105 now less than £20 in UK

Post by ccs_digital »

Gosh, not the most active Archos forum :(

Perhaps things will pick up now that the 105 is available for £19.97 here in the UK at Currys (both in store and online).

I bought a 105 today as a more pocketable MP3 solution than my 605. Initial impressions are that it is a nicely designed and built unit with good sound quality (particularly with better 'phones, eg Creative EP630).

Updating the firmware to the latest version (1.6.07) gives a more 605-like appearance to the user interface within the limits of the 105's screen resolution.

All I need now is a decent case for it (I know Archos do one, but with the postage it's almost as expensive as the player itself!).

just picked up one of these little things from curry, last one in my area they had flown off the shelves!. all i can say is this thing is tiny!. the player is pretty simple and basic, but ideal for my young daughter that cant keep her hands of my 5 or 605.

It's a great MP3 player, but no good for video.

Stroage is OK, but a bit limited at 2Gb.

For £20, it's a bargain - bought mine in December 2007 for £49.

just a heads up, the player is back up to full price in currys, but amazon.co.uk has them for just under £25 inc delivery.
there is limited stock, ive just bought another 3 so get there quick if you want one.
