Daily gear deal – 2GB Archos MP3/video player for $26

Regular readers will remember that I posted a deal on this product l a couple of weeks ago, but since it just dropped to an absurdly low $26, I felt I really had to share it with you again.

The Archos 105 2GB media player features a 1.8″ OLED screen and is just 7mm thin. The device supports music from most popular formats, and video in the WMV format. The device even features a photo viewer, capable of viewing JPEG images.

The battery is capable of powering the device for about 18 hours.
Reviews of the player are generally positive, but they do point out that video quality is quite poor, which makes sense with such a small screen.

At just $26.29 it’s a real bargain, and if you need a couple of players to keep your kids (or significant other) quiet during your trip, it probably won’t disappoint you.

You’ll find the deal at Amazon, and since it is over $25, you’ll even get it shipped for free! The player comes with a quick start guide, headphones and a USB cable.
