I have several Archos products and not one of them has failed yet, except I had to change a lithium battery in one.

If ya check out some review sites, you'll see many lists of complaints by customers not getting stuff to work or devices locking up. My Dad and I had an archos player that crashed all the time and eventually packed up all together in under 2 years, and you'll see the reviews for the archos 605 stating many of the major features never work.

Have had an archos 605 for ages now. Not a single problem, great machine.

I think you'll find the volume of complaints vs the volume of items sold is marginal. They just seem larger as its the internet and you are focusing on them and not the total customer base.

It's a rebadged Hasee MJ125.

I've had an archos for a long time, developed a fault - got a brand new unit in the end provided by warranty

So it worked fine, until it (the battery) failed :p

I had an Archos Gmini. Worked fine until I started using it. Would constantly crash randomly. Then after not using it for about a year, the battery died and now will only give 2-10 mins usage before either crashing, or having battery run flat.
Heard numerous reports of similar issues with the Archos 605 series too.

Maybe their netbooks are different...

"With a sleek design and matte black casing, pleasingly light and compact size, plus a stunning 10" ultra-bright LED backlight screen, the ARCHOS 10 will bridge the gap between those who are yearning to join the PC connected world and those that want to replace their heavy laptop at a very reasonable cost."

Archos are know for changing their specs without admitting anything. If anyone buys it, the first thing to check after you get it is the screen. You might find that instead of "ultra-bright LED backlight screen" Archos will give you an "ultra-crappy TN screen which nobody even Acer wanted". Such was the case with Archos 5 for example.

Nice machine. They were doing this on QVC with 2 batteries and 2 power supplies I think [url]www.qvcuk.com/ukqic/qvcapp.aspx/app.detail/params.item.561058[/url]

Difficult price point (either the Play or QVC price) as there's a LOT of competition. The Samsung NC10 being the best netbook by miles from my experience.

I've been using an Archos 605 for well over a year with absolutely no problems. I commute 2 hours each way into London, so I watch quite a few films. The charge is the same as when I first got it.

Batteries do die though, charge any battery enough times and it won't hold a charge any more.

If you had not used it much though this does suggest a faulty battery. However one faulty battery does not indicate a trend.

My girlfriend has a 605 and she loves it.

I have been using Archos 504, 605 and the new series 5 and 7 in last 4 years. Never had any problem and I'm an extensive user. For me they are the best media player in the market. Most of the complains are about their customer service but I have no experience of that as never needed it.

When there is a provision for a disagreement, you'll seldom get to the truth of the matter because every pro has a con. That's how stealth thievery works. In reality, when a problem is encountered, it is a personal matter and needs addressing personally, not through some poplularity game - like "Democracy".

There is no such thing as democracy when there is no real maturity. Business is firstly about service for a fair reward and not the means to grow ever larger and then burying issues through some poplularity game of chance. This is where "businesses" hide their weaknesses. When you visit a restaurant, your past experience has no voice and neither has the voice of their supporters and detractors any say in the matter. Those are just the marketing aspects. What you get at the moment is what counts.

Archos is your typical ever-growing "business" who sees their customers as stepping stones. This type of business model, which is how big busineeses operate, is based on the "entrepreneurial" mantra of, "Business is amoral". Why is there a need for growing bigger and bigger? Because greed has NO limit other than its fear. When a restaurant gets to the point where there will be bad food served, the answer then is not a matter of luck but a matter of greed-*um-fear, and how the problem will be addressed - on an individualised basis.

Mass production has no provision for individuality, it is a matter of chance and luck. Big business works through using Peter to pay Paul. So long as their profits are covered, they really couldn't be bothered otherwise, they wouldn't want to grow bigger and bigger. Why? Because their customers couldn't be bothered about the other guy who had a fly in his soup. For most, the other person/entity is just another object, oka the living dead and the joke here is that one has to be the living dead/spiritless before one can treat another as such. Afterall, who volunteers to be at end of the bargain queue? Definitely not me. When it comes to deathly pursuits, every TD&H wants to at the beginning of the queue but most wouldn't take a peek when it comes to matters of the living.

The weak links in Archos are that they use fashion to sell much of the same and their CS personnel can be outright liars - depending on your luck of the draw and according to personal experiences - and they really couldn't care about their customers - so long as their fanboys are there to offer supporting/opposing viewpoints. And their airy-fairies are expensive too - think "French" with a liberal sprinkling of "Chosen Few"-ness and that's your bullseye, oka Apple with a happy-go-lucky French-*um-Mediterranean disposition. Where are you, Napoleon, when you are needed?

The Samsung NC10 being the best netbook by miles from my experience.

The NC10 is almost a year old now - it's long been surpassed by the likes of the EEE 1005HA with it's 10 hour battery life, and quicker Atom N280 processor.

The NC10 is also bizarrely overpriced - it's competing with today's basic £200 netbooks, but at a premium £300 rate :?

Yeah, the NC10 is 'old' now but the fact they're still being churned out and they keep their price tells us all we need to know. Value and price isn't the same thing. The NC10 nailed the netbook market perfectly and for me it's perfect with an additional 1GB. There may be newer but I'd expect them to be better as they are -obviously- newer.

The NC10 also seems to have gotten itself quite a fan base (including Microsoft increasing the life of XP) and it's even more of a proven item when you see the accessories out there for it.

Probably due to the fact that everyone that owns one recommends them to friends as reliable, well made, well designed, good battery and an overall quality product. 12months of tested use goes a long way in this sort of market to making a product keep selling. Personally I would rather a machine that goes and goes and is older tech than a new one with untested hardware and what not.

As for the comments about the quality of Archos products, my better half has one of the 605s, never been a problem with it and he got it just after it came out. As has been said before any forum you go on about *ANY* product will be littered with more complaints of faults than praise as people don't commend products as readily as they would complain about a problem. Look at the Xbox, 55% failure rate but yet still sold and still does sell like hot cakes, PS3 failure rate of 3% and sells similarly as well in the UK.

Just because a problem happens to be common on one item doesn't mean a different product will suffer the same fate. Because you are negative that must mean you're negative in everything and a pain to talk to.... I would some what doubt that statement to be true :whistling: yet it is what you are implying regarding this product based upon a previous unrelated one.
#20
The reliability arguments over Archos products are rather mute when the only thing on this netbook made by Archos is the badge...
#21
These aren't made by Archos, they're just rebadged Chineese machines (same goes for their MP3 players actually, Archos only make PMPs and MIDs)
