Consumer review (newegg.com)

twice faulty

 

the first one was returned due to Damage from Manufacturing Factory! Made right immediately by NewEgg! the second seemed to have some sort of defect trying to load my music collection the tablet kept rebooting and playing a movie would make it reboot...

video was good, 250 gig hard-drive was unbelievable in a tablet, was a fantastic theoretical piece of machinery. Operating system was nice

hard drive although huge seemed slow, somehow I dont think it was the hard drive, the tablet was incredibly heavy probably due to the hard drive, and the balance made the really cool kickstand unstable

Didn't work well

 

I have contacted Archos support, who where very helpful, and they exchanged it for me. However, I had the same problems with the new one I received. In short, I think having an actual HDD in a tablet is not a good idea, regardless of how much space it...

Nice size screen is great, good viewing angles

Despite the duel core processor it runs slow. It doesn't play video or audio well. Being a tablet from a company that has the tagline "Entertainment Your Way" you would expect it would play better. I believe it is the hard drive. It is nice to have so...

Arcos 80 Android Tablet

 

Buy a good case, I have repaired laptops for 10 years and people wont protect many with a 30 dollar case. This is not a toy nor should it be give to children... Arcos is a very good company and makes quality products...

Screen size and view are nice, Android 3.2 is simple enjoyable, music playback is great. I bought this for Wife and She loves all it can do... Music, Browsing Web, Email, Music playback, Games, and loads of apps

No major flaws, maybe camera

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very Disappointed

 

I was really excited to get this device, as it's currently the only Android 3.x+ device on the market (or even iOS for that matter) that has a harddrive larger than 160gb. That, plus the processor power, plus its ability to have more features than I...

Amazingly fast processor ; Android 4.0.3 was just pushed to it ; Optional 3G card ; Perfect size and weight ; Kick stand

Horribly slow internal HDD ; Clunky revision of Android made by Archos ; Not flashable ; Battery life is under par ; Options seem to be missing from the settings pages

Great Tablet, Needs more advertising.

 

Sadly overlooked by tablet buyers in the US, but not to be under estimated. Great Tablet, Great Company. Thank You Archos and keep up the Great Work... :)

1. Lightweight ; 2. Decent Battery Life ; 3. Responsive ; 4. Fair amount of updates from archos, to keep the unit prime ; 5. Good compatibility with Most Android market programs

1. Volume Button and camera location are in kind of weird places ; 2. 3G stick not available yet in the USA ; 3. Boot time seems a little slow, but once it is started WATCH OUT (very fast unit)

Never again

 

Decent Specs. Great for video

Archos is the kind of company that values you as a customer until you need their help. My warning is this; don't get burned by poor business ethics, stay away from archos! There are also plenty or great companies out there making products that far...

Some good, some bad

 

If anybody has a clue how to make the GPS worth using please share.

Price. Really, for android tablets price is the whole point almost right now. Sold by Newegg. There's a lot packed in there, it does everything listed in the product description, but some items it does poorly. Google apps all work well. File browser is...

People like to talk about build quality. I've held a Kindle or an IPad. They seems rock solid compared to this tablet. It feels fragile like I need to treat it with kid gloves ; The GPS barely works. I bet it gets a signal less then 10% of the time. If...

THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PIECE OF TECH, BEEN LOOKING TO GET A DECENT TABLET OR A WHILE NOW. GOT OTHER ARCHOS GADGETS AND HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THEM SO I BOUGHT THIS AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT IT IS BRILLIANT, I CANNOT FIND ANY FAULT WITH IT. LOADS...
