Hi Glen,

Yours is the V2 recorder. The one below is the V1. Reputed to be a better
design with headphone jack on the side. More reliable then the V2. And of
course, replaceable AA batteries. Archos no longer manufactures the V1 or
the FMR. The V2 uses the old FMR box with no FM radio. Unless you were
lucky or, unlucky as some would say to get a special V2 with a surprise FM

I just bought a JBR 20 for 165$s new from Amazon.
No FM, but I don't use that feature much on my current unit.
But I might if the voice menus could work with it.

I have found a place here in the U.S. that is selling brand new factory
sealed Recorder 20's (version1) for $249.20, Archos part #500277 Their website says
they also have Recorder 10's for $225. I called them because I didn't
believe that it was a, version1, I made the guy make sure it was a
#500277, he said they have about twenty more. I just received mine
today I order it on 4-30. I haven't tried it yet but it has blue
bumpers, hopefully it is flashable the one have had for a year isn't.
The only problem I see is this from their website:
/*All defective/opened merchandise must be returned/replaced with the
manufacturer. There is no store warranty on any product(s), unless &
otherwise specified on our website.*/
Will Archos refund (for an discontinued product) if the unit is defective?

He who hesitates....
