soviet123, I think you can see who the trolls are now. If someone hates a company, and vows never to buy their product again, why don't they just move on, and get a life. In almost any other forum these trolls would be banned for life.
I really had to say something about this DAMN, I bought the A5A, and after 20 minutes I had enough of it, I had the 402, gmini 500, 605, and even the old A5, they worked all fine, but the even then the A5 took almost a year to let it work almost bug free. I never ever said something about Archos but after my experience with the A5, and now the A5A, It's CRAP, and stop defending something that shouldn't be defended!!!! DAMN DAMN DAMN
I don't hate Archos, but what they released now is unacceptable, I gave it a change, but after a night of hanging, crashing etc... I was fed up by Archos, one year with the A5 was already enough, not again.... and other people beeing fed up by it isn't strange we are not buying a 50 dollar device here, we are talking about more than 300... so you may expect at least something for that.
Even Microsoft OS wasn't that buggy, remember Windows 95 when it was released, buggy yes.... but this buggy? no way, and the updates kept coming, even after 3 years updates were still there. even HTC isn't that bad, with updates.
I really don't have a problem when a company stops updating devices when a new one arrives, but when the old still have some bugs you are DAMN obligated to at least fix those one's and then move on... not one second earlier.
I get so sick of those people that get a hard one just by hearing the name Archos, I like those devices as well... but be objective, they aren't treating the customers nicely.... Archos should be glad people are complaining.... when they stop doing that, that's the moment Archos should really be worried, because then people will not be bothered anymore and move on, and never buy an Archos ever again.
And do we want that? NOOOO because ARchos devices are great if they are less less buggy, but Archos should get their crap together and start fixing those bugs, If I can spot these things in the A5A in 20 minutes... what the hell is the Test department doing then??? reading a book or something? or eating there lunch all day?
