      I bought my Archos G9 101 tablet for work and it has performed great while at home. In the work enviroment, the truck I drive in and the outside usage I have to use the tablet in, I am not too sure this is the best tablet for this. About 2 months into having the unit, it would not come on, I thought it was a dead battery but it turns out that there is something else wrong with it. Currently it is being sent back to Archos to be checked out. Don't get me wrong, I like the tablet but for outside use, I do not think this or any other tablet is the best, unless it is made for outside use, such as construction, plumbing, electrical trades, etc.

      The 1.0GHz ARM dual-core OMAP 4 is slow for daily browsing usage.

      The 1st device I got was defected and replaced.

      Good for toddlers / basic usage.

        I bought this tablet specifically to be a Still monitor for my Canon 5D mark ii. To use this i added the Canon Controller app but it ran to slow for our needs. The tablet itself is very cool and easy to use and it was the first time I played with a non-Apple tablet.

                  I bought this tablet for my kids. For the price I thought it would be better than getting some cheap kids tablet or the one from Leap Frog. My only problem I had setting it up was Google Play store didn't work correctly at first. Turned out Google Play did not recognize the device when I first set it up. Contacted Archos support and they emailed me the solution within 1 business day. I have yet to find an app that doesn't work well with it, and the battery life is phenomenal. The kids love it.

                    Yes this is an inexpensive tablet and I knew this was not going to be as good as more expensive tablets but right out of the box the interface was choppy and disconnected feeling. Running a simple app such as netflix results in 4-10 second response times from when I click on an icon or letter on the keypad. Just the pressure from holding the outer case causes enough flex to cause it to interprit it as a touch on the screen itself and it often picks this up as a touch on the back button which causes very fruterating behavior. All I wanted was something to check email, and look up information on the web and I find it easier and faster to do it from a smart phone. After a month the device would no longer charge. Save your money and buy a quality tablet.

                          Bought this for.the parents for Christmas. As long as your getting something simple its great! Doesn't have some of the functions or the style of an iPad but does everything you need it too and the screen resolution is great. Dimensions are a little different but totally worth the price.
