    Archos ARCHOS 70 Reviews

    70 internet tablet (8GB) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 78.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product I bought this tablet to replace my broken iPod Touch that I've had for almost 2 years now. I was originally looking at getting one of the 4th gen touches but after a little bit of shopping I came across this for the exact same price, there was no competition. Just the right size to fit in a guy's jean pocket, and still a 7 inch 16:9 display for movies. Also, the kickstand may seem unimportant, but trust me, you will use it. The battery life is AMAZING, lasts all day. On occasion it will start to slow down if you run 10+ processes on it, but that is expected. Unbeatable for the price. Buy it, you wont regret it. Putting on Google Market is a piece of cake.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Archos 70it 250gb review I use this product for listening to music,watch movies, research parts for my job (being in the military and deployed it comes in handy with technical manuals) and of course games. All of which i have had no problems. The 7in display is amazing i would say perfect size. The 250gb hdd is great limitless for everything. It is not bulky or to heavy. And being that it is android there are so many ways to customize it. I honestly have nothing to say on the not so great side. Just be patient with your product with a little research and tinkering you can do just about anything. Thanks Again SGT Martinez

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I've had this tablet for over a week and i am very impressed. The sound quality is amazing. The storage capacity is more than i should ever need. I use it mainly to watch videos in american sign language and the built in kickstand is great for allowing multiple people to view the screen. Sometimes i notice a little lag in the processing speed as the hard drive revs up but it hasn't been a problem. There is a very slight vibration from the hard drive that is picked up by the webcam. The battery life could be better but so far it hasn't died on me when i needed it. Otherwise i can't think of anything negative to include in this review.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to IPad Runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) and has access to the Android Market. Allows Flash content, IPad dose not! Like the 7 inch size better than the 10.1 inch IPad. Has a front facing camera good for Skyping. Uses WiFi connections a/b/g/n but does not utilize the 3G or 4G. Capacitive touch screen is sensitive and the resolution is nice. For the price this is a great value and so far a solid performer for me with internet browsing and answering my emails and watching videos. Hook it to your computer with the included USB cable and it comes up like another drive and you can easily add your own content, like music and movies. Can expand the 8GB by adding another 32GB via the Micro SD card slot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for the money Cons: little sluggish, no Android market, battery life just barely adequate, screen resolution could be better, doesn't charge via USB. Pros: 250gb (!!!), light, excellent form factor for long commute, Android, any video format. In my book pros beat cons hands down. And did I mention the price? Got it as a birthday present from my wife. As soon as I showed it to her - I saw so much excitement in her eyes, I just had to give it up. Now she is pretty happy watching movies and reading books on the long bus commute. Now I am waiting for her birthday to get one too. R.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product I bought this with a very specific idea: backup of my pictures while travelling. The capacity offered is incredible, and the price really interesting! And you even get access to Wifi while on the go! Only drawback: The USB port is not a standard USB, but micro USB. Therefore, I needed to buy a USB host cable (very cheap) to be able to connect my camera, card reader and external HDD. I will leave in a couple of weeks, but I am very enthusiast as I feel this will soon replace my Laptop/Lonely Planet guide/Mp3 player combination!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one has everything you need The price on this tablet from B&H Photo was to good to be true. The Archos 70 internet tablet with 250GB has more storage then the average person would ever need in a tablet and the apps available for a Android system are terrific. I feel like I'm sitting at my desktop computer. From the ability to load my movies on the hard drive to being able to show them on my friends and families TV sets it has it all. The best part is I can put it in my pocket and it's have tabelt will travel. I don't usually write reviews but this product deserves it. Couldn't be happier

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You Won't Regret Having 250GB of Storage Nice unit, not without its flaws, but solid and a good value. The standout is the 250GB; you can carry your entire music collection, coded at high bit rate and still have space for lots of movies and books. And with this player, movies are worth having. The web community is good for help and info; check out forum dot archosfans dot com. This unit is best described as a super iPod touch, without the ease of iTunes or Apple jail. More screen, more storage and full Froyo support. Be prepared to do some workarounds. Some computer literacy is needed.
