The ARCHOS 3 vision screen is big and bright enough to show off your best photos and videos, but the device will still fit into your pocket. The touchscreen interface boasts a virtual scroll dial that lets you quickly zip through long lists of music files.

Your Music
The ARCHOS 3 vision is perfect for music fans, with up to 14 hours of music playback before recharging and support for MP3, WMA, and WAV formats. The music library shows music by title, album, artist, genre, or your own favorites. With 8 GB of disk capacity to store over 4,000 songs, you'll have no problem saving tons of music and podcasts onto your device. And with the lyrics function, you can actually see song lyrics display right across the screen.

Your Photos
The ARCHOS 3 makes a great little photo wallet. Display them one by one or play as a slide show. For a little more fun, add a soundtrack--your favorite song.

FM Radio
The ARCHOS 3 vision has a built-in FM Radio. Set the radio presets to your favorite stations and your music, news or other programs are just few screen-taps away.

With the FM Transmitter you won't need any cables in your car. Just select the frequency you want to transmit, lay your ARCHOS on your dashboard, and it will transmit your music or podcasts to your radio, for enjoyment right through your car's speakers.

Need a voice recorder for a classroom lecture or personal notes? The ARCHOS 3 vision has a built-in microphone that will allow you to record audio for hours if needed.

I got a product from them and it broken in 1 month of use.

It always requires at least two presses to respond correctly; pitiful for any touch screen player.

As much as I want to say buy this device, It just didn't last.

this review was updated on 12/27/2009.

my archos 3 vision absolutely meets or exceeds my personal requirements for an mp3 player!

times are tough so when my mp3 player was stolen in july 2008, i honestly tried to use my aging windows mobile phone with windows media player as a replacement player for over a year. however, that solution had several limitations and frustrations. there were workarounds, but i grew tired of them.

the stolen player was an archos g-mini which i had owned for several years and i really appreciated it's features so that is the main reason i shopped for a new archos player first. the archos 3 vision player has all of those same features with heaping helping of style, storage and added features.

pros:
- it has style
- priced under $100
- plenty of storage space
- fits comfortably in all pockets
- good quality video on beautiful screen
- random play by folder, artist, album and genre
- better than average playback quality with a good equalizer
- total access to music at all times (without proprietary software)

neutral:
- battery life
- no firmware updates yet

cons:
- screen scratches quickly and easily
- the on screen control dial is almost useless for browsing tracks

the screen is beautiful and will also scratch quickly. my device had a 0.25" scratch within 24 hours of use, but i could only see it when the device was off. luckily, i have lots of screen protectors so cutting one to fit was easy. i could not see the scratch unless the screen was off. with the protector on, the screen looks much less beautiful.

the on-screen dial is certainly not the easiest navigation interface i have ever considered.

This is a cool looking gadget but that is all below are the thing to watch out for:
1) Very poor product documentation
2) Very poor technical support
3) No play list function
4) Very week FM radio receiver
5) Very very very poor FM transmitter
6) Touch screen is not responsive often requiring second, third, fourth...touches before the function is accessed
7) Menu navigation needs a rethink as once you have loaded it with more artist or albums than can fit the screen, scrolling to an artist or album is very difficult
8) Very very very very crappy headphones; you need to buy a pair of decent headphones to fully appreciate the music experience
9) No carry case as yet

The Pluses:
1) Excellent sound quality (playback)
2) Excellent video quality (playback)
3) Cool looks
4) High quality look and feel

I bought this Archos 3 Vision player online for around $70. I was lured in by the chocolate brown color, the wide range of file support, and the FM transmitter. Impressed by previous Archos offerings, I decided to try this new player out.

When I first saw the item, I was extremely surprised by how small it was. My old MP3 player (a Philips SA6145 MP3 Player (Black)) has a 3.5" screen and is quite large. I regretted buying this Archos 3 immediately after seeing its small size, which is (no joke) barely bigger than a credit card. The only reason I left my perfect Philips was for a touch screen interface that the Philips didn't have. I very much regret doing that now, as I realize that my Philips was really a great player.

And the touch screen, you may ask? It's truly horrible. It always requires at least two presses to respond correctly; pitiful for any touch screen player. And there's no way to scroll by dragging. No, you have to use a "scroll wheel" (a little circle that lights up when the touch the area of the lower, right-hand part of the screen) and turn it in a circular motion to move the page. I really missed real buttons then.

After loading some files onto the Archos, I was very happy with the 8 GB of storage space on this Archos compared to only 4 on my Philips. I loaded some AVI, FLV, and WMV files on the player and was extremely impressed with the quality of the Archos' screen. But after only 3 seconds of a high-quality AVI file, the player froze completely. The touch screen didn't respond at all, neither did pressing the home button (one of the only real buttons on the player located on the face of the player underneath the screen).
