Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a fantastic gadget, 15 Oct. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Archos 605 WiFi 4GB Portable Media Player 4.3" Touch Screen (Electronics)
I had one of these a few years back but it died on me so when I saw this at such a bargain price I couldn't resist.

This remains one of the best-ever gadgets in my opinion. Video quality (and video recording quality, assuming you have the dvr dock) are superior and streaming music and videos from my home pc is superb.

A couple of things to bear in mind though:

1. The plug-ins that you need for web browsing and playback of some video files are no longer available from Archos but you may find them elsewhere.

2. Some recordings you make from the tv (mainly on-demand stuff) are protected and will only play back on the device itself. Not a problem if you want to watch them on the train but you won't be able to watch them on your tv or pc.

I use this mainly as a video recorder for tv - you can schedule recordings and it works really well. Plus, it's highly portable of course, for music etc when out and about.
