Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood


    The Archos 5 Internet tablet/portable media player offers a large, high-resolution touch-screen display, Wi-Fi, music playback, photos, Flash video and game compatibility, Bluetooth, e-mail, a Web browser, a built-in speaker, an integrated kickstand, GPS, and support for a limited selection of Android applications.


    GPS signal reception is poor enough to make the feature useless; many popular Android apps are unsupported; Flash video support is hit or miss; no multitouch support for keyboard or gestures; text copy and paste is a chore; and the glossy design shows fingerprints.


    The Archos 5 is a great video player, but it disappoints as a premium Android Internet tablet and GPS unit.

Archos 5H Internet Tablet Review

Good product with a lot of features of a small computer. I purchased the 500 gigabyte hard drive version of the Archos 5H IT. Lots of storage but the HD wears the battery down faster. Tablets are probably best with solid state storage that really doesn't detract much from their intended mobile function. Lots of APPs for the android processor but not as many as the Apple IPOD and IPAD. The Archos 5H is not as intuitive as the Apple products so I would only recommend it for experienced users of PCs. A few days of exploration with the tablet will bring out it's impressive applications and capability.

Solid high quality player with all the trimmings

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great little player. Massive memory that holds everything on my PC with great features all integrated into the unit. GPS $40 extra to enable, plays many different kinds of movie formats(mkv, avi, mp4 etc..) and FM transmitter.
Love this unit. My best player to date and I use it everyday.

Great little toy!

I like that I can record television but the clarity isnt as good, I also like the games and things but I cant seem to get an app that allows me to view youtube or other videos.
