Re: Buy Gen 9 or wait for Gen 10?

I've heard that Customer Support at Archos is not the greatest. Is this really true? Superb customer support is an important part of my decision-making process of any high-end electronic product I am looking to buy.

Re: Buy Gen 9 or wait for Gen 10?

I know-you are right. However, the reason I am being picky is that Archos always seems to drop support of their older products once the new ones are available. I would buy Gen 9 today if I can be assured that Archos will offer full support (firmware updates, etc.) for the next few years. I can't aff...

Re: Buy Gen 9 or wait for Gen 10?

I saw the Gen 9 line-up at the CES and was underwhelmed. Not much improvement over Gen 8.

Buy Gen 9 or wait for Gen 10?

I am still undecided whether I should take the plunge now and buy an Archos Gen 9 or wait for the Gen 10 line-up.. I would expect that Gen 10 will be fantastic with the latest Android version and fixing of a lot of bugs in Gen 9 and better resolution screens. What does anyone think? Gen 10 introduct...

Re: TRADE IN

I am sure you can do much better than 25% if you sell privately or through ebay.

Re: Gen 8 Bargain time!

The problem with waiting for the next generation is that there is no end to it. Might as well wait for Gen 10. Only a year away. If I can get Gen 8 at bargain prices, why not?

Gen 8 Bargain time!

Can't wait to see how much the Gen 8 price drops as we get closer to Gen 9 launch date. Might be able to pick up some real bargains!

Re: Leather Case for 43 IT

It's SO sad that Archos users have to scrounge around for a decent case. I was at the CES show in January and an entire section of the exhibit hall was called iLounge where every conceivable iPod/iPhone accessory was on display by hundreds of vendors. Leather cases, pouches, battery packs, etc. Ther...

ARCHOS CES booth disappointing

The Archos booth at the 2011 was barely 10 feet across and hidden way in the back of the South Hall (where many start-up companies reside). I walked by it every day of the show and never saw it crowded. The rep I talked to couldn't answer many of my questions and kept referring to the website. I hop...

Gen 8 Reviews

I haven't had time to go through all the Gen 8 reviews. Have they been for the most part positive or negative? What did the reviews like or dislike? Thanks.

Re: Video Review: Archos 43 Internet Tablet compared to A5IT

Shouldn't the iPod Touch be more comparable to the Archos 32 instead of the Archos 43?

The Touch and the Archos 32 both have the same size screens.

If money were no object...

Everyone on this boards knows that with Gen 8 lineup, Archos is targeting the budget-minded people who don't want to pay for broadband subscriptions. Charbax emphatically emphasizes the price comparisons between the Gen 8 and iPods, Dell Streak, etc. Suppose you had no qualms about paying for subscr...

Re: New video: Archos 43 Internet Tablet compared to Archos

Well duh, they couldn't promise Froyo since it didn't exist yet . But if Apple can still offer updates for their products that increase functionality and extend that usable And yet the A5AT is barely a year old and Archos can't get newer versions of Android to run on it? My plan is to give Archos a...

Re: New video: Archos 43 Internet Tablet compared to Archos

Charbax,

Can you do a comparison with Archos 32 vs. Ipod Touch 4?

The screens are similiar in size so it would be interesting to see the differences.

Re: Pocketability

Another alternative: you can get a belt holster for the 7" Archos which will help avoid getting scratches from coins, keys, etc. in your pocket. I'm sure a lot of 3rd party holsters will be available soon.

Re: Pocketability

Why not just throw the 7" Archos into a backback, purse or briefcase? Why do you have to carry it in your pocket? How much longer would it take to whip it out of a backpack??
