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.
Summary: This tablet was purchased as a gift. Out of the box it turned on and appeared OK. attempted to connect it to the home network and called Archos for help. They had him turn over the tablet and it said it was a 4G v 8 G. Contacted seller and was given a label to send it back to goHastings.com.
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).
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.
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.
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.

Summary: In the search for the "perfect device" I have gone through a few. My main uses for the device are: - Light Internet browsing - Remote desktop to check on my home-server downloads / do web browsing that the tablet can't handle well on the PC's browser (using Splashtop or other RDP clients) - Watching...
