Subject: Re: What would you get right now?

My JBR-FM is only a week old, and the F1 key is already inside the unit.
I have sent 2 e-mails to Archos support, but they have not yet responded.

Subject: What would you get right now?

Stick a fork in me, I'm done. My second FMR, this one only weeks old, is
gone. First the looping while trying to boot, now happening about every
boot attempt, and now a broken display. I saw some sort of black stuff that
looked like padding floating around on the display yesterday. Tonight the
display broke as I pushed one of the function keys. I'm finished with FMRs.
Just can't take the "quality".

Now I'm needing a suggestion as to what to buy. I'd like to keep the
display like the FMR has if I could. Great execution of Rockbox, of course.
At least 15 gig and preferably 20 gig. Must be something available from
vendors that offer replacement warranties (NOT some ebay schmuck). I don't
have the time right now to do a hard drive swap so buying another studio 10
from Amazon and swapping in a larger drive isn't an option.
