Not a bad little tablet

CJ, Amazon
2 April 2013
  • Summary: This isn't a $300 tablet. What this is, however, is a decent $170 one. I don't think it's meant for hardcore app gamers and they may find it lacking in a number of areas, but I think it's fine for advanced casual gamers who's looking for more than what a phone can offer. At it's heart, it's a table and a pretty good one. Android's Jellybean OS runs pretty smooth and quickly without any problems as far as I could tell. The screen is just ok though.

Great for emulators

M. Caroe, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought mainly to use playing emulated games. There is plenty of storage space for that. A lot of the games I am playing have built in mapping tools for the buttons. Try the mapping tools in the game before you use the Archos mapping tool. Overall this tablet performs very nicely for playing emulators. Although the battery life isn't the best, I usually don't have two hours to sit down and play anyway, so it has not been a problem for me.

  • Summary: screen quality is bad wieving angles is bad as well, battery life is even worse. it takes about 3 minutes to fully boot. lags for no reason, but games run good. if you need cheap tablet for running emulators its good thing. runs all emulators very good nes, snes, mega drive, n64, psone, dreamcast, nds, gbc. dosbox windows 95, 98, 2000 runs perfect.

archos gamepad review

kieran m, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: Got this for playing my emulators but did not know how to get my games to run from sd card so after some hunting in the archos forums i can now play my games from my 32gb sd card .when you start your emulator look for mnt then exteral-sd then the file on your sd card with the roms for that emulator.also i got astro file manager on the play store .you will need this to move files to sd card .as a tablet its fast and responsive with good display.

An up to date review

webber303, Amazon
4 May 2013
  • Summary: I have had my Arches Gamepad for about two weeks now and I have to say I'm impressed. Its not a perfect device, but any short comings are far outweighed by its pros. I had read that the original shipped firmware was buggy and not good at all, but was pleased to discover at archos had released updated firmware which was intended to fix the original teething problems.

Not much else emulates it!

R. Coyne "Theseus", Amazon
29 January 2013
  • Summary: It was a close call between 3 and 4.. but really starting to become inseparable from it on the train to work now! I'm not a massive fan of archos but took the chance on this. I had recently bought my nephews a couple of Pipo S1's which have similar internals. I was after a competent tablet that I could play games on as I can not get away with using the touch screen for games.
