Rayner, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
For the price you'd be hard pressed to find an mp3 player with as much memory. The interface is excellent, battery life really good, and of course you can play video on it (although this requires a special plug in) - although I use it only for music. It's also lightweight for the size and has a sleek design. Easy to browse through music.
Bad points:
Not many - can only charge via USB unless you buy the additional mains charger.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Its size is PERFECT for travel, the video quality is awesome, and the sound is excellent (through headphones though). It will play all my files perfectly - some I have had to re-encode the sound from AC3 (although I might consider purchasing the AC3 ability from Archos later). When I hook the unit up with the DVR unit to my TV the Archos takes on an even more superb function. Overall a perfect unit in size, quality build, usable and functional.
Bad points:
If I am to be picky all I could say is the sound that comes from the internal speaker isn't the best - either use a good quality headset/ear phones or the DVR station.
