4-0 out of 5 stars All around good player
i got this player for Christmas. The setup was fairly easy. I like the fact that i can use it was a back-up hard drive too. The Archos frimware is very iffy so i reconmend getting the rockbox one. It is better and has different fonts and even includes games like tetris. THis made the player better. It helps to have USB2.0 to help with faster tranfers. Transfers are easy becuase it shows up as another hard drive so it is a drag and drop job. Good player

Pros
rechargable battery
upgradeable firmware
memory
capability
good looks
ok battery life

Cons
size (on the heavy size)
included headphones

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
As a basic MP3 player its it pretty good. Its 15GB capacity should be sufficient for most users and the USB connectivity is good too. However, it is bulkier and heavier than the Creative Labs Zen.

5-0 out of 5 stars More than just an MP3 box...
I've had my Jukebox Recorder 15 for about six months now, been getting used to 'living with it', so to speak. In that time, I've gotten VERY accustomed with using it. Yes, like anything with a great deal of complexity in a simple package, there's a bit of a learning curve. But once you figure out how to 'handshake' with this box (and it doesn't take long), you find that it's quite intuitive, and navigating through its functions is a breeze.

Audio quality? Excellent, both on record and playback. The unit can RECORD (which is VERY nice) via a line-level analog or digital input, which makes this a great device for hooking to a line-level output from a stereo to transfer pesky non-digital sources such as vinyl or tape. It can handle qualities up to 320kbps in constant or variable bit rates. Playback audio is excellent and rather powerful for a portable device.

The internal battery is very convenient, IMHO...all it takes is a few hours of charging and you can get some 10 or so hours of playback time. No running out to drop some dough on more batteries needed, nope.

BUT...that's not all, folks. The nice thing here is that this also can function as a removeable drive, with USB transfer capabilities. So you can cram some MP3s in there, some large project, etc etc...and take more than just music with you. This'll be convenient for anyone who has to transport large files, such as multitrack session files for music types, or big graphics files for artists, or some specifically-needed piece of software that needs to move around, etc etc. Use your imagination, you'll find uses.

Plus, of course, this works with anything...sure, you can make an iPod work with a Windows box, but it's not quite so 'happy'. So with this being more 'generic', it seems to help with ease of use/connectability issues for different platforms. Just find a USB port and get busy.

The only flaws here lie in the headphones. They're pretty uncomfortable. But this is easy enough to remedy and, in fact, WORTH remediation by getting a much better set of 'cans' and using those with the Jukebox Recorder 15. You can appreciate the excellent quality of audio you'll get out of a well-encoded MP3 with this box that way.

I'm planning to take mine into some studio sessions I have coming up next month (June 2003) so that I can convert and 'dump' various mixes of tracks in MP3 format to the box so that they can be reviewed outside the studio, at leisure. It's good enough, IMHO, that even semi-pro-type usage of Archos's machine in this way is warranted. Very cool little machine, this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply great!
It is a very good product, simple to use and efficient. I just spent two hours understanding its operation. I have loaded hundreds of songs and have a lot of space left. It is not a lot heavier than the 64Mb units and the space is huge. I recommend it to every one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy This Jukebox!
This is one great piece of technology. I bought my Archos Jukebox Recorder 15 off of ...Amazon.com and it was the best choice I have ever made. The sound quality is Great. I have tons of my favorite songs on it and it barley took any memory. The controls are really easy to learn and i set it up in a half an hour that includes getting all my songs onto it. The only down side to the product it the manual doesnt give you much information to start off with. This is just my opinion though. I have had only one dificulty with the software but that was strictly user error. The battery charge seems to last forever and it is one loud ...(which is definetly needed for metal). I would definetly recommend this MP3 player. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The Archos 500201 Jukebox HD-MP3 Player-Recorder is one of those rare hardware products that are surprising in nearly every way. The first surprise is its small size. You'd expect an MP3 player equipped with a 6 GB hard drive to be at least the size of a portable CD player, but the Archos Jukebox takes up little more space than a deck of playing cards. The rounded corners are covered in thick blue rubber, adding shock protection for the relatively fragile internal hard drive and providing just enough grip to keep the player from sliding off a car dash (although we recommend you leave it on the seat).

