Archos 80 Cobalt: Cheap tablet for beginners and kids

rocketshi..., Ciao
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. In my opinion anyone who is well versed in android and has experience with any smartphone will be disappointed. Firstly the tablet, despite its 1.6GHz processor, often suffers from slow loading speeds. ...
  • Pros: Large clear screen, good build quality
  • Cons: Slow processor, apps often can't open or force close, doesn't charge via mirco USB

Great tablet - bargain price

  • Summary: This tablet was recommended by a friend. Couldn't get a new one so went Refurbished to get the model I was after. Couldn't be more impressed - the system is stable, speed is great, colour screen is very impressive, battery life is amazing. Slight issue that the tablet occasionally drops the internet connection but easily reconnected. Highly recommend.

Much better than I thought it would be !

  • 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. Despite some misgivings, as there are a few negative reviews on the Tesco site, I decided to buy it. First impressions are nearly all positive.

  • 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.,however the you tube player isn't very good,buffers and stalls,though ,plays well through chrome,and catchup TV is great.

Compact low cost tablet.

A Munro, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • 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. Runs flash downloaded from the Adobe Flash Andriod archive - just download and install after changing the security settings to allow unknown sources installs. You can then watch flash enabled web sites.

Amazing value for money tablet

  • Excerpt: I already own a good quality android based tablet for my own use, but found my child was begging for one too. I initially refused and bought the usual array of toys for Christmas (Lego etc) but still had a load of unopened toys sat in my living room come mid February. I sold them on a selling site and used the cash to buy my child what he had wanted all along - one of these.

  • 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. My son left his switched off in a drawer when he went on a week,s holiday and when he returned he discovered that the case had expanded and join had expanded to about an inch showing the works.

  • 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.

A decent enough tablet computer

kristoph23, Dooyoo
3 April 2013
  • Excerpt: When it comes to tablets most people tend to either go for the iPad or nothing at all. I needed a new tablet which was cheap to take with me out me and act like my iPad does. == Design == This tablet is made by a brand most people would instantly turn away from because it is not as well known or advertised as other brands are. This tablet has a sleek black colour to it which enables it to look smart and sophisticated.
