Summary: Amazon is currently selling the Archos 70b for $179 and, at this price, it seems tempting. However, there are a number of flaws that keep us from recommending this device. The most glaring deficiencies are the maddeningly sluggish accelerometer, mediocre screen and short battery life. At this price, your money is better spent on either the Kindle Fire or the Nook Tablet, which are both available for just a few dollars more.
Pros: Built-in kickstand, Loud speakers, Lightweight design, Access to Google Play store
Cons: Sluggish performance including terribly slow accelerometer, Short battery life, Screen gridlines visible, Inconsistent Wi-Fi performance, Runs hot
