I just got this and after charging like they said (until light blinks) my tablet won't turn on. Any suggestions? I gave it 4 stars if it works as advertised because it looks good as an ornament anyway.
Bought my A101 IT directly from Archos when they first released it. Fortunately Archos is very diligent in releasing firmware upgrades to address initial issues.
It really shines where Archos has so many years of experience - as a multimedia device. The software/hardware performs flawlessly in viewing pictures (I connect my Nikon D3100 directly to download), watching movies/videos at 720p and as a music player.
