Archos 43 Internet Tablet


An aggressive price and impressive spec, but undermined by middling performance

Pretty cool ........


Works well, software operation is stable. Hardware is solid though the volume button rattles a bit but it's solid, not going to fall off any time soon. Typing on it takes the deftest touch but with much frustration and practice it does come around...
