I have been using Archos 101 for a month and I thought my experience might be useful for the other Amazon visitors. Before Archos 101 product, I had a chance of using iPad and Samsung Galaxy tab - which are our test tablets for the applications we developed. All tablet devices have their own pros and cons, I think as a buyer you are the one who know your needs best and you can decide which one fits your requirements.

I would like to evaluate the product from different aspects:

It has 10.1 excellent high resolution capacitive multitouch screens - be careful it is rectangular, not square type like iPad and the rest of the other 10inches (if you are looking for a case - this might be good to know) in the market. You can use it comfortably at both vertical and horizontal levels. The only problem with the screen is the angle limitation - if you do not have the correct angle, you might have some difficulties in looking at the screen. Practically it means it is for only one person use (good for privacy bad for sharing) - if want to watch a romantic HD movie with a loved one, you need to put it to a long distance (such a win-win: you can both watch the movie and there is nothing between you & the loved one!).

It has 1GB ARM Cortex A8 processer (same with Samsung Galaxy Tab) but 256mb RAM (512mb at Samsung). It is neither fast, nor slow. Firmware upgrades can help to increase the performance and at normal system use around 100 mb is free. If you use android it is always a good idea to limit the use of widgets, as they are consuming so much power of the device. I know they are nice and using them is the nature of android but try to limit yourself with only the "must haves". In return, you are going to get a better performance.

I had high expectations from the Archos 101 from the many reviews on CNET and other review sites. When I finally got my hands on one of these, I was happy with the device in general, but was there were some issues which I could not accept and hence with a heavy heart I returned the item back last week.

The following are + and - of this device:
+1 Great looking, very lightweight and feels well-built.
+2 Has all the required codecs to play multimedia files.
+3 Wi-fi and USB connectivity is good. I have not been able to test the HDMI connectivity though.
+4 The screen has a decent resolution and is quite responsive to the touch (as its capacitive).
+5 Price - I got mine in december 2010 for £272 which is far less than the Samsung Galaxy Tab or iPAD

-1 The unit has a serious design flaw, which allows the inbuilt LI-ON battery to run down to 0% charge. Once the battery reaches 0%, it does not get charged again. I have tried a lot of CPR activities to bring the battery back to life (have also tried some posts in the archosfans website) but no use. As a result I have now returned my unit.
-2 There are some stability issues with Android 2.2 - In the few days that I owned this product, I do not recollect a singe day when I did not have to hard-reboot this device, as it frequently hangs/freezes.
-3 Battery does not last more than 3 hrs with standard stuff you would expect to do on this device (wi-fi, browsing, etc). I expect a tablet to last at least 8-10 hrs on a full charge.
-4 The charger connector does not fit well into the main device. On many occasions I saw that the charging had stopped despite the charger being connected. Not sure if this was a flaw only in the item that I received.

I've had the 101 for a couple of weeks now, and whilst I agree its not the most sturdy device around, light weight devices with large screens always demand to be handled with care. Treat it sensibly and I don't expect an issue. I bought this as no way was I shelling out for an iPad, beautiful though it is, so I expected this not to be quite as slick, and it isn't. However its perfectly usable and responsive and great for consulting the web and watching movies. It probably won't change your life but its near-instant on means you'll pick it up often and the desktop will get used less. The micro-sd card slot works a treat, and the USB host port allows plugging in of mouse, keyboard or usb memory stick. It's not quite as slick as an iPad but its half the cost and I'm happy that its good value.

Verified Purchase
Unfortunatley the one I ordered from Amazon arrived broke and had to be returned, the Amazon returns proceedure was very good but they had no more in stock so with the refund I managed to find one somewhere else.

Mines all updated with the latest firmware, Android 2.2. and flash 10.1 and Google market place installed as well as the Archos apps libary.

So far it works very well and is easy to set up. Video's and music are very good and the ability to stream from your PC hard drive is pretty good as well. Internet works well, but some embedded videos which use flash can be slightly jerky but Archos advise there is another firmware out soon to optimise flash.

The usb socket is good and I have been able to hook up my Sanyo video camera and Canon SLR and view the videos and pictures on them.

While it's not quite as slick as an Ipad its a lot closer than Apple would like you to believe and the ability to handle a multitude of video/audio file formats, plus the memory card slot and USB ports with the lower price make it a very serious contender.
