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
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
I had to say something sooner or later.
