    Great product for a great price

    This is my first time owning an Andriod OS device and I have found it most easy to navigate and use.

    I use this device for:
    - Browsing the web while on the couch/bed
    - Playing the addictive games (angry birds, etc!)
    - Checking the weather and emails
    - Chatting with friends
    - Watching the occasional video

    The Archos 101 allows me to do all of this with ease. Now that I have been using the product for a few weeks here is what I have found:

    The good:
    - Andriod OS is easy to use and generally logical about where to find information.
    - The USB port. Wow, just connecting an external HDD to this and you have plenty of space for storage!
    - HDMI out. Surprisingly I didn't think I would really have a use for this, but when I needed to show photos at my parents place, I just plugged it into their TV, easy!
    - Battery life is decent, long constant use obviously drains the battery, but it is quite good.
    - The stand at the back. Its great for the bedside table when my wife wants to watch a movie while I want to sleep!
    - Picks up wi-fi easily. Also turns wi-fi off when screen saver comes on to save power.

    The bad:
    - The responsiveness of memory. When pressing the home button, it closes the app and sometimes takes 4-5seconds for the home page to come up. Not a large issue, but it is noticeable.
    - The back does heat up a bit after a prolonged continuous use.
    - The viewing angle of the screen is noticeable, but not really an issue as I don't hold the screen at weird angles, it will generally be front on.
    - My screen came with visible lines on the screen (when it is turned off. No idea what that is, but when the screen is on they aren't noticeable.

    The indifferent:
    - The soft-home keys. I didn't mind them, no issues, but some people may not like them.
    - There is no google market on here (as this is not a mobile device to qualify for the google market.) But that is solved by the Archos fans and easy to do. Only once you put this on the device do you have access to everything!

    Overall for the price I paid for this, it was a very nice introduction into the world of tablets. I have used the Ipad before, but I much rather this as I can actually use multiple applications nicely. I am yet to try Skype to use the camera on it, but I didn't buy the tablet for the camera!
    With a strong sturdy feel to the device, I have recommended this to others who were looking for a wi-fi only tablet.

    I was looking for a new tablet for nearly months that was under $250 and one thats not a chinese brand. My uncle gave me the link to this. The first time i saw this on the internet, i thought wow! this thing is soooo worth it! i ordered it and it came in 10 business days,LONG TIME! I finally got it and then I really like it at first! I tried using the camera and its super slow! it also takes blury photos! It doesnt even have a google play store! it has something called an applib, which has just a few apps but not all! the internet is quite slow as well...

    OVERALL, i dont think that this product is worth the price and this product isnt usefull for anyone who is used to using an android or an apple product!

          i thought with the flash 10.1 it will do a certain online game i play... but it only work on one game and it came up very slowly, the other game never loaded. it could be the cpu and low ram, also the screen look to be 19:9 ratio instead of 16:9.

            Although slow and tedious, the $ price tag makes this tablet a worthy piece of technology for us poor folks. The only thing I really would reconsider now is that I can't seem to play videos from Youtube, the browser app just crashes. I even downloaded Dolphin thinking it would help but it was of no use. I still may figure this out, but for now, no youtube... The 10" screen is really nice and it is light and durable so if $ is your price point go for it!

            Long Screen which is good for reading PDF and books you can also download from the Archos101 itself archostools that has Google playstore I assume that was the case because my Archos43 had that coice,at the reduced price it was a bargan. The Problem with this tablet is the poor viewing angle(s).You can install a 64gig sd but some apps "which automatically install themselves there" don't complete their installion,but with a 32gig their are fine. It is a fair backup for me instead of using my Ipad 2nd Gen

                    Must warn I bought the last one in stock at B&H (for now?), and it's discontinued. LOVED the service at B&H as always! This tablet is fabulous for reading (I bought it for a script-reading group) and has WiFi for email/Web searching. Very limited video usage, only plays 720p(?) videos. Not sure what that means, but I can't play my iTunes movies or Netflix movies. But it's beautiful, with long battery life and worked wonderfully at the script reading tonight! I love the built-in kick-stand! Not allowed to list the price here, but if you want a great price for anything electronic, go to B&H!!

                      Good for surfing the web but it does hang up when digging into deeper levels on certain sites - for examaple fantasy baseball - which can be frustrating. But good for surfing the web, reading books electronically,and checking email. For the price you can not beat it.

                      displacement super soft touch screen

                      have problems with screen rotation, I think it is due to android operating system version 2.1, it hurts manufacturer will put more firmware upgrade to android 4

                      I use my tablet to play games, put music and movies onto it, and to search the web for facebook or to do my homework online. I can't get it to work with Youtube though and it says Adobe Flashplayer is not compatible with the tablet so it's slightly disappointing but it is very cool for my first tablet-I've never had an app til now! I recommend getting an SD card for it so you have more space to save data/download games.

                            If u want basic wifi access and a few good radio apps, this isn't bad for the price. Can't compare to newer-generation devices, but at $[$]its pretty amazing.

                              I use this tablet around the house to check emails and browse the internet. This tablet does a good job for what I want it for and the price was right. I'm happy with it and I'd call it a keeper. My biggest complaint is keeping the screen free from finger marks.

                              Gave it 4 stars because of what I paid and what I got in return. The screen is not the most sensitive and controls (like zooming in and out) are different from an IPAD and other tablets where you pull away on the screen or pinch to shrink screen. instead this device has a different set of control (like pressing on a zoom con) that is a bit more labor intensive (if you want to call that lazy).

                              Bought this to get my mother in law started on her first tablet. At less than $, this is a very affordable 10 inch tablet. Even though it is a bit on the slow side, basic web browsing, checking and sending emails, listening to web radios and music, playing games, browsing pictures, watching videos/movies and even making video calls are possible on this tablet. Browser does crash consistently when viewing Flash based sites. Screen quality is very good, but it could be a bit slow in responding to touch input. Given the price point it is at, it's a nicely designed, light weight and a very decent entry level 10 inch tablet.

                                Comments about Archos 101 internet tablet (8GB):

                                Outstanding value. There is a learning curve, but the 101 is extremely useful (and fun)
