Archos 80 Cobalt: Cheap tablet for beginners and kids
25 April 2014
Excerpt: I have had the tablet for a little over a year and it's already been consigned to the scrapheap. On paper the tablet is good value for money and the screen is big enough for watching movies and making out small text, but all positives really stop there.
Pros: Large clear screen, good build quality
Cons: Slow processor, apps often can't open or force close, doesn't charge via mirco USB
Summary: I initially bought this tablet in the tesco boxing day sale for £49,however the first one developed a defect and was swiftly replaced,and so far so good with the replacement. It has been great value for money,great for multi tasking,playing downloaded games,dragon gems,jewel quest etc.
Summary: A quarter of the price of a mini iPad, so for the money, much better value than a mini ipad as it can do the following extra: Recognises and runs 3g USB stick - so if you have one of these it will turn your device into a low cost 3g tablet.
Summary: the item is ok but I am not able to watch live shows on it namingly my website "Dave C's Master Mix" there are live radio shows on my website and I can't see what's going on on It , I am able to listen to the programmes but not able to see the Dj's I have since then phoned Archos tech support and...
Summary: My son bought two of these tablets at Christmas one for him and one for me. I am a novice with these wizz electrics and I have found he one I have as very good and performs many tasks. However, a word of warning.
Summary: Only had this for week so this is only an initial review. Last year I bought a Toshiba AT 300-101, and I was looking for something less bulky and more portable. Saw this on the Tesco Outlet store on EBay advertised at £49.99.
Summary: It may not have the screen quality of an I-pad or nexus 7 but as a tool it works very well. worked straight out of the box easy if you're used to an android phone. Quick on the net and well put together. I'd recommend this product for the price
Summary: I managed to get my Cobalt tablet at a heavily discounted price in a Boxing Day Sale, so of course I am thrilled to have got one of these for half price. For the past three months I have been using this an hour / a couple of hours a day.
