Summary: This mp3 player, if it can be called that, is a piece of junk. The picture makes it look good but the body is made out of cheap plastic and it feels as though it will break if you push a button. It really looks like a rip off iPod nano, and is the same in quality. The screen has zero definition with regards to pictures, music played alright but it only worked for a matter of minutes!!
Summary: In all this is a really nice piece of equipment. Honestly, I think it beats the ipod hands down. Especially for the price. It doesn't have as many features as the ipod, but if all you need to do is listen to music this mp3 player is awesome. Sounds great and easy to operate.
Summary: I bought this thing in July 2007 - I just threw the thing in the garbage. Many flaws with this product: -Difficult to navigate -Audio has smooth transition between songs but you are unable to access the menu for 5-10 seconds while changing songs (very inconvenient if you want to skip a song or stop playing) -Headphones provided are very uncomfortable -Randomly cuts to other songs for 5-10 seconds before going back to original song Spend the money on the iPod it's worth...
Summary: I had purchased this item a few years ago and my son had no issues with it, yet when I bought the second one I was really shocked it has so many issues. If you buy this item buy directly from Amazon, so if there are any issues with the firmware, you can get it replaced.Otherwise it is easy to load music onto it, has a great lit screen.If only Archos would fix the firmware issue it would be the only mp3 I would purchase.
Summary: A small, affordable, general purpose MP3 player comes to mind if you were to ask me to describe the Archos 104. But this baby is not be so ordinary when it comes to performance, and reliability. Underneath this "chic" design is a easy to use, and quite capable player. The sound is good with the built in equalizer. The quaint color display is a very nice touch when using the menu / folder driven file system.
Summary: We had purchased an Archos DVR in the past and loved it, so that is why I chose this brand for our MP3 player. I also have a Sanyo and have had problems loading song titles properly. There have been no problems with the Archos...other than purchasing better headphones, which seems to be a problem with any player we have ever bought. Great product for the price!
