Great price - BUT this is discontinued in many places - its old stock

sounds good for the price

Good price but you have to ]pay extra for the plugins to make it do half of what it says in the specs

Good price for the 705. Argos clearance have had them for £124 for a while which I thought was a good price. Archos prices have come down significantly since the Android Archos models have been released. It's just a shame that the plug ins and docks are so expensive.
