"Unbeatable for the price"4.5 starson by richrol
Pros: The Archos 80 g9 is fast. Despite what the cnet reviewer said it seems to have solid build quality. My wife has an Asus Transformer tablet, which does not seem to be built quite as solid as the g9. The screen, while not outstanding, is easily bright enoug
Cons: The placement of the volume rocker is poorly thought out. It's right where your right hand might be when holding the tablet in landscape mode. I've also noticed that, while applications start quickly, I did have it hang up and take a minute or so to open
Summary: For $299, this is an outstanding tablet. I haven't seen some of the f0.1 in tablets, but the Asus, which I've used quite a lot, while good, is not worth $100 more. The g tablet which I've used even more, doesn't even come close for about the same price. I really like the 8" size of the 80 g9, and highly recommend it. I have to say that I have no idea how reliable it will be. The one I have, b y the way, is the standard 1ghz, 8gb, so I'm sure when the 1.5ghz models come out, they'll be screamers!
