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The TV+ highlights both the best Archos has to offer (an excellent DVR, quality wireless streaming) and the worst (an outdated user interface, so-so file support).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+

LAPTOP Magazine
17 March 2008
  • Summary: Although the Archos TV+ has more features, it’s not as easy to use as Apple TV, does not support true high-def, and has a confusing remote. In its current form, the Archos TV+ is a pale Apple TV imitation, even if it can record video.
  • Pros: Built-in DVR, Good streaming ability, Can sync recordings to Archos media players,
  • Cons: Low video resolution, Confusing remote, Web plug-in costs 30 extra

Archos TV+ review

Techworld
28 February 2008
  • Summary: We really can't recommend the Archos TV+, which is a shame because we really wanted it to live up to our expectations. Sadly the difficulty we had setting it up, plus the lack of high definition playback, are major issues that the Archos TV+ failed to overcome.

Archos TV+ Review

Gadgetoid
16 January 2009
  • 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. As such the following review may no longer paint an accurate picture of the Archos TV+ . Because the Archos TV+ currently has no successor that I have heard of, I will endeavor to produce an update of this review.

  • Excerpt: 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

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. Consequently, you must coax the TV+ through some ridiculously rudimentary tasks before it gets into its stride.

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

  • Summary: Чтобы произвести начальную установку и приступить к пользованию Archos TV+, потребуются некоторые усилия, но устройство работает хорошо. Преодолев перечисленные трудности, вы получите возможности, о которых поклонники Apple пока могут только мечтать.
  • Pros: Встроенный цифровой видеомагнитофон. Загрузка мультимедиа-файлов из ПК. Выход-HDMI. Браузер.
  • Cons: Нужны дополнительные программы для обеспечения совместимости с некоторыми распространенными форматами. Медленный интерфейс пользователя. Проблемы с форматом кадра.
