Just to let you guys know, and warn you not to get the Archos 97 Titanium HD, it's that bad, i don't know what to do with it. i will try to sell it as a second hand and loose money on it. i bought it 5 days ago....

 

the problems with this device:

1. WIFI is very very slow and reception almost doesn't exists ! you will not be able to get a signal farther than 3m from the router.

 

2. HD ? Retina ? are you kidding me the device is on Normal mode (half of retina res.) and works sort of OK but still not as fast as expected from a dual core 1.6GHZ CPU with quad core GPU !- SHAME on you Archos.

Putting the device in HD mode, Forget about it, your device will flicker like hell and the lags becomes epic !

 

IMHO, the worst is the Archos knows about this and doesn't issue a recall or a solution to their customers. this is definitely the last time i will buy Archos for me they are a bunch of thieves because they know about their defective product and they keep selling it.

 

I feel like it's my obligation to post this message in all the relevant forums, to warn other suckers from falling in Archos trap.

 

Let me know what you think about this device, i'm going to the store tomorrow and will try to give it back.

"IPAD killer" really ?

Well, we also had a rather bad user experience with the ARCHOS 97 Titanium HD, we made some comments in this forum section about the horrible WiFI, bad performance and flickering in HD mode (see also our review)

We also have published a few videos that clearly demonstrate the problems.

 

Definitely not a product we recommend to buy, there are tons of other possibilities with better performance in the same prices (Allwinner A31 or RK3188 based tablets)

 

Cheers.
