Disadvantages: No Screen, 2GB may not be enough space for some
For people who may travel to work or school a lot will know that listening to your favourite tracks can really help eliminate the boredom. If you have a fair bit of money then you may already have a Smart phone capable of MP3 playback or have invested a large sum of money in to an I pod touch.
But what if you are on a budget and don't have to much spare money or you just need a temporary solution before you spend a couple hundred on your own Smart phone. Whatever your case may be the Archos Clipper is suitable for both
From an aesthetic point of view it is nice piece of tech. The black looks sleek and the clip allows you to transport it on your belt or shirt. The buttons are responsive and the build quality of them is quite high as you don't hear an awfully loud "click" noise that I have experienced when I have bought other budget MP3 players
Using the device is simple enough you flick the lock button on the side on and hold down the play button for a few seconds. The main problem with these type of MP3 players is if you ever want to find a particular song then you will have to keep pressing the "next" or "previous" track buttons to find it. Then again with an MP3 player like this you are paying for the portability this device offers.
Its 2GB of space whilst its not exceptional it is manageable for those who only listen to there music on the go. I've managed to fit around 475 songs on to it. However the amount will vary depending on how much the music file may of been compressed before it was placed on to your MP3 player and of course the length of each song.
Battery life is reasonable clocking in at around 4-6 hours. And when the battery power has been expended just plug it in to a USB port with the cable provided to charge it up again
Summary: A nice MP3 player and strong competitior to Apple's Shuffle
