Mini review will be coming for sure.

Ecniv, if the archos has a 7" screen, how big is the unit?

Seems to me there's a trade-off between nice big clear screen, and something that's easily portable and doesn't take up much space / weigh too much...

I also looked at the Jobo, but am leaning toward the epson still. Haven't actually put my hands on the archos...

Just looked at the Epson P-5000 ...

Hmmm, that does look a quality bit of kit!  Noticed that it also supports Music and Video!

Yeah, though I'd only use it for that occassionally - apparently while it's ok with that stuff, the dedicated mp3 players are probably better (though smaller screens...)

gonna do a bit more research tomorrow, will keep you posted

I Won a used 40GB Flashtrax XT on e-Bay it dowloads photos from a CF card ok But I bought it to use as a MP3 Player as well and I have had nothing but problems trying to download music files.
for photos it is Bulkier than other offerings but it works well the large lcd screen is a bonus I bought it mainly for holiday use and to download and store images after a days shooting - But I am in dispute with the seller at the moment re: the Music download problem the music isn,t copyright protected so it should download ??
!!! Photography is A Mystery to me BUT i LOVE it !!!

Bobity - do you need to go through software to load the hd? or can it be a hd plugged in via usb? If the latter, why d/l? or is it not playing tracks you've d/l ed?
If the former - perhaps there is something in the software that checks the mp3s for drm stuff?

Edit:
FlashtraxXT Found some info on flashtraxxt. Says something about only playing DRM files? May be it will refuse to play mp3s that aren't drm'ed...
Other than that sounds like a decent buy - especially the reading raw.. .though is that as slow as on a pc..?
