The sales guy must really be mesmerised by you. The stand up case is $70/-, $60/- is for the one that can't be used as a stand.

For info:- The optional stand up case fits the AV420 only. AV480 and above models will not fit into this case, reason is the AV480 is thicker than the AV420 because of the 2.5" hard disk used as compared to the 1.8" hard disk of the 420.

Kegler - how's the reception of the optional FM radio?

Yo Guys and Gals,
I just bought an Eagle Creek padded Quarter Cube.


It fits the Archos AV420 + Stand up travel case, with room to spare for the AC adapter.


Bought t at Sports Connection, Beach Rd.

Teerex, good for travelling ;) $9.10 only :D

Ya, looks like those guys are quoting you prices by first looking at your face. Like your face, give you a slightly lower price :bsmilie: . No offence kegler, you're in that line.

Tks for info on the fm reception, I've been using quite a few mp3 players with fm and most of them are not good for radio.

Ark19 - the quarter cube looks good. Put the charger and the 420 into it and dump it into a haversack for travelling seem ideal. The padding will take the shock off the 420. I'll be going down to Sports Connection Funan to get it today.

erm... i doubt anything to do with face... probably i in sales line too.... remember i told u they quoted me $85.... when i return ...still the same... after some talk kok here n there... he lanlan go check his comp then realise he remembered wrongly... hmm... which makes me ponder if its real or not....lol

anyway... i manage to play movies on TV... but somehow i couldn't record from tv :embrass: .... keep telling me no signal... is there some kind of settings i need to configure? manual kinda useless... not really telling me much.... Zzz :sweat:
