4.0 out of 5 stars Great bit of kit, 28 May 2007
Easy to use, excellent quality pictures and sound, small yet solidly built. The included headphones are distinctly average but with Sennheiser CX300's so cheap at the moment, not exactly a major issue. Shame though that you have to buy the extra plug in from Archos to watch mpeg2/divx/xvid but essential if you want compatibility with most media files. Syncs well with Windows media player. Worth considering buying the additional DVR station which allows all sorts of external connections including mains charging/car charging( pick up a usb car charger off Ebay), recording off T.V. or other external sources, video and audio in/out and the ability to transfer photos from your digital camera. All in all good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value & can be made multi-region easily, 26 May 2007
Well built, great picture and capable of accepting most disc formats, can output signals to external TV or accept inputs from other sources. Easy to make multi-region using the following:

Open the disc tray

Press SETUP

Go to "Preferences" & Press OK

Press 212225

Press ARROW LEFT, ARROW DOWN

Current region should be displayed (probably 2 if European)

Press the button for the desired Region (0=codefree)

Press SETUP

Close the disc tray

Great value especially if bought as factory recon unit with 12mts Warranty!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 24 May 2007
For such a small bit of kit and especially as it only has 2 x 1" speakers the sound quality is really good. Bass is obviously limited by the speaker size but if placed on a solid surface this helps the bottom end out enormously. Clarity is good but remember rubbish in = rubbish out.

Well built, beautifully finished, good value, what more do you need?
