Re: Archos 43 User experience poor due to touchscreen behavi

You guys in Europe must be getting price gouged. The A43IT is going for $199.99 US. The current price for the SGP 4.0 is $199.99 US. So at the moment the products are equal in cost (at least in the United States). If you need a kick stand and HDMI out then I would suggest the A43IT. You will also ne...

Thx for the post. Hope that helps settle the debate of resistive vs capacitive...43IT vs SGP.

Re: Archos 43 User experience poor due to touchscreen behavi

Greg_e. Im getting my first motorcycle this spring and using bluetooth headphones is a GREAT idea!! Im going to have to look into that. I have a handlebar mount in mind for my SPG player for the GPS. But after your post I now realize I will be able to listen to music as well. Thx for the tip! Julian...

Re: Archos 43 User experience poor due to touchscreen behavi

Racky. I would definitely tell you if people do not like the SGP. But so far as you know, I have no issues with it and I have not read anyone else having major issues on the SGP forums. People are just lovin it. Yes, it lacks a HDMI port (except for the Korean model) and it doesn't have a kickstand....

Re: Archos 43 User experience poor due to touchscreen behavi

1. How long does it take for a person to realize he doesn't like a product? fews days, few weeks? 2. There always have people on the internet that gave out false reviews, some try to eliminate the competition There was another guy on the amazon that gave out a 1 star for this product, he didn't eve...

Re: Archos 43 User experience poor due to touchscreen behavi

I wasn't aware people had a time frame to join a forum to give an opinion of a product they bought. I'm gonna have to find the forums rules and review them. Or there might be a blurb on my 43IT sales slip! :lol:
Maybe Mick1122 was just throughly field testing the 43IT.

Re: Archos 43 User experience poor due to touchscreen behavi

I agree with Marcel. Look at my Samsung Galaxy Player review. I got the 4.0 (4 inch) and I LOVE IT!! I wish I never bought the A43IT but it was the only pocket tablet available at the time.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 initial review

Unfortunately, my TV only reads mpeg videos. Most if not all my videos are either AVI or DIVX format. The Samsung forums say Samsung dilibertly left out the HDMI port to help increase sales of their smart TV. I don't know about anyone else but Im not about to buy a brand new TV just for one feature ...

Re: Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 initial review

So far my SGP has played everything I've thrown at it. Also, all my apps that acted squirrelly with my Archos 43IT are running flawlessly on the SGP. The GPS was a much desired feature that the 43IT lacked. My only gripe with the SGP is it doesn't have a HDMI out port. If it had that, it would be th...

Time to say goodbye...

I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 for $179.99 from BestBuy. I have graduated to the wonderful world of a capacitive screen, non-buggy OS (firmware), ultra reliable performance, and an overall fantastic product. My only regret is the Galaxy Player wasn't available a year ago. It would hav...

Re: Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 initial review

Thx JonPoli. That's some good info. I tried using the GPS (wifi off) with Latitude and Google Maps this afternoon but it couldn't find me. I was thinking maybe it was the programs that needed a wifi connection. I might try CoPilot and see how that works. UPDATE: JonPoli. You are indeed correct!! I d...

Re: Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 initial review

Keep an eye on Bestbuy's site. Two days ago they dropped $20 off the 4.0 and I couldn't resist picking one up. Although I really wanted the 5.0 I honestly have no regrets getting the 4.0. One other thing I noticed as a con on the Galaxy player. Most online streaming video looked kinda crappy. Just a...

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 initial review

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to try a Galaxy 5.0 player and within minutes I was more than impressed. I was going to wait for another month or two to pick one up for $239.99. Last night I was on BestBuy's website and I saw the Galaxy 4.0 was on sale for $179.99 (reg. $199.99). I really wanted...

What can I do with the Archos can I get my trust back for this tablet? LOL!!! You very funny guy!! LOL!! The A43IT is a mediocre device at best. Full of bugs and the user has to deal with many work arounds just to have a half decent experience with it. Unfortunatley, last year it was the only PMP/M...

Re: Blackberry Playbook

From what I heard, Blackberry is dropping out of the tablet market as it discontinued their Playbook. That explains the sudden price drop.

I had the great pleasure of trying a Galaxy 5" Player today at Bestbuy. I am definitely getting one shortly after the holidays. Saying I was impressed was an understatement. Archos should take some notes from Samsung.

Re: Galaxy Player not coming to the US?

Unfortunately, Samsung is about a year late. But Im definitely going to get one. The only question now is 4" or 5"?

Hey MPlant. Do you know anybody that lives in the USA? Couldn't you ask them to purchase it and mail it to you?
