my dd wanted one of these - great price - looks good - am i right in saying they want £17 delivery ??

got 1 from ebay in the end - ok no films on it but only paid 62


would have preferred buying from here but p p too much

do you reckon this comes with the docking station? The other ones listed say optional DVR station - this one doesn't.

Not a chance ,Would be nice if it did though,

£120 delivered with couple of plugins and around 10gb of memory with those films on it, not good

Gotta admit I was tempted ... but I'll stick with my 30gb Av500. OK, it' doesn't have WiFi but the HDD is bigger and I didn't have to pay extra for codecs / docking station / PSU's as I would if I bought the 605.

Not a bad deal though.

Downloaded or streamed? Usually I have to be on a wifi connection to use BBC iPlayer ...

Cool if can be downloaded and taken away.

Just spend an extra £70 and get an Acer netbook, can be used for many more things.

Downloaded.The quality isnt as good as streamed but is well watchable and great for putting the kids programmes on to watch in the car, Just go to iplayer and click download to portable evice,

Have one of these and I love it - great price !!

Well, yes. But that's like saying buy an estate car when the buyer is looking at a mini. The point of the PVR's is that they're pocketable (is that a word?) whereas a netbook isn't.

At the moment I can get away with watching 10 mins of South Park in the loo ... but somehow don't want to be seen walking into the lav's with a netbook!

LOL, remind me not to buy your archos if it goes on FS/FT

with the included software your looking at just over 18gb, as a portable media player for video's etc that isnt much at all. add £17 delivery and £20 for the plugins just to watch ripped dvd's or use the web, that is £120 not well spent considering in august it will be 2 generations old as well

Agreed, this is too expensive for 20GB. If it was £50 then it would be hot. If you're going to use it for TV-out functionality you may as well get a WDTV for around £75.

my little xda ignito phone (hc touch diamond) is fine and dandy for watching films or i-player stuff on

okay it only has 4gb memory but so what - i can chop and change stuf from it easy peasy

got clone wars on there at the mo

can any1 tell me how to use discount code, I tried to put the 501025HPUK code, doesn't seem to give the discount. Any hot dealer used the code yet?

does it play xvid?

does it play xvid?



They do, but they lack the screen resolution of the archos.

my 480 x 640 resolution is just fine and dandy


plus i can make phone calls on mine!

plus a 800 x 480 screen isn't a particularly good aspect ratio for widescreen stuff, so you'd probably find my xda was just as good, albeit a smaller screen.

screen size doesn't bother me though - it's still perfectly watchable.

















plus i can do texts

I bought one of these last week, although it said 20gb on the box, it has an 80gb hdd. Apparently this is not unusual ( don't blame me if you order one and it hasn't though )

you cant compare a phone to one of these :thinking:

i can and i will and i shall and i have

scrumpypaul;5676957

if that makes you feel better about your phone then cool :thumbsup:

Apples and oranges. You're not convincing anyone of anything with this comparison. I have a 605 and a Touch Diamond and as nice as the resolution is on the diamond you'd have to be crazy to sit and watch an entire movie on that size screen.

And yeah, i suppose you're gonna tell us where we can find a Touch Diamond on the shops for £80 , yes?? :thumbsup:

Great media player.The docking station is a must though to get the most out of it.
Check out ebay for cheap pluggins,i just found a four pack for £17.44.
Love mine, its great for long work breaks and holidays.
At this price i recon its a bargain.

........just biggin' up my phone guys.

anyway, it's a possible idea if someone needed a new phone but wanted something that had the ability (at a reasonable level at least - screen size permitting) to act as a half-decent media player.

as these things go it's a very decent all-rounder without the bulk or "boring-ness look at me i've got an i-phone too"

sorry for going on it's just i think my phone is oft overlooked and under rated.


i'll keep quiet now

Bargain. just ordered 3 for Xmas pressies

just recieved my 3. Thank you archos. 80gig hard drive fitted in each one

Was it the Harry Potter model? Apparently the 80GB is somewhat bigger and heavier than the 20/30GB - does yours correspond to that?

They are the harry potter models but with an 80gb hard drive. i dont know if bigger or heavier.

Great Media players with superb stunnig screen and picture quality. No arsing about with i-tunes either.. just drag and drop. The web plug- in is worth it as well. (go for the E-bay deal as smentioned above)

This is not the best price ever for a 20gb unit but still excellant if you are lucky enough to get a bigger drive or dont need the space. The best deals were when PCW/Currys sold their stock off last year and I paid £89 for the 40GB and it had an 80GB drive in it as did many others, They were selling the 80GB's for £129 then.

Far better in my opion than the Missus's ipod touch.
