I bought the 5IT in Oct 2009 and lived through the bad media and user review and plentiful supply.
It's interesting now to be living through the Gen8 release with great reviews and at least for the 101 and 70 very little supply in the USA at least for now.
Someday I'll get my 101 and 70 and be able to contribute more. For now, I'm really happy for Archos and us, and I realize the Gen7 is what gave Archos the experience to develop the Gen8s.
For Gen7 Archos developers, mainly nz, spent a lot of time listening to members of ArchosFans.com Support Forum and the results showed as the 5IT became better with each of its numerous updates. So, its nice to see nz with us again for the Gen8s helping us to fine tune excellent tablets into great tablets.
Too bad they got messed up with the price and a couple of other items.
Thanks for the video Charbax
