My dream gadget!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Archos 704 WiFi 80GB Multimedia Player (Electronics)
Buy it now! I have had mine a few weeks now and absolutely love it! I would have given it 5 stars if the archos support staff ( thats a laugh!) would answer my emails about the recording from the tv feature using the timer. There is a premium rate support telephone number which I am sure they answer but at premium rate I will not be phoning them! As I didnt really buy it to record from the tv I am not really bothered, but would like to be able to do it, the instructions for the archos are great, but you just get a few pages for the dvr station which is very annoying! I am transferring all our music onto my archos, and have filled a box with the Cd's I have put onto it. I have also put films, camcorder videos, and umpteen photos and I still have lots of room left. The touch screen is fantastic, it looks brilliant, screen is great size for viewing too.The wifi works great, and browsing the internet is easy, but dont expect it to be as fast as your laptop or computer, but for browsing in the garden its fantastic!and if your going on holiday its brilliant for keeping in touch with your web based emails.The built in speakers are adequate, but the sound is even better and louder with the headphones. You will need the dvr station to get the best from it, hooked up to our tv and sound system its brilliant, you can play your favourite music while watching your photos on the tv big screen. I handed it round at a family gathering and everyone wants one now!
