Subject: Should I Buy a Recorder or FM Recorder?
From: doctor23 (doctor23_at_aye.net)
Hi. I'm a newbie trying to decide which model of player to buy. It's
pretty much between the Recorder and the FM recorder. I like the look
and controls of the FM Recorder better, but I'm a bit nervous about the
Li Battery. When my current player (an Intel Pocket Concert) runs out of
juice, I just swap the rechargeables for a fresh pair and keep on
rockin'. Can you do the same with a Recorder, or is the process too
cumbersome to be done routinely?
I've also heard that the FM's built-in battery offers longer run time
than the rechargeables in the Recorder. Anybody have any real-world data
on the subject?
Also, I've read in the list archives that Rockbox isn't being developed
by the core team for the FM Recorder. Does this mean that the different
models will have different capabilites when running Rockbox?
Thanks in advance for any info. Frankly, RockBox is the reason I'm
buying an Archos. The existence of such a dedicated and skilled
community of supporters makes me much more confident in taking the
plunge with a hard drive player. Keep up the good work, team.