Archos provides nearly everything you need to get the most out of this device right out of the box, including a USB cable for connecting the device to your PC and an audio adapter cable that lets you connect the headphone jack or input jack on top of the Jukebox to the RCA input or output jacks on your stereo equipment. This allows for all sorts of possibilities. You can easily output audio from the Jukebox to your stereo equipment, or hook the device up to a tape player and record your tapes directly into MP3 format. It's this ability to record that really sets the Archos Jukebox apart from the pack.

Another nice thing about the Archos Jukebox is that you can use it as a portable hard drive as well as an MP3 player-recorder. Take it between home and work and use it to transport all your important files. Take it to the library to download files and listen to music as you bring them home.

All this would be for naught if the audio playback quality wasn't up to snuff, but output is stellar. Provided the MP3 recordings you have are of high quality, the Archos Jukebox plays them back without a trace of hiss, popping, or other anomalies, and the fidelity is outstanding. The device really thumps out the low-frequency bass, while maintaining crisp, tight mid- and high-frequency output even at the limits of its amplification.

The LCD display on the front of the unit makes it easy to navigate folders and load playlists, as well as control the unit's advanced features like the bass boost, balance controls, and playback modes. One of the nicest things about the display is that it is flanked by four green LEDs, which provide even backlighting without consuming much power.

The pitiful headphones included with the device are about the only thing we could find fault with, along with the fact that you can't listen to music through the headphone jack when the device is connected to a PC. You can play the MP3 files stored within using MP3 playback software installed on the PC, however, and the package comes with a copy of Musicmatch Jukebox to get you started.

It also comes with a driver CD, but we didn't even need it to use the Archos Jukebox with Windows XP. We plugged it in, XP instantly recognized it as an external hard drive, and we were in business. All this convenience comes at a relatively high price, but it's worth it if you need the recording abilities this device offers. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Excellent output quality
  • Can record directly into MP3 format
  • Uses rechargeable batteries that last for a long time and comes with an AC adapter
  • Playlists and music folders can be copied directly from a PC to keep everything organized.

Cons:

  • Low-quality headphones
  • Relatively expensive considering there are 20GB MP3 players on the market

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product. Over all convient and easy to use.
I've had an Archos for about 2 months now. It's a great media for playing all your mp3's (assuming you don't have more than 5.7 gigs of mp3's.)

Pros: Battery life lasts 10 hours when fully charged. Comes with Adapter to charge batteries in 6 hours. Can listen to music while charging. Set of spare batteries that will probably never be needed (I've yet to have to change them, and that's with about 2-3 hours of use a day). Small size, considering it's every song you have.....in your pocket. Various playmodes including random play. Alterable Bass/ Treble etc. Two easy ways to change volume: press up or down while a song is playing, or use the earphones volumes switch. Extremely easy interface. Don't even need Musicmatch. Screen shows song name, ablum, band name, analyzer, time played, time remaining, total time. You can browse for the next song while one is playing. Loud volume. Anyone who's used to computer speakers won't mind the headphones. Made so it doesn't accidentalLY turn on or off. Gets songs of the computer quickly (900 songs in about 15 minutes). Great amount of memory. Can record off a mic. Sturdy. No need for tech support :).

Cons: Most of the cons are based from user misunderstanding, which is odd because the system is really easy to use. I had a problem when I first put all my songs into one folder, and it would play one song then stop, but as soon as I put the songs in their respectiful folders (organized by band name), I've never had the problem again. The backlights stay on while charging, making me worry about the backlight lifespan. I havn't gotten playlists to work, but everythings already organized in folders. The headphones are slightly uncomfortable after extended use. It doesnt' actually judge the amount of space left when you check, unless you're cool and you check it through the E drive. You have to wait 6 hours before starting :(.

I use this thing all the time. 20% percent of the bad reviews are from bum units, the other 80% is just user misunderstanding. It's organized REALLY easy. install the disc, go to the folder with all your mp3s. Copy and paste them into your new drive, and seperate them. That's all. Nonething more. Errors are extremely rare, and usually only happens when batteries are low. I am in no way dissapointed with my precis El-Archo. All my mp3's work. And they're all with me. For 10 hours. And that's what counts. Uck and I've seen those huge nomads -_-.

Sorry for making such a messy unorganized review, but don't miss out on this product just because my review was lame.

