It's very easy to hold and the screen is so big and ...

Summary: The first one I bought had to be sent back for replacement on my expense even though it came without functioning WiFi and I called tech support as soon as I got it. As for the product itself, it drains battery quickly and crashes constantly.
Great Tablet, But Obsolete Since Archos Stopped Updating Android
5 June 2013
Summary: I bought my first Archos G9 80 from Staples a year ago, back in June 2012. It was advertised as a 4gig RAM but was actually 8gigs. It was on sale for $125 and since all I wanted was an eReader...
Summary: This tablet broke in the first week of having it. One day i plugged it in to my computer and when i unplugged it it powered off and would turn back on. It seemed all right using it before it died but my Asus transformer is way more responsive.

Summary: Be warned the build quality of Archos' devices isn't great, their firmware tends to be buggy and worst of all if you purchase from anywhere other than their website they absolutely refuse to honor the warranty or any RMA.
Shrieking Violet "I apologize for nothing!", Amazon

Summary: This tablet is one of the most frustrating items I have ever owned. It worked fine for the first few weeks, then the internet connection got a little wobbly (even though my wireless router is six feet away).
Summary: Yes..such a pity that a good product is spoilt by having too little storage space... The built-in 8gb is in reality closer to 6.5gb and although there is an external SD slot, it does not allow you to store apps or even app related data.
Summary: Ordered this Archos 80 9G 8" after reading the few reviews it had and compared many tabs that were under $300. Decided to give this a try. So far glad I did. I am surprised that it is as responsive as it is running ICS 4.05. I had read that some other tabs were quite slow running ICS.
Summary: I purchased an Archos 80 G9 Turbo in January, 2012. The battery no longer charges nor does it recognise the charging cable. It will beep and tell you to mount the charging cable, but refuses to recognise said cable, except to discharge the battery.
Summary: Had it a week now and have been mostly satisfied so far, but... there are improvements needed. I don't understand why the speaker is in the back of the unit, facing away from you. Should be two speakers in the front (stereo). The screen is fine although a fingerprint magnet like many others.
