PC Magazine

Analog/digital audio outputs. DVR accessory allows for TiVo-like usage. Includes remote control and case. 802.1...

Archos 704 Wi-Fi review

Stuff.tv
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.

TEST: Archos 704 WiFi

Dingz
27 June 2007
  • Summary: Archos 704 WiFi er ikke bare fysisk en stor spiller, med en vekt på 630 gram kjennes den også i hånda. Som bærbar videospiller fungerer den ypperlig, men som ren musikkspiller blir den i største laget.
  • Pros: Stor og trykkfølsom skjerm, god batteritid, WiFi, Nettleser fra Opera, Kan streame innhold fra nettverk, Inngang for egne hodetelefoner, God til video
  • Cons: Kræsjer av og til, litt treg, må betale ekstra for enkelte filformater, enkelte funksjoner kan ikke brukes før du kjøper ekstrautstyr, ikke lagringsplass til stylus, tar tid å venne seg til menysystemet
