Archos 5 Internet Tablet

 

The Archos 5 gets a refresh with Google's Android OS, but with mixed results.

Sleek design. Huge, beautiful, high-res screen. Built-in Wi-Fi, browser. On-screen home button for one-click Main Menu access. No need for stylus. Available in large capacities.

Expensive. Touch-screen interface is not as sophisticated as those of competitors. Apps aren't well-executed. UI could stand to be streamlined—requires too many clicks at times.

Archos Home Connect 35 Review

 

The low resolution screen and antique Android 2.2 OS may turn some people off, but for highly functional and clock this is a great device.

Archos 5 60GB Internet Media Tablet

 

The Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet (PMP, MID, etc., etc.) is getting a lot of attention lately, and rightly so. It combines the performance, function, and content most of us are looking for in a portable media device: full Web connectivity, PC...

The cons are moderately annoying at worst. A stylus would have been a practical accessory; some Web pages are difficult to navigate on the touchscreen. (Still, you can zoom in and out by double-tapping.) The glossy metal finish is in no way a...

Archos 5 Internet tablet with Android

The Archos 5 Internet tablet/portable media player offers a large, high-resolution touch-screen display, Wi-Fi, music playback, photos, Flash video and game compatibility, Bluetooth, e-mail, a Web browser, a built-in speaker, an integrated kickstand,...

GPS signal reception is poor enough to make the feature useless; many popular Android apps are unsupported; Flash video support is hit or miss; no multitouch support for keyboard or gestures; text copy and paste is a chore; and the glossy design shows...

The Archos 5 is a great video player, but it disappoints as a premium Android Internet tablet and GPS unit.

Adding Wi-Fi connect ivity and the Android operating system to a portable media player is the design concept behind the Archos Home Connect device.

For all its perverse Frenchery, this is a satisfyingly compact device.

Archos 5 Internet Tablet Android-based PMP

 

The Archos 5 Internet Tablet is everything the Archos 5 was, but with better performance, enhanced hardware and all the advantages Google Android brings to the party.

We were very impressed with the Archos 5 first time round and the addition of Android combined with the hardware tweaks only improves things. While it is lacking some aspects of the full Android experience, the 5 still has far more potential than most...

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"Has a lot of potential."

 

It has so much potential and its so beautiful to hold and look at but can't do much with it. The only apps I can get and some at that are from Amazon app store. Beautiful display and can't get Netflix. Only if they would update this to Android...

beautiful display and audio quality and fun to browse on.

Not a google certified tablet. Seems Archos abandoned this tablet. No update in years. Resitive touch screen.

Research

 

If you have a great understanding of tech, then this device is your best friend, the new firmware hasn't crashed on me in a bout a week. However, no matter how much I love the device I simply cannot recommend it to beginners, because of the...

This is a very good all around PMP, movies, music, internet, android apps

You need to what you're getting in to. This isn't an ipod or a zune, you need to know how to upgrade firmware, and understand whats wrong so you can fix it. It DOES crash intermittently, but a reset never hurt you

Consumer review (newegg.com)

nothing but headaches

 

I had planned to use this as an MP3 player, GPS, and fill in DVR but there is no way I am going to spend more money with this company to buy the "add ons" when it freezes up just doing what it is supposed to do out of the box. I do not recommend this...

large capacity, beautiful screen

this thing is very picky with music files and wont play most, videos freeze, the internet connection works SOMETIMES but not most and worst of all the unit freezes up constantly and must be reset
