Summary: I had to return this to Archos 11 months after purchase because it failed. The replacement has now failed less than a year later. Decent enough tablet, just don't expect it to last more than a year.
Summary: I received this tablet and the first thing I noticed was a dent on the side, next to the volume buttons. The next thing was that the tablet was off. First, I though it was just discharged so I charged it.
Carbon: dated and copied, but still a good element to have

Summary: Here's my backstory: my local store (Micro Center) had a boxed Archos 97 Carbon (9.7 inch Android ICS tablet) on sale for $99.99 on 10/28/13. And it was one of the rare times Amazon didn't beat the price. So I zoomed to get it.
Summary: I bought this tablet for my aunt and she is very satisfied. The display and touchscreen respond well and the processor speed is fast. My only complaint would be the sound. It is rather muffled and I haven't figured out if it can be configured to be clearer and louder.
Summary: Its an OK tablet, not excellent, but it works. Sometimes goes slow and storage is small. Cameras very low quality and sound is not loud enough to ear a movie, you have to use earphones! I have watched a couple of movies from the Internet and the quality is good.
Summary: i absolutely love this tablet. i got it for christmas i wouldnt want anything else. it has 1080p/hd screen and pictures just come to life on it. i dont use too many apps so 16 gig is enough for me. this is the best cheapest tablet out there and i had never even heard of this brand before.
