Archos 3cam vision

 

The sub-$100 MP3 player market is littered with subpar options, but once in a while, we see a standout. With a sleek design and an intuitive, touch-screen-based user interface, the Archos 3cam vision ($99.99 direct) exceeds expectations. The integrated...

Thin, compact frame. Touch screen. Lots of storage for the price. Shoots photos and video. FM radio and recording. Voice recorder. Strong file support

Touch screen isn't terribly sensitive. Navigation of user interface can be jittery. Slow to power up

At $50 less than the iPod nano, the Archos 3cam vision, while less graceful, offers the same storage capacity and similar features—plus a touch screen.

The Archos Vision 3, one of the newest PMPs from Archos, sets to impress with its sleek form, but how does it fare overall?

Works for some...and it doesnt work for some.

 

Ive read alot of reviews and alot of people are disliking this player. saying its touch screen is crap n all. just here to tell you all that if you want this player....go get it. its very nice. one of the best players ever expept zune and itouch.

Awsome Screen ; Touchscreen ; Audio,video,and picture support ; Great sounding fm transmiter ; nice audio quility ; lightweight and not huge and boggy like other players are ; fast usb 2.0

FM transmitter could be better quility ; not the best battery life ; lists music alph. and not by track number ; no thumbnails for quick view of pictures or videos (EPIC FAIL)

Not Flawless, but pretty good!

 

It's not a bad device, but it's got some flaws. First off, Archos "claims" that it can upload almost any video file. This is not true. Every time I try to add an AVI file, the device goes blank and I have to hit the restart button. It'... Expand full...

good solid affordable player

 

There are better players out there. But for the price its good Value and a fun solid player.

good (if not great) battery life, large screen, quality of images very good, drop and drag (big plus), sound is good even with the headphones supplied

you cant add memory, the interface takes a day to get use to (odd scroll wheel but once you get used to it its fine)

Product Specifications

The ARCHOS 3 vision is the latest in a new line of MP3 players, with an impressive 3" tactile screen that covers the whole surface of the device. You can access all your favorite features with the brand new virtual wheel selector, which provides a whole new browsing sensation. No matter where you are in the media library your favorite feature is only a spin away. The ARCHOS 3 vision is extremely compact and lightweight and will easily fit in pretty much any kind of pocket. Yet it's so pretty you may want to show it off instead of hiding it there. Pick your favorite use: you can listen to up to 4,000 songs, stored on a 8GB flash drive, and enjoy superb audio quality for up to 14 hours. Or you can view back photos in a great panoramic view; or you can choose to do both, with music slideshows; why compromise? If you add to that a voice and audio recorder, a stopwatch and a calendar, what you've got here is just the perfect tool at the perfect price.
