They just did a side by side comparison. It sounded like a big thumbs up from the reviewer for the 605, and a big load of thumb-prints for the Touch (I think they'd deliberately put fingerprints all over it - but it certainly would've put me off).

Watch it here (the Real version worked for me - the Windows Media version didn't)

Nice review, thanks. Actually pretty balanced.

I was annoyed though that they showed a thinner, low-capacity 605, but described it as a 160GB (not the "fatter" one it should be--of course most vendor web sites do the same). Also liked that they described the two media players...

Guy1: "And how well do these actually fare as media players?"
Guy2: "In their own ways, very well, but very differently."

Newbies, there it is in a nutshell! So stop asking which is the better device!!!!

Alan and Monica--if you're reading--note that the Brits called it the "ARCHOS". S was pretty easy to hear. ;) Who cares how the French pronounce it.

I too found this very frustrating when trying to find a pic of the 160GB model as I wanted to compare the size diff between 160GB 605 and the 160GB 504.

Almost all the websites showed the same standard "stock" photo.

I've never heard it called any different - always heard it pronounced with an "S", even by Archos themselves...

Is this a "Van Go" thing?
