What price did you pay? $249? If so, that is the correct price. $199 was suppose to be Euros. Charbax never addressed this issue or fixed the top banner. Lack of concern must run throughout his country (same place Archos' headquarters is at).

I believe the (non-existent?) 8GB version was supposed to have retailed for $199.

Regarding Charbax, my understanding is that he is Swiss but lives in Denmark. Archos is a French company, non?

Ordered yesterday from Archos site, got my tracking number today. Hasn't updated on the UPS site though, I'll check later tonight for confirmation. Seems promising so far.

Allright, calm down. I know it's hard to respect the French after WWi and WWII, but let's give credit where credit is due. They do a fine job with that Mayonnaise, and those tablet computers are pretty darn good too. :D

On the real, due to the what I perceive to be wider use of Linux en Frances than here in 'murica, I am more inclined to buy Linux based schwaggg ( like an Android Tablet ) from a French company than here, china, or somewhere.

Brother Charbax is okay by me no matter which patch o' dirt he hails from. I reckon I'll be pulling the trigger after some 2.2 reviews of this latest batch find me on the intertubes.

I ordered mine on 11th. Still no tracking number. Although I did call them and they confirmed my order went to shipping, so I'm expecting it to be shipped either this afternoon or tomorrow. Certainly not newegg level of service, but as long as I get it before next Saturday, I'm ok with it.

LOL!!! I knew I would catch some crap regarding my comment. The reason why I said what I did was because I asked the guy several questions (posted on the forum and pm'd) and I got nothing....notta....no reply. Sounds familar eh? Kinda like....ARCHOS!!! LOL!!! Look at the top banner ad and you can see the 4.3" is listed as the 16gb 43 for $199. Somewhere on here I read it was suppose to be 199 euros and not US dollars.

Here is some info about Archos: (from wiki):
Archos (pronounced /ˈɑrkoʊs/) is a French consumer electronics company that was established in 1988 by Henri Crohas.

Go onto Archos website (http://www.archos.com). Scroll to the bottom and click contact us. All the info is on that page.

OK ya, I'll edit the banner on top if it gets confirmed that full availability of A43 is really priced at $199 in the USA, let's see the price confirmed at Amazon, Best Buy, Tiger Direct etc. is it?

24 hours for a tracking number.

Order confirmation nearly right away.

3 day business shipping, too bad the weekend gets in the way. Monday can't come fast enough. Already have a 16GB card ready to drop in full of tunes.

HOLY CRAP!!! He LIVES!!!

Charbax. The going USA price is $249. The 8bg 43 was $199 until Archos dropped that product (for some unknown reason). The top banner ad price is incorrect if its US dollars (it's showing $199). I don't think I need to do any leg work for you since you already mentioned the most popular places that is suppose (keyword) to sell the IT43. Just type those sites in your browser and you will see for yourself. Oh, and Archos website...$249 US dollars. Full availability in the US!? LOL!! You a very funny guy. You know as well as all of us there is limited availability of 43's throughout the world yet alone the USA.

There have been quite a few people confused by the top banner. A simple change will eliminate any future cornfusion.

Sorry guys for being a lurker, I have been fallowing the site for a little bit, I used to be on another forum, but then I lost all that for Archos, I had a AV500, AV700 and a 605wifi. Both of them broke, well one the battery's life was gone in 30min. The wifi one well it was gone in 10 w/ wifi on. But thats another story for another time.

Thank you for letting a old Archos Fan know, that the 43, is available. I have placed a order on Archos.com and got my shipping number and information and should be here on Tuesday 1/18. I'm happy so far. Lineing up some apps already that are musts for the device.

I know you need to have internet access to use some of the apps, and with nearly lots of places with wifi now, that shouldnt be a problem when searching for signal.

I mainly got this for watching movies at work. - Yes converting them to my phone was not so good.

Thanks for the info guys. See you around.

For the canadians on this site, did you buy it from archos.com or archos.ca? Archos.ca looks shady to me. Something I would have made in highschool. Is it legit?

I had the same doubts, I'mpPissedOff. Reading through the various posts on this forum, archos.ca is legit and I went ahead and ordered. So far, my complaints have been with Archos' supply, not with archos.ca. I'll report back when I receive my 43, which is estimated to arrive around the 20th.

I ordered from Archos.com - I would have ordered from amazon.com, but they dont have it listed on there page anymore. It was there then went away.

I havn't been to archos.ca , as I live in California, and the Archos is shipping from Colorado. Or says the UPS shipping info.
