For me the fact RockBox can FF/REW and you can pause and cue to the
beginning of a track is reason enough to install rockbox over the
archos firmware..

It's also real nice to be able to play a game of tetriZ while
listening to a MP3 track.. ;)

Also even in it's initial 'test it while you can' stage recording
works better.. I have NEVER been able to do 48KHz recordings on
archos firmware..
