Initially was very impressed, but had issues

rpv, Amazon
19 February 2012
  • 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

Vini, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • 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.

Bought for my mom

Christopher B., Newegg

  • Summary: Get a new appstore app and you're good to go.
  • Pros: I bought it as a christmas gift for my mother, and she loves it. It works like a charm and was relatively cheap.
  • Cons: I am a bit disappointed in the apps preloaded, the provided app to access the android market didn't work, which meant I had to get her a different appstore.

decent

Jeremy G., Newegg
15 October 2011
  • Summary: More of a toy than a computer I will use it like an eReader It looks like a big cell phone I probably won't use it that much, but time will tell If you want a tablet computer the Acer Iconia W500 is a bargain
  • Pros: *Flat and light - fits in my jeans back pocket *no Objective C running on this thing
  • Cons: *Had to install ArcTools to get the Android market working (no rooting necessary) - Archos market was not legitimate for me *No Hulu support as of yet, and its not really worth my time to hack it *Its the outdated Android *HDMI initial connection was flaky during the short time I tried it out, bu...

Thin, Light and Worth Every Penny

Philip Rogers, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • 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.

Archos 70 250GB Internet Tablet

abhishan, Amazon
14 September 2011
  • 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.

WYSIWYG

Andy S., Newegg
2 September 2011
  • Summary: I have been very happy with this product - alot of good feedback on forum.archosfans.com Would I but this again? Yes - if it was 2010 again. Currently there are too many descent HoneyComb tablets (though they are ~ double this price).
  • Pros: Affordable and functional. It does everything that I ask it to do - including entertaining a 2 year old while he watches movies of himself. The battery life is good as long as you do not leave the screen on indefinably. I will get ~ 8 hours out of the battery before hitting 15% (streaming online ...
  • Cons: No optimized flash. (You can install Flash 10.3 from market place). No native Google Marketplace (it can be installed via APK and works fine). No GPS. 256 RAM is a little limited. Runs Froyo - not expected to go to Gingerbread or Honeycomb.

A Great Tablet Requiring a Little Work

Instructor Too, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • 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...

A good inexpensive tablet

Jon W., Newegg
25 July 2011
  • Summary: Basically, this thing performs like a cheap netbook (not very fast, but fast enough to do most basic things). In Novembers of 2010 there was not a lot of other options for me to choose from, so I was happy with it. I'm not unhappy with it now, but I want something better.
  • Pros: -Great looking screen -Capacitive Touch (most in this price range have the older -resistive touch screen which is not as good). -Pinch Zoom (multi-touch) -Regular Updates -Running Android 2.3 with Firmware Update -Has it's own app store with an okay selection -Good battery life -Excellent default...
  • Cons: - Mine came with 256MB of memory. They should have put 512MB in it at release. 256MB is just not enough. - Not a lot of system storage. You don't get the full 8GB for app storage so you will run out of room. Some games need more than Archos provides. I had a hard time getting Plants vs Zombies ru...
