Pros:

  • Low price for a 10-inch slate, Good display quality, Excellent multimedia apps
  • Easily one of the best video players I've had the opportunity to use on a tablet, Such a low price point for a decent tablet will encourage more people to jump on the tablet bandwagon, The “kick stand” on the rear of the G9 is perfect for watching movies
  • Good value at £269.99, cheaper than most of its rivals, meaty specs with powerful CPU and reasonable RAM, wide-ranging video support covers almost every format ...

Cons:

  • Cheap look and feel, No rear camera, Poor recording quality from front-facing camera
  • Only 512 MB of RAM really means that performance takes a hit at times, The button placement is extremely awkward, and the outer casing is a bit bigger than it really needs to be, While the 3G Stick is a great idea, it would have been nice to see it come s

The G9 101 is not without some niggling annoyances but it still represents decent value if you want a tablet that plays HD video in any format. The stand and 3G dongle are simple ideas that make the G9 rather versatile too. The only reason I can’t...

Movie fans who want to enjoy their passion on the move will enjoy the 101 G9’s ability to play almost any video software. But with disappointing battery life, plasticky build quality and lack of rear-facing snapper, it is never going to rival the...

If you’re all about the mobile movie experience this is one of the best tablets out there, and it’s reasonably cheap too. But poor battery life and a plastic feel means it’s no iPad 2 killer...

For multimedia consumers this tablet could work very well. We think the optional 3G dongle is a great idea, and we also like the option to buy a 250GB version. The build quality is a concern though, and that headphone socket is unforgivable....

What do you want from a tablet? It's a question that many reviews want you to ask yourself before invariably buying an iPad 2, but it's a question that's particularly relevant to the Archos 101 G9. That's because Archos has focused on media playback...

We expected a revolution from Archos but didn't really get it, especially as the recent Galaxy Tab and Sony S releases show up some of the 101 G9 faults for what they are. All the same, this generation is definitely an improvement, with both a longer...

Archos's new range of Android tablets has landed. The Archos G9 101 takes over from the original Archos 101, predictably enough, but positively obliterates its father on the features front - while maintaining a very similar RRP. Is it too good to be...

The Archos 101 G9 is a dual-core, Android 3.2 tablet with a 10 inch high resolution screen for under £250, that in itself is impressive. Of course this does mean that there are areas of the unit which are not quite up to the standard of more...
