Summary: When first received, I checked all features quickly. ALL worked. (not thrilled with file system, but OK) Several months later located this in my desk and tried to get it to work. Screen sensitivity was LOW and menu system was balky. I put it aside, disgusted. Came back 2 days later (still plugged into USB port) Thought I'd give another try, the darn thing fired thru the menus and took a slight touch to access screen features.
Summary: I was kinda hesitant about buying this cuz most companies try to copy the ipod and it doesn't work out to good. But this one is actually pretty good. the only thing is getting use to the screen. i think a stylus works better then your fingers but you can use your finger nail just as well as a stylus. and the fm transmitter is decent. it's not great or anything but it does work once you find a spot to set the mp3 player and a good station with little interference.
Summary: the Archos 3cam player works quite well at it's core functions, don't be foolish and buy it for the camera, the camera is on par with early camera phones, you need lots of light to get a good picture, i have read another review that the purchaser was disappointed that it wasn't camcorder quality, it's just a goofy feature kid's might get use out of.
Summary: Love the new Archos!! This one is amazing!. There is only one thing that i could add to the last review, you need a screen protecter and a silicon case, other than that it is the best one i've handled. I even have an itouch, and i like this one better. The pictures are much clearer and the video is very crisp. For movies you don't have to convert them into a different format, you just put them on and your Archos 3 cam vision works! Unlike almost all other video mp3's.
Summary: Size: I really like that this mp3 player is quite slim, just over a 1/4" thick. You can slide it into your pocket and forget you even have it on you. Great for traveling. It has a 3" color touchscreen. Features: The touchscreen is sharp and responsive. The built in radial scroll mechanism is cool, but take a little getting used to. By far the best feature of this mp3 player is the video camera. Take photos and capture video.
Summary: I chose the 3cam over the regular 3 vision because of hopes that the camera and photo would be worth having. Even though I haven't had much use for it so far, having the ability to put my favorite shows on it is great. The screen has a great picture and the music sounds great, having the radio is a huge plus too. I have not had any problems with the transmitter being weak like some other people have stated, you just have to tune it correctly.
