Subject: Re: Poll, please read: What's your next MP3 player? Have you hardware problems with your Archos?
Rockbox availability would be very desirable, but not a deal breaker IF
the vendor supplied software was any good. So I guess that would be a 4.
Features, sound quality, and ruggedness would make the decision. I
especially want scheduled recording (that is a 5).
I have had two Archos units fail, both just barely out of warranty. I had
them repaired by a third party, after deciding that Archos support was
worth than useless.
Both are functional and I use one or the other every day.
