Summary: I was mainly interested in the video playback features of this unit. I did listen briefly to the sample MP3s that came on the device, and they sounded fine to me. File transfer and charging are via a 5-pin mini-USB connector.
May be suitable for listening to music files but inadequate to be used as a photo/video viewer

Excerpt: The Archos 105 has quite a good playback time once it is charged fully. It has the capability to view both photos and videos, in addition to playing music files. The low resolution and small sized screen isn't capable of producing high quality videos and photos.

Excerpt: Netter preiswerter Player mit allen notwendigen Funktionen. Die Bedienung ist einfach und durchdacht, der Anschluß und Musikübertragung an den PC klappt hervorragend. Der Akku hält unglaublich lange und zeigt bisher (5Monate Betrieb) auch keine Ermüdungserscheinungen.
