This review is from: Archos - 14 Vision - 4GB MP3/MP4 Player w/ FM Radio (501509)
Pros: - It's pretty cheap!
- Plays music
- Decent battery life
Cons: - Poor controls and no hold button (buttons get pressed in my pockets)
- Lint and dust has gotten behind the screen
- All of the labeling has been rubbing off.
- Occasionally freezes and restarts (usually accompanied with loud static; it's really unpleasant)
- Power button doesn't always work
- Shuffle feature randomly picks a song on the event of clicking the next button as opposed to generating a random playlist order; i.e. if you skip past a song you wanted to hear on shuffle, you can't go back to play it.
- You cant go Artist -> Album -> Song. You can list only by artist, album, OR song.
Other Thoughts: I'm usually a fan of archos; they generally have well constructed, solid, linux-run media devices. It's great that this was so cheap, and I DO still use it, but if you want to do anything other than listen to songs, get something else. If you just want a cheap mp3 player like I did, it's still alright.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast, 64 bit, easily overclocks past 3 GHz, 4 CORES
Cons: nothing considering the priceREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Comes with heatsink, easy to install, motherboard detected all 8 gigs (I bought two of these), price is pretty good ($76.99 each)
Cons: not the best for overclocking
Other Thoughts: Got this with an intel 2.4 Ghz quad-core OC'd to 3.05 (very stable I could easily push it higher) computer runs so much better with multi-tasking and I can render video much faster, next upgrade will be a video cardREAD FULL REVIEW