4-0 out of 5 stars Archos Jukebox 6GB Recorder - so far so good
I purchased the AJBR a week ago after a significant amount of research into all the models currently available (Nomad, Jukebox 6GB, smaller memory MP3 players). Around 25% of reviewers on a number of websites appear to have had real problems with the product, with the remaining 75% more than satisifed.

A couple of summary comments:

(i) The unit is surprisingly solid and compact, although access to the battery compartments - should you need to gain access - is ridiculously fiddly. Ensure that when you purchase the unit, you initially charge the batteries for 12 hours - not the 6 hrs stated in the manual, as you could have issues with battery life.

(ii) Sound quality on the recorder (with its additional sound functions) is excellent - even with the supplied headphones. I have yet to utilise the recording function, but from research, am under the impression that the recorder has greater sound functionality that the basic 6GB model.

(iii) The process of "drag and drop" has so far worked without issue, and the creation of playlists/folders is very easy. The only downside is that tracks are listed alphabetically, which on some albums will mean tracks are played out of their normal order. This is easily recitifed however - either by amending the titles of your tracks slightly or downloading free shareware from the Yahoo Groups site (see below) which allows one to re-order tracks.

(iv) The manual supplied with the Jukebox is very basic, and I have found more use in signing up to the very well subscribed Yahoo Groups chat room concerning the Archos Jukebox.

I remain very happy with the purchase, and hope that I do not have to have recourse to significant customer support assistance. At the price offered, there is little to touch it at present. The only real reason I have not rated 5 stars is that I am waiting to see if the unit performs to a high standard long term (ie - over the 3 month warranty period) - after it has endured several recharges of batteries and many hours of play time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Archos buyers beware
The thing worked great for a year. The recording function did a great job transfering a bunch of vinyl to mp3, and the sound was good. Then the AC adaptor cord broke. Couldn't just use a Radioshack replacement, so I gave ARchos another 30 bucks for their version. Then the power started crapping out for no apparent reason. I've tried new batteries, new software and everything else, including Archos customer support, which is absolutely non-existent crap. Now the thing only runs when plugged into an AC outlet, making it rather useless. Archos buyers beware!

4-0 out of 5 stars a wonderful but sometimes fickle lover
This thing is permantly attached to my hip. I've used most of the 6GB, mostly from recording my vinyl collection. The sound is good. Rechargeable batteries and no discs make this preferable to most portable cd players.

Some issues: 1) hard drive sometimes freezes, forcing me to restart the player; 2) hard drive has crashed once (I now keep most files backed-up on computer); 3) A/C cord was poorly built and subsequently frayed, making it inoperative. I could not find an equivalent at Radioshack and thus had to give Archos another $$$for a replacement. 4) Archos customer service--if you manage to get through to them at all--[stinks].

Still, the Jukebox recorder is a great product for me. Even if I had extra cash I'm not sure I'd go w/the iPod as it doesn't record. If I hadn't blown $$$ on a replacement AC adaptor, I probably would have bought the microphone kit from archos.

1-0 out of 5 stars Look at another product
I guess some poeple have found a lot of happiness in this product, but I have had a very poor experience. I've gone through two of these. The first one began malfunctioning a few months after I got it. When I went to email Archos, they never answered. Then I tried their customer support phone number and finally got through after about 5 tries. I succesfully returned it, (which was hell in and of itself), and the Archos poeple gave me a new one in the mail a few weeks later. It came with about 7,000 fragmented files. When I managed to recover them, I was unable to delete them. I was also unable to remove any mp3s that I put on the player. I dont even try to turn it on anymore, because it takes over a minute to turn on, and if it gets hit in the slightest, it restarts or freezes. I wasted 300 dollars on this. ... Read more

I like Archos drives. They recognise the need for compactness in dimensions and lightness of weight in their designs and that makes them so easy to travel with. Their zip drive and this CD-RW are about as tiny as they can be, and the USB/Card choice makes it easy to switch from computer to computer. Love it love it love it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars SUPER RAD!
I think this device is great and this is why.
GOOD THINGS:
1. You don't have to be a computer genius to work the jukebox. I took it out of the box and was listening to music on it in less than a half hour.
2. It comes with alot of useful equipment.
3. If anybody is in a band or into recording live concerts the jukebox 10 is a great thing to have. You can hook a better mic up to the jukebox and record an entire concert in mp3 format. Than just put the recorded music back on your computer, split up the songs, and you have a live concert CD of your band! It's great!
4. Can rip records easily without special software.
5. Easy to navigate and organize.
6. I can store my memory eating movies on it too, along with any other kind of file.

