Review submitted for Archos 70 8 GB Internet Tablet with Android (ARC708GB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Fragile screen
Other Comments: I liked this unit but never even got to explore it's uses because it broke after one week of having it. It wasn't dropped or hit, the screen just cracked and is not covered by warranty.Buyer beware the lcd screens are not covered at all and cost almost as much as buying another unit to replace. Zero stars for this product.
