Re: Do you plan on purchasing the Archos 9?

I concur with most point you make Charbax, but the advanced software Archos makes was never asked for by the users! I own an Archos402 and an Archos5 and with both products heard people complain about the fact that the software is so closed. If people could choose, Archos' GUI would just be a Media ...

Re: Do you plan on purchasing the Archos 9?

I'm sure Archos 9 and Windows 7 will both be great products. Point is, and the point rlauzon is aiming at, is that software support / developtment have always been a bit lacky...

Re: When is the Archos 9 supposed to be available?

Plus I've heard that the official GMA500 (GPU) drivers are still very buggy with W7's Aero interface. That's probably the reason they ran it without transparency in the press event.

Re: When is the Archos 9 supposed to be available?

Allowing Archos 9 to sell the Archos 9 before the official release of windows 7, and thus, without windows 7 would just be a wild card for Archos to f*uck things up AGAIN. So far, every Archos product (not the chinese copies A2, A10) hadn't had it's full list of specs fully working on the day of rel...

New ideas to implement

Hey Guys, I just thought up something that would be very cool if Archos would incorporate in the Archos 9. Remember that 'groundbreaking' addition to the iPhone, that measures the way it's been held and keeps the programs play accordingly? Which means you would hold it portrait-wise and when turned ...

Re: My Thoughts on the Archos 9 (Please Read Archos!)

Well, I'd like to refer to the iPhone/iPod Touch, when comparing it to other devices since you'd expect the same thing (except for specs etc.) I've never heard any complaints on paint damage or anyhing. The only thing is that the backside is chrome-ish and you see scratches and such very good. I rea...

Re: Do you plan on purchasing the Archos 9?

Hey guys, please quit bashing Archos in this way. First of all: If you were STILL hoping for a new firmware for the 5th generation Archos players, you are hoping for something that will never happen. Even the 6th (current) generation won't probably see a new firmware, since everything is working eno...

Re: My Thoughts on the Archos 9 (Please Read Archos!)

The problem I have with matte finishes is that they start out matte but with usage the finish wears to become glossy in spots resulting in an uneven glossy/matte finish that really looks ugly. Have a look at any keyboard that started out matte. I bet there are now a glossy spots on the space bar an...

Re: What the is Video Card in the Archos 9?

You're totally right about extensive SM2.0 and maybe even SM3.0 use in Diablo3. I just hope I can turn it off so i can still level my character while on vacation or anything like that.

Re: What type of HDD is used in the 9 and is it upgradable?

Most "previews" talk about 80 - 120 GB. If the HDD is 1.8", then 80 - 120GB sounds normal (albeit less then most people hope). But in the end: What are you planning on using it for? The current hardware doesn't bode well for 3D modeling / extensive music editing and photoshop. Now say a fresh instal...

Re: My Thoughts on the Archos 9 (Please Read Archos!)

A interchangable 2.5" HDD is a very good idea indeed. Don't get your hopes up, though, since i've seen pictures of the Archos 9's backside and saw only one exchange port, for battery exchange. After another look at the beauty the Archos 9 is, I have some remarks about the product: - The screen: The ...

Re: My Thoughts on the Archos 9 (Please Read Archos!)

I've read your complete post, and understand most of the points you made. Consider Archos a normal, healthy company. With the current economic crisis archos is forced to differ from the path they've been walking the last 10 years. Normally they would release a new generation anually/bi-annualy. Righ...

Re: What the is Video Card in the Archos 9?

Keep in mind that TabletPCs such as the Archos9 are not developed for heavy programs such as games and rendering/drawing. I think the Archos 9 will, in the end, be capable of solid Aero interface including Aero peek, 3D flip and translucent borders. It also sounds quite believable that such a device...

Re: OMg

Seeing the Archos 5's problems and price drop in the months after release, I think I'm going to react like liamo77 and wait a bit. I'm so scared this is going to be another big farce. I'm hoping for an Archos 9 with Aero, Multitouch and a Ôé¼500,- price point , and I'm practically sure Archos can no...

As you, I was too, interested in this aspect of the Archos 9.

Re: subtitle issue

I've had some issues with subtitles where there was 'extra' information before or after the subtitles. Color information, for example. Open the .srt in notepad and look for strange indicators in the beginning and end of the subtitle file.

Re: Phone jack - solved

Eventually I got it to open. Had to force it though, but once the first clip opens, the rest just follows :) Meanwhile I soldered the contacts and even removed a resistor between 2 pins (for those who've opened it too, the 2 lower right pins). It was very small (SMT 0201), and I broke it :$ I though...
