Review Archos Arnova 10b G2 Tablet/MID

 

Budget tablet? Archos is not a newcomer on the tablet market. The

Unbeatable low price; Stable case; High contrast screen

Poor camera; Pixelated screen; Quickly scratched high gloss surface; Poor heat dissipation

The Arnova 10b G2 actually does not have any contenders – there is hardly a 10 incher available for EUR 200. Nevertheless we compared it with more expensive tablets, e.g. Acer's Iconia Tab A100, Motorola's Xoom 2 MZ616, Asus' Eee Pad Transformer Prime...

Archos's first netbook has a full software stack and a fast hard drive, but its battery life and keyboard are lacking.

At first glance, the Archos 10 seems like a real bargain: it includes At first glance, the Archos 10 seems like a real bargain: it includes $100 worth of free software, and has a faster hard drive and boot time than many of its competitors, as well as...

Archos's first foray into netbooks is this aggressively priced model. A creative bundling package makes this "me-too" netbook a little more enticing.

Affordable; lots of useful preinstalled software; movies bundled into purchase price

Mediocre performance; cramped keyboard; short battery life; free media is very limited and requires credit-card information

Despite the disappointing media options, Archos still has the least-expensive netboook on the market. Most other systems start at $499 and offer minimal software, making this the model to beat in terms of price. As far as usability goes, however, the...

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Yes, it's a laptop from the portable media player manufacturer

Connectivity ; Strong plastics ; Bit Defender pre-installed

Terrible keyboard ; Sub-standard screen

Archos 10 notebook review

 

The netbook market has pretty much saturated itself over the last year. With Archos better known for their internet media tablets, it is perhaps a surprise to see them step into the world of netbooks. Yes, they do sort of punt into the same territory,...

Trackpad is pretty good, matte screen good for outdoor use

Poor keyboard, poor battery life, price

The Archos 10 is punching above its weight alongside offerings from the likes of Asus and MSI, so there is little that appeal here

The Archos Arnova 10 is a budget Android tablet that cuts one too many corners.

Cheap

Poor touchscreen ; Poor display ; No Android Market

All the Arnova 10's ports and physical buttons are on its left edge. There's a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB and microUSB slots, a microSD slot and the power jack. There is a gap for an HDMI slot in its body work, as this tab uses the same basic design as...

The Archos Arnova 10 Android tablet makes a good video-playback device thanks to its large, 10-inch display. Its sluggish performance and unresponsive touchscreen make browsing the Web a real chore, though.

Large, high-resolution screen ; Android software is easy to use ; Good video playback quality

Poor battery life ; Unresponsive resistive screen ; Sluggish processor

If you're primarily looking for a cheap video player to keep the kids entertained during long car journeys, the Archos Arnova 10 will be fine. But, if you're looking for an Internet tablet, then its sluggish performance, unresponsive touchscreen and...

Archos pitches up at the netbook party: is it fashionably late or just in time to miss the fun?

A fun netbook with promising potential, but the asking price is a joke

Expert review by:

Archos 10 review

 

The Archos 10 doesn't do much to justify its purchase or even its existence. It's ultimately a very average product that's outclassed by other netbooks in a number of key areas

Matte screen finish ; Comes with antivirus software pre-installed

Rubbish battery life ; Fiddly keyboard

Conclusion There's hardly any point in buying the Archos 10, unless you can find it for less than the £350 asking price. It's simply average in most areas and falls on its face in the crucial area of battery life. Get yourself the all-conquering Asus...
