    don't they usually change the offer later in the day to give something extra?

    Not to my knowledge. In fact they sometimes give special incentives in the midnight hour like paying over 4 installments instead of 2. They want you to buy as early as possible.

    They only give other offers later if the TSV sells out and I can't see this selling, personally. I love Archos, have a 605 myself, but given the choice of the 105 for an mp3 player or the dearer ipod, I'd go for the ipod.

    "Of course one thing the 105 boasts that not many other sub-£60 players can is a colour screen and video playback"

    The range of Mp4 (or "S1 MP3" players) do, at £29.99-£34.99 for a 2GB
    The ones in Aldi and Superdrug, with the 2GB Superdrug model now reduced to £27.99 and the 1GB to £19.99 can do similar tricks.

    MP3 - check
    WMA - check
    OGG - not mentioned, but support is often included in most firmwares.
    Video - the S1 players use AMV (or other conversion formats) which are low overhead / low efficiency - The Archos goes one better here, with WMV.

    NB. WMA 64k or OGG 64k are far superior to MP3 at these low bitrates.

    Nothing would persude me to buy an Ipod or an I-anything, the only reason that apple are not "Microsoft", is that Microsoft beat them to it - everything that is bad about MS is doubly bad about apple, just that they don't really matter.
