Summary: I purchased this tablet to be used for surfing the web, email, listen to music, and of course watch videos. So far it has worked correctly when watching Netflix, YouTube, local videos, music online and offline. The built in speakers are pretty loud. The wireless stays connected and provides options to allow it to turn off the wireless adapter when not in used.
Summary: I've been using this tablet for a good couple of months. In short it can do everything any other tablet can do just as well. Pros: -It has a very powerful gpu chip that is said to rival the tegra 3. -The screen has an extremely crisp resolution and is 4:3 aspect ratio similar to Apple's line of tablets. -4:3 aspect ratio makes reading pdfs and other ebooks soooo easy. The entire page fits on the screen and you don't get black borders.
cheap, fast, bright, sturdy, and with up-to-date Android

Summary: You could buy 2 or 3 of these for the price of an iPad mini. So what? The difference between the Archos 80ti and other inexpensive tablets is that this one is NICE. The screen is brilliant, sharp, and has good resolution. It's FAST and has sufficient memory so that even the kids' obnoxious games run without lag. It's a good size, the weight is solid but not too heavy for one-handed use.
Summary: ***WARNING*** If you are looking to purchase electronics, stay away from Official ARCHOS, Inc. After much research, I decided to purchased a tablet that ended up being not much more than a paperweight... I sent it back and they received it on July 1st... I am still waiting for either a replacement or my money back... customer service hangs up on me when I call, after I have spent an average of 20 minutes on hold...
Summary: I got this for my 7-year-old to play games on, and it's been a big hit. I've installed dozens of games, from Google Play and Amazon, and everything has worked fine. Just like most other tablets, there are some compatibility issues with a few games. The app stores are smart enough to ask you which tablet you have, and won't let you download a game if it won't work with your system. Don't let this scare you away though, it's only been a couple of games.
Summary: This looks like an iPad Mini but, as many reviews point out, that's where the similarities end. For the money, however, I think this wins the "bang for your buck" category. My previous tablet was an Archos 70, so all my impressions are a result of comparisons to that. First, obviously, the size. Out of the box, my first thought was "wow, not much difference between 7 and 8 inch." This is because I was picturing the popular 9 inch iPad everyone has.
