The Archos 604 features a decent base price and a vast array of accessory options. The screen provides a sharp display and is excellent for viewing photos. The screen size, now 4.3 inches (was 4.0), makes it slightly bigger than the average pocket but everyone deems the larger screen worth it. The unit can record both audio and video but accessories are needed. It features a removable battery, built-in speaker and kickstand. The Archos 604 also allows one to listen to music while viewing photos or slides…

The Archos 604 features a decent base price and a vast array of accessory options. The screen provides a sharp display and is excellent for viewing photos. The screen size, now 4.3 inches (was 4.0), makes it slightly bigger than the average pocket but everyone deems the larger screen worth it. The unit can record both audio and video but accessories are needed. It features a removable battery, built-in speaker and kickstand. The Archos 604 also allows one to listen to music while viewing photos or slides. Reviewers call the unit durable and exceptionally compact for its screen viewing size.

The Archos 604 is limited to the 30GB option. In addition, you must purchase a host of optional items to utilize all the features. Separate kits exist for recording audio/video and a power adapter. Also, plug-ins have to be downloaded for certain file types of video files and the unit features a proprietary USB cable. Therefore, to get the full feel of what this unit will cost you, you have to think carefully about the extras you will want to purchase with the player. In addition, sound quality is not considered as strong as prior models. The unit does hold up to 15,000 songs on its hard drive and songs can be easily organized with the ARCLibrary allowing the user to create a playlist without a computer. With the new brushed metal and the much needed kickstand, the unit is very stylish. The ability to play back AVI, MPEG-4, WMA, WMV, MP3, and WAV make it extremely impressive. Movies ftom your computer, or from the optional DVR accessory or from your camcorder are all viable options for this video player. All in all, the Archos 604 is a good, portable media player that features above average viewing at a decent base price.
