What do you think of the new Archos 605 Wi-Fi Portable Multimedia Player?

Xmas is coming soon, so I was looking to buy myself something nice for that time of the year... 8-)

I was looking for a portable Wi-fi media player that looks nice, plays ALL the media files, is good for web browsing on the go, and doesn't cost too much!

After some research, I found the perfect candidate: the new Archos 605 Wi-Fi Portable Multimedia Player! :thumbsup:
I went to a local store to test this player.
Result: once you've played with this player, you'll quickly forget iPhone, iPod Video & Co. This player is great for watching all your videos & surfing the web (and much more), and costs less than 200 pounds! I will order one for myself very soon.

Well, if you're also looking for a nice Xmas present either for yourself or your partner/family/friend, why not check the links below to learn more about this player:

I cant comment on this particular one, but do have an Archos 500 which has a 60GB hard drive. It doesnt get used that much - but is used - and when it is, its a godsend. It doesnt have the bells and whistles of this one, but......

Its an absolutely fantastic piece of kit - just like the 605.

I wouldn't hesitate now I know how good they are.

Got the 704 off ebay imported from the states, earlier this year, think its out over here now though and its awesome i took it on holiday with me in april and it was the mutts nuts!

looks nice shame i cant afford it yet

nice bit of kit, u shud market it for them lol

Should be a good device, I have an Archos 504 160GB (the fat one) and although I don't use it all the time, it's handy when I do need it. When I went on holiday recently without a PC, I took the Archos which allowed me to backup the pictures from the camera (rather than taken loads of memory cards), listen to music, watch recorded TV shows as well as DVDs ripped to the Archos.

Have you looked at the Archos 604?

You need to add the advanced dock but it works fairly well, you hook up your AV connections to the dock as you need then simply dock the Archos to record or play back through your TV. Then when you need the Archos on the move you just take it out of the dock and you can watch what you've recorded.

Just back from the states and the 605 30GB is out. Looks and plays nice. $279.

Almost bought it. But as I just bought a camera lens and iphone I thought I had better not !

Maybe wait until the 160GB version comes out...
