Archos AV300 review: Archos AV300


Plays and records audio and video; nice image quality; excellent user interface; wireless remote; interfaces with standard TVs and audio equipment; stores and displays digital photos; 20GB storage capacity.

Heavier and bulkier than hard drive-based MP3 players; no carrying case; you must convert most downloaded video to play it.

This fine portable entertainment device proves that you can take it all with you.

Archos AV320 Review

Archos Video AV320


The idea behind the player is brilliant, but the device feels too first-generation. It’s best to wait until they’re smaller and cheaper, or when a decent PDA can take a bolt-on 20GB hard drive.
