Pls help me decide! archos 402 cam or creative zen vision:m?

by ninjacodermonkey / January 24, 2006 2:53 AM PST

I have been doing research on which PVP/ MP3 player to purchase, and I cant make a decision. I am hoping that some of you users out there will have some feedback on the devices which I can inturn use to make my decision. For sure... I dont want the Video IPOD. There... I said it. I am trying to decide between the Creative Zen Vision:M and the Archos GMINI 402 Camcorder. I really love both of these units, and both have gotten good reviews. The Zen Vision:M has actually gotten GREAT reviews. The archos (CON) has a smaller HDD (20GB) and a smaller screen (2.2, as opposed to the Vision:M's screen which measures 2.5). However, the archos (PRO) has the awesome camcorder/ camera feature, and has a USB Host port... which would really come in handy (I could xfer pics from my cam on the fly when I am on vacation or something, and wouldnt need to tote my laptop! Also, could add files directly from a usb drive or from my external HDD.. definite plus). However (CON) I have heard some lackluster reviews for the archos' user interface.. and there is no scroll feature (I have lots and lots of music... and it would suck if I had to click through each and every artist...)

All of this being said.. I am leaning toward the Creative Zen Vision:M... it seems to be a better all around video/mp3 player... but I just cant dismiss the archos' cool features. Anyone out there that has experience with either player that can help me "close the deal"? Thanks!!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
