1 out of 5 eggs Not very good 06/12/2011

This review is from: Archos - 14 Vision - 4GB MP3/MP4 Player w/ FM Radio (501509)

Pros: compact

Cons: Numerous
-short battery life (1-2 hrs, 3 MAX)
-buttons are hard to push, yet easily get hit while MP3 player is in your pocket !
-shuffle play is..amazingly predictable (repeatable)
-screen fills with dust
-buttons are extremely close to one another, likely to hit the wrong one (volume up/down, seek +/-)
-2 separate power buttons (1 button, 1 switch)
-takes 5-15seconds to TURN ON
-Impossible to Resume a song from where you left off after last power-down
-pics/images/video are a non-event (poor software conversion & fuzzy playback)

-no longer turns on after 7 months of ownership (dead). Experienced no unusual usage or abuse.

Other Thoughts: Now using my 6yr old creative zen as an interim until my new Creative zen300 player shows up from amzn.

Find Something else to waste 30-40 bucks on...
