Subject: RE: durability
From: David Greenfield (dgreenfield_at_taltrade.com)

That's very decent of them. I believe BestBuy have stopped carrying the FM. I don't want an AV320 device, however. I want an FM radio + MP3 player + decent software + decent hardware interface + portable size + affordable price. The Archos seemed to fit the bill at the time. I'm don't feel I'm asking for a lot.

While it's a disappointment and an annoyance while changing from mp3 to radio, it's not sufficient to send me back to the store. Maybe just-before the warranty runs out.

The Best Buy Service Plans are awesome, aren't they. My F2 key broke
also, and took it up to Best Buy and they gave me credit toward a new
AV320. That is a sweet unit, but unfortunately, RockBox is not available
for it. (hint...hint) The Archos Firmware sucks.

RE: durability

I've had my FM for just about 12 months now. Earlier this week, the F2 key
pushed in and won't come back out. It usually sits on my desk for 10 hours
a day and in my breast pocket for a couple of hours between home and work.
I've been pleased overall. The depressed F2 key still works (more or less)
for changing the radio presets (but I wonder why). I'd return it to
BestBuy (via 2 year extended warranty I purchased) if I thought I could
get a replacement device with more or the same features but I don't think
I can. Maybe that will change in the next year. Overall, I'd rate it 100%
for features and software (Rockbox, that is), 90% for durability.
