Is the 80XS more reliable than Gen 9 Archos tablets?

Post by ifb »

I am on my third 80 G9 and although unit No.3 was brand new the wifi doesn't work properly. I am now being told there is a chance I might get a different model as its replacement.

My limited research suggests that the 80XS is an updated 80 G9 with a faster CPU, more memory and comes in a white finished case rather than a grey one? But my question is - do the 80XS models have any inherent reliability problems like the 80 G9?

Ah, never mind. I have been told I will be getting an 80 Titanium to replace the 80 G9. It looks nice but no more GPS, Bluetooth or USB charging...

Well, maybe my luck is on the up. Archos was sympathetic to the fact that the Titanium 80 was quite a bit less in spec. than the G9 80 - so they offered me a Platinum 80. Apparently they had no 80 XS examples in stock. But I have just been informed I will be getting an 80 XS after all, so I don't have to lose Bluetooth and GPS.
