Safety issue with the battery and very poor customer service

Summary: Archos can be added to the list of consumer electronics companies that will put faulty products in the market and then refuse to take responsibility for them. I have experience with three of these units, only one of which is still functional.
Summary: This little bugger is great. While, like some of the other reviewers, I was torn at first with some of the bugs, I quickly downloaded the firmware updates from the Archos website. It fixed every problem I had and I just love the way this thing does it all pretty well.
Summary: My daughter really loves her archos and I am impressed with the features and the price. The only dislike is when I read the description and capabilities before purchasing this item, it was not very clear if you need the Archos 404 DVR station to record from the tv onto this device.
Summary: My son loves this! The camera and video camera are a plus!! It does not have a touch screen though, so I would recommend one with a touch screen - it is much easier to navigate with the touch screen
Summary: The low price of this item is deceptive. Upon receipt, it will perform minimally as an MP3 player, but hardly anything else. Each added feature requires an additional purchase. One can expect to spend another $60 to $100 to bring it up to 'advertised' capability (recorder, multi-mode viewer, photo...
Summary: This media player is just awesome!! I just bought it and I don't have any trouble so far. It supports avi video format (what I needed) and the video quality is great, even amazing for a portable media player like this one. The sound quality is also very good, the camera and the microphone work fine.
Summary: the archos is prolly the best thing ive ever bought im glad i did i love everything about it! and everything u can do with it! if u dont have one get one! any negative feedback is bull there archos is the best meia player out there.. ipod who?
Summary: I bought this for recording TV programs and making videos without using external device and wires. It works great when connected to my Panasonic HDTV which has a video output on the back. This little device also allows you to make photos at the resolution for e-mails, such as made by a cell phone.
Summary: I love this product, I take it with me everywhere and some how I always find an excuse to use it. I show off all my pictures, videos, listen to music, watch my movies, it a lot of great things stuffed into such a small package.
