ARCHOS multimedia portable players are versatile and can be used in many ways, whether at home, at work or on the move. They quickly become essential companions that you can't do without!The ARCHOS 404 is the perfect companion for people on the move: its 30 GB hard drive capacity allows you to store up to 130 hours of video encoded with a PC, the equivalent of 85 movies. Play them on the built-in 3.5" LCD color screen or playback on TV in high resolution up to 720 x 576 with the DVR station. Play a large variety of video files, including MPEG-4, WMV and protected WMV and read MPEG-4, MPEG-2, and VOB with optional software plug-ins. The ARCHOS 404 also offers many more functionalities such as slow motion, adjustable screen size, video editing and even a video bookmarking function.Transform your ARCHOS 404 into a Digital Video Recorder with the optional DVR station. Record TV or most video sources such as satellite/cable box, VCR, DVD player or camcorder in MPEG-4 format. Set up the DVR station by connecting it to the external video source; simply slot in your ARCHOS and record instantaneously or make scheduled recordings with the included infrared receiver that controls the external video sources.Transfer your photos from a PC or most mass storage devices via the USB 2.0 high speed interface or directly from a digital camera, on the move with the optional docking adapter, or at home with the DVR station. Store and view up to 300, 000 photos (JPEG, PNG and BMP formats) and display slideshows with music and transition effect. Manage your files and folders directly on the device for a better mobility. Store up to 15, 000 songs on the hard drive and play most popular music files such as MP3, WAV, WMA and protected WMA files.

Use the voice recorder to store notes quickly for a later use.Charge your ARCHOS 404 via the USB 2.0 interface or plug the device into the DVR station to get a quick charge. Purchase, download, subscribe to or rent protected video and music content from the Microsoft PlaysForSure websites. Using the high-speed USB 2.0 interface, the ARCHOS 404 will easily auto-synchronize this content with Windows Media Player each time you connect it to your PC, or convert your Windows Media Player library content to one of the many compatible formats.

Does anyone know if this plays DIVX movies? - would be great if it could.
#3
Yes it does play Divx movies but personally I would go for the recon AV500 as it records straight off the freeview/dvd player or whatever without having to buy a recording stand like the 404.
#4
Does the AV500 record straight off Sky+ or do you have to use its "COPY" function?
#5
Another question, do you have to have the docking station to be able transfer videos from PC to Archos 404?
#6
The AV500 has a far superior screen to the 404.
#7
Buy an Archos AV605 wifi. A little more money for a lot more. Movies on demand, watch youtube, pick up your email etc.

Nope. I picked one of these up from Dixons Duty Free at Gatwick and it comes with a USB cable to take care of the charging and transferring duties.

I love mine. Not sure I need one, but I love it anyway!

P.S. The pictures up the top show the one with a camera ... not sure the offer one has the camera.

No idea to be honest .. I got rid of Sky when it went digital many years ago .. got fed up with the price going up every year.

I download every tv series I want to watch and play them either on my Av500 or through it onto the tv.

I got rushed into hospital last year and had to stay for nearly 5 weeks .. that player was a godsend.
#10
Know any good deals around for the AV500 then or the AV605 wi-fi version?
#11
not sure I can't take the gamble on a refurb model - but for an extra £90 you could get a refurb AV700. Nothing wrong with this model is there?
#12
If I remember correctly the screen on the AV700 was a bit iffy, especially compared to the 500.
Its also a bit on the large side to be called truly portable.
#13
Wouldn't buying from Archos.com be liable for VAT as its from abroad? I thought they were a French company.
#14
You'll just pay French VAT instead
#15
I have the Archos 404 Camcorder - brilliant! One important fact though ... my battery died completely a few days ago. Archos say that there is no way to replace battery without sending the 404 to them, but I bought a slightly larger battery from EBay. It fitted after I removed the small strap near the camera (inside). Since it is a longer battery and has bigger storage, it now works great. If this happens to you, just remove the two screws on the side near the buttons, then the back lifts off. The battery is easy to take out.

I hate this site!!

I dont need this but now I want it!! - I could record all those re-runs of star trek off sky. - like the sound of the 500 one better...but like any techno things, is it worth me waiting a few months?

Is the 404 Camcorder a different product to that being advertised as the deal here?

I don't know I am confused now as to get this or spend a little bit more for a refurb 500 (or the 500 offer that they have on archos.com).

What I meant earlier about being a French company is that am I liable for import duty if Royal Mail impound the package because it has originated outside the UK?
#18
is this one touch screen or only the 604 / 604 etc? after a touch screen one for the car :)

Trouble is you could always be waiting a "few months" as technology is always getting better.

I bought my AV560 nearly 2 years ago from Currys for over £300 and I would still pay that for it now.

You can add a camera to the AV500 as well .. not sure how much they are though.

The playback through the tv is excellent as well.

Yes, this is one without the camcorder built-in.

No duty, as it was bought in europe where you just pay the local equiv of VAT when you buy it.
#21
my mate tried to order the archos and says he could not as the 404 is not available to buy online it was only available to reserve & collect from store and thus the 10% discount could not be applied

is this right ??
#22
Yes...because its out of stock online :thumbsup:
