Hello Mike,
About your FM unit,
Do the batteries need to be soldered in, or can you buy them and install
them yourself?
And, does the FM unit have a 1 year warranty like the recorder?

I don't know whether quality control is any different across the entire
Archos range. However I can say that my FM unit has been in use every day
since January, and is still going strong, despite most of it's use when
out walking. It is also heavily used as a backup device to transport many
thougands of files between locations. I have not had any problem with it.
