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 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.

First off keep in mind that I have the new 7 320gb, the 504 160 gb, and the 605 160gb and regularly update the firmware and plugins when needed, rarely leave their docking station in the house and I take care of them as if they were part of my family. As a long time companion of Archos products I can't help but be a little bit disappointed over the years by not only the udderly awful and I do mean "AWFUL" customer service but also the annoyance of costs of all the extra plug-ins, quite often enough unresponsiveness of the touch screen and the recognition of numerous songs that I know damn well are in the same exact format as every other song on my player(I think that is just a glitch as I had the same problem with my 504 and 605). I know I'm storing and categorizing my genre, songs, artist and albums just right as I am the most anal person when it comes to my music being categorized just right. ARCHOS PRODUCTS ARE ALSO VERY VERY VERY SENSITIVE TO STATIC SHOCK AS I'VE HAD TO RETURN MY 504 AFTER ONLY HAVING IT FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AND HAD TO SHELL OUT $197 FOR A NEW HARD DRIVE AND THEY TRIED GETTING ME FOR A BATTERY THEY SAID WASN'T WORKING THOUGH I KNOW IT WAS FOR $60 WHEN BATTERIES ARE ONLY $30 ON THE ARCHOS WEBSITE AND THE HARDDRIVES YOU CAN BY FOR ONLY $65 FROM VARIOUS WEBSITES ONLINE. TheY get you with the labor to install these things, once again I say, "ARCHOS CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AWFUL"! I was a little nervous about installing the hard drive myself so I shelled out the $197 for it but I installed the battery myself as it takes a second to snap on.
A few months ago I purchased the new 7 along with all the plug-ins and I have to say I'm quite impressed by how it looks and what it could do but at the same time the touch response it....
