Archos 605 WiFi 30GB

 

If you want a widescreen video player Apple is the only fruit, right? Wrong. Archos shows its class with the 605.

The fact that you get 30GB of storage, a touch-sensitive 800 x 480 4.3in widescreen and Wi-Fi in a product costing less than £200 is amazing. Add in its wireless streaming, TV recording ability, good looks and ease of use and you've got a product...

Archos Archos 605 WiFi review

 

A long haul flight with this would be a joy

Capacious storage ; top-drawer video ; bags of features

Quite large ; still not very pretty

The PC peripheral finally hits the mainstream with this easy-to-use touchscreen device offering loads of extras

From playing, to recording, to streaming, to surfing, the Archos 605 WiFi does a bunch of stuff. But, does it do its ‘bunch of stuff' well?

The tasty 605 Wi-Fi could be the best Archos yet, and delicious video replay makes it a genuine rival to team iPod

Archos605 Wi-Fi

 

Preview: Archos' latest pocket video trouper brings support for flash video, an improved UI and a glorious new screen. But does it have the skills to get mainstream love?

Improved screen. New range of capacities. Now supports flash video. Built-in EPG.

Dock is still an optional extra. Wi-Fi set up was tricky on previous model.

Archos 605 WiFi portable media player

 

Sleek, light and beautifully designed, this successor to the Archos 604 WiFi ups the ante in several ways. The screen resolution and battery life have both been boosted and there's more storage on offer - the 605 range goes all the way up to a mighty...

The Archos is attractive, good value for money and well-designed, with an intuitive layout and high-quality screen. Charging is a hassle, however.

Archos 605 WiFi 30GB

 

Archos 605 WiFi 30GB is a portable video player perfect for watching movies anywhere. This PVP has an 800 x 480 resolution in a 116.84 mm top-notch touch screen. This device is WiFi ready that allows you to wirelessly download and store your favourite...

Like that gorgeous but slightly deranged French girl you met on holiday in Thailand, the 605 is tempting, infuriating and sporadically expensive. You might not be together for life but you’ll never forget how good she looks. Archos 605 WiFi 30GB is...

Archos 605 WiFi

 

Archos 605 Wifi is a personal video player (PVP) that can store from 30 GB to 160 GB, depending on model. Superb video resolution, excellent viewing angles and a 'kickstand' that can be folded out make this a great little video player. Oh, and it...

Archos 605 30GB

 

A bright and breezy OS hosts features galore

Enjoyable OS and streaming video

Stuttering web browser

Choosing the 605 is like buying into a concept rather than simply buying yet another gadget. And if you thought the Touch or the iPhone were addictive, the 605 will keep you busy 24/7. Time to dump your friends
