Archos' 10.1-inch tablet — the largest of the pack — falls in-between its other two price-wise, oddly enough. It's $269.99, making it far less expensive than the $399 Nexus 10 and the $549.99 Note 10.1. But the 101 Platinum makes even more tradeoffs than its siblings: it's thicker and heavier than its competitors, has a far lower resolution, and should also be far from the finest performer.

Despite these cheap and not-so-cheerful materials, the Archos 101 Platinum isn't what you'd call a lightweight device. In fact, at 636g it's only slightly lighter than the 652g iPad 4 with its rock-solid build and metallic rear cover. It's a fair bit heavier than the 603g Nexus 10 and excellent 469g iPad Air, too.

The 10.1-inch screen offers a little over a basic HD resolution with 1,200x800 pixels. It can be bright and it's nice and sharp with small print on websites and detail in pictures alike. It's not among the very best but it's perfectly decent for the price.
