Archos 705 7" Touchscreen Wifi 160GB Multi Media Centre & Docking Station £339.96 + £6.45 delivery @ QVC. Pay over 4 months at no extra cost. Also 5% Quidco. Note that this deal includes the docking station, which usually costs extra. I know that you can get a similar price on the 705 alone elsewhere, but if you need the docking station as well then this looks like a very good deal to me. Price valid for today only. And yes, I know QVC are a "shopping channel", but I've used them a lot myself and found them to be excellent (even their customer service number is Freephone).

Watch films, view photos, surf the net (dependent on network coverage) and listen to music on the go with the hand-held Archos 705 multimedia player. Its 7" LCD widescreen (800 x 480 pixels) displays crisp images and the touchscreen makes it simple to use. It stores up to 200 films, 95,000 songs or 1.6million photos! Plus, there's no need to worry about the battery life; it gives you up to 25 hours of music playback and 5.5 hours of video playback on the built-in LCD screen. Comes with a DVR docking station to record TV and charge the Archos.

...you know you want to! lol I'm tempted too, but as QVC always say "its a considered purchase".

It also comes with the web browser plugin worth £20!

Good price with the DVR and web plugin also maximum easy pay available, but beware it is quite big and not as portable as the rest of the Archos range.
Heat added!!

I've got the 704 wifi from last year when Argos were selling them off at half price and bought the docking station separately.

Other than a larger hard drive is this any different to that model?

Why the cold votes? I have done a quick search - i did find it a little cheaper but you have to buy the docking station separately. So this is good value. Heat added.

Thanks mate. I guess some people vote cold just because they get some thrill out of it. Who knows. Most HUKDers are fortunately like you an me, and vote sensibly. I wouldn't be suprised if the cold voters rarely post any good deals themselves (and they are free to prove me wrong!). :thumbsup:

Amazon looked the next best deal, but cost quite a bit more if you also buy the docking unit (plus no Quidco with Amazon).

rip off price.


records but has no DVB-T or DVB-S!

If you know of a better deal for something similar then please post it. Don't just say "rip off price" unless you can justify it. How does that help anyone reading this thread?

good price, voted hot, archos items are always good

Great price , great deal, voted hot.

QVC is the best, best customer service! I broke my 605 4 times and got a new one and didnt have to pay for the delivery charges!

I've experienced a similarly high level of customer service from them. They usually don't even ask how something got broken...they just replace it (or refund - your choice) at their expense. Superb. Pity more people don't give them a try. Perhap[s commenst like these will encourage them? :thumbsup:

Voted hot and agree with all the positive comments about QVC....:thumbsup:

I am sorely tempted to get this and sell my 605 (which I love) just because this one is shinier, newer and bigger....yes I am that shallow..:oops:

Hope its not sold out though as I have just tried buying online and its not working...god forbid I would have to actually talk to someone to order it..:w00t:

I have the 605 and 705 (and 405:whistling:) and tbh the 605 is the better machine, as long as you've got one of the bigger hard drive models. The screen on the 605 is smaller but it's a lot sharper which makes it just as watchable. By all means get the 705 but I think you'll end up keeping both!

Hmmm still undecided, I like the idea of the larger screen for web browsing and using it in-car, but am a bit of a fusspot when it comes to picture quality...and like you said the 605 is nice and sharp..decisions decisions...:?

Think I will just go for it, thats what the 30 day money back guarantee is for after all...:thumbsup:

Thanks for the info, rep added..:)

Only joking mate. I'm tempted too, but the Mrs would probably be less than pleased. :?Hope its not sold out though as I have just tried buying online and its not working...god forbid I would have to actually talk to someone to order it..:w00t:



They are friendly Liverpudlians though. And they pay for the call too.
