The biggest kicker?! Well, I've only had my NEW model for about 2 months and the charging plugin connection is loose, doesn't charge (and I AM conscientious about it being like a heavy keychain in the ignition-you have to pamper it) It was already noticeably loose within about a month, now it's beyond wiggily and it won't take a charge (get a message about "slow charge" or it just doesn't charge) I DID email their "Customer Service", never got a response at all.
The other thing, Google has gobbled up Android (open source) aside from the usual built in non-wanted bloatware that makes developers design "root" applications, they also recently forced Google+ (Their version of Facebook) which is a HUGE resource hog, plus, I have Swissbrain/App aware that warns of any threats of apps installed, and Google keeps trying to push "Google Services" which not only has access/permissions to my browsing history (I can understand that for marketing reasons, since Google is profit based), BUT, they can read all of my messages, my contact information, every single detail. It automatically reinstalls.
Cost! I wanted something that had a USB host port and mini HDMI, and this had both right on board, unlike the Transformer series without the additional keyboard/battery dock (and additional price!). I didn't want to spend that much on my first tablet just in case I break it, knowingly or surprisingly.
Weight. I've held several tablets and I don't mind the weight of this one as much over many hours of holding. This makes me not care about the fact that it's a plastic case and not metal. Did I mention the price?
Power! Definitely spring for the Turbo model. I can play Angry Birds: Space, Mass Effect: Infiltrator, and Dead Trigger without any problems or lag. Also, from what I've read the Turbo model makes all the difference in the world and haven't we really learned that's how companies resolve the problem of selling an underpowered machine? Release a deluxe model? *cough*iphone4s*cough*
Glitchy/Hypersensitive Touchscreen! Every few weeks your awesome lighter-weight cost-affordable powerhouse is going to totally wig out on you and start activating random areas of the screen that invalidates any touch you make. There's also the chance that it will slowly degenerate down to this state of uselessness over time. There is a function to calibrate the touch screen, but if you want to use the one in the settings menu then you're out of luck cause your screen is already all hopped up on finger dust and won't respond at all no matter how much you say you love it and you want it back the way it was. There is a system recovery menu that you can access upon rebooting your tablet to force a screen calibration. I've included a video to demonstrate the problem that I'm having. I found this video by searching YouTube for "Archos 101 G9 touch screen problem".
Other than this one VERY inconvenient problem that basically renders the system unusable, this is a good system to tote around to watch HD video, play games, or browse the web, or run pretty much any app. It's worth noting that even though The Amazing Spider-man game (I don't recommend that game unless you like cheesy, bad games) is listed as not compatible with this device on play.google.com, I've installed it on the device and it runs just fine. Also worth noting is that the speaker on the back is a horrible idea. This can make it difficult to hear the dialogue of a movie. I'd rather have tinier speakers on the front so that the sound is projected better. Headphones solve this problem pretty quickly though.
Overall, you get exactly what you pay for when buying this product and you can interpret that however you like and you'd still be right.
I've come to a few conclusions.
I have a couple thoughts on the people that whined or complained or just talked trash about this product.
My first thought is that they work for the competition. My other thought is that these people are idiots and should stick with their crapple (yes i said crapple) products. Seriously how much of a sheeple are you that you think Crapple is remotely even good.
My other thoughts on this product is that it is easy to use, user friendly and I've fallen in love with this thing. I originally tried to buy this of the archos website itself... but it seems everything is sold out... expect for screen protectors of all things.
I digress... This is a great product, i love the memory (all 250 GB of it) and it runs android. I did run an update on the firmware after i got it. THERE WERE NO PROBLEMS.
So ignore the whiners and give this thing a go... you won't be disappointed.
