6 Reasons Against

Poor Owner Reviews

Owners have rated this tablet computer on average 56 out of 100.

Archos Only Has Poor Tablet Computer Reviews

Archos has poor average reviews for its A31 processor tablets as well as across its entire tablet computer range.

Not 4G

Most tablets that are a similar age to the 97 Platinum HD are not 4G. The Archos 97 Platinum HD is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

Chart Edit

Not 3G

Most A31 processor tablets that were launched more than two years ago are not 3G. The 97 Platinum HD is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.

The slowest processor frequency of A31 processor tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the 97 Platinum HD is 1GHz, the fastest is 1.5GHz, and the average processor frequency is 1.1GHz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1GHz processor clock speed tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Archos 80 Platinum.

If you would prefer a faster processor frequency then you might also want to consider the Leotec L-Pad Supernova S (1.2GHz), the Brigmton BTPC-1014QCHD (1.2GHz), or the TenGO Induce 101 (1.2GHz) which is also higher rated.
