Really Nice! I might get this :D
#2
seems like a great price

cheapest on Amazon.co.uk is £262.59 (from Amazon marketplace)
#3
I just bought a 605 for £200, really happy with it, although I would've got this one if I'd waited a couple of days!
#4
Which 605 and where from?
#5
40GB wifi, from Currys. Seen 30GB ones online for about £20 less, but thought I'd get one from a shop so I could take it back easier if needed. Haven't seen the 40GB sold anywhere else either for some reason.
#6
great price, reserved one!

When collecting if you buy £100 worth of gift vouchers you will get a £10 voucher. Then buy £50 worth of gift vouchers and get a £5.00 voucher.

Then use all of the vouchers (£165.00) to buy the Archos and you have bought it for only £150.00. :whistling:

Wait just thought! When you buy the Archos with your vouchers you should get another £10.00 voucher so it will only cost £140.00?

Some reviews suggest that its web browser doesnt support flash & java plug-ins. Also to use as a pvr to tv you need a £69 dock.

Sadly not:

8 This offer is not available with the purchase of Argos gift vouchers.


You should get a £10 voucher when you purchase though.

Just got an AV500 (refurb) with all bits & pieces and 3 month warranty on ebay from company called LuzernTech for £82 + £10.75 postage. :)
Same refurb units from archos site are 199 euros

[QUOTE=scanker]Sadly not:

Guess they have got wise to the voucher dealing :-( But I can not see anywhere in the description that you can not use vouchers to purchase one?
#13
This is the generation 4 player... 705 is the generation 5 player. The 704 doesn't support flash as far as I can see.

I'm sure there are other differences too... you can compare specs on http://www.archos.com
#14
what is the difference with generation 4 and gen 5 products
#15
Only able to use 1 +£10 voucher on a spend of £100!!!!:x (thats what it says on the t+c on voucher use!!!)

what is the difference with generation 4 and gen 5 products[highlight]?[/highlight]

As far as I can tell, the features of this 704 are almost the same as my 605, just a bigger screen (so the quality won't be quite as good as the resolution is the same), other than that there doesn't seem to be much difference, but I guess you'd be able to tell better if someone owned one of each.

Not a lot according to new owners of series 5 archos units!!On the new 705,you have to purchase alot of extra(!!) plugins for certain things to work:
web browser
dvd playback-cinema plugin
podcast playback

The only benefit for the new model is the ability to play flash/plugins and a slightly better screen res'!!

Very good deal if these dont bother you??

I was really keen on the 605, I have just been on the website but can't really see the difference ext the bigger screen.

When qvc sell archos players the plugings are all included so might be worth having a look at them......
#20
so tempting, I've just reserved one.
but I've been reading again about the Nokia 800, and even though it's for internet use and not a dedicated pmp (flash card storage against hdd), it looks like it could have more potential (gps, skype, applications, etc), and it will play videos with streaming.
will maybe wait now for the Nokia price to drop more, now the 810 is coming out.
#21
hmm not enough storage, i find my av500 60gb too small (but not in dimensions, its too big that way :p). archos rock, they just havent given me a reason to get a newer one yet.
#22
So where does it say that vouchers can't be used to buy this ?
#23
Does the ipod Touch support Flash and Java? As has been said the 704 does not support them.

It states in the voucher terms and conditions (number 8) that 'This offer (£10 voucher for £100 spend) is not available with the purchase of Argos gift vouchers.' Meaning that you will not get a £10 voucher if you spend £100 on gift vouchers. However the OP stated in his second post that he did this and it worked.

Guess it is worth a try if you are going to buy it anyway.

If it does or does not work can you post to let others know?

Yes - I bought £100 of vouchers in one shop, another £100 in another. Got an extra £10 voucher with each transaction giving me a total of £220 in vouchers. I used £160 of these and added £5 cash. I got another £10 voucher when buying the Archos and therefore have £70 vouchers left.

By my calculations the Archos cost me £135. :)

Thanks for clarifying iavanwilson, I have a question about the Archos in another post it states that all add ons need to be bought separately, one of the main things for me is web browsing, does it come with the Opera browser or is this an add on?

Thanks :thumbsup:
#28
good deal voted hot, im lovin my 605 160GB got everything on it! got it from QVC with lots of extras for £305 which might seem a lot but was a good deal that should cost nearer £450 at the archos website

Sorry Stormtrooper - it's a sort of Christmas present to myself so I haven't opened it ! But I think it you can browse out of the box.

The 5 series you need to buy as add ons, but I think the 4 series comes with them from the box.

I love archos and have bought and traded the 404, 604, 700. I now have the 605 and 704 (bought today from Argos). First impressions are it looks big, still easy to use, resolution is the same as the 605 so the screen doesn't look so good. The 605 did cost me a lot for the plugins but I did need the cinema plugin for the 704 to play ac3 encoded films. Archos website is easy to use to update firmware and to buy the plugins (Cinema one was 19.99 euros). As I travel by train everyday the 605 is best because of size and weight. The 704 will be used for longer trips, holidays, kids in the back of the car etc. Note the 704 you can play on the tv with a lead the 605 you need the dvr station. Hope this helps.
#32
I was going to buy one of these until archos replied via email that they will not issue any more firmware updates,..etc as they have the 705 coming !!!
Not very good customer backup!!
#33
ive got the av700tv 40gb with built in freeview, its a quality piece of kit
#34
I have been using mine for a few days now and its great, the bigger screen is great over the 604 that Ihad before, and the 40gb of storage is fine as its will hold approx 55 AVI DIVX format films....the ability to upload photots from the camera directly is wicked as well...so to be honest at £164 quid this is an absolute bargain......and I cannot fault it....and regarding the firmware updates, to be honest with you, you onoly require these if the player has any bugs or problems, which it does not....put it this way, Ive managed to resevre another 3 so Im giving them as gifts to the other gadnet lovers in my family
#35
When I go to the site, it lists it as £329.99?? Is this deal expired now?
#36
looks like they madea mistake on the price or realised no other models were selling cos of the bigger units lower price...so yes back up to £330 again this morning, which is slightly annoying for anyone that still wanted one....Homebase also had them up at £165 although out of stock, but they have now also raised their prices....

I used mine again this morning anyhoo....and it was once again briallint
#37
managed to pick one up for a friend at Amazon Market place wich isnt too bad at £200
#38
Can this record 360 captures, ie using the compoment cable) has anyone tried, cause xbox runs at 60hz. Would get one if it could record this.?
#39
back up to full price..
#40
HELP GUYS!! Do I really need a dock to make the most of the 704 its for an xmas gift and I can't find a GEN 4 dock anywhere?
