"Archos continues to improve!"4.5 starson by jeffmesquita
Pros: wifi, touch screen, video quality, usability, price
Cons: battery charge time, accessories
Summary: So i've owned 4 different types of Archos players in the last five years. I have yet to have any major problems with any of them and have only upgraded for the hard drive space (my other three have been passed on to friends). First off, search the web for deals on these as there are discount codes that give ten percent off or more. People complain about having to purchase add-ons but with the deals and discounts, you can still purchase the add-ons and it will be cheaper then buying the mp3 player alone from the Archos website. The 604 wifi has a limited capability Opera browser so I don't mind paying a little extra for an advanced browser. One of my favorite abilities with the Archos is being able to delete a song right from the mp3 player without having to plug into a computer. The only two bad things about this mp3 player are: First, the battery takes too long to fully charge. I've not had any problems with battery life as it will usually work for 6 to 7 hour before needing charged again, but it takes almost 8 hours to fully charge. Second, the carrying case has progressively gotten worse over the years. My first Archos player came with a case made out of waterproof wet suit material which did an amazing job protecting the player from falls. Now they come with a thin, leather covered cardboard wallet. Overall, you can't really find a better mp3 player with more hard drive space at the price.
