Don’t…

archos-605

Buy an Archos video player. We bought one for my wife last year for when she is traveling. It’s not actually been used yet but I was trying to record some TV programs for her this weekend for an upcoming trip and the bloody thing died with what I can only call ‘the white screen of death’.
I managed to get it working after missing half an hour of the program I was trying to record and it lost pretty much everything on there, including wiping the saved videos from the SD card I had in there.

So it’s gone off to be repaired. Thankfully we bought an extended warranty for the thing so no questions asked but it’s a nuisance all the same and if it’s not reliable, what’s the point of it. Seems the error codes (101, 102) it throws is pretty common too.

It’s a shame because it’s a nice unit otherwise and the screen is much easier to see than an iPod Touch, but as I say, if it’s not reliable, what’s the point.

Bloody technology!
