Archos 105

PC Magazine
27 April 2008
  • Conclusion: The Archos 105 can be forgiven for most of its shortcomings because of its incredibly low price for the storage capacity you get—but there are better budget digital music players on the market.
  • Pros: Affordable. Compact design. Excellent EQ.
  • Cons: Frustrating interface. Limited file support. So-so battery life. Display is prone to burn-in. Audible hum behind music played at low levels.

  • Summary: What's not to like about the Archos 105 - a light, compact, 2GB media player with a colour OLED screen? Try this: kludgy software, mediocre audio quality, and ability to play only one video format.

CNET

  • Summary: A distinctly affordable player but very average performance and feature set reflects this. If you're eager to have video alongside your music and are on a tight budget, you'll probably be happy.

  • Conclusion: Technical Department Archos 105 has one of poorest video playback feature due to its low resolution screen. As a comparison, iPod Nano has twice of the same resolution.

Archos 105 review

  • Summary: Archos has built its fearsome reputation on making portable video players that are bigger, better and more feature-packed than its rivals. So in many ways the new 105, a mini media player with a 1.8in screen, is two parts puzzling, one part reckless.

Test: Archos 105, 2 GByte (MP3-Player)

  • Conclusion: Wenn Sie einen robusten Musik-Player mit einfacher Bedienung und guter Akkulaufzeit suchen, sollten Sie sich den Archos 105 genauer anschauen. Bilder und Videos zeigt er zwar auch an, wegen des kleinen Displays sind diese Funktionen aber eher ein netter Gag als wirklich sinnvoll nutzbar.
  • Pros: Gutes Display, Solide Verarbeitung
  • Cons: Kleines Display, Kein Radio

  • Summary: Весьма вероятно, что именно эта модель прождала своего часа «на полке» примерно год, уж больно несоответствующий дисплей в нее поставили. Зато с объемами памяти в Archos решили не «заморачиваться» и выпустили один, самый ходовой вариант на 2 Гбайт.

  • Conclusion: Ce baladeur multimédia de poche est muni d’un écran de bonne taille pour un appareil de ce format, le rendu des photos et des vidéos, comme les formats vidéos pris en charge restent assez limités.
  • Pros: Format compact, bonne qualité sonore, autonomie, prix.
  • Cons: Malgré sa taille, l’écran offre un rendu décevant des vidéos, un seul format vidéo accepté, absence de tuner FM, chargeur secteur n’est disponible qu’en option.
