Excerpt: This is the worst product. My mom bought this product and I already had one and it was the worst! within the first month the charging unit went bad! Have had a terrible time getting it replaced or repaired!
Summary: I've had this tablet for less than a year and a a few complaints. The first being that the screen on this unit is terrible. The outer casing is a cheap plastic. The stand on the back of the tablet is a great idea but the implementation is sub par since it is easy to break and does not easily support the tablet. The customer support for this tablet is one of the worst things I've ever seen. My tablet had multiple large patches of dead pixels on the seen.
Summary: This product quality is poor. The receptacle for the charger broke the first week and cannot be repaired. I purchased 5 as gifts and all had the same problem at different times. No warranty and no recourse from the vendor.
Summary: Purchased this product for my son for a job well done but after 6 months it would not charge. A internet search stated needed new firmware- Did that - worked for a while. Stopped charging again. Thought it might be the cord, bought a new cord, charged for another couple weeks, stopped charging again. Researched some more on the internet found out there is a problem with charging port- limited warranty in my literature in my box.
Summary: bid for the turbo version and sent me the classic version, with 4GB capacity, this model is not on the archos page , I doubt that the product is original .... NOT RECOMMENDED!! oferte por la version turbo y me enviaron la version clasica, con capacidad de 4 gb, ese modelo no esta en la pagina de archos, dudo que el producto sea original....NO RECOMENDADO!!!!
Summary: I purchased this product 13 months ago specifically because it was an android with GPS. 2 months after i got it, I installed an archos update that killed the gps and support could not or would not help me get the GPS working again. after 6 weeks, a new firmware was released and i got the gps back. 3 months later, the battery would not hold a charge for more than a minute. it took 4 weeks to get the device replaced.
Summary: We bought this device for our son in April 2012. I am writing this review as of October 2012. In the opinion of my son and me, this is a worthless tablet. The customer service is awful. The updates make things slower. The wi-fi connection will suddenly turn off without warning. The kickstand on the back is flimsy. For the low price, it isn't even worth the hassle once you get it. Customer service from Archos is one of the biggest problems.
Summary: I bought the archos 80 G9 tablet 5 months ago and the sound quit working recently. I also got the Turbo 16 gb for my fiance 3 months ago and it stopped holding a charge. It's now useless as it won't charge up. I contacted archos and haven't gotten a reply back from them as yet. If I had know they would be such a problem I would never have bought them. the reviews seemed great till I read some of the blogs on the same problems I'm having. They're both common problems.
