Cons: You get what you pay for. The initial product I bought had non-functioning WiFi. I was issued an RMA order. After they had received my order (2 days after the shipper had logged delivery) I then had to wait 31 days to receive the return item. The return item was the wrong item. I am still waiting to use an item I payed for two months ago. I had read the other reviews online and stupidly assumed people were just complaining about Archos. No the company and it's products are that bad. I am being repeatedly blown off by customer service. Stay away.

Good for the Money
Pros: It is one of the few tablets with a harddrive. And it's not as thick, power hungry, or slow as alot of people would think. The screen is responsive, the sound is good, the camera isnt real bad. I also own the Archos 70 internet tablet. This one is basically the same thing but with better hardware. I am quite happy with this. It runs well, plays well, great screen, mini-hdmi is a plus. The build quality is the thing I see most people complaining about. Sure its not built to survive a fall from the top of the Empire State building like maybe Ipads or Galaxy tabs are...but as long as you're careful with it...it doesnt matter.
Cons: The touchscreen can be a little buggy at times. I'll press an icon and nothing will happen, then press it again with the same amount of pressure and it will highlight. So not sure why its twitchy. This is the reason I took an egg off the score. But this is something im more than willing to live with.
Other Thoughts: Archos is a good company but produces alot of duds. BUT, if you can get a good one, it is very well worth the money.
