"Better than the AV500!!"4.5 starson by llcooldre3k
Pros: Battery Life - Video : 10 hours, Audio: 18 Hours; text viewer, FM Radio, Line In, Voice Recorder, Much Much More...
Cons: Battery not Replaceable
Summary: I have used the Archos AV500 and it is great but it's lack of some features was a letdown.
The A2 definitely packs those features that are missing on the AV500. It even comes with a leather case that folds back at an angle so you can watch your movies hands-free.
The A2 screen quality is amazing and
the audio quality is incredible. Anyone familiar with iAudio products will know that the sound quality is close to(if not) the best out there. The price is also great competing with the av500. Retail - $400 for 20gb and $450 for 30gb. Doesn't have a 100gb model like archos but maybe in the future.
Also iAudio is constantly releasing firmware that continually upgrades the quality of this product.
The only con this has is the non-removable battery(but it still has great battery life).
Conclusion: Though the Av500 is great, the A2 is phenomonal. I have waiting forever for this thing to be released and finally it's arrived!!! For anyone that wants to watch videos and listen to great sounding music cannot live on without this baby!
