I was mainly interested in the video playback features of this unit. I did listen briefly to the sample MP3s that came on the device, and they sounded fine to me. File transfer and charging are via a 5-pin mini-USB connector. Under Windows, you access the device through Explorer under the path My Computer\a105\Internal Storage.

While you can directly place music and photo files through Explorer, video files must be converted and transferred using Windows Media Player. Consequently the Archos 105 requires video files in windows media (WMV) format. The resultant file that resides on the device is about 75 MB per hour, which means you should be able to cram 20-25 hours of video on the 2GB of internal flash (non-expandable). In the settings, you can choose for a video to playback once and stop, or to loop. In my test it played video for about 4.5 hours on a single charge. While the screen is small (160 x 128 pixels), it's good enough to watch tv shows on. You can fast forward and rewind through a video file, but not quick-skip (e.g. skip 30 seconds at a time). There is a resume feature, so you can continue watching a video at the point where you left off. Another feature is the ability to turn one of your photos into a wallpaper.

Overall, it's a nice, small video player, especially if you can get it for $50. It also does mp3s and photos, and can act like a flash drive in a pinch. It's a great gadget to give to kids so they can watch their videos during trips.

I love this device! Others have complained about the lack of FM radio (which I don't listen to) and the need for more space (which would be nice, but is not a huge problem.) The thing I like is the size, and the battery life... as well as the fact that it charges off the USB connection to my laptop. This thing just fits my lifestyle!

Highly recommended... especially if you catch it on sale (as I did!) Also, Gizmos4Life shipped it quickly and in great shape... I highly recommend them as well!

The only beef I have with it is that the video quality is sub-par, but, for the money, it's a great deal.
