Summary: The Archos hardware is absolute junk. I returned 4 (YES 4) of these to the manufacturer and I had issues with all 4 (2 had the same issue, the other 2 had other issues)....predominantly display problems. The resistive touch screen is ok, for a resistive...but I would avoid this tablet at all costs!
Summary: Holy Yuck. We are very disappointed with this tablet. We bought it to do light surfing and watch video...it does neither well. It is slow, the interface is clunky and if it had been bought locally it would have gotten returned as junk. Immagine the framerate of the old silent movies...now add sound. Ta Da... The Archos 9!
Summary: It's too low hardware configuration,waste my money!!Although the price is very reasonable,invest hundred bucks to nonuseful stuff,if I were you, I would spend one hundred yuan to buy better one.
Summary: Terrible product... The main issue is that it is running Windows 7 Starter. Windows 7 isn't really designed for tablet use so already there are problems. When you compare it to Android OS or Apple it isn't streets behind as opposed to continents behind. The computer basically stopped running once Windows updated itself.
Summary: Archos 9 8.9 inch Tablet PC (Atom Z515 1.2 GHz, 1Gb, 60Gb, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Win 7 Starter (Black)) Please note the headline specification is for a unit with 1.2Ghz Z515 processor. The detail lower down the page indicates unit is 1.1Ghz Z510 (old) specification which - as confirmed by many reviews around the internet - doesn't work very well. My wife bought one via Amazon reseller and the lower spec unit was delivered.
Buy Archos at Your Peril! "Disappointed Archo..., Amazon

Summary: I had one of these for a few days before returning it. It's not however, the first Archos item I have had and I should have known better really. Absolutly diabolical support for something that does not and will not work as advertised. With the additional cost if add-on's only to find it still does not support everything you need or a simple question that won't be answered either at all or without success...Archos does all this and more.
Summary: Got this today, followed previous review and trying to update with all the latest drivers. Graphic driver failed to update. Then tried to update the BETA driver for mouse, then I lost the mouse. Although I managed to use my USB mouse control. Hence I have to restore the system back to manufacturer setting, however, it has been over 1 hour how and .... only get 43% so far. Gotta leave it overnight and carry on play it tomorrow.
