20 November 2010

Summary: Bought this product in Dec 06 when it was around $200. Not bad for 20GB and the loads of functions. Works well the first three months. Digital camera and Camcorder is not bad. Quality is not the best, but it's useful in a pinch.
Summary: This product has a lot going for it especially on the surface--you can use it as a camera (low megapixels), digital video camera (not too bad), MP3 player (just fine), mediaplayer (can be difficult to import media) and overall digital storage device.
Summary: I bought this player about 2 months ago. I like it. It's easy to transfer files to and from the unit especially since the unit can be connected to your computer as a Windows device and use Windows Media Player to transfer files or it can be connected as a hard drive and the files can be transferred...
Summary: The unit seemed like it would do everthing that I needed for a vaction or school show. One unit for MP3 or video watching on the plane, recording the kids at the beach or taking snap shots. I opened the box and the camcorder and camera functions did not work. All I had was a snowy screen for both.

Summary: This is a great item that Archos designed poorly. The still camera isnt all that great, takes blurry pictures. The video isnt great either; nice FPS but the sound is garbage. Plays great video. Has useless games on it that are also impossible to control because of the location of the buttons.

Summary: I wanted to buy a portable device that would let me record high-quality digital audio. There are quite a few products available that allow that, but I wanted a device that would interface with a Linux PC without difficulty. Not many choices there!
