"Got From A Friend Not Really Knowing Anything about it."

Pros: Nice size screen with excellent picture quality. Supports most popular formats: M4A, Wave, WMV (Prortected & Non protected, AAC, AC3, Mpeg-4, XviD, DivX, H264, Mpeg-2, AVI, WMV, And Photo: JPEG, PNG, BMP, And Text: PDF. This makes the player an A+
Cons: You have to purchase add-ons to get it to play all the formats that are suported. Volume level in my opinion could be louder. Battery life sucks big time, and it could be a little cheaper in my opinion.
Summary: A couple of years ago I picked up an Archos 604, I loved that device until I sold it December 2007 after Urge sold out to Rhapsody. I didn't "feel" like redownloading all of my tracks, so I sold it on eBay. I thought the 404 would be a better replacement for it since it had the same 30 GB hard drive and identical user interface. Better in theory was the matte-finish screen on the 404 - the 604 had a shiny screen which could be annoying in high-light settings.
Cons: My device broke down every other month! Dealing with Archos customer service was painful. I was on the phone for hours (literally). Answering emails is taking them serveral weeks! I would not buy again, even though I like the unit.
Summary: i like it because i can store movies on it and take it on the good. i decided to buy because it inexpense and has everything i am looking for..i dont dislike anything about it ..atleast not yet ..
Summary: I have an Archos 404 but mine stopped syncing a year ago and I called Archos and they told me it would cost me $150 just for a new harddrive so I hopped on Ebay to find one and of course no one was selling one but I found a listing for one with a broken screen and I bid and lost a week later I won this one for less than the other one sold for just having a hard time putting my screen in the new Archos but I've just bought the screw driver for it and all will be right in...
Summary: Allows you to easily store lots of videos, music and songs. Great to use a travel companion for those long road trips, flights, and anywhere your heading. Comes with plenty of strage to be able to have all the stuff you needm whenever you need it. Also great for parties with its available t.v. and audio connections. Its well worth buying and very useful for all sorts of media usage. Buy one today!
Summary: Here are 8 reasons why you should consider this older model: 1) No need for proprietary software. Just drag and drop. 2) Not tied to a particular computer. Works with any Windows, Mac or Linux box. 3) Has a BUILT-IN MICROPHONE. Not too sensitive, but fine for voice notes. None of the other Archos models have one and many other media players don't. 4) Bright, crisp screen that's actually big enough to see. 5) Has a BUILT-IN SPEAKER.
