Buying a new mp3 player.

Posted in Uncategorized on August 13, 2009 by dreamphase

a couple weeks ago my archos gmini 402 died. I have been using the player for almost 4 years. the player was starting to fall apart. I kept fixing it, and soldering new parts, but it finally died beyond what I can fix.

I would have bought a player right away, but the ZuneHD looked really tempting to me. also there is now this Zii EGG.  Both look really sweet, and both look really expensive. :\

which should I get? or should I just go for something cheaper. suggestions?

I might wait to see how much that new archos player costs.

home again.. home again.
