Nice Toy, Tracy.


How portable is this thing? It looks like you could throw in windows with it... (or thin walls )

ITs about the same size as the iPod. Only difference is the thickness. I dont ever carry this thing there, but while in a jam and in need of both hands, I was able to fit it in my jean pocket. Real tight, but I got it in there!! I'm a big advocate for Archos MP3 Players.

I own an iPod, and I've played around with the Archos. The Archos "feels" like it is twice as big. The iPod is probably about the size of that nomad you have on your website.

Well, I know I don't need two hands to squeeze it down my jeans pocket. It's about the size of a deck of cards.

The iPod has a 1.8 inch drive in it. I think archos has a 2.5 inch drive?

I have seen them side by side, and the Archos player has a good bit more bulk to it due to the larger hard drive. The difference in size alone wouldn't be enough to sway my buying decision, but the fact I can't afford either and don't want either does .

Tracylynn and other Windows users: Check out
http://www.mediafour.com/xplay/
for software that will let you use the iPod on a PC. It's in beta test mode right now, and there's a free download.

Not affiliated with them, just a Windows user who's had his eye on the iPod.

A friend of mind just purchased an Archos. He got it becuase it uses the same HD as a laptop uses so he could upgrade it. He now has a 20GB drive in it. I heard it and it sounds pretty good but I really don't listen to MP3s that much so I haven't purchased one myself.

Rio is coming out with a new HD-Mp3 player. It looks and sounds like its going to be sweet. It also looks FRIGGIN HUGE and they haven't released measurements so I don't have much of an opinion on it.
