It looks nice. I wish I could see one Archos commercial on American TV. Just one. I never see any. Just iPod....

That's a good question. Why doesn't ARCHOS adverstise on American TV? The payback will be tremendous. It would lessen the gap between the iPod and the Archos family of products.

They probably cant afford it yet. CircuitCity is the first major retail chain they got to carry there products (even though there going out of business) and they probably just don't have the money hell besides the Zune I cant remember any other mp3 commercials in America. Besides it is being sold by a phone company so they probably are the ones who had the commercial made, like, when they advertise a new phone. The commercial is by the phone company not the manufacturer.

Archos is in Circuit City, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Sams Club, basically all of them.

When Archos will have many TV advertising, it will be through a partner such as Dish Networks or a carrier who will want to advertise for it cause they use Archos to attract more customers.

I agree with Circuit City but not the others. You can't buy Archos products in the stores and WalMart is the only one to sell the 5 or 7. The other only offer gen 4 and gen 5 devices. I just checked Target, Costco and WalMart's web site to verify. WalMart says the sell the 250gig 5 in stores but they don't have one within 100 miles of me (Atlanta).

Circuit City - stocks the 250GB (I know firsthand!)
Walmart - none within 100 miles
Target - online only, no mention of 5 or 7 only 05 series
Best Buy - online only (for the USA)
Sam's Club - nothing indicated
Costco - nothing indicated

This is not good visibility for such a good product

Saying they can't afford to advertise on US TV because they aren't selling any is like saying you can't drink a glass of water because your throat is too dry to swallow.

Yes, Archos is not as big a company as Apple, but how did Apple get to be that way? The whole game in consumer products is branding. No one really cares about what an iPhone can do, but everyone I know wants one.

Didn't say cause there not selling. I am saying because they don't have the money. Think about what time you would have to advertise, what channels, and what shows, that would reach there target audience and just how much it would cost to do it. Ipod and apple commercials run practically 24/7 and on almost every major show but they can afford that. Zune commercials.... hell I haven't even seen a Zune commercial in a while and Microsoft has the money. Apple has saturated the airwaves and taken all the good spots. Its really not worth the money to try and air a commercial when no one will really see it. They are going to have to keep chipping away online and through word of mouth.

At some point they will have to invest money to make money and that includes some advertising. There are other good and interesting players available, Cowon, iRiver, but virtually no one knows about them -- only the people who take the time to research and then finally find the player. I'm not saying the Archos has to flood the airways, but *something*. As was indicated, perhaps in conjunction with a HSDPA provider.

In England I've found archos in woolworths, argos, many other places. Once I even saw one in the carphone warehouse.

Also stocked in http://www.shop.bt.com/ and you get 3% Quidco discount as well so the price works out quite nice.
