I bought one of these in January from newmp3technology, aka laptops4u. It worked great for 5 months, excellent piece of kit. Then the AV socket stopped working. Forum posts now point to the one sold by newmp3technology isn't a genuine part - no Archos branding and no white lettering on the ports. Laptops4u have disappeared off the Amazon site, newmp3technology doesn't reply, Archos haven't replied and Amazon won't even help try to contact the sellers for me - they couldn't care less about their Marketplace vendors! Now all I have is a useless lump of black plastic!

The moral of the story is, before buying one of these, find out if it's a genuine part, with the white lettering and embossed "archos" as shown in the pics.

I've had this Mini Dock for my Archos 5 for about 4 months. My first impressions of it were that it's very small and lightweight which is good because it's already been away on a couple of holidays with me and doesn't take up too much space in my handluggage. It's been very useful as it charges the archos 5 within 2 or 3 hours which is a lot faster than it takes when I just plug the archos into my PC. Also as i've been using the archos abroad I haven't had a PC with me to plug it into so really needed the dock. With the dock you can easily attach to any TV with composite cables so I can easily bring a large collection of films with me to play on bigger screens at my friends houses or even just on my TV downstairs which is too far away to connect directly to my PC.

The disappointing features are that it seems to be made out of really thin tacky plastic that feels like it could break easily. Some of the connections are very close together so it's hard to have say a usb device plugged in at the same time as the composite cables. And when you plug it into the archos it's not big or heavy enough to support the acrhos' weight so it's not easy to stand the archos up at a viewing angle to watch video whilst charging.

It's quite easy to look past those downsides though because this dock is so useful and should really come inclusive with the archos.

If you own an Archos 7, you need this. It allows you to connect the big Archos to your television, either by Composite video or S video, and will also let you connect a USB stick, so you can read the contents on the Archos. If used with the Archos 5, it will allow you to charge the device off the mains supply rather than your computer, something that is not necessary with the Archos 7. If you own an Archos, this is essential.

I needed a way to transfer my downloaded films on to the tv/projector. Having looked at the price of the docking station I decided to buy the snap ons as the 2 together ( one to copy from TV to Archos and this one, Archos to TV)came to less than the docking station.
It works very well and allows you to send your images to the TV via either S video or componanant,It also allows the content from a flash drive to be thrown to the TV. its a shame that the usb conector does not allow an external mouse or keyboard to control the archos. Still not a major problem.

Really good piece of Kit

Bought this to take to our holiday home abroad so we can watch UK TV and videos which I download onto my Archos. Easy to set up and use. Only one criticism. Why did they design it with a curved base rather than a flat one which would stand up on its own? Weird!

Whilst this provides you with all the extra connection options I still cannot believe that the bottom is not flat. This means that the Archos does not stand up. So I am thinking what is the point of this peice of plastic? In my mind waste of money.

I thought I was ordering a genuine Archos product. This unit is so light that it doesn't support the Archos 5's weight, and I've yet to appreciate what this product could be used for - I charge and play Archos 5 without the need to use this dock.

I bought this for my Archos so I could give it a fast charge and have video out. It arrived faulty so I returned it and bought the larger and better docking station instead.
