GOOD:
1. The size is perfect for me. I like the 'page format' of this tablet. Other Android screen size is perfect for movies but lack usability on 'document size' pdf or doc's.
2. External USB 2.0 is great. I like the ability to plug in a thumb drive or external hard drive and have access to it.
3. ISC(Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3) is a good and bad. The good is it is ICS (bad later).
4. Fast charge when needed (average charge time is about 3 hours).
5. Can use some iPad or iPad2 cases. Camera on back is issue as well as buttons but there are work arounds.

BAD:
1. They screwed up! The partition for installing app is only 500meg and over 13gig as SD_CARD. Some things can be moved there and stored and run from there but if you are an APP HOG you will get about a few installed then you will be very upset. (They are suppose to be working modifying the size but for try Android lovers this will be a big upset).
2. Speakers are not that great. If you have headphones use them!
3. Screen brightness and clarity are good but it can give a flat look to images sometimes.
4. MicroSD does not have a cover. You are not careful you can hit it and have it eject and fall out.
5. ISC from above. While it says 4.0.3 there are many apps that will not install or work correctly. Chrome is one (you would think Google Android and Google Chrome would be a natural!) I hope when they resolve the partition issue I hope they will juice it a bit to run some REAL ICS apps.
6. 1 GIG memory and 1 GIG single core processor is a year or more behind the curve. I would have loved a dual or quad 1.5 with 2 GIG memory.

I personally love this tablet. It has some great features and is really nice looking. First of all it runs ics which is an awesome operating system. It has an hd screen, and a rear and front facing camera. The cameras aren't to spectacular but why would you take a picture with a tablet any way. It is very fast browser and has 16gb of storage. The only complaints I would have are the battery life and no Bluetooth.

I was disappointed to find out that the actual RAM is 500MB and NOT 1GB as advertised.
The system is slow and never has sufficient space to install any apps.

This tablet is nicely built. While it's sold as a low end tablet, the IPS screen is quiet nice, and it comes with GPS. The biggest problem with this tablet is the storage partition. The internal storage which is default location for the apps, has only 512mb. This is extremely small. Even though most apps can be moved to the partition labeled as "SD-Card", the apps still requires a portion of the space in the internal storage partition. Also, the download and installation steps must take place in the internal storage first. When the internal storage falls below the required size by the particular app, the installation will fail.

Unless Archos changes this, and or if you plan on having a very small amount of apps, it's not worth considering this device.

I bought this tablet for my aunt and she is very satisfied. The display and touchscreen respond well and the processor speed is fast. My only complaint would be the sound. It is rather muffled and I haven't figured out if it can be configured to be clearer and louder.

Fast forward four months and the tablet is showing the black screen of death. It just won't switch on. The charging light is working but we can see nothing on the screen.

Extremely slow and kept shutting down on me. Definitely regret this purchase. Oh, and it freezes up a lot too.

Here's my backstory: my local store (Micro Center) had a boxed Archos 97 Carbon (9.7 inch Android ICS tablet) on sale for $99.99 on 10/28/13. And it was one of the rare times Amazon didn't beat the price. So I zoomed to get it. After a couple of weeks of using this tablet, I asked myself "Am I happy?" Yes, with a few conditions.

I was looking for a replacement to my previous 7-inch tablet (Lenovo Ideapad A2107). The battery life and speed on that tablet was great, but I was hampered by its' inability to recognize Bluetooth keyboards and limited screen size. This tablet looks great on paper in 2012. It's pretty decently built, with a good weight and average system responsiveness. It feels good to hold for an extended amount of time, and has a very bright screen.

Now, as previous comments mentioned, the allotment for Google Play apps is very miniscule out of the box. My first action was to address this (there are ways if you do the research...), and to test its' overall functionality. This took a couple of hours, but was well worth it to be able to add more than a few programs at a time. I noticed some lag between newer programs (Candy Crush Saga is a little sluggish), but also noticed decent latency for music production programs like Caustic. I've tried several different types of network-dependent programs (including streaming video via YouTube) and haven't experienced the Wi-Fi issues people have talked about. All of the standards work well.

What makes this tablet only "great" instead of "outstanding" are the product characteristics that create some unique challenges. There is a slave USB port for plugging in Flash drives, mice, keyboards, and the like, but it isn't compatible with my MIDI keyboard.
