"Very happy with it."4.0 starson by prodygii
Pros: FLASH; actually like the smaller 7 inch size compared to the 10 inch, I use it a lot for reading ebooks; lots of apps and personalization options; adobe flash 10.2;
Cons: steep learning curve, for me anyway; wasn't happy with it right out of the box, but once I learned my way around it, and got the google market on it, I started liking it more and more;
Summary: Love it now, but, I was NOT happy with it when I first got it. I bought to be sort of an upgrade for an ebook reader I had (that broke), and when I first received it I couldn't even figure out how to get any of my books on it. I had never used an android device before, and this device needs a lot of personal set-up. Was NOT good out-of-the-box, in my opinion.I'm not sure if I would still recommend this tablet as strongly as before now that Google Honeycomb is out. The Archos firmware can't upgrade to honeycomb, so it's probably going to get left behind quicker and quicker as time goes on. But, I'm still enjoying mine, and I would still recommend it as a starter tablet (or one to just mess around with). Good for the price.
But the device runs great. I've had it freeze up a few times on me, but a nice feature for me was the fact that the real power button on the side can be held down for 10 seconds or so to restart the device, and that has always solved any problems I had. And it starts up pretty fast.
I've had it 6 months now, and haven't had any serious problems with it (as I said earlier, I haven't had any problems other than it occasionally freezing up on me). I would recommend it. Especially for the price. You do need to have some basic "computer sense" though (which is basically just being willing to spend the time making mistakes, sometimes searching the internet for answers, and mostly just knowing how to follow directions). Not for someone that doesn't know how to figure stuff out, or someone not willing to try to figure things out. I guess having some experience with an android device would help a lot. But for someone with the time and know how to get the device to work the way you want, it's pretty darn good.
