Is it worth the money ?
Selling for about 79€ in various stores across Europe, it is cheap. Still, we think you can find better devices for the same price from different Chinese manufacturers. Unless you want to have the exclusive Archos Media Center apps, it is better to spend your money on something else. From Archos there is also the 70b Titanium tablet which is slightly more expensive, but offers a better display, processor, 1GB of RAM and HDMI out.
