Indispensible for Years

Michael W., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Pros: I've had it since 2010 and it just now died on me. It worked for everything I used it for (Music and Bathroom Reading). It is a rather hardy product, as I have dropped it on hard surfaces many times.
  • Cons: The file management wasn't quite as nice as the last generation. The screen scratched rather easily. It could have some (non-fatal) software quirks.

Horrible buy for me

T. K. Cameron "Lookin 4 the Goods", Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: This review is a little dated but I truly became disappointed in this product. This Arco worked great for about 30 days after that the screen kept freezing. It stop recording my shows and I just gave up on this product. A friend of mines has the 7 inch and his works fine.

Worthless Piece of Shazbot

Scott, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: It won't play Youtube because shortly after it was released, Youtube switched to a different format that the Archos company didn't plan on updating their operating system or firmware to be able to handle. Hardly any video works on it and the Apps often timeout/close for no reason.

Cannot Recommend

Kyle Strayer, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: The first few months I had my Archos i loved it, i thought it was the most useful tool i could have, but having it for a few years has made me realize that it's not quite as useful as i'd originally thought.

Happy???

Bonsai "Sammy", Amazon
21 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this product not knowing much about Archos. I had the Archos 5 for about 16 months before I had any problems with it. Most would think that's a fair amount of time for a unit like this, others would disagree. I'm the latter here.

Great For Movies

orangesmile, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: My husband travels a lot, and wanted something small to take with him to watch movies on the plane and in hotels. This is an unbelievable deal if you want to use it only for movies! It works perfectly, and it holds a TON of movies. I have read the complaints for this when using it for internet, etc.
