2 out of 5 eggs Hey, at least it's cheap... 09/30/2011

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

Pros: - It's pretty cheap!

- Plays music

- Small

- 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.

Wintec AMPX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 3AXT6400C5-4096K

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

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 card
