Archos TV+

PC Magazine
5 December 2008
  • Conclusion: The TV+ highlights both the best Archos has to offer (an excellent DVR, quality wireless streaming) and the worst (an outdated user interface, so-so file support). It's certainly an innovative device, but its limitations are frustrating.
  • Pros: Built-in DVR. Streams video and audio from PCs. Copies files to and from other devices via USB. Remote has several options. HDMI-out, several connection choices. Internet browser.
  • Cons: Needs software plug-ins for decent file support. User interface is slow, ugly. Limited offerings, poor integration from Content Portal. Occasional aspect ratio issues. No HD support yet.

Archos TV+ review

PC Advisor
29 April 2008
  • Summary: Is the Archos TV+ device from Archos the media-streaming and television recording solution we're all waiting for? As well as acting as a bridge between your computer and television, the Archos TV+ has input connections.

Archos TV+ Review

  • Excerpt: Note: This article, whilst brutally truthful at the time of launch, related to a product which is firmware upgradable and additionally tied to an online content delivery service which is potentially constantly changing.

Archos TV+ review

Stuff.tv
19 February 2008
  • Summary: Archos says its TV+ provides the most advanced features of any of today's digital video recorders. We think not. For starters, the TV+ doesn't include a TV tuner. Duh. Sure, neither does the Apple TV, but then the Mac offering isn't promoted as the world's leading DVR.

Archos TV+

PC-tidningen
3 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Archos TV+ är en liten låda som knappt märks under tv:n och den är bra på att direktuppspela material via ett nätverk. Men för det priset väntar man sig att alla funktioner ska fungera.
  • Pros: Enkel installation, Direktuppspelning
  • Cons: Saknar tv-mottagare, Dålig programguide, Webbläsare kostar extra

TEST: Archos TV+

Dingz
7 June 2008
  • Summary: Joda, Archosen gjør det den lover: Den streamer innholdet fra datamaskinen din trådløst til TV-apparatet. Selv sitter du godt planta i sofakroken med beina på bordet, fjernkontrollen i hånda og et smil om munnen. Men smilet blekner på grunn av all ventingen på at boksen skal laste inn ditt og datt.
  • Pros: pent design, bra med inn- og utganger, kan kobles til trådløsnettet, ok fjernkontroll
  • Cons: Treg maskin, må betale for filformater, må betale for nettleser (som er treg), må betale for tilleggstjenester, HDMI- og USB-kabel følger ikke med

Mittelmäßiger Festplatten-Streamer: Archos TV+

CNET
4 April 2008
  • Summary: Der Archos TV+ ist zu teuer, bringt keine standardmäßige Unterstützung für einige wichtige Codecs mit und bietet keinerlei HD-Funktionalität. Die Möglichkeit, von DVD oder digitalen Settop-Boxen aufzunehmen, könnte für Besitzer von Archos’ PMPs aber womöglich interessant sein.
  • Pros: schlichtes Design, clevere Idee
  • Cons: hoher Preis, keine HD- und schlechte Codec-Unterstützung, Plug-ins nur gegen Aufpreis
