Good price delivered Gary but out of stock when you try buying it.

Good find! Also available for Home Delivery so just ordered 2 for Xmas presents!

Quite a few branches near Camberley in Surrey have these in stock if anyone is interested .

The Trusted Reviews erm...review is a bit negative. However it was based on the £60 RRP

I'm torn as I have a 2GB Zen Stone PLus for my son for Christmas, but this looks better on the surface

Thanks - ordered one for my daughter

If you're also considering the Creative Zen Stone Plus you maybe interested in this Creative dock. £2.97 (collect at store), at least £15 elsewhere:

Got it already. I'm unsure whether to get this Archos and flog the Stone as this does video (albeit a bit limited) and is a much bigger step up from the 256MB job he has now

stick with the stone, is the video part just a novelty ? on a screen this size

A lad a work had what I thought was one of these things and had downloaded movies on to it, I take it this wouldn't be able to do that?

The conclusion of the Trustedreviews article says "Archos' 105 isn't a bad player for the money. Just under £60 gets you an attractive, well-designed piece of kit, a reasonably-sized colour LCD screen and decent usability as well, all of which are hard to come by at this end of the market." So if they based it off £20, I'm sure it would get 10/10 for value for money!

Pcworld Online dont match Currys... in store they do.

Got one reserved near where I live in Essex but just checked the specifications below.
Is no headphones normal ?
Maybe I'm getting old !

????

Built in games NO
Built in Wi-Fi connection NO
Connection USB2
LCD Display1.8 inches
Software CD supplied NO
Shuffle/program/repeat NO
Headphones Included NO
Rechargeable batteries NO

I am presuming this wont plya avi or xvid files ? Shame you cant expand the memory as well with sd or something 2gb is tiny these days but for £20 you cant complain !

Got 1 reserved at Luton, thanks op. H&R

Other retailers confirm it comes with headphones.

Latest firmware/updates here:

Might this argos.co.uk/sta…JUN be a better option. What do you guys think ?

i have reserved one at bishopbriggs, i don,t have a clue about these things! can this be placed in a docking station and do i need to buy anything else for it? thanks for any advice in advance!

well now i think this is easier for me to understand! :roll: i have managed to reserve 2 and the docking station at motherwell all the ones nearer were sold out! thanks. :thumbsup:

I'd personally go for the Archos over the Wharfdale. Archos are one of the biggest brands in France, whereas Wharfdale are cheap tat sold for Argos.

OK, its only 2gb, but the screen is good quality and build is first rate.

Voted hot.

Argh! I now have 2 of these ordered from Currys but 2 of the Wharfedales reserved at my local Argos. These are just for Xmas gifts so might just go for the Wharfedales but the Archos looks much better quality.

Archos has a delivery charge but the Wharfedales are excluded from the 30 day argos returns policy.

Not sure what to keep!

now am confused! i have 2 reserved at argos and 1 at curry,s!

thanks for your help, i,m going to get the one from argos now as it is for my son, but i want one that has a radio with it so will have to keep looking!

If 2GB is a little small for anyone, Currys have a number of cheap multimedia players available for 'reserve and collect'.

currys.co.uk/mar…rue

Bummer all sold out near me....:-(

i,m trying to find one with a radio, i see with the nano you can buy an adapter thing to connect to give you radio sure thats how it goes but i,m not exactly clued up on modern technology!

Do you want an mp4 player for mp3? if the latter i recommend the sandisk sansa, £10 more than this player but looks better(imo) and is about half the size of it(slightly bigger than shuffle), quality is great and currys had the 4gb silver one for £40(not on there website) which i just bought. Its very quick when compared to my others as i got around 4MB/s on 1gb of songs and most are much slower (cheaper ones anyways) and its also backed with a 2 year warranty. It also has radio and voice recorder.

Good deal voted hot.

that sounds what i,m looking for thanks will see if i can get one now.:thumbsup:

JUst so you know its slightly annoying to use it wioth the pc, you need to shove it on hold and hold the middle button while your connecting it to the pc, its good once its recognised though :P. USB cable is very short to so make sure you have access to front usb ports or a hub(or buy a new £1 cable). Other than that its really good, sound quality is nice along with volume control.

Connects via USB cable no probs for me :thumbsup: just tell it to ''charge battery'' or ''connect via USB'' Drag and drop from WMP, very easy. Its a well constructed great little player.

Good spot - just got one from Currys in Speke (Liverpool) today. A nice little companion for my Archos 605. Good build and sound quality (especially with better 'phones).

Latest firmware improves the user interface to make it look (and work) like the other 5th Gen Archos's (Archi?) - it can be downloaded from Archos website as mentioned elsewhere.

Got one! Suits my needs, just need some quality headphones :thumbsup:

Try some Creative EP630's - way better than supplied Archos 'phones. Should be less than a tenner at Amazon or Play

Thanks, would they be better than the ones play.com sell. Reduced from £39 to £7.99?
