Be gentle as this is my first post. I have been looking for a little mp3 player to take on holiday and to the gym and stumbled across this. Seems like a pretty good deal to me, especially with the microSD slot and FM transmitter built in.

Anyone got one of these and can say whether they are decent?

Here are the specs:
Specification
- Integrated USB key with slide out USB connector
- Built-In FM Transmitter - Play your MP3 music through your car radio
- Voice & FM Recorder
- Micro SD Card Slot
- 96x40 LCD Display
- Format: MP3, AAC, WAV & WMA
- High-speed USB 2.0

Although the Archos is a good deal, there no FM Transmitter, anyone know if they make a player with MP3, (possibly video support), DAB and an FM transmitter at a reasonable cost? (ideally one you can connect and external ariael too.)

I miss the FM transmitter from my W980 so I might look into this.

ordered for 18.99!! i will let you all know what its like!

would a sansa clip be a better choice?

Bought this and within weeks it stopped working. Archos replaced it under warranty but then the next one broke too! Nice little MP3 player and the built-in FM transmitter is great, just a shame it keeps breaking!

Got this in asda a few months ago for £10. A bit fiddly to use especially the transmitter bit. One of those bargains you can't resist but then never use.

Was £10 in asda 4 months ago. Transmitter is a bit weak - has to be within about 2-3 meters from the radio. Ok for in-car though. Better off buying a transmitter for your ipod/phone:

got this yesterday not impressed at all!! Very very poor S/W and H/W integration, list of issues
1. No manual Lock/Hold mode, pu tit in my pocket and every step i take, the song changes2
2. The FM Transmitter is weak, even with the headphones on to act as an antenna, it is weak!! In my car I can barely tune into this
3. There is a massive THUD everytime you change the song, ike it is actually picking up a disc inside, and this doesnt sound god when you have the volume tuned up!
4. In my car I set up the song and set the TX up and moment I plug it into the USB, it shuts down!! And has to be restarted and re setup while plugged it!!
5. The Volume change is a pain, you have to press three different buttons to change the volume..REALLLLLY!!!!
6. Viewing folders is going to take foreever, you want to listen to the 40th song... good like spending a min to find it!

I am sending mine back. The bass is non existant and the lack of hold button is a complete DEAL breaker for me. I had really really high hopes for this one. Anyone want this for a £10 plu P+P from me with the bill, let me know. Otherwise I'll be sending it back tonight!!
