Awesome perfomance !!!!
from Leduc, AB
I agree with you Bob!... The negative reviews made me so nervous coz I bought 12 !!!... But honestly, I don't know where the negative reviews are coming from coz I never heard a single bad comment about this unit, considering my family is so meticulous and so tech-y and won't mince words if it ain't what it's what they were looking for....and no problems so far!!!!.... It works great in Southeast Asia !!!!!!I have done a review earlier on and I am sharing on this site coz it seems I posted it on the revuiew of another Archos item... Here goes ---Honestly,I was so nervous after purchasing 12 of this...But I got the one with the 32 GB additional storage... I wasn't sure all the reviews were being honest or just sour-graping for one reason or another...I gifted this tablet for my family members who are all in Sourtheast Asia... They received it 3 weeks ago...and I am soooooooooooooooo happy and soooooooooooooo impressed with the performance of this tablet!.... I never heard a single complaint from any of my family members who are very tech-y!.... Some apps were not availbale yet in our Asian region but boy did all of each of the Archos unit serve all their purposes... and they still rave about it after 3 weeks!... just made my heart fat and proud... haha!!Thank you Archos!... I hope you make more apps available in the Philippines... This was my X'mas present to all of them so you just made my family very happy!!!Thank you TSC... this brand is good!... Keep carrying it!

I'm not one of these people who write a review the first hour I use a new product and then go on and bash it, without really knowing what I'm talking about. Anyone who has had a problem with this tablet, I would say it's not the tablets fault,if you get my point. This tablet is easy to use, but takes a little getting used to, like any electronic device. My girl friend and I both bought one. She watches movies on hers when she's away, Netflix. I have mine hooked to TV with supplied HDMI. I also have the blue tooth paired with my wireless Bose. Sound great when playing games or watching a movie. This Tablet is a great size for me, I didn't want to carry around a 10' screen. WIFI works great when I go into a coffee shop I can go online and check things out. Sooo many apps come with this. I'll never see them all but have downloaded the ones useful for me and there free. I know other people who have a different tablet and they have to pay for their apps. This tablet is very user friendly. I would say to anyone it's worth the money, just learn about it before you trash it. Amazing deal.

The product is absolutely bad. The SD card did not work and it has taken over two months to have it replaced and therefore being stuck with the unit. It is so slow and freezes all the time. Watching movies is ok but I could have bought a portable DVD player instead. Customer service is non existent at the SC and are of no help.

really, really bad
i have very little good to say about this product. it's so slow it's ridiculous, auto-rotate doesn't work, and customer support is pretty much non-existent. had another member of my household not disposed of the packaging without my knowledge, i most certainly would have returned it immediately. now i'm stuck with it. about the only think it's any good for is watching movies during air travel. any half-decent android smart phone is better than this unfortunate product. terrible.

I bought two of these tablets after watching the show several times. I bought one for myself and one for my niece's birthday in October. As soon as they arrived I charged mine up and tried to start using it. Nothing but problems including shutting down, saying no internet connection yet my laptop did sitting right beside it. I sent both back as I wasn't letting the 30 day return window close and have my niece stuck with something she couldn't use.
Cute by quality poor

I was really excited to get this tablet. I loved the size and thought it was perfect until I started to use it. I found it pretty easy to use to download the aps, but it would not hold a charge. Then it froze up while playing a card game, and for a few hours it would not do anything. When I used the camera and skyped people, they told me they could not understand what I was saying.,...on my laptop they can. I could not read my eamils. It was a big disappointment after using it for a couple weeks. Sent it back even after talking to the service people as I doubt its' long term usage.
I had the tablet for 5 days and loved it. Tons of apps easily downloaded. So I was very disappointed when it just suddenly stopped turning on. Tried charging it again to have no luck. I am sending it back with great disappointment.
Pretty good for the price!

I was quite hesitant about this when I finally received my package because of the earlier reviews, but after having it for a few days and trying everything out, I find it quite enjoyable!! :)My email set-up was easy*sending & receiving works great*; uploading pictures, home video's & movies work great and viewing them all work; browsing the internet has been fine; watching youtube movies is great; uploaded my apps (Kobo, Netflix, games, etc) and they are all great; speakers are good; plugged in my headset and tried my other ext. speaker system and output was all good..overall for the Show Stopper Price, I'm very satisfied!!There are only a couple of things I had issues with: 1) the stand is already broken. When I pulled it out to use the mechanism to swivel is stuck (won't budge) and it bent back the arm so it's not usable; 2) when you're not using earphones or ext. speakers the speakers on the unit are hard to hear if it's not on high.
I was quite hesitant waiting for my Archos to arrive because of the earlier reviews, but I've had this for a few days and I really quite enjoy it!! It does everything that they said it could. I've configured my email easily; uploaded some photos, home video's, slide shows, & music; downloaded movies; watched Netflix movies; surfed the 'net; skype'd; looked over word docs & excel spreadsheets; got my apps and used them all successfully (Kobo, Netflix, games, etc),tried out the plug for speakers/earphones and it has great output. This unit is a keeper! There are a couple of things that could be better: 1) when not plugged into an ext. speaker system/earphones, the speakers could really only be heard when on high, otherwise if lower it's hard to hear; 2) the stand broke too easily-looks like the swivel part is stuck so the arm bent when I tried to pull it out.I'm happy with the price and the capabilities of this tablet. :)
