On paper, the Archos 101 Magnus Plus had it all, bringing together a multimedia tablet with loads of storage and a high definition screen. However, the hit-and-miss optimization, the mediocre...

Large storage capacity
Fusion Storage with a microSD card (quick insertion of large files possible)
Full HD resolution
Many connections
Quality video player
Poor screen brightness reflection
Glass too far from the touchscreen panel
Yellowish tinge on screen

Wall charger too limiting
