Maybe it is unfair for me to review this product, but I will say that every user review site I read had over half the reviews reporting product failure. Archos is notorious for dropping the ball on products, build something that looks and (for all intents and purposes) displays well, but doesn't last very long. I had this player out of the box for maybe an hour? That might be too generous, anyway the Headphone jack started failing right there and then, I had to fiddle with it and make sure it sat in a very specific position in my pocket so that it wouldn't crackle or only produce sound in one ear, and then the firm ware started crashing. That was fun, I thought I'd broken it at first getting so frustrated with the jack, when I call customer service the guy said it wasn't my fault and they just make so many that some don't work, I didn't know you could have company policy to make Sh**y products and still make money, Archos has no problem with it though. The guy on the phone actually told me I would be better off buying something else if I didn't want to go out of my price range, bad advertising no? So yes, it's my bad, I should have listened to the internet, I'd say buy a Sony instead. Or an Ipod, I think I've heard good things about those...

The hardware is built well. The software is the main problem with this player. There is no bookmarking support for podcasts and it doesn't even remember your spot when you restart the player. If all you want is a cheap player that resides in your car or for use while walking around town this is fine. Once again the interface is horrible. Get yourself a sansa fuze and install rockbox and you'll be golden.

Probably played this for approximately 20 hours. Worked well with first few syncs. Then, I downloaded 4 more albums. After selecting any song the device LOCKS UP.None of the titles played. So much for Archos2 ...I guess the 2 means I have to BUY a second MP3 player?
