It looks good but being reading reports of it feeling a bit plasticy. Going to see if I can get my hands on one to look.
Apparently Customer services is non existent as well. ( French)...............

never had to use customer services mate so dont know about that , kirstys is quite heavy/solid and feels really well made mate the only negative would be the wee built in stand thingy on the back thats a tad flimsy but as its not something we use it makes no difference

my local tesco stock them so maybe your local tesco does too mate just pop down and have a look there

Got a Archos 101 IT last year - managed to persuade work to buy me one. Can't fault it at all. Plays anything I throw at it and streams vids & music from my home PC using UPNP no problems. Very solid and in my opinion way better value than an Ipad.
