I bought one of these yesterday from the carphone warehouse as I thought it would be quite handy for me when I am on the train- the ebook app really appeals to me.
So I have ordered it and I am waiting for it to be delivered.
But as I always do when I order things like this, I then go and watch videos on youtube. The reviews all seem good so that isn't an issue my worry is that when the tablet is turned the screen doesn't turn with it.

Therefore when reading an E-book you can't turn it so you are holding it lengthways.
Some videos show the screen turning and others do not.
I am a little confused as I know there is an Archos 7 home tablet and an archos 7c home tablet.

Does anyone have one and can you help clear my little issue up?

Thanks in advance.

I ordered one yesterday but if doesn't look good http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/spammed-archos-7-cpw-thread/946115

It looks like its the Archos 7 they'll be sending out which is not as good as the Archos 7c which they advertised
#2
on my order confirmation it says archos 7c???

You'll either need to call them to find out or wait and see what they send. They have even changed it from the 7c on their website.

yes I have noticed that. although to start with I don't remember seeing 7c??
I just want it to have the rotating screen so I can use it as an e-reader.

Did you use quidco? If so what did it track at? As the website states that its £15 for tablets but I have a feeling we are going to get screwed on that as well

Yes, Mine tracked at £3 something. :( Too early to raise a ticket yet as well.

That would be great. If you could let us know as soon as you get a chance to play with it it would be great. I was just about to call them and cancel but I will wait to see what you say first and if the order gets despatched before I cancel I will just return it.

No probs..........i'm just hoping it comes before school pick up time. Would be just my luck that when i have to go and get the kids DHL would turn up.

There's a screenshot here if anyone needs proof of it - HERE

Also I've heard that it is the Archos 7 V2 they'll be sending but no confirmation of anyone receiving it yet
#11
well the v2 is ok but I will not be happy if it is the 7 version especially as my confirmation email says 7c
#12
just got mine delivered, I am a bit confused now,as the receipt in the package says archos 7 v2 ,but the product itself on its box only say archos 7 home tablet.
What's about yours? Have you got yours the same as mine? I am a bit upset now, as in the email it say archo 7c..... not sure whether I should return it or not...
#13
if you open it and give it a go can you let us know what it is like? Does the screen rotate if you turn it on its side like an iphone/ipad does.
#14
by the way I thinhk the version 2 will have android 2.2 on it version 1 had 1.5
#15
By the way, just found out that on the side of the box, above the series code, it says A7 home tablet v2 8gb EU/US...
banned#16
I wouldn't mind if they cancelled mine or contacted me to ask if I wanted the 7 v2 instead but sending out an item which I haven't ordered is as good as stealing. Imagine ordering an ipad 2 and receiving an ipad 1.

Does anyone know if any of the shops actually stock the 7c? If so I'm going to go in with the 7 v2 and demand an exchange :)
#17
can you let me know about the screen?im so obsessed with it cause I need to use it as an ebook reader and would like the screen to rotate as if I am holding an actual book!
#18
i just came off the phone to them and the lady said that the one that is being sent out to me is the v2.
[mod]#19
Not sounding good then. My doorbell just went...............was shoes for the wife. lol

Won't be keeping it if it's the v2. Apparently the screen doesn't rotate on it either.
#20
well, It looks all right when you open it. Have to charge the battery before use as required...
[mod]#21
I've now read it does have a g-sensor screen and does rotate...........god knows. lol

However, still won't want it...........hate resistive screens which the v2 has and the 7c is capacitive.
#22
I thought the 7c was the V2?

No, the 7c is the new one that only came out in the US last month. Capacitive screen and a few other extras i think were added.
#24
ah right, well as long as it does what I want and the touch screen seems ok then I may stick with it.
It is a shame they have cocked up though.

DHL not been yet and off to school shortly so looks likely i'll miss it.

FYI

Just found out from Directgov site

If you've been sent the wrong item or the item is faulty, you can return it and ask for your money back. In these cases the seller must cover the cost of returning the items.

So CPW will have to cover the cost of returning the Archos
#28
Ordered one yesterday (confirmation email says 7c), but now I just discovered this thread. The price is not too bad for v2, but it really is not what I wanted. I did think this was too good to be true...

I was surprised that there wasn't more people in the original CPW thread going for this as it was advertised as the 7c but I think everyone was preoccupied by the ipad and samsung tab. I did think it would be the 7c for that price because when you look at some of the other price drops of items they are actually sending out the drop can be about £200
#30
I spoke to them and they said that even if you have used it you can take it back within 14 days so that isn't an issue.
If I am happy with it, even if it isnt the 7c then I will keep it but I will have to try it first to see how it is.
So for those of you who have had yours what do you make of it?
banned#31
brettytopbanana - You should ask on thye original deal thread as a few people have it and are using it
[mod]#32
Just got back and neighbour took mine in..........as per everyone else it's the v2. I'll ring tomorrow to arrange a return.
banned#33
You going to try it out? I'm tempted to keep mine if its any good if I try it out and its alright. But I'll try get a partial refund since 1. Quidco isn't tracking properly and 2. they are sending the wrong item.

If I don't want it I'm going to make them organise a collection as I'm not going to waste my time dropping it into a store

That's a good idea..........i may give that a try as well. I'll unpack it tonight and give it a whirl and then ring tomorrow to try and get some money back if it's ok. lol

please let me know what you make of it?!!!!!! I am desperate to find out!

It's ok. Bit on the slow side and the screen being resistive is a bit of a pain as you find yourself stabbing at it a bit from time to time. You'll be pleased to know that the screen does indeed rotate.

If you want it for reading eBooks, the odd bit of browsing and a game of Angry Birds from time to time then at £75 it's a bargain and does the job no problem.

I'm going to keep mine as it will do for the kids to watch youtube and movies on. However i did manage to make it freeze last night when i started flying around everywhere on it so steady as she goes with it. :)
#37
ah excellent. If it does all those things well enough then I may well keep it. I mean when I am on the train I wont be able to browse the web but I still look forward to using it as a book reader. Will have to see how it goes. I hear the screen is pretty decent on it in terms of quality?

Yes, the screen isn't bad at all. Not near the iPad etc but more than good enough. Video looked good that i played last night. :)

thats the thing to remember. It is no ipad but I am sure it will do the job for me just fine.

Exactly. I used to have a iPad and it drove me mad as it was a fingerprint magnet and a bit too big to be carrying round everywhere. There was nothing amazing that it could do that a basic tab can't do........the only real plus points were the screen quality and battery life. In the end i sold it as it was more a toy than a useful everyday item for me.
