Archos 1 Vision MP3 Player 4GB - Black £21.99 (£24.99 @ Play)

Smaller than a credit card and lighter than a pack of gum with a playback time of over 20 hours

Interface
The ARCHOS 1 vision features a straightforward interface, without any useless details. Photo, video and music are reachable in just a few clicks. Speaking of which, the “ARCHOS 1 vision” features a music library displaying your files by artist, album and song title allowing even more ease of use. Just drag and drop files from your PC to the ARCHOS 1 vision using the standard USB 2.0 connection.

Music
The ARCHOS 1 vision will meet most all your music needs: a small, very reasonably priced device, featuring a 4GB* disk capacity to store more than 2,000 songs1. This means days of non-stop music. And with the support of the MP3 and WMA files, you’re covered as these are the two most popular file formats. And for those with an affinity for the more exotic formats, it supports FLAC, WAV and APE files as well.

Photo
You can also clearly show your pictures on the 1.5’’ color TFT screen. It’s a great way to keep a handy photo album with you.

Audio Recorder
The ARCHOS 1 vision is equipped with a built-in microphone to let you record anything you want, instantly. From a phone number you can’t write down, to a class lecture, or even what’s playing on the radio, you can record it all.

Features:
- Store and listen to more than 2,000 songs
- Play MP3, WMA, FLAC, APE and WAV music files

Looks like a decent unit for the price - quite lenghty review on youtube if you want to see more detail. NB though - it is available new on Ebay for £19.99 if you care to go that way.

Got one of these a couple of months ago. On the face of it seemed like a bargain, but I wish I'd spent a bit more on a Sansa Clip+.

Pros: Lots of storage for the money, colour screen. Pretty good battery life.

Cons: Shuffle mode doesn't work properly (first song is repeated every 3 or 4 songs). Cheaply made. Awkward button placement. No resume after power off. Sound quality not that great.

Got my daughter one of these last year off there and the player is not that bad she takes it all over with her and it don't take that long to charge aswell.

Brill!

Bought one of these six months ago as a back up for my Sansa Clip+. In my opinion, it's not bad value for the money. Archos is a quality brand. It's plastic construction but decent quality materials. Software and audio quality is again ok in that it does all the things you would reasonably expect. I previously posted a quick method to achieve resume after power off.

However, except for the fact that the Archos will display limited colour images and video, the Sansa Clip+ beats the Archos hands down in each and every department. It has a radio, expandibility via the microsd card slot, better audio quality, on-going support etc etc. Time it right and you can get a Sansa Clip+ 2gb for £29.99. Much better value IMHO.

Excellent *budget* device. Bought one for my young daughter a year ago & she is very happy with it.
I would recommend this product; if you have more to spend, then buy an iPod or whatever.

Do they sell them in Archos?

Sorry to be a stick in the mud but why do people buy MP3 players when even the most basic phones can play music reasonably well. Its just another gadget to carry around surely?

Time it right and you can get a Sansa Clip+ 2gb for £29.99.


If you don't mind getting a manufacturer-refurbed unit, you can get one of these - a 2gb Clip+ - right now on fleabay (UK supplier) for £20 delivered. That's what I did.

I have to agree with chrisgw3. I too wished I went for the Sansa Clip

i bought this a few months back for abt £17 from memorybits (used a now expired code), but have gone back to my old creative zen because the shuffle mode simply does not work. Apparently this is a cheap Chinese MP3 player rebadged by Archos, so there seems to be little chance of a firmware update to correct this.

I'll leave this deal standing on its own mertis, but... someone called Archos "a quality brand". Now, in order to ballance the view ... FWIW, I have never owned an Archos device that lasted longer than 6 months. And i had a few. (I must be a masochist :)

To add insult to injury, their business model involves changing all accessories / connections (for no apparent technical reason) in order to extract money out of their customers. I, personally would not treat this any differently to any cheap far eastern generic MP3 player.

Not voted either way.

Topazz, can't find your post about this, could you repeat or post a link. Thx.

Edit: found it now, google succeeded where the useless HUKD search failed. Post #37 in this thread: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/archos-1-vision-mp3-player-4gb-myme/590453?page=2

I contacted Archos support about the shuffle problem and was ignored. This was my 3rd Archos product and I think it will be my last. I too paid £17 but it's not a bargain if it sits in a drawer because it's unpleasant to use.

Archos customer services are a KNIGHTMARE, so if anything goes wrong with this and you have to send it to them expect delay after delay and take what they say with a pinch of salt, i have been a victim of one of there shoddy products. Never Again..........

Just found this as I searched for deals on am MP3 player for my husband as his died. For the second time. He has this exact Archos 1 player. First one died after a couple of months, the second one just died yesterday (about 5 or 6 months in). Mymemory did replace it the first time, don't know if they will this time but don't know if I'll bother, either. Great item while it works, but the money would've been better spent towards a better model.
