Pros and cons,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Archos 2 8GB MP3 Player/Radio - Black (Electronics)
A solid little device. Looks good. Controls not very intuitive to start with. I found they took a lot of getting used to. Sound is improved using better quality headphones/earphones. Display font size is very small. I struggle when I'm out and about to see the display without my reading glasses(haven't had this problem with other players). Excellent memory size for the price. Only lists by album, artist or song titles (alphabetial order) - not by, e.g. genre, which I find very useful, i.e. if you want just classical, podcast, pop, etc. Couldn't get the video converter software to work (files have to be in a certain format) - am still awaiting Archos support to get back to me on this issue.
Great that this has the ability to be expanded using a micro SD card - and great that it has an FM radio, which I found works quite well.
So overall quite a mixed review (on balance I prefer my Sony device).
