"Good product but know what you're buying-Caveat Emptor!"
1 January 2010
Pros: I purchased @ Archos' refurb for $25 but not w/o researching on WEB first. 405 provides excellent video & audio playback for a sub $100 product. I've had no difficulty viewing photos/videos and listening to music. It works well w/ my 16gb SD card.
Cons: You cannot create playlists w/songs on the SD card - known issue from WEB research - (KI). Archos' customer service is non-existent (KI). User manual has limited usefulness (KI). It appears that Archos no longer supports TV guide (DVR station) (KI)

Pros: Holds music well.
Cons: Cumbersome to move around main screen. Downloading TV guide not intuitive. Setting up record TV guide not simple. Locks up constantly - have to reset almost every time I turn it on. Ruins SanDisks - can't read them. Customer support is horrible.