BAD THINGS:
1. I dislike MusicMatch, but its not that bad.
2. It takes a little more time than a CD player to load songs.
3. No hold or safety button to prevent accidental button pushings.
That's about it! I think the jukebox 10 is really great and you get what you pay for.

5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE MY ARCHOS!
I got this ... after ditching the Nomad Jukebox for its dire battery life and buggy MP3 software. and its a dream come true! Let me tell you why.

1) DRAG AND DROP files from the Windows Explorer! It shows up as an extra Hard Drive in My Computer! No need for slow awkward transfer software!

2) USE IT TO CARRY YOUR OTHER FILES AROUND! Because of the drag and drop system store any files of your choice, such as pictures or software files, applications. I have a folder on it solely for other files, kept away from the MP3s.

3) A DRASTICALLY IMPROVED MANUAL!. Ive read the manual to the original Jukebox and yes it was bad. After sitting down and reading this new manual, it was a huge improvement, step by step flow charts and every feature explaned. The grammar and spelling still has room for improvement, but overall a huge step up. Plus the website has further hints and tips.

4)EXCELLENT SOUND QUALITY!. The supplied headphones are perfectly acceptable, but for even better sound try some of Sony's range. You get loads of enhancements such as Bass Boost, Loudness, Bass, Treble and Balance.

5)RECORD DIRECTLY TO MP3. Use the built in mic or analogue or digital inputs. You even get a free Y-cable thrown in for analogue recording via the Line-in. Nice! And the sound is great as well. you can change the quality from 1 (low) to 7 (CD sound)Plus you can change the sampling rate from 16Khz to 48Khz, and alter the recording level as record. Monitor the clear level meters to avoid clipping or distortion :-)

6)PLAYLISTS! You can create a playlist on-the-fly, or you can use the supplied Musicmatch software for playlist building. I don't like Musicmatch so I use Winamp to make my playlists and I use Freerip to rip my MP3s. RIP DIRECTLY ONTO THE ARCHOS WITH FREERIP!

7) BUILD QUALITY! The body design is silver metal with blue rubber corners for shock protection. The buttons have a nice positive click when depressed. Overall the unit feels very study and that gives me the confidence to take it out and about without fear of malfunction. You can change the batteries without a screwdriver if you are very careful, thereby preserving the Archo's sexy looks.

8)The Jukebox cannot randomly shuffle across multiple folders. WRONG!

Just make up a large playlist up to 1000 songs from any directory of your choice, hit Shuffle mode and away you go! 1000 songs is almost more than 2 days of continous music! Also you can randomly shuffle across ALL directories if you are using Windows XP and Windows Media Player! When your PC is powered up, switch the Jukebox on, plug the USB cable in, click on Play Files With Windows Media Player, click on Shuffle in Windows Media Player and away you go! (The USB cable is the only lead required).

9) Finally BATTERY LIFE! 10 hours on a full charge. Why have an MP3 player with hundreds of songs if the batterys only last 4 hours (take note Creative Labs!)

So there you have it. Im so happy with my Archos im never away from it. Wherever I go, my Archos follows.

I LOVE MY ARCHOS!

