Subject: Re: Archos sending out refurbished units as new?
From: Chris Hoekstra (chris_hoekstra_at_hotmail.com)
Date: 2003-04-01


Except my display went out after 8 months. I paid quite a bit for my
recorder as it was brand new at the time. I would be seriously pissed
if I got 8 months out of a $350 unit and had to purchase another one
because the warranty was out!
