you can get the 120gb one at amazon for an extra £15 though. bear in mind the new android model of this is being released imminently though

I had an Archos Av500 for three years. Rock solid.

I've had an Archos 5 for 3 months and it's [expletive deleted].

Hava a gander at the forums at Archos Fans.com to see the 100's of problems with the 5 - a device that Archos of admited they will no longer support or develop firmware for. They're only shifting old stock as the new Android version of the 5 is about to be released.

I don't get the point of these mp4's. Mobile video just hasn't taken off. How often do you see someone watching tv or video on the move with an mp4 or mobile? I've seen it twice in the last two years.

Just get a good mp3 player or the Sony Ericsson W995i and use it for music

i use mine everyday on the train/breaks/lunch its brilliant for video watching. dont class these in the same league as watching something on a small low res phone screen

Now that did make me chuckle.

I watch something on my Archos everyday. I might watch a TV show at lunch or a movie over three days - I love a dedicated portable media player and the Archos 5 is a great idea badly executed. And I think Archos know that.

Why badly executed? I had a AV300, then a 420, and now got an Archos 5 a few months ago. Not really used the Archos 5 a great deal, but it looks OK, so what's wrong with it, and should I not have upgraded?

These things are great for when I fly, but I've not travelled much lately, hence why I've not used my new toy much yet.

My AV500 has probably had 30 glitches / reboots in 3 years.
My Archos 5 has 100's in the 6 weeks I've owned it. Check the forums at Archos Fans.com and you'll see I'm not alone.

Archos have now officially stopped supporting the 5; there will be no more firmware updates or fixes. What it is now is what it will stay - a great idea, badly designed. They're puting all their attention into the Android platform and it feels like those that have bought the 5 are being treated as "suckers" and left behind.

What about the 7??
I assume support has been discontinued for that too.
