Re: Why are used ones selling more than $429 on Amazon?

24% gave it a one star. That's pretty high in my book.

Why are used ones selling more than $429 on Amazon?

I checked Amazon and noticed that they don't sell the Archos 9. Did they stop selling it? I also noticed a lot of 1 star reviews. This is not giving me a good impression about the A9. Also why are used ones selling starting from $449 when a new one from Archos is $429? Last.. did Archos run out of t...

Any similar devices which run Windows?

Are there similar devices like the Archos 9 in the market?

I am interested in a portable 7"-9" wide screen device. Screen doesn't have to be touch.
No physical keyboard and no fan. Must run Windows. I do not want iOS or Android.

Re: I am dissappointed with the 43IT. Here's why..

issues with ezPDF: 1- When zoom lock is enabled it puts the text 'sf' on the screen. Don't know why and does sf mean anyways. 2- No continuous scrolling. You have to scroll to the bottom of each page and then hit the '>' to get to the next page. Cumbersome. 3- Sometimes I hit the '>' and it zooms in...

Re: I am dissappointed with the 43IT. Here's why..

I checked VuDroid and it has issues. The pdf title and zoom ruler are always visible on top of the pdf. They take valuable screen estate. These need to be enabled and disabled at will. No zoom locking. When I scroll up/down the page could sway to the left or right. All Android pdf readers suffer fro...

Re: I am dissappointed with the 43IT. Here's why..

oh, of course its all in what works for you as a user is what makes the world go round... personally, I am glad you like your Itouch. We are both stating our opinions about the iTouch and why. No need to get edgy. Plus some users don't like a device because they think it doesn't do something when i...

Re: I am dissappointed with the 43IT. Here's why..

As a user, not developer, I don't have issues with iTunes control. I want to install and use apps. I can do that with free or paid apps and the experience is easy.

With iTunes I can load my own music and videos files to the iTouch. i don't buy media stuff

Re: I am dissappointed with the 43IT. Here's why..

I tried a bunch of pdf readers like Adobe Reader, RepliGo, ezPDF, BeamReader. The point of a sleep mode is so the device is ready in a second. It shouldn't be draining the battery that fast. My iTouch and iPad have their sleep last for many days. If I have to shut down the device as a workaround the...

I am dissappointed with the 43IT. Here's why..

After playing with the Archos 43 for a few days all I can say is that it sucks. I have an iTouch and my Apple experience is better: 1- I opened the same pdf file in both devices and noticed the white background is a lot cleaner and whiter on the iTouch. The 43 screen feels cheap and dirty. 2- I can'...

Re: Case which protects the screen and can hold a stylus?

Is there enough space between the 43 and the fold "hinge" to place a stylus? Maybe I won't use the built-it holder but just the squeezing pressure to hold the stylus from falling out.

I created a folder on the 43IT from Windows' File Explorer. When I use the 43 File explorer I don't see the folder. The folder structure between the two different views are different. Can someone explain what am I seeing from Windows side? Is that folder structure view starting from the device root ...

Re: Is the tablet noiseless fanless like the iPad?

You're right. I had two Archos 5 with 250GB drives and the hard drives went bad. Both times after a few months. Bad drives as they had short life spans. I won't buy their devices with hard drives anymore. They need to go with Flash or SSD's.
