it looks like if a mate of mine is less techie than I thought. He had
a Archos Recorder v1 (Usb2, 20 GB hard dis) for nearly a year after I
convinced him that it is a good hardware and an even better software.
Then he started to dislike it, he didn't ever really use it, plus he
is a very careful guy.
He finally bought an iPod, which he totally loves.
So I offered him (since I got really bad remorse) to sell his archos
on this list for him.
I am currently checking it, if everything is fine with it and so on.
Now to a couple of facts:
- Recorder v1, new serie with USB2
- 20 GB hard disk
- Black bumpers
- The rechargeable batteries are probably bad, I am gonna to check
this anyway and will pack some functional rechargeable batteries in
it, but they will not be much more worthy than the orginial ones.
- Full accessory set complete: Manual, Charger, Usb-Cable, Headphones,
eventually a stereo-cable
There is furthermore the car kit included (if I get different offers
that allow to sell them separately, I will do). Car kit included:
Cigarette lighter plug charger, Remote Control (I have to check the
functionality again), Casette-Player-Adapter.
There is just one drawback, while I am thinking about: The unit is not
We could think about upgrading the hard disk to a 40 GB as well, if
somebody needs and is willing to pay more for that. I got such a
harddisk laying around.
I would be glad to sell this unit to a blind user or something like
that. Someone who is really able to use it.
I would prefer selling it within Europe somewhere. No offense to
"outsiders", it's just that I would prefer to NOT hassle with the
customs and so on.
If you want, I can preinstall the newest rockbox with voice-ui as well.
Due to the fact that the unit is nearly new, I expect to sell the unit
for about 150 to 200 Euro.
Please reply to me privately.
