The tablet freezes a few times a day.

The defect is about the display that bends and pixels get squashed in some screen areas when pressure is applied to the device.

After contacting Archos to have it replaced UNDER WARRANTY, it took 3 months to resolve it.

I bought this model from B&H due to its availability over amazon's. I love the 250 GB model as I prefer to have the capacity for all of my favorite applications, videos, and music on my tablets without having to switch the SD cards with the smaller capacity models. There are vast improvements over the Archos 70 250 G model which I also own. I would share some of the observations here :

Initial Setup

It is pretty easy to run the setup as it navigates you through the steps the first time we powered it on. I ran into issues of not being able to connect to my home Wifi when I went through the initial setup. After I downloaded the latest firmware updates to my desktop and did a manual upgrade to the Archos 80 G9, everything ran fine. Interestingly, I ran into the same networking issues with the Archos 70. The instruction for upgrading the firmware manually is available on the Archos support website.

Display and Sound

The display is much nicer 70 with a brighter screen and better viewing angle as compared to the Archos. However, it still does not match the quality of the more popular tablets like the Kindle Fire and Asus Transformer which I also own. The unit's speaker produces adequate volume but the quality is not great. I have no problem with the multi-touch screen and it seems to be quite sensitive. The Archos 80 G9 250 GB model weighs 23 oz vs 15 oz for the Archos 70, quite a bit heavier in comparison.

System and stability

This Turbo version runs pretty fast and is quite noticeable when we run multiple applications including surfing on the internet. It is still not very stable as I occasionally had applications frozen which required a forced stop.

My Archos tablet sould not hold a charge after 6 months of owning it. After contacting Archos to have it replaced UNDER WARRANTY, it took 3 months to resolve it. I will NEVER buy another Archos product again. EVER. It's one thing to sell an inferior product at half the price, but this is pretty expensive to be so terrible. And then to top it off with the worst support that I've ever experienced? Noooooo way...

I read all the reviews before purchasing this product, and took the gamble that most people who decide to write reviews are driven to do so by a bad experience, and that not everyone who had a good experience posted a review.

I owned the Archos 101 before purchasing this product, with the 16GB flash memory. At the time it was awesome compared to other tablets because of its file compatibility. It was a little slow, and at times non-responsive, but I could get past that because the USB port allowed me to use an external hard drive, meaning I wasn't limited by the small internal memory. With this new one, I'm not limited by a small memory, it's touch screen and OS are significantly better, and I have full Play Store access, unlike the 101. This means Netflix, etc. which is fantastic. It's also a lot beefier than the 101. Where the 101 was very light, and made of cheap plastic (I dropped it on the corner from about 6 inches up and the corner cracked), this one doesn't feel that way. I'm sure if dropped it would react in a similar fashion, but it feels stronger. This is in large part due to the heavy hard drive inside it, but I don't care where it comes from, I feel more confident carrying this around.

I installed a firmware update yesterday, which I'm sure had some bug fixes, but I haven't had time to check it out, so the problems are all prior to any update.

The hard drive does run a little slower than flash memory, obviously, and this has only been noticeable when listening to music. If you go to skip a song, it takes 3-4 seconds to load the next one. Not too much of a problem. It does also have a problem with corrupted video files.

My experience with Android devices with hard drives have shown to disable the media database service. if you have a fairly large media library... otherwise fairly stable since ICS is available for all archos 80 G9. Besides Archos is quite good at releasing patches to their firmware. On the other side it is a bit heavier than the archos 70IT. There is that screen ripple to back right facing near the turbo logo. Unlike previous versions of the device such as the archos 70IT having too much media on storage, does not slow the device down. My Archos 80 touts 1gb of ram may be shared with the gpu by atlest half. Would also not recommend using the full USB for devices larger than 32gb. Reasion being the battery takes a hard beating even when charging. Also ICS seems to have a problem transferring small files for a prolonged amount of time. IE creating a buffer overflow crashing the desktop manager. For that I guess you could disable notifications but I have not tested that yet. Final note it will not replace my 2007 laptop yet though it does free me from it when needed.
