useful to me), in other words, things that the average user wants to do with a tablet. I still got a laptop for more demanding tasks.
Great tablet for kids, needs parental block for ordering over internet.

Summary: Bought this tablet used for grand kids. Works perfect they just love having their own tablet to play games on. excellent battery life last all day.Very rugged even though light weight.Only thing missing on this older tablet is a security block option to prevent ordering over internet. So I keep internet turned off most of the time.
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. Having used iPhone 3GS and Nexus One Android 2.1/2.2, I have been thinking of any OS tablet style device. 7" is excellent for my requirement. While searching I stumbled on Archos 70/101 line and I was amazed they had a 250 GB hard disk model!
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. Also, getting the complete google market in it is no mistery, all you have to do is install the arctools app. Other than that, i can say the hardware is a lot better than you would expect.
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. This is nice as i rather have a hard drive really in my device even though it may take up more power than a SSD.
