7 Reasons For

One Industry Award

This Archos tablet computer received a "Value for Money" award from Play3r.net who thought that this tablet computer was good value for money.

Reasonably Priced

A number of Archos 97B Titanium reviewers who reviewed it mentioned that it was good value for money. Play3r.net wrote in their review of this tablet “With me today I have another tablet offered by Archos, in particular the Element Series Titanium 97b which is a 9.7 inch tablet at a very affordable price”. Four years ago expert website Techstrike.co.uk wrote “Today Techstrike is looking at the reasonably priced Archos Titanium 97b” in their review of the Archos 97B Titanium but even so they rated it 50 out of 100. Techstrike.co.uk also mentioned “The Archos Titanium 97b tablet is priced at £189.99”.

A few Archos 97B Titanium reviewers who purchased the product reckoned that it was a bargain for the price. Pcadvisor.co.uk mentioned in their Archos 97B Titanium review on expert review site PC Advisor.co.uk “The Archos 97b Titanium is a cheap and not so cheerful Android 9in tablet”. Four years ago expert website Itproportal.com wrote “Much as we'd like to hail it as a bargain basement iPad killer, we can't” in their Archos 97B Titanium review yet they only gave the product a score of 3 stars.

Robust

A few Archos 97B Titanium reviewers who reviewed the Archos 97B Titanium reckoned that it was well made. Expert website Itproportal.com said in their review “The 97b Titanium is an attractive and well-built tablet with a great high resolution screen.”. Techstrike.co.uk wrote “Attractive and solidly built”. Techstrike.co.uk also said “Only 8GB of built, in storage”.

Good Value for Money

Play3r.net highlighted in their review that this RK3066 processor tablet computer provided a good bang for your buck.

Fairly High Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

Across all the comparable spec tablet computers that came out around the same time as the 97B Titanium the rear camera resolution (numeric)s range from 2MP to 5MP, and the average rear camera resolution (numeric) is 2.8MP. At 5 megapixels, the Archos 97B Titanium has a fairly high rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other RK3066 processor tablets that were released more than two years ago.

There are a number of alternative 5MP rear camera resolution tablets currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Kruger & Matz KM1060G[plb_3072999_price].

7 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Five experts from sites including PC Advisor.co.uk, gadgetspeak.com, itproportal.com and play3r.net have rated this tablet on average 63 out of 100. If all the similar spec tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years are ranked by average expert review score then this RK3066 processor tablet computer is in the bottom 25%.

Archos Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Tablets

Archos has poor average reviews for its RK3066 processor tablets as well as across its entire tablet range compared to other brands.

Poor Battery Life

One customer concluded that this tablet did not have a good battery life. Techstrike.co.uk scored it 3 stars and mentioned “Poor battery life” in their Archos 97B Titanium review.

Inferior Sound Quality

One customer said in their reviews that the product did not have good sound quality. Four years ago expert review site Itproportal.com wrote “The speakers are poor”.

Not 4G

Most RK3066 processor tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the 97B Titanium are not 4G. The 97B Titanium is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

If you would prefer a tablet that is 4G then you might want to consider the ODYS Study Tab[plb_2082047_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3G

Most tablet computers of a comparable type and age to the 97B Titanium are not 3G. The 97B Titanium is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.

Tablet computers which are 3G that might also be worth considering include the Leotec L-Pad Sattelite 9.7[plb_2089805_price], or the Kruger & Matz KM1060G[plb_3072999_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

At only 8 gigabytes, the 97B Titanium has a quite small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other RK3066 processor tablets that have been available for a comparable time to the 97B Titanium. The internal storage capacitys of tablet computers of a comparable spec and age to the 97B Titanium range from 8GB to 16GB.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 8GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available including the Point of View Mobii 1325[plb_1552151_price], the 3Q RC0722C Surf[plb_1670143_price], or the Archos 70b Titanium[plb_1938127_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Leotec L-Pad Sattelite 9.7[plb_2089805_price] (16GB) which also has a higher rating.

4 Other reasons to consider the Archos 97B Titanium

Released Over Four Years Ago

Average Processor Frequency

At 1.6 gigahertz, the 97B Titanium has a fairly standard processor frequency compared to most of the other RK3066 processor tablets that have been available for more than two years.

We compared all the other 1.6GHz processor clock speed tablet computers to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Mobii 1325[pl_1552151_price], and the Mobii 1325[pl_1552152_price] both from Point of View or the 3Q RC0722C Surf[plb_1670143_price] is also worth considering.

Average Display Diagonal

The 97B Titanium has a fairly typical display diagonal (9.7 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the 97B Titanium.

Alternative 9.7" tablet computers currently available which you might want to look at include the Leotec L-Pad Sattelite 9.7[plb_2089805_price], or the 3Q RC9731[plb_3067632_price] which has better reviews.

If this tablet computer display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the Kruger & Matz KM1060G[plb_3072999_price] (10.1") which is also higher rated.

Two Processor Coress

Compared to the other eight RK3066 processor tablets that came out around the same time as the 97B Titanium that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the 97B Titanium is a two processor cores tablet computer which is average.

There are a number of alternative 2 processor cores tablets currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the 80 XS[pl_1815219_price], or the 70b Titanium[pl_1938127_price] both from Archos or the 3Q RC0722C Surf[plb_1670143_price].
