Summary: Probably played this for approximately 20 hours. Worked well with first few syncs. Then, I downloaded 4 more albums. After selecting any song the device LOCKS UP.None of the titles played. So much for Archos2 ...I guess the 2 means I have to BUY a second MP3 player?
Summary: I boycotted Apples's Ipod since they release their first ipod due to their DRM issue. Bought several different mp3 players and I thought I found the one in the Archos 2. Everything about the Archos 2 works well enough to enjoy it except that scroll bar thing. I think the idea of the scroll bar was great but it just doesn't work very well.
Summary: I was looking for a more solid player for my wife to use during her workouts, but didn't want to spend the kind of money that something like the iPod Touch would require. I saw this one's features as sort of a "middle-ground" and took a chance. While I'm not disappointed (my wife actually likes it quite a bit), I do wish the controls were a little more reliable. The menu system isn't very intuitive, and the "slider bar" isn't very responsive.
Archos 2 Vision MP3, budget freiendly and kickass!

Summary: First off im anti ipod, i dont like the itunes program. so this played a big role in the mp3 player i was going to buy. i wanted something that i could just plug into my pc and drag and drop things into my mp3, no stupid 100+gb itunes needed. what attracted me to the archos 2 vision was the sdhc card slot for expanded memory, i have lots of music and 8gb wasnt enough.
Summary: I bought this for my husband for Christmas. It is fantastic. We can't believe how many songs it can hold. He listens to it a lot, and he can plug it into his truck's radio so the radio never gets played now. It is so easy to use and sync that there was no problem at all with loading the music. Will definatly be well used.
Summary: The scroll bar isnt very responsive at all. Takes forever to get to each menu and to scroll through lists of songs. the most practical thing would be to leave it on shuffle so you dont have to bother with it.
Summary: It's good for it's price. It's very light and small. The touch volume is a little hard to control, it is not very sensative and you have to play with it a little to make the volume go up or down or to use as a scroll key. Overall its alright. Not the best gadget but not too shabby. It works but dont absolutely love.
Summary: I like the size, sound and storage capacity, however I have difficulty negotiating the menu, so when I get stuck in radio and want to get back to my music, I often get frustrated and give up. Would not buy another for that reason.
Summary: Just received this for my 11 year old this Christmas. It came almost a full week early! Way to go guys, that was awesome! I've only checked out the radio so far and I can honestly say it sounds great. Crisp and clear. I'll update once I've checked out the other features, but so far so good!
