      I think you’ll love this MP3 player from Archos. Rather than try and deliver on all counts, bringing in multifunction and compromising on overall quality, this impressive devices sticks with its strengths and delivers a very strong MP3 player with an added video playback option.

      With its attractive brown finish, it looks distinct and different from the usual slew of silver and black options out there. With its sleek and small design, it’s also very stylish and incredibly portable.

      There’s a standard sized screen of 2 inches, nothing too special, but more than enough for what you need. You’ll be able to browse your tracks and use the interface with ease and comfort, and before long you’ll know the inner workings of your device.

      The storage of this device is particularly impressive. While it comes with a built in 8 GB

      of storage, you can add more with a memory card as this device carries a Micro-SD port allowing for a substantial amount of tracks. However, even with just the 8GB, you can store a great deal. There’s space for up to 4000 tracks at basic settings or 2500 photos in JPEG format. Audio can be uploaded in either MP3 or WMA format, so you can pick your format dependant on your preference for quality and storage needs.

      Playback is also impressive, with up to 20 hours of playback from a fully charged battery. With its built in battery and USB storage you won’t have to bother with buying batteries, and there’s a quick recharge time so you can slip it into a USB port and be ready to enjoy your tracks again in no time at all. If you do want ...

      • to use the video playing options, there’s 4 hours video playback from a full battery at basic settings.

        The playback also boasts an impressive selection of modes. Unlike the cheaper models, you’ll have the option for repeat and shuffle, which is great for spicing up your daily listening. The sound quality is also impressive, and the included earphones are of much better quality than what you’d usually expect from a packaged set.

        Another nice touch is the built in voice recorder, perfect if you’re after an impromptu Dictaphone. The recording and playback quality is pretty impressive, even with the built in microphone and won’t swallow up too much space on your device.

        This’ll work with most systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux; which I find to be an impressive feat when held up against rival devices.

        But it’s the built in

        port for the memory card which I find particularly impressive, letting you decide what exactly you want to use this device for. Without a memory card, it’s a great MP3 player but if you do invest in a card than it can become a very nifty video player. With AVI playback, the quality is pretty decent and means you can have more substantial clips on hand to keep yourself entertained.

        At just under £40, this device falls somewhere between the very affordable and the slightly higher end of the market, but when you factor in the memory card capability the device suddenly becomes a lot more desirable. It’s worth considering the price of the additional memory card, but if you search online you’ll find one for a decent price.

        A great item, but it’s worth considering this before you splash out.
