Hey all, just received my 43 today delivered UPS. Ordered on 1/11.


I ordered on the same day. But will receive mine on 18th if all goes well, one week later. No justice in this world.

They're asking if you still want this. You could have bought it elsewhere and forgot to cancel the order with them. It's courteous of them to ask this, but yes, they could have asked this earlier (a few days ago...)

Just received shipping notification from Canada Post with an anticipated delivery date of January 20th. I expect that the parcel itself won't make it into Canada Post's system until Friday or Monday as Scott indicated earlier today, but am excited nonetheless.
Heh. I've been irritated since Tuesday or Wednesday, because lot's of people who ordered from Archos.CA were getting shipping notifications, but not me... "Oh, well, I'm pretty far down on the pre-order list."

I just found the shipping info from Canada Post in my GMail Spam folder. Dated Tuesday. :shock: :oops:

On the plus side... Probably shipped yesterday, as promised!

I just looked on Amazon.com, even though they don't yet have any units in stock. I can't seem to find them anywhere. Can anyone else confirm that they are no longer available on Amazon (US)?
Unfortunately, I have quite a bit of money tied up at Amazon in the form of gift card/certificates, so I need to wait until they have them. Otherwise, I would definitely be buying from the Archos site.

Probably gonna be a while before Archos begins shipping to etailers... unless you want the Archos 32 or 28, amazon probably like J&R will have to wait several more weeks. Apparently, etailers who had orders below MSRP are going to be prejudiced in favor of direct sales (MSRP) at archos.com til at least February. Maybe you can buy accessories such as cables, screen protectors, flash media *micro sd, if getting the 43,70,101-- usb if 28, 32*, cases @ amazon to use up the gift cards. Another idea is to trade them for a more useful gift card.

I think Amazon pulled the 43 from it's active list/search because Archos jerked around etailers for so long. Obviously the blame lies with Archos, but etailers are who's gonna get the customer complaints. Even now as Archos gets in the 43's.. the 70's & 101s are in short supply as well. Don't forget that Archos must hold inventory for defective units back to handle the RMA process. Imagine waiting 3 months for an RMA to be compled. That's 3 months of existing warranty & personal usage chewed up by a replacement. Not saying that will happen, but if Archos doesn't locally warehouse enough stock in your home country.. that's possible.

Is that right!? Is that true!? Can you do a screenshot to verify!? If so, Im cancelling my order from J&R (as I promised Charbax) and placing my order with Archos' store. How much is the shipping?

Looks like Im might have to put an order in!! Was the discount applied after the transaction or did you see it before your pressed the button to commit?
Sorry about all the questions but Archos has me a bit trigger (buy now button) shy.

It was near the commit time, but I don't remember the precise point. It was a good surprise!

Ya know.. I'd be really upset if Archos lowers the price to $199 just AFTER I ordered at $249.... in fairness they need to refund everyone $50!! In other news... New Egg just got the Archos 43 tablets in.. so if you dont' wanna pay sales tax in the other 47 states they have no physical presence in... go ahead. Price @ NE is $244.99 w/ f/s (apparently matching amazon) =D>
