Summary: It functioned very well for 6 months. After that, the volume down button became stuck and I couldn't use it any more. It took a beating in my pocket all day at work, I'd say that for the price I paid, it worked very well. It's not for heavy work or gym use, but it'll work and do a good job under average conditions.
Summary: I bought this to replace my old Archos player. The screen broke in my pocket. I liked being able to listen to the radio while at the gym. Expecting the same thing as my old one, I was suprised when this one was smaller and had no radio included. I put some music on it but have not used it yet.
Summary: It is a very simple, not the high end player but I like it a lot. The battery life seems like forever and it is so light and small that you can use it for exercise without any extra bands to hold it. I like it a lot.
Summary: I like the long battery life. I play books on it. I don't like that you can't pick up the where you left off in the book you have to fast forward to the place where you left off. On a long book it takes a while.
Summary: I strongly recommend you to stay away from this product. I've had several Archos products so far, and for the price, they are usually ok, but this one is just not worth your money. It says Archos 4 Vision, but the picture shows the 1 vision. The Archos 1 Vision has HORRIBLE firmware. The shuffle simply doesn't work. You'll hear the 1st song over and over and over again and it gets really annoying when you're exercising.
Summary: Bought to replace my mother's Sony Walkman since it took on some water damage in the washing machine. She Loves it. Simple keys took a bit getting use to but wasnt much of a big deal. Archos is a bit of a down-grade from Sony but it can do everything the Walkman could (except for the radio). Arrived at my door in 2days (via AmazonPrime).
Summary: I looking for a cheap mp3 player and i found it. I bought this product because of the battery long life time (20-21h) and the price. But battery works only 10h not more, and the buttons works very bad and noisily and !!!!navigation is very awful!!!! the on/off button is not useful. This player is not for the videos or pictures. If you looking for a cheap mp3 player with small TFT color sreen buy archos`s other product "ARCHOS Vision 15".
Summary: The battery life is ONLY 7-8 hours on audio without using video. They advertise 20 hours which is a total LIE!!! I ONLY bought it because the battery life said 20 hours, I got ripped off! I could've bought one that has the same battery life for $14, I would've saved $10!
