    Quick question.

    I got the Sylvania on black Friday. But I noticed at best buy this week the Archos 7 is on sale for 179.99. Should I keep the Sylvania or return it and get the Archos. I just recently got into the tablets so I am not sure the difference.

    Thanks for the help.

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    Run do not walk away from the Archos 7HT. It is a nice oversized PMP. This is coming from someone who has ( wait for it, count em)
    Archos 404, 504, 604
    Archos 605
    Archos A5A/500, 7HT
    Archos 101/16
    So that is right friends and neighbors I have an addiction to Archos. BUT I will say except for my 101, they were all refurbs or returns.
    The Archos 7HT is limited in so many ways
    CPU- RockChip 2808
    Android - 1.5
    Storage- 8Gb
    About the Slowest Boot device I have
    Cannot upgrade in any way
    Fair B/G card
    Good Battery Life and decent Audio/Video is the best thing I can say.
    Others might say better things about it, But it was the wrong product at the wrong time by Archos. Go for the Sylvania and accept a middlin' tablet. But it has a better update path. The Archos is worth $150, and I will continue to say that. It is not worth 199, 189, 179, 170 or even 160

    But that is just my opinion.

    over all if you're willing to tinker a little (ugly market hack.... no recovery ie clockwork, amonra, etc....) and don't need a g-sensor the sylvania is solid device. i'm happy with mine :)
