Summary: I have been using this for more than 2 years. No problems so far. The problem is that if you have many apps, it turns sluggish as it has only 512 MB RAM. Construction is good and solid. It is used by my 4 year old son, but hasn't shown any signs of failure. So far battery backup is good about 4 Hrs. Also front camera is not of great quality.

Summary: I purchased the Archos 80 G9 8GB in early 2012 as a replacement for an E-reader that bit the dust. Being an avid reader, I use this to load books prior to going on vacation, (beats paying airline overweight baggage fees). However this does so much more, and from "day 1" I was able to use it to connect to various airport and other public web access points to check E-mail, surf the net, and basically do almost anything that I do on my desk top P.C.
Summary: This is a really nice budget tablet that doesn't leave me feeling I'm missing anything. Granted, this is my first tablet, but I use it often and I'm quite happy with it. Some of the things I've used it for is Facebook, web searches, You Tube videos, weather apps, and notetaking. I've had it for a few months now and I use it daily. I find the 8 inch tablet to be a nice size for typing. The keyboard works quite well and I don't find myself mistyping very often.
Summary: I had a Palm PDA to hold info and music and when it went bad after many many years, It seemed that the only thing out there was Apboutple Apple or Apple. Someone told me about Archos I got the Archos 43 to start with and was I impressed with it. After a few months I say the Archos 80 G9 Turbo and got it. I really enjoy it alot and the picture and sounds quality is just great. At present I do not use it to its full extent but I do love what I do with it at present.
Summary: I'm cheap. I don't have huge amounts of money to burn on something that is still quite frankly a consumption device. Thankfully, Archos and I see eye to eye on the cheap thing and the Archos 80 will take you on the best ride for the money. -Look & Feel- The Archos is made of plastic but it feels firm in hand. The plastic doesn't flex under pressure and the entire body looks rather handsome. It's not an iPad, there's no aluminum or minimalistic feel.
Summary: The Archos 80 g9 tablet was amazing right out of the box! Since I have an Android phone running an earlier version 'Froyo' using 'Ice Cream Sandwich' was great! It's super fast and continues to be! I'm not a 'downloader' if you are one spring for the extra cash and get a bigger drive to hold your massive amounts of data! The only few cons:( The 3G stick does not work in 'The North American Market' which made me a little pissy, cause I like using what I never have...
