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.

I have the 5 with 16GB and a 48 with the 500GB hard drive. I recently let my nephew use my Archos 48, he asked me to get a similar tablet for him.
small enough to go anywhere.
good selection of apps using the apslib app.
good battery life.
Android 1.6 works well and has a good feature set.
older unit uses 1.6 with no upgrades.
cannot use google play.
new apps not made for the older units.
Small size leads to some miss typing on occasion.
Overall a great small go anywhere tablet for email and basic web surfing. I found all the apps I needed within the Appslib app, but Appslib does not have all the apps available that Google play has. Battery life is better than I thought it would be, and the tablet operational speed is acceptable. Charging the battery is slower than I expected.
I bought the archos mainly because it has a great amount of memory. I like this product because it has enough memory to fit my needs, it has web, and i can watch movies on it. I didnt like this product because it's web experience is not the pleasing. other than that this prouduct is amazing.
I got one used one i din't like it i got for mail use for surf web mp3 plus navigation but internet can not get ip address navigator you have to purchase for use it mp3 is okay low sound battery life is suck

The Archos 5 IT is perfect for watching downloaded videos or ripped DVDs, very good battery life, I use it for my toddler and it helps on long flights!
