Nice MP3 player and amaing features. Breaks quckly
9 August 2013
Summary: I loved this when I first got it. It even has an amazing built in FM transmitter when little to no MP3 player or phone has. Unfortunately the lower half of the screen stopped working after about a month, calibration did nothing to fix it. Im really not sure what happened.
An unfortunate tweener that doesn't really fill a need.

Summary: What the heck do I mean by that? Well, the Archos is a bit big for what is essentially an MP3 player with benefits. FM radio is nice, but not nice enough to sacrifice size. The screen is decent sized compared to an ipod, but smaller than the smart phone that you probably also have.
Summary: I've chosen Archos because of it's well known brand name for a portable multimedia gadget. After receive this little gadget, my impression was "wow.. this is so tiny..." the clarity of the sounds quite good, and the ability to do drag and drop from PC also makes this gadget even better for a walking...
Summary: I'll admit up front that I'm a novice for hand-held video/mp3 players, although I've owned many portable devices such as my old Sony Walkman and mobile several cd/radio players in the past, and I use windows media player and other various cd-burning and photo/video softare programs.
Summary: I already have a ITouch so how could this really measure up. I did though get this for my eight year old son, whom really loves it and finds it easy to use. It was easy to set up. Plug the cable into my computer and after it was charged up, it was easily set up.
Summary: I bought this product to replace and iPod that I had lost. The price is right for this unit but I've had a lot of trouble downloading material to it and you have to be careful when storing so the batteries don't discharge.
Summary: Don't buy for photos or videos - you will be disappointed. The main purpose of the screen is so you can view and select from your library, and that works just fine. Keep the display to its lowest brightness and duration setting and you'll get battery life of six to seven continuous hours - maybe...
Pros: Small and light Display screen to see content FM Radio Easy to load Charges quickly (less than an hour) Pressing FF fades-out selection playing before starting next track - nice touch
Cons: Takes a few seconds to turn on Button functions not clearly defined in manual Preloaded music, photos, video and conversion software
Summary: Let me preface this by saying I really, really wanted to like this MP3 player. I hate giving bad reviews and it's not that this MP3 player didn't work. It does work. On the bright side, the battery life is pretty good. I took it with me on a long, 4 hour drive and played it the entire way.
Summary: This is a nice little lightweight MP3 player. I love the lack of weight, it barely registers. And I love the built-in FM radio, which many ipods don't even have. I don't much care for the sensitivity or accuracy of the touch-screen.
Summary: As far as ease of carrying and weight this is a great player. However there are many small minor details that make it less than perfect. The touch screen works best with a little stylus as it is small and sometimes unresponsive to fingertips.
