Summary: Arrived on time,was what I expected.The only thing is the earphones are a bit short but you can adjust them by pulling the wires on it.Also if you don't have a computer you might wanna get a different one,because in order to charge it you need to have a computer and if it's not charged u can't use it lol.Also doesn't last that long once you charge it,if you listen to it for a long time.I think it lasts from 3 to 5 hours after that the battery starts to get low and it...
Summary: The Archos is a fiddle with machine. I purchased this MP3 player for that function and it has a good sound, loads easy but it will not roll over or continue at the end of the file and has to be restarted. With the other MP3 players on the market that do these things they are what I will purchase, I will not buy another Archos.
Summary: My ARCHOS player has been chewed on by a bunny, dropped into a puddle, and dropped from a moving tricycle. Although I would not suggest doing these things on purpose, mine survived and plays MP3s well. The device is easy to load/unload with music, and the battery life is stellar. I wish I could navigate through the operating system quicker, but that may be due to my hippy nature, rather than the machine's operating system.
Summary: i loaded this myself with music and use it in my car all the time. i wouldn' consider myself a techie girl, so it's easy to use and has been durable. my mp3 slot in the car hangs out the front of the dashboard and it's been whacked byt he kids more than once.. still works!
Summary: very limited and quirky operating system, but shuffle plays from my 32gb microsd for 10+ hours no problem.... all songs must be loaded into the same folder--it does not have ability to cull songs from multiple folders for continuous or shuffle play--also it will play from the microsd OR the 4gb internal memory, but not both at the same time..at least you CAN delete songs from the device/card itself without having to use a desktop program to manage files...
Summary: I wanted a player with a build in USB dongle and there are not too many choices on the market. The specs on this are fine and it plays fine, but the controls are unintuitive. Many buttons are dual purpose so you need to either be in volume adjustment mode or track control mode, which means that when you are in the wrong mode you end up doing the wrong thing. This leads to frustration and eventually you will not want to use it.
Summary: I have had this player for about 6 months, use it almost every day, and still have to struggle with the UI. You would have to try very hard to make it any worse. There are a number of navigation 'tricks' that you need to learn to maintain your sanity otherwise simple tasks like VOL-UP will jump to the next title or maybe do nothing at all. The screen is very hard to read unless you're in bright sunlight and completely block the backlight.