4-0 out of 5 stars This is what makes it what it is.
Ok, For all thoes people who put bad reviews about the music Quality, it is fine. This thing is a HARD DRIVE, the quality is EXACTLY THE SAME as the quality on your computer, unless you changed some options in the software to increase Transfer speed/Storage memory on the unit. If you have low quality music on your computer, you will have low quality on the mp3 player. Also, it may be the headphones. I found nothing wrong with this unit, it is cheap, and not all show like the Ipod's are. I upgraded my Archos Jukebox by puting in a new 120 gb hard drive, that you can get for $80. P.S. By opening you'r unit, you will void you'r warrenty. Do not do that unless you know what you are doing. Also, find instructions on a web site. I or Amazon can not be held responsible for what ever happens to you and/or your hard drive and Archos Jukebox.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless
I recently bought an Archos off of Amazon.com and recieved it in its alotted shipping time. I was very excited at my new purchase from good reviews and amazing specs, especially for the price! unfortunately, I took the system out of the box and charged it overnight, just as the instructions had said. I took it out the next morning, hoping to put on new music and enjoy my purchase before a n upcoming vacation, but instead, the music turned on for about 30 sec. and shut off. I tried this several times until I relaized that it would no longer turn on at all. I tried to re-read the instrutions and even check the archos website but nothing helped. Eventually, I realized that my batteries would not hold a charge (certainly not rechargable) and even for the time (30 sec.) I did listen to the music, I was disappointed by poor quality. I sent back the product to amazon.com to get a new one and try my luck again. After a prolonged period (and a vacation with no MP3 player) I contacted amazon.com to find that I would not get a new one, but only a refund. I was at first a bit upset, but then realized that after all, wouldn't a refund be better than the hastle of dealing with such a worthless machine again and disappointing myself for the second time?
I still have not found another system with the same specs and storage ability for such a price, but I figure that if I must pay an extra $50-100 for an Mp3 player that works and has better sound, then so be it. I hope we have all learned something; this archos system has sourl disappointed me and I hope you will not make the same mistake as I have.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works great...bad USB port
I've used the QDisk as a backup drive for my laptop for 9 months now. The drive works great with Windows XP, no driver issues, plug and play. The USB 2 connection is fast. The only problem I have with the drive is that the USB port in the drive broke off. I've been pretty careful with the drive, I occasionally take it back and forth from work - I didn't drop kick it or anything. The port just fell out as I was plugging it in.

1-0 out of 5 stars bad product - waste of money
First of all, I write for BYTE Magazine and WIRED News. I'm a competent computer user and well-versed in dealing with buggy products. It's what I'm paid to do, after all.

I bought the Archos Qdisk for my own backups. What a mistake! I was trying to save money -- instead, I wasted it. The product didn't come with its CD of drivers, instead it had an old floppy disk in the packaging. The floppy failed four times to install the drivers. After the 5th reboot of my computer, it finally figured out how to look for the driver. This, after I called Archos (on my buck! they have no toll free numbers) and they had me download =another= driver, which wasn't even mentioned in the installation materials. That driver crashed my computer 9 times before I finally deleted it and started over with the floppy disk.

When I finally got the driver working (the product is supposed to be plug-and-play!), I found that the disk was shipped =unformatted.= Took another half an hour formatting it. Archos wasn't surprised: apparently half or more of their disks come unformatted from the factory, but they never know which ones.

After formatting it, I tried running Dantz Retrospect for backup. After all, that's what most external hard drives are used for. Retrospect froze so badly I had to reinstall Retrospect from scratch after erasing all traces of the Archos drivers from my computer. I've now unplugged the Archos USB hard drive, and it's sitting on my desktop waiting for me to return it.

This is a piece of trash. It doesn't work even after an entire day's worth of attention is lavished on it. I had other things to do with my time than this -- like, oh, say, backing up my computer on a drive that works?

Don't waste your money on an Archos product; certainly not a Qdisk. There's a reason they're not manufacturing them anymore, I'll warrant.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent hard drive
This is an excellent hard drive. So far I have had no difficulties at all with it. It installed quickly and easily on my Win2000 Toshiba laptop. Windows recognized it and did all the work of installing the drivers. However, there are two issues i have with this product. First, there is no on/off switch, the only way to turn the hard drive off is to unplug it, otherwise it won't turn off, even if you shut down the computer. Secondly, the ac adaptor is so wide that it takes up 3 slots on my power strip, and while this doesn't affect the function of the drive it is still a pain. Overall though, i'm very happy with this drive. ... Read more

That is the most polite thing I can say about this nice looking product

1-0 out of 5 stars Sleek but immature
I have had lots of problems with this drive. The first time, the minCDRW just would not burn a CDR. After trying all that the technical support asked me to, I finally shipped it back to Archos. I was assured that there was nothing wrong with the miniCDRW and it was shipped back to me. The problems persisted. I shipped it back to Archos who then replied that the miniCDRW was defective and replaced it with another one. With the replacement, I had another set of problems. The miniCDRW would burn a CDRW disk but gave problems of calliberation area full and buffer underwrite error with CDR disks of standard brands like Imation, Maxell and Memorex. Interestingly, the miniCDRW could burn a HP CDR disk. The problems are still persisting and I have lost count of the number of CDRs of different brands that I have wasted in trying to get the miniCDRW to work. ... Read more
