  • Summary: Im not sure how to use all of the features but the dock station works well. I record so many television shows wish I had the 160 gig

half cooked, half baked

Lologuy "cracked PDA", Amazon

  • Summary: Picked up this discontinued model for under $100. Great looking, solid build quality, feature -laden but only some of it works really well. They highlight this as a Wi-Fi media player, only thing is the Wi-Fi is pretty worthless. Pickup of available wi-fi is weak but the most lamentable thing is the supplied browser, Opera, which is slower than a snail, and hangs up or won't load some pages at all.

Archos 704 pretty picture but . . .

IsaacRobot, Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: Pretty picture and a smooth Video Player but .. it's still a brick (weight) of a Portable Media Player. Archos 704 color screen is absolutely gorgeous, vivid color in all angle of views. Its touch-screen technology is flawless for a handheld with 7" color screen. Interface takes some practice but as is with anything else- different. The truly shining feature has to be getting-the-DVD-into-the Archos 704.

Customer Service IS NOT Archos

gopherindian, Amazon
9 November 2007
  • Summary: When you call Archos 'Customer Service', you are getting a contracted call center. Their reps tend to answer calls for a variety of 'clients'. They also take calls for iPOD and MS Zune. The reps are given binders with VERY LIMITED information on any given product. That's why it's easier for them to just have you send the product back to them since they really don't have any staff 'experts'.

Great video player and photo viewer, bad everything else

  • Summary: This is a video player. Remember that and you'll be happy with the purchase. For anything else, buy an iPod.
  • Pros: Best screen in a portable device ever seen.
  • Cons: Nonstandard cable, horrible battery life, bad interface, buggy software, volume way too low.

Good device overal, mediocre WiFi performance

H. Dinh "shooter", Amazon
1 August 2007
  • Summary: I have to rate this device just about slightly above average. It supports only 16 millions color, so some of your higher color pictures might not display correctly. Large files (>4MB) take a couple seconds to load. Photo viewer software is similar to the iPod's, all of your pictures are shown on screen and you have to scroll around to find the one you are looking for.

704 WiFi 80GB

Reviewer, CompareStorePrices
17 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Bought this unit from elsewhere and loved it. Its brilliant. The screen is a size that you can actually see what you are reading/viewing. The HD is huge @80Gb and a massive amount of both data and video can be stored. Its a fantastic piece of technology. Yes its double (plus) the price of the AV500 (which I thought was a waste of time) but well worth the extra. Dont forget...

  • Summary: Mein Gerät: ARCHOS 704 WiFi 80GB mit optionaler DVR Station IN KÜRZE: Um es kurz zu machen: Der ARCHOS 704 ist bei weitem noch nicht ausgereift und man sollte mindestens noch ein paar Firmwareupdates verstreichen lassen, um den Kauf in Erwägung zu ziehen. IN LÄNGE: Das Gerät kann vieles was versprochen wird, einiges davon aber auch nicht. Zudem gesellt sich einer der schlechtesten Supports den ich je kennengelernt habe.
