Im not sure if this is the correct section for discussing the AV400 range, but I primarily use it as an mp3 player - I bought an Archos AV480 back in November - I was after a hard-disk based mp3 player and was seduced by the 60gb IPod Photo, until I saw the Archos - The fact it was only about £60 dearer and yet it had 80gbs of memory and a docking station which allowed for the Archos to be used like Tivo-type device and record TV, I thought it sounded amazing. I certainly wasn't disapointed when I got the device - Absolutely no copy protection for mp3s and the ability to drag and drop my mp3s directly into the Music Folder on my Archos using Windows. The quality of recordings of the tv were excellent and surpassed our VCR's recording quality - I loved it. But unfortunately, I am now in the position where i am awaiting my second replacement AV480 - The first one's screen just totally lost it and looked shatttered on the inside, despite no impact from me. Only a couple of weeks ago my replacement Archos failed as music would no longer play on it even after a reformat. Which brings me to the topic of this thread - I love my Archos, but I have no faith in it and believe it is likely to break at any moment - I always kept the Archos in it's leather case when on the move and treated it with totaly respect - With only a 12 month warrenty on a £500 product, I cant afford to risk keeping this and it is my intention to sell the brand-new sealed replacement (reduced price because of no warranty) when I receive it because it would be just my luck that it works from now until a couple of weeks after my warrenty runs out and then Im left stuck. Could someone confirm that my warranty runs from when I bought the original product and doesn't restart when I got the new one replaced (that doesn't sound right to me!) Has anyone else heard that these Archos AV480s are unreliable? Anyway, I am now reluctantly looking for another Hard Disk Mp3 player - colour screen, album art, great sound, and as many different playmodes as possible a must - Does anyone have any advice on what I should buy?
