Adding Wi-Fi connect ivity and the Android operating system to a portable media player is the design concept behind the Archos Home Connect device.

Archos 5 Internet Tablet Android-based PMP

 

The Archos 5 Internet Tablet is everything the Archos 5 was, but with better performance, enhanced hardware and all the advantages Google Android brings to the party.

We were very impressed with the Archos 5 first time round and the addition of Android combined with the hardware tweaks only improves things. While it is lacking some aspects of the full Android experience, the 5 still has far more potential than most...

Archos 5 Internet Tablet

 

The Archos 5 gets a refresh with Google's Android OS, but with mixed results.

Sleek design. Huge, beautiful, high-res screen. Built-in Wi-Fi, browser. On-screen home button for one-click Main Menu access. No need for stylus. Available in large capacities.

Expensive. Touch-screen interface is not as sophisticated as those of competitors. Apps aren't well-executed. UI could stand to be streamlined—requires too many clicks at times.

Archos 5 Internet tablet with Android review: Archos 5 Internet tablet with Android

 

Archos 5 Internet tablet with Android

The Archos 5 Internet tablet/portable media player offers a large, high-resolution touch-screen display, Wi-Fi, music playback, photos, Flash video and game compatibility, Bluetooth, e-mail, a Web browser, a built-in speaker, an integrated kickstand,...

GPS signal reception is poor enough to make the feature useless; many popular Android apps are unsupported; Flash video support is hit or miss; no multitouch support for keyboard or gestures; text copy and paste is a chore; and the glossy design shows...

The Archos 5 is a great video player, but it disappoints as a premium Android Internet tablet and GPS unit.

The low resolution screen and antique Android 2.2 OS may turn some people off, but for highly functional and clock this is a great device.

Archos 5 60GB Internet Media Tablet

 

The Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet (PMP, MID, etc., etc.) is getting a lot of attention lately, and rightly so. It combines the performance, function, and content most of us are looking for in a portable media device: full Web connectivity, PC...

The cons are moderately annoying at worst. A stylus would have been a practical accessory; some Web pages are difficult to navigate on the touchscreen. (Still, you can zoom in and out by double-tapping.) The glossy metal finish is in no way a...

Archos 5 500GB Internet Tablet

 

Large memory, good picture quality, easy to use, touch responcive.

Battery life could be a bit better, can catch you out when watching a film. If you have internet on battery life is even shorter.

Archos 5 120GB Internet Media Tablet

 

Price compared to Apple iPod and capacity compared to iPod. Very nice on screen keyboard, large keys & easy to use. Beautiful High-Res screen capable of HD-unlike iPod. Opera Browser, Blisteringly fast. Flash apps easy to get hold of & play reasonably...

Have to purchase additional software packages to play certain formats of audio and video (quite expensive). Battery charging via USB, painfully slow. Can use power faster than its being charged. Couldn't get the Archos Widgets off the Opera website to...

Archos 5 120GB Internet Media Tablet

 

Brilliant, Billiant, Brilliant. Recorded movies are HD quality and and can only be played back through a HDMI port to your TV. Music can be played through your hifi. via a phono plug. Nice touch screen interface for for picking movies and movies etc....

You really need wifi at home and the DVR to get the fully benifit of this kit. It doesn't play some Flash movies on YouTube for example..... which is a reak shame.
