I agree. The stock headphones lasted about 20 seconds before I tossed them.

Re: Leather Case for 43 IT

One thing I can say about Noreve. They have excellent customer service. They sent me a reply already: Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for your email. This case is under production. We will launch it in less than 2/3 weeks. We will inform you as soon as we launch it on-line. Thank you for your intere...

Re: a43 headphones extra noose

Maybe loop it around your shirt button!? That way you can take the buds out of your ear and have them in easy reach (without dragging them on the floor).

Re: Leather Case for 43 IT

I emailed Noreve asking if they plan on making a case for the A43IT. I will keep everyone posted. I really like their products. Unfortunately, a case fo the 43 will probably run approx $60.

Re: Typing On Archos

I grabbed smart keyboard pro after reading the above post and it works the best of all the keyboards IÔÇÖve tried so far. I wish there was a way to set the smart keyboard pro as my keyboard permanently. Every time I reboot it goes back to the Droid keyboard.

Re: TV issues

I agree with you tmc. The first time I hooked the 43 up to the TV I had a hard time getting the cable into the 43. I still think the power and volume buttons are in the wrong place (but Im a lefty). The screen timed out three time as I was trying to get some sort of activity on the TV with my stylus...

Re: Internet Speed Demon

The SpeakEasy up speed is pretty accurate in my case. My upload speed isn't all that much. I tried speedtest.com on the 43 but it kept crashing and I had to do a hard reset. My ISP's speed test required java and the 43 didn't support it. So the only one I could find was speakeasy. I just did a test ...

No battery replacement for the 43!!!

I read several articles online saying that the 43's battery is NOT replaceable! Is this true!? I checked the manual and there's nothing regarding battery removal or replacement. The articles said once the battery is spent the unit is too! Or, is Archos going to charge us an arm and a leg to replace ...

Re: Internet Speed Demon

I just tested my 43's speed.

13.09mbps down
1.79mbps up

The test was done at Speakeasy.com.

Re: TV issues

They look just as good on my TV through the Archos 43 as on the archos itself or on my computer. Man o man. I wish I could say the same thing. I was really excited about this feature (until I tried it out) because I have a bunch of Divx shows I want to watch on the bigscreeen. tankfreak. What kind ...

Re: TV issues

Well, I tried the TV feature again last night. Moving the cursor was a little easier now that Im getting use to it. But overall it's still something left to be desired. I played a high quality rip of BSG and the end result was between a VHS recording and a TV show (non HD) quality. It will do the jo...

Re: Archos 43 internet tablet touch screen

I agree. A stylus was a no brainer for me since I've been using one for the past 6yrs for my X30. Plus, I hate fingerprints on my screen! LOL!

Re: WiFi problems?

If your 43 is acting up at another wifi connection you should contact Archos for a RMA and get it repaired/replaced.

Thx for the tip. I now know how to modify the connection without forgetting the connection and reconnecting.

Re: Duplicate photos?

I have been seeing that too. But it happens when I save or transfer a photo (I don't use the camera). I see duplicates in the gallery. This has been happening since the last firmware upgrade. But, when I go into the photo folder there is only one file. Strange.

Re: TV issues

I bought a hdmi cable last night. Hooking up to the TV was pretty simple. I plugged the cable in and chose "Switch to TV" and BAM...there was my screen. After that I was less than impressed with this feature. My stylus was completely useless and I found using my finger worked better to move the curs...

Exchange email account randomly disappears

Three times my Corporate email account has mysteriously vanished. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for it either. The first time my 43 froze on me and I had to do a hard reset. Afterwards, my exchange account was gone and so was my custom notification/ringtone that's stored on my SD card...

Some people have contacted Archos about the screen flex (slack) and Archos gave them a RMA. I have a list of things I want to contact Archos and I may include this issue too.

Since disabling the power save feature Im staying connected about 98% of the time at home now. It's WAY better than before. One thing you might want to try ywt is another wireless router (or test it on another connection) and see if that improves. Some people have said their issue was resolved after...

Re: Screen question

I have some slight depression movement on my screen. Not much more than my Dell X30 screen had. It doesn't seem to effect the performance or functionality.
