  • Returned it after Christmas and purchased the 10.1 android as no play store, No updates and a few to many marks but a part from that worked great, excellent picture even on video playback.

  • First one bricked when doing software upgrade. Replacement is losing data and locking up. Arnova support not answering emails or phone. Avoid

  • Excellent tablet, solidly built and a great screen. There is no Google Play support, search Arctablet for updates on this. A real iPad challenger when Google play is installed.

  • Brilliant bright responsive tablet with wifi-n. I miss bluetooth for connecting to keyboard/mouse/speaker/headphones/headset and miss the extra ram 4gb instead of 32gb - though I added a microsd card. I logged onto google and got web access to google play/market (afterall thats where they make money - selling apps!) Extremely good build quality. Price point was realistic this is for my nephew. Additionally only had to buy Memory Card, Archos G9 3g-stick and Screen Protector.

  • Just picked up one of these today.

    It's a great tablet all in all with all the features you'd expect of a tablet around the £200 mark (IPS screen, 1GB RAM, etc). The screen is wonderful and is nice and responsive. It really makes a difference having an IPS screen as you can still see what's on the screen without having to be looking at it straight on. The screen seems to be scratch and fingerprint resistant from my experience with it so far.

    Sound wise, I haven't really had much chance to test it out, but there is a headphone jack if all else fails!

    The build quality is relatively sturdy with good buttons and a nice weighty, expensive feel, but the back is a little on the plasticy side. It would have been nice if the shell was aluminium like similarly priced alternatives, such as the Cube UGT92. Connectivity wise, there is a full size USB port on the side which is rare on a tablet of any size which can be used to attach a keyboard or the optional 3G dongle. There is also a mini USB port and a headphone jack as mentioned above. No HDMI out though, so no showing off your HD movies to your mates!

    The current firmware doesn't come with the Google Play store and there is currently no firmware upgrade available for this model on the "ArcTool" application which you can install from the "AppsLib" store which comes installed on the device. This is a bit of a pain as there's not really anything worth getting on Appslib and a whole bunch of the stuff doesn't work anyway. For example, a lot of the apps require the device to be "Rooted" (Like Jailbreaking for an iPhone), but you can't get "SuperUser" on Appslib, which allows you to root your device! The device does come pre-installed with angry birds and a few other rudimentary apps to get you started and performance wise, it should handle anything you can throw at it.

    In summation, it looks like this tablet will only get better with time. Give it a few weeks and I'm sure Archos will release a firmware update that allows access to Google Play and then it will be a serious contender for the "I really don't want to pay £400 for a big iPhone" market, of which I am proudly part.

    4 / 5 stars

  • Seems like a nice product and was delivered very quickly. However the one delivered has a slight fault. The black painted trim beneath the glass was part missing, so it looked terrible. The screen itself is quite sharp. After an initial set up, the tablet is ready to use. It found my wireless network quickly and I was soon online. I haven't tried too much else apart from a quick check on a couple of websites as it is going back for a replacement tomorrow.
