Archos 704 WiFi Multimedia Player

PC Magazine
19 July 2007
  • Conclusion: This player has loads of functions and options, from video recording to Wi-Fi connectivity and file streaming. And though its capabilities can overwhelm, it's worth all of its $550 price.
  • Pros: Huge, sharp, bright TFT screen. Video and audio recording capabilities. Wi-Fi-enabled. Excellent sound quality. Highly customizable through plug-ins and onboard settings. Programmable for auto-recording TV.
  • Cons: Huge and heavy. DVR station (sold separately) is essential for recording. No built-in line-in audio jack. No FM tuner.

Review: Archos 704 WiFi

20 May 2007
  • Summary: Despite my sentimental affection for it, I think the Archos 704 WiFi is a PMP that won’t ever be embraced by the masses. According to all the press and user comments I’ve read since the unit’s release in March, it seems that unless you actually want one, you either balk at its considerable footprint...

6 March 2007
  • Excerpt: You wouldn’t want to jog with this 22-ounce slab o’ entertainment, but then again, your iPod doesn’t let you check Gmail from the couch.

  • Pros: Connects effortlessly to secure wireless networks. Touch-sensitive screen is a revelation in user interface (fingers or a stylus work seamlessly). Lightning fast digital photo transfer. Analog/digital audio outputs. DVR accessory allows for TiVo-like usage. Includes remote control and case. 802.1...

Archos 704 Wi-Fi review

18 May 2007
  • Summary: Archos’ media players seem to be going the way of the today’s professional rugby union players – the bigger, the better. With the 604 Wi-Fi’s screen measuring a mere four inches, the French company had to act – so it made the biggest and most powerful portable media player we’ve ever seen.

  • Summary: Avec 18 cm de diagonale, les films et les photos s'affichent de la plus belle manière. La qualité est au rendez vous. Tant dans l'affichage que dans les menus et l'interface que l'on aurait aimé un tout petit peu plus personnalisable.
  • Pros: Taille de l'écran, Finition, Qualité des vidéos, Autonomie, Disque dur et Wi-Fi, Connectivité station d'accueil et USB hôte
  • Cons: Pas de menus pour gaucher, Pas de range stylet, Pas de personnalisation de l'interface, Incompatibilité avec du contenu en ligne protégé
