Ooooold tablet, bad specs, quite overpriced.

256MB ram (which will be near useless these days)
800MHz CPU (very slow)
Android 2.1 (lots of apps won't run on an old OS)
800x480 screen (about as low as tablets get)
8GB storage (probably enough for most people, with added microSD storage as well)

Really, even just for kids this will be terrible.
horrible machine
avoid this tablet, was very bad when I bought it a while back
Depends how much you hate your kids.
It's worth £20 at a stretch...certainly not worth more...unless you're a sentimental nut job !

I'd still not buy one though. Tried one years back and it's utter shizer. Resistive screen is worse than the Archos 5 that I still have.
Had bad experience from Archos customer support over a warranty repair on an Archos 5.

Item should have covered by warranty so I went through their rma rigmarole and sent it to their repair department to have the faulty charge connector repaired.

Archos wouldn't honour the warranty, because I'd got it at a discount which they claimed was unrealistically low.
Instead they wanted £160 for a new mainboard.
When I told them I wasn't prepared to pay, they ripped the connector right off the board before sending it back, just to ensure it could never be repaired.

I will never buy an Archos product again, and wouldn't recommend them to anybody.

I did manage to sell a lot of the bits on ebay though - so at least 4 other people didn't get ripped off as a result.
