Excerpt: Archos 405 costs $169 and is a more portable, smaller alternative to Archos 605 WiFi, the flagship model from this company. The big difference here is that the 405 doesn’t have a touch screen display, wireless download content partners and Wi-Fi connectivity. I would still recommend this device if you are looking for a good quality music and video player. Archos 405 is available in only one storage capacity of two GB and there is also an expansion slot.
Summary: ARCHOS, the brand known to be an award-winning innovator and leaders in electronic products was also the first to bring to being the Wireless and the Touch screen technology. Archos 405 2GB MP4 Player is a product of this successful brand with a heritage since 1988. This Archos MP4 Player is been described as ‘Sleek and Compact’ design. It measures less than an inch in thickness that is very sleek to slide into the pockets in a wink.
Excerpt: Like its stablemate, the Archos 405 looks good and performs its duties admirably. The screen is smaller (a still-decent 3.5in) and has a significantly lower resolution, so video playback is less of a highlight – movement is handled smoothly but the picture can be grainy.
Summary: The Archos 405 is an attractive and affordable portable media player for those on a budget. It offers good sound quality and supports high-quality video, but the screen isn't anywhere near as good as it could be.
Pros: Sound quality, Price, Build, Drag-and-drop support in Windows, Expandability, SD slot
Cons: Average screen, Many expandable elements require costly plugins, No kickstand
