Mike,

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
the thing is tiny, and the sound quality is traditional archos high-quality
Bad points:
it feels kinda flimsy, the touch buttons don't really work, it takes forever to unlock, the menus are all in weird places.

some mp3 files it decided to play in a very distorted form. i converted the mp3s to a different bitrate (to make a brand new file) and it still did it. no idea why.

but the -most- annoying thing of all is to do with the audio output. when you're listening to something very very quiet, you can hear something in the background. like a whirring and clicking noise. i listen to a lot of quiet music, so this is -incredibly- annoying.

donald, Kendal Retired professional.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A good product but the touch screen control seems unreliable. I recommend that all features be carefully tested during the guarantee period.
Bad points:
The first unit supplied had to be returned as the touch screen was uncontrolable. The replacement unit appears generally satisfactory so far but control through the screen is sometimes suspect, especially on start up.

Steven, Nottingham

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good size, slim, plays music.
Bad points:
I find it a little too light. The songs fade in and out which you can't disable. And the organization of your songs can be very awkward.

Lysa,

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Small compact. Does what is necessary.
Bad points:
Can only be recharged through a computer so not travel friendly.
The buttons are very sensitive so the screen needs to be locked each time.
