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.

Just received the player, (I see the price has gone up since I ordered mine) I have loaded about half of my music. No genre supported, at least I haven't found it yet. Not sure if this is a problem with all the devices or not but, I have trouble with the ear bud jack staying tight enough that I don't loose sound. As long as you hold it ear bud jack steady, or lay the device down and don't move it around it works. I've tried 3 different ear buds, same problem with all 3. Debating on sending it back and trying another, will look into the return policy see how long I have to make up my mind. I was considering on getting the extra memory card (which was a major selling point for me), but maybe not after reading the previous reviews. Overall a nice little device, simple to use.

8/26/2009 - Just wanted to add, I did sent the player back for an exchange. The replacement had the same problem. You have to hold to ear bud jack in place. I sent this one back as well, this time for a refund. At this point I would only give it 0 to 1 star on the rating system. Not very pratical if you have to hold it together.
