Well I ordered the Archos 605 30GB version early this morning from Amazon with next day delivery. Got my tracking number today and will see it on Monday. Now if Archos would put up the plug-ins for us to buy, that would make my day.

I was going to wait for the 80GB (3-6 weeks) or the 160GB (In stock soon?), but they seem sold out or delayed.

I just checked the website. I orderd the 605 160GB approx 2 weeks ago. At that time, the site informed me that I would receive my 605 by the 6th of Sept. I just went back today, and learned that I would not receive the 605 until Sept 26-Oct 12. This is with 2 day shipping.

I plan to cancel, and hopefully buy it in a store or online.

Would someone recommend a place to purchase a 160GB 605 in the USA?

One that offers it for approx the same price as Amazon?

Yeah. I saw that the 80GB and 160GB seemed to be delayed past the 1st... so I went with the 30GB for the time being. I'll get a 160 when they become more available. Found out today though that the plug-ins won't be available till the 1st. Guess I'll get familiar with the 605 till then.

BUY.COM is selling it for $395 In addition you can get a $10 off coupon which brings it to $385. And they offer free shipping.

But most importantly it is in stock and ships within 3-5 days, according to the site.

I cancelled with Amazon, an am ordering from Buy.com. It is only 5 dollars more

Well they do charge tax, so that brings it to 27 dollars more. Sorry for jumping the gun.

Let me know if you get confirmation on it being shipped out. Just want to make sure they have it in stock. Everything I have seen so far is telling me that the 80GB and 160GB are not getting released for another few weeks to a month at the earliest.

Amazon just changed the 160GB to "Usually ships within 2 to 4 weeks" and the 80Gb still stands at "Usually ships within 3 to 6 weeks". They keep changing... so I am not sure if they have it in-stock and are sold out or it has been delayed.

I just have that weird feeling that only the 30GB is being released on the 1st and the others will come a month later... like was reported when they were first announced and what Archos was saying all along.

Buy.com have already the 160 GB in stock and ship within 2 days....www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=205014484&SearchEngine=Shopper&SearchTerm=205014484&Type=PE&Category=Elec&Gad=0&dcaid=15889

I will let you know.
First indication from the site is that it is in stock, and will ship on Monday. Today I was informed that my order has been sent to the warehouse to prep for shipping. I will post more info as soon as I receive any.

i have one arriving today as well.

EDIT:

ok, amazon delivers and i just got mine.

I have mine charging thru a wall plug/usb adapter, hopefully that will charge it faster than going thru the usb port.

DOH! I have one of those! I was using USB/computer, but switched to the USB wall adapter. Hopefully a: it's safe to use on the archos, and b: it's faster than USB/computer.

GOT IT. The 605 30GB U.S. model is in my hands as we speak. Amazon comes through with an early release. Now if only Archos would put up the Plug-Ins on their site. Guess we all have to wait till Sunday.

Here are 3 quick photos.

Right out of the box... you will notice how much thinner the unit is compared to the 604 WiFi. As for charging... I am just using the 604 DVR.

Not a problem. Glad to be of help. No if I could get the Plug-Ins and possibly the 160GB version... that would be nice.

Does your non archos wall usb charger charge quickly? And have any other countries received the 80 or 160? If so is the processor sluggish (once you have loaded it up) and is there a kick stand?
