Internet: Flash 10 support does not exist so sites like Hulu will not work for movie streaming.

Who knows but I am certain that one day Archos will GET THE MESSAGE that they need to replace their quality assurance and customer service departments.

I have not been more excited to receive a digital toy for many years, and after reading up on the capabilities of the Archos 7 according to Archos, I was eagerly anticipating its arrival. However, after playing with the device for a few days I must say that I am terribly disappointed. Perhaps, given that I have been in the tech industry for over 30 years, I have high standards, but I must say, in that 30 years no device has ever come to me so premature as the new Archos PMP.

I can understand in today's economic environment that companies are cash-strapped, and the desire to have items on the market for the Christmas season. However, Archos has lost me as a customer - this device is in no way ready to have been released from their development cycle.

Flash support. Some youtube videos work, though newer formats do not. That said, youtube was the only website from which I was able to view videos. Hulu, Joost, network websites - none of their videos would work. Technical support tells me that its a combination of Adobe flash and the Opera web browser that prevents these videos from working. Since I purchased the device primarily for this purpose, it scores a 0 here.

Connectivity. Abysmal. I can detect my wireless network, go to a website and click on another link, and the device can no longer find a wireless network. So, back completely out, reconnect, go to the website. Sometimes wireless connection stays up, but most often the behavior is as above. Another 0.

Email - crashed the device every time, I never got it to work with any mail server. 0.

Transfer of movies. Why on earth don't companies that develop hardware devices also bundle software to transfer DVDs to their device?

I have bought one Archos 605 wifi and two Archos 7's with the DVR Station and they all were sent back. As much as I wanted these media players to work they were just a big let down. I have three other Insignia players that have worked fine for many years. I even bought a new laptop hoping the Archos 7 would sync to the Vista Home Premium Windows media player. The DVR station using the Archos 7 would not sync to my local channel guide. After hours with tech support, which by the way is at least a 30 minute wait on the phone, I was totally unable to get the things working correctly. To add insult to injury, I had purchased the Cinema plug-in for 19.95, which you must have to view most video, and even though I sent the Archos back and showed proof with a confirmation e-mail from, they would not refund the purchase of the plug-in to my credit card! They would be great devices if they did half of what they say they will! I highly advise Amazon to drop Archos from their list of media players. Can I give this product no stars?!

I have the Archos 7 320 gig. The huge hard disk means I no longer have to worry if all my stuff will fit. I've never yet - it's only a month - had any problem at all with it - web surfing great, unbox works perfectly. They all work just fine. Picture is quite good and the sound level is high enough so you don't need earphones. I've even figured out a way to convert Itunes video. The wifi is neat - the other day it asked me if I wanted to upgrade my firmware - I said yes - and it did so with no connection to anything. Apparently, the battery is removable, but since I haven't seen anything from Archos about this, I haven't tried. It lasts for at least 3 movies, but it takes a while to charge it fully. The touchscreen lets you associate a click with each tap, is easy to use, simple to understand, and really works. Drawbacks - it does take fingerprints easily, but not badly enough so that it's more than a minor matter. Actually, the touchscreen really doesn't get at all smeared - unless of course you've been eating fried chicken with your hands (the only way to do it.) It's larger and heavier than any music/video player/recorder of which I know, but it fits into the inside pockets of a sports jacket, and the stand means that you don't have to hold it. It's not really portable like an Ipod or a 605, but it's not really made for that kind of portability. All-in-all a 9.5/10. Anyone who's seen it has lusted for it.
Update 3/4/09: finally they are selling saddles for the dvr stations. Before, if you bought a second station, you got no saddle. Only one comes with the Archos 7 itself and none come with the stations. Using a station without a saddle is highly discouraged as it may damage the IMT. The same problem was true of the 605 - you had to call Archos and beg them to send you a saddle. With the 7, I called and they very nicely said they would send me one, but never did. Now you can get one for 5 bucks.

Ok, here's the 10 reasons NOT to buy one of these Archos devices.
I bought an Archos 605 then a 705 in Utrecht Holland while on vacation with the girlfriend.
The problems begin.

1. I paid too much for it. 270 Euros or $367 USD. Shop around, you'll save money PLUS they're available used elsewhere or for lower prices.
2. I tried to connect it to my PC AND Macbook but the Archos locked up. Had to do a hard reset to make it respond. THEN, it took 5 minutes to restart.
3. I tried to go to for support but couldn't register the product for support because someone had already registered the product serial number, couldn't get support.
4. Fine, I'll try to download the latest firmware operating system that will probably fix it. It did nothing and the anti-intuitive (I made that word up just for this review) options in the restore process is confusing at a time when you need clarity.
5. Tried to connect it to the internet and run its version of "live update". That will fix it. I downloaded a medium-sized file which appeared to update it yet the problems got worse.
6. Now, whenever I disconnect the device from a USB port even when just charging it, it locks up and I have to do a hard reset AND plug it in to start the thing.
7. Almost always, I can't just turn it on. I have to turn it on and hope it boots. After 5 full minutes of trying to boot itself (it locks up with the disk drive activity light illuminated) it fails and shuts itself off. I must plug it into external power to try to boot and hope it works.
8. Transferring files into the thing, despite USB2's 480 Mbps speed takes forever. Not sure why.
9. Movies ripped to the Archos format _might_ play or they might jitter every single second making you regret your purchase further.
