Cases for the 101 G9

Post by samwharfe »

All I can find is sleeves.. Even then, they are just notebook sleeves..

Anybody know somewhere in the UK that sell cases for it?

Why not go for Archos' own dedicated case? It's the same case they issue for all their tablets.

I don't like sleeve cases :( I want a case which you can keep the tablet in whilst using it.. (im very clumsy)

I bought a Triaxis one or something. £25. Arrived yesterday but realised it doesn't fit the G9, only the standard 101.

I got this one from Amazon for my 101 G9. Very nice, black leather, everything lines up (camera, Microphone, bottons, jacks and speaker) and the kick stand works. The edges of the case also protrude enough to protect the SD card (which sticks out further than it should).

Do not get this one. They sell through buy.com and ebay as well. Even though its clearly advertised for the G9 its not as you can tell from the picture. Cut outs are wrong and its not wide enough. But the wife didn't know. Now have to pay to ship there screw up back to them.

I thought I would go for a hard case style to protect the tablet while it was in the car or out and about.
I bought this case only to find that its too tight and frequently unplugs the Flash card and powers the unit on and off.. Shame really. It's a nice little case.

[Review] Archos G9 101 Leather Case

Post by Harfainx »

Case: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006R6 ... 00_details

Genuine Leather Case for Archos G9 Tablet (8-16GB)

Cost: $29.99 USD

(I have a Skinomi TechSkin Black Carbon Fiber on my tablet, so that's what the pattern is on the device itself. I didn't put the skin on the bezel as I like the way that the bezel looks)

Pros:
Snug - Device fits in the case very well. Not too big, not too small.
Heavy - This is clearly not cheaply made.
Magnetic Lock - No piece to tuck in, the latch is magnetic, and rather strong.
Thick - The whole thing feels very solid, and it does add a bit of bulk to it.
Inside Material - There is a felt-like material (I don't think it's actual felt) that makes it nice and soft inside. It grips the tablet well and almost guarantees no scratching of the tablet.

Cons:
Heavy - (yes, this is a con too!) The tablet can't stand up on the kickstand with this case on it. The top flap of the case is too heavy and makes the tablet fall over. Can't prop the tablet up on the flap.
Needs to stretch - The case is so well-fitting that it actually needs to stretch to be able to magnetically latch after the tablet is in it. Mine is currently resting face-down, under a book to hold it in place and stretch it a bit.
Kickstand Area - The small piece on the outside of the kickstand area is kind of there by itself, making it loose and it doesn't fit quite right. I assume it will need to be molded to fit over time.

Overall:
The case is very nice, and I like the overall quality of it. This is clearly a quality case, but it needs to be worn on the tablet for a bit to make it fit perfectly. There needs to be a little stretching and molding done.

I would definitely recommend this tablet to others with a G9 101.

Ohhh, boy... Mine is on its way, should arrive in 2 or 3 days (waiting for 8 days). Hope that it'll be good enough!

I purchased that one as well about 6 days ago and I just got an email saying that it was shipped, and on top of that the arrival date is sometime between "Friday, February 17, 2012 - Wednesday, March 7, 2012" :?

Hi,

Had my 101 G9 for 3 days now and loving it :D

Received my Tuff Luv case in the post this morning - http://tuff-luv.com/tri-axis-series-gen ... black.html

Well made and fits perfectly. The stand is brilliant in landscape, in portrait the device does have a slight tilt to the right but not enough to be an issue.

Would recommend.

45 pounds? Pretty expensive, although it looks very luxe.

I'll stay with this one: http://www.newmp3technology.com/archos-101-g9-case.htm
Costs 30 euros (=25 pound)(saves me 24 euro's) and does what it's supposed to do.

Although mine doesn't fit nice in the hand when reading a book.

Those sleeves aren't worth it. I got one for my 70 250gb, had it in the sleeve and was putting it into my pocket (large pocket it was) it slipped from my hand, dropped about 2› feet and the screen shattered. the sleeve offered no protection.

Sleeves aren't really meant for drop protection. They are mainly designed to keep minor scratches off the sides and screen when the device isn't in use.

The only reason I put any cases on my tablets is to protect the edges from scrapes, and keep the screen safe while I travel with it. I wouldn't really trust it much for drop damage.

There use to be a company Proporta, I think, that had an aluminium plate in the cover to add some impact protection. However it would not offer much in the way of "twist" protection. I'll have to see if they are still making cases.
