Summary: Be aware before buying this product that Archos has terrible technical support and customer service. While I originally really liked my Archos because of its big screen, it has proved to be a lemon, offering repeated problems in terms of battery life and the screen.
Summary: I got the 704 in August and while I really only wanted it to view my photos I found that it was a locked system, even though it runs on Linux. You can't add any programs or other software to it. It is suppose to have Adobe Acorbat on it but I can't get it to open.
Summary: Let me start out buy saying that I have always been a huge Archos fan. This is my third one and it is GARBAGE. It arrived borken (from Archos). Instead of taking the broken unitback and sending me a new one, they insisted on trying to fix it. It came back still not working.
