This is such a terrible excuse of an internet tablet

 

Your better off buying an ipod and i really hate ipods. This is such a waste of money, but if you want something with an unresponsive touch screen, almost no apps, and garbage headphones then you should definetely buy this

There really wasn't anything special about this device

This is an android device yet it can barely use any android apps. It has a terrible response time on the touch screen even though i calibrated it many times and the applib that is supposed to be like the android marketplace sucks sooo much

Archos 28 (8GB)

 

This is totally useless. Nothing more than a cheap MP3 player with the ability to browse the web at wifi hotspots. I am not an Apple fan but, if you are looking for an internet tablet that's going to give you your monies worth get an Ipad.

It was inexpensive. Under $90 at Sears

I didn't like anything about it touch pad was useless even with a stylus it couldn't get the letters correct on the keyboard. Unresponsive most of the time. No Android Apps just some trash from Applibs

Cheap....you pay what you get for. Not worth it.

 

If the screen was responsive, this would be worth it. It could of had a running chance had they made this with a bit more quality. This was originally a gift for my younger brother to get him used to android, but i decided not to give it to him ......

In-expensive. Very portable, able to play many types of media

Horrible horrible horrible response touch screen, tiny screen, slow, not much android apps on an ANDROID device, back cover is weak, battery life is short, has an internal rattling noise from 1st drop

Cool on a budget

 

I had my doubts when I purchased this device. I hadn't had a hands on experience with Android yet, and over the years I have tried many hand-held mp4 players that haven't lived up to the product description. This product is different. I recommend...

Great battery life ; Compact/Highly portable ; Very Clear Screen ; Runs wide range of media formats ; Multi-tasking

Doesn't come with a wall charger, only a USB cable. This isn't a big deal, because you can pick up your own for cheap if you want one. Charges relatively fast on computer/USB ; Wireless a 'little' weak. Not a big deal given the price

10 days only?

 

network is fine, easy to use

I ordered this on 2/21 and it stopped working this afternoon 3/7. I was listening to a book this morning and couldn't to restart it this afternoon even I tried 2 laptops to recharge it. It's just dead and that's all

Consumer review by:

Good for the Money

 

I really like this as wireless music player and for streaming Internet radio. Like a tiny Swiss Army knife, the Archos 28 does a lot of things, but only the basic features shine in this unit. Not a substitute for a full size notebook PC.

Very small and handy - more than just an MP3 player

Tiny screen and weak wireless

Great Tablet

 

Was bought as a Christmas gift for my son, who is extremely happy with it. He did not know what to expect but has gotten a lot of enjoyment and usefullness out of the unit

Very nice features, OS stable

Ran into a problem with the screen, so far Newegg has made it fairly easy to replace the tablet
