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.
Summary: I bought this from QVC, complete with docking station. To look at the presentation on TV this looked simple to use. I like to think I am technically minded but this is a pain to use. I had to buy a plug in just to get it to play video too. How annoying is that?
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Summary: Pues un amigo mio se compro este reproductor y una pasada el otro dia me lo presto y quede impresionado yo que pensaba que los mejores reproductores multimedia eran los i-pod, pues no estaba confundido, con este reproductor que combina la gran pantalla de 7 pulgadas y la multitud de archivos que...
