The Archos 9 ran for 3 hours and 42 minutes on our video playback battery drain test, which isn't bad for a small device that also has to power a touch screen. But, we wish there was an easier way to put the machine to sleep or even just shut off the display to extend battery life.

Archos includes an industry-standard one-year parts and labor warranty with the system. The company requires you to register with a Web site username and password before it will show you tech support contact details, but the toll-free number is 877-300-8879, which is available 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., CST, seven days a week. The support Web site also includes an above-average FAQ list and links to Archos user sites and forums.
