The Archos AV500 gives you a variety of features. It is a video player and a video recorder. In addition to that, it is equipped to play and record audio. The package comes with an A/V docking pod, a regular sized (full size) remote control and an earphone. With its eye-catching looks, it is available in 30 GB as was as 100GB. Even though it maybe able to fit into your pocket, it will leave it a bit bulgy. This LCD item has a 4-inch wide screen and compare to the others of its kind this is amazing. You will also be able to purchase many accessories to go along with this item.

A digital camera can be connected to it so that you will be able to view your photos through it. Then of course, you can connect it directly into your computer to down load the video or audio of your choice. As for the battery life, you are in for a steal. With up to about five hours of video time, you can not loose. As for the audio battery life it can go for about 45 to 50 hours. Added to that, the battery is removable. Therefore you can purchase a spare one if you desire. The fact that it comes with only a single loudspeaker is not too impressive, but by using the earphone, it will be advantageous. However, on the down side you will have to find something to prop this machine against if you are not holding it in your hands. The Archos AV500 comes with a well-detailed manual so that you will be able to take advantage of all the wonderful functions that this portable video player offers. Even though it is a bit on the pricey side, it is worth it.
