I bought this model from B&H due to its availability over amazon's. I love the 250 GB model as I prefer to have the capacity for all of my favorite applications, videos, and music on my tablets without having to switch the SD cards with the smaller capacity models. There are vast improvements over the Archos 70 250 G model which I also own. I would share some of the observations here :

Initial Setup

It is pretty easy to run the setup as it navigates you through the steps the first time we powered it on. I ran into issues of not being able to connect to my home Wifi when I went through the initial setup. After I downloaded the latest firmware updates to my desktop and did a manual upgrade to the Archos 80 G9, everything ran fine. Interestingly, I ran into the same networking issues with the Archos 70. The instruction for upgrading the firmware manually is available on the Archos support website.

Display and Sound

The display is much nicer 70 with a brighter screen and better viewing angle as compared to the Archos. However, it still does not match the quality of the more popular tablets like the Kindle Fire and Asus Transformer which I also own. The unit's speaker produces adequate volume but the quality is not great. I have no problem with the multi-touch screen and it seems to be quite sensitive. The Archos 80 G9 250 GB model weighs 23 oz vs 15 oz for the Archos 70, quite a bit heavier in comparison.

System and stability

This Turbo version runs pretty fast and is quite noticeable when we run multiple applications including surfing on the internet. It is still not very stable as I occasionally had applications frozen which required a forced stop.

My Archos tablet sould not hold a charge after 6 months of owning it. After contacting Archos to have it replaced UNDER WARRANTY, it took 3 months to resolve it. I will NEVER buy another Archos product again. EVER. It's one thing to sell an inferior product at half the price, but this is pretty expensive to be so terrible. And then to top it off with the worst support that I've ever experienced? Noooooo way...

I read all the reviews before purchasing this product, and took the gamble that most people who decide to write reviews are driven to do so by a bad experience, and that not everyone who had a good experience posted a review.

I owned the Archos 101 before purchasing this product, with the 16GB flash memory. At the time it was awesome compared to other tablets because of its file compatibility. It was a little slow, and at times non-responsive, but I could get past that because the USB port allowed me to use an external hard drive, meaning I wasn't limited by the small internal memory. With this new one, I'm not limited by a small memory, it's touch screen and OS are significantly better, and I have full Play Store access, unlike the 101. This means Netflix, etc. which is fantastic. It's also a lot beefier than the 101. Where the 101 was very light, and made of cheap plastic (I dropped it on the corner from about 6 inches up and the corner cracked), this one doesn't feel that way. I'm sure if dropped it would react in a similar fashion, but it feels stronger. This is in large part due to the heavy hard drive inside it, but I don't care where it comes from, I feel more confident carrying this around.

I installed a firmware update yesterday, which I'm sure had some bug fixes, but I haven't had time to check it out, so the problems are all prior to any update.

The hard drive does run a little slower than flash memory, obviously, and this has only been noticeable when listening to music. If you go to skip a song, it takes 3-4 seconds to load the next one. Not too much of a problem. It does also have a problem with corrupted video files.

I originally bought this because my music collection was choking the harddrive of my laptop, my Ipod was also filling up, and I was interested in seeing what all the tablet brouhaha was about.

Takes quite a while to transfer files, and the file manager is unintuitive and offers no search function, but that's besides the point because that's not what most people use it for.

I haven't used it much as a tablet because the battery life is pretty atrocious. On a long bus/plane trip, it has enough juice (fully charged, with wifi and gyroscope off, screen just bright enough to be legible, and volume down low enough to be audible, only running the video program) to play a movie and a half. With the screen off, it lasts about twice that long, but why for the love of God would you not just use an mp3 player at a quarter the size?

I don't know if all tablets are like this or just this one, but it can't charge through USB, it needs to be plugged into 120V mains. AND when I run it while plugged in, the battery DRAINS! I was watching a Netflix movie a few days ago while charging, and it shut itself down due to low battery. I let it charge back up, and ran the same program while watching the battery monitor, and sure enough wall power isn't enough to counteract the drain.

As I said in the title, I feel bad complaining, since it performs the only function I wanted (be a compromise between a new ipod and a new harddrive) well enough, but it is frustrating that there's so much potential that I can't access unless I'm attached to mains power, and also willing to turn it off every hour or so to let the battery catch its breath.
