Summary: With only a single USB connection and no SD card slot or video output, the Archos 9 isn't very port-friendly. We would have especially liked to see an SD card reader, which would make this a potentially useful tool for on-the-go photographers.
THEY ARE A BIT SLOW, BUT ARE LIGHT ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THEM ANY WHERE

Summary: I REALLY LIKE THE SIZE OF THE ARCHOS 9 TABLET PC. iT COULD USE A BIT MORE STORAGE ON THE MAIN DISK. THE SCREEN IS VERY CLEAR, AND IS EASY ON THE EYES. AS MOST SMALL TABLETS, IT COULD USE BETTER SPEAKERS, BUT THE SOUND PRODUCING CAPABILITIES ARE QUITE GOOD.
Summary: ITS NATURALLY HEAVY BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS A HAND HELD DEVICE AND ITS NOT BUT IT WAS WORTH MY MONEY I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO A COMPUTER GEEK ONLY.... MOST PEOPLE WOULD PREFER A ANDROID TABLET.
Summary: I've had this pc tablet for a little over 4 weeks and i'm very pleased with it. The capabilities are quite the same with a netbook that i already own and its way lighter. The touch screen is very accurate, webcam, speakers, all good.
It can be improved to deliver a better performance.

Summary: I have Archos toys since 2004. PMP and MP3 players are amazing, now I have the Archos 5 Android 500GB and I love the storage capacity. In regards to this new Archos 9 PC tablet, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed, with an Intel Atom processor and only 1GB RAM it is slow.
Summary: To use this you need some technical knowledge and upgrade to Windows 7 Premium. Format the hard drive to gain more space, some space is wasted with a restore partition. I have mine dual booting with Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
Summary: On the whole, the Archos 9 can be used in the place of any netbook style PC running Windows, capable of internet browsing, office documents and the like. However, the biggest flaws I found were the restrictions caused by Windows 7 Starter pack, making it impossible to do such minor tasks as changing...
Summary: I had a dying netbook - it starts every other time, it's blown its PSU up - otherwise I probably wouldn't be buying such a thing. This is not a device for the faint hearted. As shipped it is completely unsatisfactory: in particular there is no hibernate (and sleep will drain the battery overnight)...
Summary: Love all things Archos and the 9 did not disapoint. The 7 and 5 are better media players but if you value the Internet experience this may be for you. Boot is no slower than you would expect for a device running windows and the touch screen is responsive.
