Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Design, look, fast start, quality of display.
Bad points:
Frequently crashes and restarts. Archos support is very poor. They only accepted the unit back for repair after the 2nd atttempt to do this and it has now been with them for 6 weeks and still not repaired. Good product let down by build quality and terrible after sales service.
