Default Just ordered an A3

After a long struggle I decided it was really what I wanted. I own an A2 and despite the age still consider it one of my top players, Now I dabbled with the Ipod Touch, the Archos 605, the zune and a few others, but after all that I decided what I really wanted was an A2 with a better screen. The A3 fits all of that, I figured before HD players are gone completely (which I figure will be next year) I better get one. My A2 has served me well and will contine to But I needed a higher rez screen, the 605 is very grainy, the Archos 5 I had for a few minutes, the screen was gorgeous, but it was far too shaky FW wise to keep. I'm going to search no longer the A3 will be my PMP I hope for quite a few years.

My initial review of the A3 after playing with it for a day.

This is the PMP I've been searching for. I'm a screen Whore and I absolutely Hate weak black levels. Not a problem on the A3, this is the best screen I've seen on a PMP Bar none, black levels are inky black and solid, colors are vibrant and jump off the screen, detail is great.

Musically the A3 also sounds fantastic comparable to the D2 I Have owned and much better than Ipod and Zune.

I haven't listened to either, but I believe that the zune premium buds blow the "malo" buds away

Yeah they are pretty accurate, not an overdriving bass like the SB's
