Does anyone know why, or do you know how to play it? Very frustrating.

didn't you know you have to buy an extra plugin for Vonage messages ;)

Re: Thinking of buying Archos need input please!!

I'm really thinking of buying the Archos 7 320 GB and selling my Creative Zen W 60 GB which i've had for quite a while. Now Whats the main difference between Archos 5 and 7? I would think the 7 would be better but someone was talking about Archos releasing Archos 5 Androide. What are some of the be...

Want to update everyone that I am loving my Dell Mini 10 (with HD display and HDMI output) and haven't missed Archos 7 for a day.

Re: At last, my review....

Great Review! You nailed it pretty well w/ all the pros and Cons. I think its time Archos started to see that many of the reviews have the same cons and perhaps start listening to their customers. Such a small gesture will only guarantee more loyal customers and more units sold. A review like yours...

Re: Good ol archos and rma

oh wow that's a new line, i have not heard i guess they laid off a ton of workers and are understaffed which is why the repairs are taking so long I've always said they are understaffed in support area... but to top it all the yhave no good system to keep track / report / monitor the issues anyways

Re: Bye Bye Archos - Bought Dell Mini 10 with HD Video instead

It's given me 3+ hours on regular 3-cell battery and 6+ on 6-cell (bit I won't recommend 6-cell to be your every day battery due to extra weight) Yes, HD videos are playing flawlessly. It's got Atom 1.6GHz processor. And 10v models can be upgraded to 2 GB of RAM (mine is 1GB on Mini 10, and Mini 10'...

Re: Archos 7 160GB - $258 at Amazon.com

I don't know if there are differences between batches. In the US it seemes some of the cheap Archos 5 screens have a cheaper screen on them. I think yo uare right there. When I bought the 'sale price' Archos 5 from newegg and Amazon both came with cheaper matet screens. Speaking with customer servi...

Well - I had double posted on Archos 5 also but 'someone' decided to remove it... well... let's face it. There are netbook options available for much better video reception without being held hostage by Archos :) And my Dell Mini 10 ahs inbuilt HDMI port... so anothe rsaving to NOT having to buy ext...

Bye Bye Archos - Bought Dell Mini 10 with HD Video instead

I tried a lot to like and justify the cost of an Archos. In the end I have finally decided to leave the Archos ship, and am feeling a strange sense of relief basicxally because of : 1. Bad support from the manufacturer on s/w as wel las harware 2. Tons of (and confusing) plugins needed to play video...

Re: Just bought an Archos 5 already have qusetions!!

Please excuse the interruption, but where do I find the Archoslink software to download? I looked on the website, but didn't find it. Or is it only something for use with some of the docks for the A5? Send them an email and they will send you a link. Someone had posted it here earlier... But Archos...

Re: Glossy Archos 5 and Matte Archos 5 - Pictures

After viewing both the matte and glossy screens, I find it interesting that some people like the less accurate picture of the glossy screen. It can clearly be seen in person and in these pictures that the matte screen is far superior in both picture quality and accuracy. The glossy screens don't ha...

Yes, Archos 7 comes with an adapter, and Archos 5 does not.

But as someone else said... you get additional s-video out from the mini-dock, if that helps

Re: Good ol archos and rma

both I would say.

But I must commend on the professionalism and calm of the support staff.

I think the system and company philiosophy is failing the support staff... and I am sure they are out-numbered by the number of people who are calling them
