"There's Archos PMPs and then there's everything else"4.5 starson by neATL
Pros: Its really no need for a PC media player when you can use Windows Explorer to drag and drop files. Multiple video formats. The PRICE IS NICE. Records TV/movies, playback TV/movies.
Cons: Having to buy the recording accessories are a let down but not that big of a deal.
Summary: Im a long time supporter of the Archos brand. My 1st purchase was the Studio series in 2000. From there I went to the Studio 20, then the Av120, later came the Av480 and now the 604. I just received this device Monday (10/2/06) but Ive been reading up on it for the past 3 months. The 1st thing I noticed was the beautiful screen size and display. The ease of the GUI, the brushed medal feel, the multiple functions and the size makes this THE product to have in 2006. Archos makes great products that seem to be over looked for what ever reason, the 604 is proof. Ive read reviews and specs of other PMPs but none seem to offer what Archos has. The Cowon is nice but....NO! the video iPod is not in the same league so that puts the 604 as KING right now. It's just a shame they don't have the advertising dollars Apple puts into its products. Want to make a room full of iPod heads take notice? Walk in with the 604 in your hand.Updated
