Archos AV500 Review

Lordpercy.com
18 February 2006
  • Conclusion: A classic track for a PMP with a problem staying upright, perhaps that's why all the publicity shots always show someone holding the Archos AV500? We put the DVR though it's paces and see if stacks up as a sensible purchase.

  • Conclusion: Start saving your pennies: This portable media player/recorder is worth its high price.
  • Pros: A/V recording and playback quality is excellent. Compact and lightweight. LCD is bright and sharp. Easy to use. Provides plenty of control. Removable battery.
  • Cons: Video recording requires using the TV Docking Pod. No OGG or FLAC support. Can't watch slide shows with music playing.

Archos AV500 review

  • Summary: The Archos AV500 is a portable media player with a big screen, big hard-drive capacity and big battery life. Yet it’s palm-sized and lightweight, meaning you can play or record movies or music anywhere, any time, with proper results. We think it’s the bomb. How many movies in the palm of your hand? And why? Well, it has a ton of features to get even the most difficult to impress salivating like a slack-jawed Doberman.

Test: Archos AV500 (Portable Mediaplayer)

CHIP Online
18 January 2006
  • Conclusion: Aufgrund seines riesigen Speichers und der langen Laufzeit empfehlen wir den kompakten AV 500 vor allem Globetrottern, die sich den Luxus des eigenen Bordkinos gönnen. Der Preis ist zwar hoch, in Anbetracht von Ausstattung und Qualität jedoch angemessen.
  • Pros: hohe Auflösung, brillantes Display, extrem viel Speicherplatz, lange Laufzeit
  • Cons: hoher Preis

  • Excerpt: 编者按: 在法文的 generationmp3论坛有一篇由Edrysark 所进行的Archos AV500实机测试。 Edrysark的测试报告里做了许多 Archos AV500 的介绍,还有AV500和iRiver H320、Archos Gmini 402 以及 PSP 并列的照片。 Edrysark喜欢 Archos AV500“高亮度”的4寸屏幕和ID设计,也认为其录制节目的功能容易操作,还提供了一段用 AV500 的影片。 另一方面,附件里的耳机品质不佳,DivX文件的播放也有一些问题,不过,他相信 Archos日后更新固件(Firmware)将会解决这项问题。 Edrysark 最后下了个结论:这是他在接触到 Zen_Vision 前所使用过最好的�身影音播放器(PMP) 正面和顶部看Archos AV500,非常有金属质感的外壳 操作按钮 3.7V电池,播放MP4文件更持久 外包装 开机画面 主要的控制选单 播放列表,文件管理,媒体文件库 Motion Photo 动态图片 视频文件 可接驳电视 皮套...

Archos AV500. Компактный брат AV700.

  • Excerpt: Медиа-плееры. Они являются на сегодняшний день самыми прогрессивными из плееров и поэтому самыми мною любимыми. Их размеры варьируются от больших (вспомним Archos AV700) до самых маленьких (некоторые флешки уже претендуют на звание медиа, сохраняя при этом размер зажигалки). Для меня и первые, и вторые - это своего рода крайность. Первые из-за своих габаритов ощутимо теряют в компактности и, соответственно, приближаются к классу стационарных. Читать далее...

  • Excerpt: L’AV500 s’adresse à ceux qui ne peuvent pas voyager sans musique, films ou photos. Car, au-delà de sa fonction de baladeur MP3, ce produit signé Archos endosse également les rôles de lecteur vidéo, magnétoscope numérique et album photo électronique de poche. C’est d’ailleurs dans ces trois fonctions qu’il séduit le plus. Ses capacités de 30 Go et 100 Go lui permettent d'héberger respectivement 50 et 150 longs métrages.
