Archos 101 Internet Tablet
Advantages: good build quality, good screen, stand, good file type threshold
Disadvantages: lacking on processing, camera quality
Had this for a little over a year now and gets used quite a lot now i'm commuting daily.
Processing/Quality >>>> Very thin, light, and has a very sturdy, good build quality feel about it. This being my first Archos product I was wary about build material quality, but their actually surprisingly good. Doesn't feel cheap at all, which is nice. As for processing, not magnificent but not terrible, handles most applications fine, but can be a little bit slow when loading more complex apps, or carrying out lots and lots of tasks at once. It also takes a little while to boot up, but I've not really found it to be an issue. The power connector jack is slightly dodgy in that it falls out quite easily, not broken just a slight design error.
Reliability >>>> Not had any issues with this at all really, it froze a couple of times, about it really.
Ease of use >>>> The touch screen works well and the android software also, now they've tweaked it a bit since its initial release. Be sure to install android market as well as it doesn't come loaded with it, quite easy, just head to the Archos forums and you'll easily find a link with instructions. The kindle software works well and doesn't strain your eyes, the screen also gives a very good picture for video and images surprisingly. Awesome little stand, very helpful, and means you don't have to buy a case with a stand.
Battery >>>> Lasts quite a long time, depending on usage, its impossible to say. But i never find myself recharging it every day, and it gets used quite a lot as well.
I know that the newer version of this gen of tablets is coming out soon or now, but these(101 & 70) are still a great buy, recommended for middle of the range in price and what you get in return.
Summary: good middle of the range product,
