Summary: I've had 2 of these now, and BOTH met an early demise. The screen is a resistive screen vs. capactive, which means you have to push on the the screen for it to register. The problem is that there is a gap between the screen and the inner workings, so the screen is super susceptible to cracking. The thing just breaks. It's a faulty design and the product should never have reached consumers.
Summary: people don't buy this thing its so cheep looking thing....... I order one and when I received it the battery damage so I returned it....the next one tht I got same thing bad battery so I didn't bother to get another one I just wanted my refund..... so think twice before u odder this product...
Summary: What a horrible MP3 player!!! The touch screen is very unresponsive and once it times out or is turned off, you have to start from the original menu to get to where you were last. It does not save your last location. DO NOT buy the 30c. Luckily, Amazon has grest customer service to take this back.
Summary: Having owned several Archos products I have to say the Archos 3 is a piece of junk. It is totally worthless JUNK. Let's me list a couple of major issues. 1. NO TECHNICAL SUPPORT...Archos does no support. 2. Archos 3 does is not recognized by WMP (Windows Media Player) so you can't sync 3. When attached to USB port it "sometimes" is recognized...more times than notit does not recognize. 4.
Summary: I was looking for something to play "FLAC" that wasn't my phone. Why someone cannot design an interface that works? IPod won for a reason. I hate ITunes and have just ripped 600+ CD's to "FLAC" so no "I" device for me. But this is utter rubbish the touch screen seems totally random. Navigation is apparently also completely random. A woeful effort and not worth the time of day... Here's a hint not everything needs to be touch, a button can also work.

Summary: My title says it all... This product is utter garbage!! Luckily for me I did not pay for this item, but what about all the consumers that did? Will they be given a refund?? This is how horrible this product truly is. I try to steer away from giving 1 star but this MP3 player or rather so-called player shouts it from the rooftops; how much it ultimately sucks, that is. What can be so horrible one might question... well the most basic of functions.

Summary: I spent way too much time trying to get this to work like it's supposed to. The touchscreen takes a few tries (at least) and more than half the time I could not get it to do what it was supposed to. It's just not a good MP3 player, no matter your technical skill level. I can't imagine anyone not being completely frustrated. I put the product away and took it out several times over several weeks and finally decided it was not worth the effort.
