I would be a bit cautious about buying one of these (I have owned one).
Yes, it's basically quite a good tablet, especially for the new price. I was very happy with it.... at first.
After about three months, the USB host port is highly likely to fail. (google it). At the same time the tablet will stop being able to go into sleep mode and every time you're done using it you will have to shut it down and reboot it when you want to use it again. Or, it may start endlessly rebooting during use.
The cause (as I understand it from the various threads) appears to be an internal component which fails prematurely. Archos seem to be in some sort of denial about the problem and, should you send the unit in for repair, you may be waiting for a very long time. I waited six weeks for it to be fixed by Archos, before getting a refund from Micro Anvika (who were very good about the whole thing). There have also been some pretty negative comments about the quality of Archos support and repair services, with users reporting rude and/or technically incompetent support staff and units returned unrepaired.
The speakers apparently are also known for fairly high failure rates (I imagine the power amplifier that drives them is failing, not the speakers).
At any rate, it looks like Archos got some engineering calculations wrong or have major quality control issues. Buyer beware....
