Dan, Bedford Gadget lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
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 well. Touch screen very nice to use... Not as nice as iPod Touch unfortunately.
Bad points:
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 work, not sure if that was just me.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
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 want the DVR docking station and wifi at home to really enjoy this devise. I love the speed with which you can access your email accounts from cold - your laptop would still be loading its operating system by the tme you have replied with the A5.
Bad points:
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.
