Subject: RE: Archos Total Cost of Ownership
From: Frog Killer (frogkiller01_at_hotmail.com)
Date: 2003-12-10


Knowing what you have and what you can do with it, pricesless. I have a AJB
20, Had it for almost 2 years. Thank god I found Rockbox. Today I ordered a
AJBR 20 ($234.61 with shipping included
http://www.shopperwiz.com/shopdisplaydetail.asp?id=330136&Ref=FROOGLE&ts=20031210&Key=084003640).
Not that I will be using the record feature much, but I want to have these
things for a long time. I have never had a problem with this thing. The only
problem is the same everyone had when when they got theirs; the archos
frimware.

Rockbox ROCKS!

I had to say something sooner or later.
