Pros: Functionality is key. Video quality is good.
Cons: CNET Review dead on. User navigation is difficult and not intuitive. Movies do not play on Windows Media Player.
Summary: Like a lot of people, I want the most functionality for my money and can appreciate a small device that meets all my needs (music, movies, camcorder/photos, and games). Now that I have it, I'm more taken with the camcorder feature than anything else. As a MP3 player, navigation and controls are everything. This player just does not match up with the Ipod in that department. It would be nice if they gave you one or two games instead of just the demos. It is frustrating that you can't listen to music and look at photos and videos at the same time.
No matter what, Archos is ahead of the pack in technological convergence. The only thing better would be a phone that can do all of this and had a minimum of 20GB of memory.
