I thought the review was fair and summed up nicely by this quote:
ÔÇ£For what it is, its value is unmatched. Here you have an 8-inch slate running (mostly) vanilla Android 3.2, whereas some bargain-basement models costing just $50 less run GingerbreadÔÇªMoreover, what other tablet this small and this cheap has a full-sized USB port? Or a kickstand? Yeah, we're coming up short, too.ÔÇØ
Couldn't agree more. The product I received was very faulty (see my post in the screen defect thread), but minus that I love it and don't want any other tablet. Now I'm just waiting for a response from Archos so I can get a replacement. I will not be requesting a refund to buy another product, just a working Archos G9 will be perfect.
And I must say that as long as I get a working replacement, I won't let the very bad unit I received effect my view of the company or the product. I just hope the return and replacement process can be accelerated a little bit seeing as I am very anxious to use it and my current unit is unusable
