    Review: $159 APAD (eBay) and $199 Anchos 7 (Amazon)

    I bought both of them.

    The $159 APAD from eBay is a POS. Screen is very dim. I cannot hear the speaker unless I held it next to my ear. Processor is completely slow. Touch screen is non-responsive. Running Android 1.5 but I got all full Market and everything else 1.5 has to offer. My feeling is they just put together something really cheap that barely run the OS. But it is completely useless.

    Conclusion: Don't buy it.


    The $199 is a much better tablet. It's a lot brighter, sound is a lot louder. Processor is faster. However, they both use the resistive touch screen that is mostly useless. Running Android 1.5 but you don't get Market, Google Map, Gmail, and everything regular. Also, you can only use it in wide mode. Cannot rotate.

    Conclusion: Don't buy it.

    You need to figure out how to root the Archos so can get gapps on there and upgrade the OS.
