Archos 79 Xenon review


A well-built tablet, but a low-res screen and poor performance count against it

Archos 79 Xenon


I think the Archos 79 Xenon is certainly an interesting product but one that would need to fit a certain niche in the current £150-£200 tablet market and i’m not convinced on the size and priorities of that group.

Archos 79 Xenon 3G


Nice bit of kit. Good, clear screen

It would be useful if the microphone was at the front, rather than the rear. I have the tablet in a case and the microphone is covered.
