"Don't try to record with it!"2.0 starson by fitzsimj
Pros: * Plays video reasonably well, as long as it's not very high bitrate
Cons: * Awful, clunky user interface
* Applies DRM to videos that you make using the DVR Travel Adapter
* Crashes fairly often
* Doesn't play video with very high bitrates
Summary: If you want a difficult-to-use player, which requires you to buy additional codecs to view DivX/XVid/h264 encoded videos, then by all means buy this. If you want to use it to record from an external camera, forget about it. IT WILL APPLY DRM TO YOUR HOME-MADE VIDEOS.
If you use the "DVR Travel Adapter" to record video from, say, a helmet camera, it will randomly decide that it's a Macrvision-protected stream and you won't be able to export it to your computer. Archos does not respond to any inquires into this. In fact, they've never answered any question I've asked, unless it leads directly to me buying something else from them.
