"vs the I-touch"5.0 starson by quistoman
Pros: best of the best, easy to use.
Cons: software you'll want you'll have to pay for.
Summary: I had a I touch and ended up getting a refund because I don’t think I should have to “crack” software on a item I paid for to make it useful. Ive never looked back other than in pity of I-touch owners, still even “cracked” I-touch pails in comparison to this players ability and price.
One thing I would like to clear up is the battery life, I got maybe 2 hrs of use out of my I-touch max and that’s because I played video’s and/or used other apps than just the music player, the battery life was horrible so with that in mind the battery life on this is really not bad at all, if it beats out the competition in batt life, memory, functionality, and ease of use what’s left? OH yeah price and it beats I-tough hands down in the bang for your buck category.
You will have to pay for the software but at least its useful and if it means you don’t have to use i-tunes you should jump for joy as that program is one big headache of a music/video player.
It really is superior in every way but it is larger as well, not that the little bit of extra size is bad when you have the best resolution for the size in a hand held out there, but if its just too big dont worry they make a Archos 605 WiFi as well and its just as superior to other hand helds media players as the 705. I got this for the van so our kids could watch movies on the go and we can still use it for music e mail and whatever the next best thing we found that could do all that in a car costs 2000.00 yeah no joke 2000.00 and it dose do more (barely) right now but with the right software it wont so this was the obvious choice for a media player that we can take down the road.
This player will DL all your media and you wont even have to convert it if you’re not concerned about space, I never keep a ton of full length movies on it but I could, and with skype and all the different IM apps out there like I said sky’s the limit!
