5.0 out of 5 stars Why buy the 202 when the 204 is out?, 6 Jun 2007
This review is from: Archos Gmini XS 202s 20GB MP3 Player (Electronics)
I'm surprised that people are still buying the 202 (and that Amazon is still selling it for such a high price). The Archos 204 has been out for a while now. It is the same size, has the same capacity, but features a colour screen, the ability to store and display pictures, the ability to browse tracks while listening to a song, has a much longer battery life of 20 hours, and it does not hang when you disconnect it from the PC. When I started looking for a really portable player with a large capacity, I had initially come across the 202 on Amazon, but, as I always like to do, I visited the manufacturers website first to see if any newer products were in the pipeline. You'd be surprised how many items are being sold by online stores, that have already been discontinued by the manufacturers, meaning no future support for the product! Anyway, the Archos website features the NEW 204, and had a special deal where you could order the 204, with a carrying case and travel charger for 199 euros! Now that's a bargain, and the 204 is absolutely superb! Great sound, extremely portable, long battery life, easy media transfer via WMP11, displays pictures and album art, easy user interface, and reasonably priced. Now that deserves 5 stars!!
