The Archos 605 allows you to read PDF files, Create your own photo slideshows with music and transition effects, Full player customisation is possible if you download the relevent plug-ins from the manufacturers website, It has a built in loud speaker with high quality sound output which is really loud and clear, A Web navigation function which allows for video playback and streaming with optional Web Browser plug-in available, The WiFi connection allows you to play stored digital files on your computer or download new files direct to the unit, File organisation is made easy with the ARCLibrary software and a TV programme guide is also available with the optional plug-ins.
I purchased my Archos 605 from E-Bay just before christmas and really couldn't be happier with it although it only has a 4gb memory capacity it can be upgraded via an SD memory card it is really easy to use and customise and is compatible with near enough all of the files i have tried playing on it and plug-ins are available for all the files it doesn't play. The WiFi connection is a little slow but is still really usefull as it allows you to download or stream files from almost anywhere however you do need to download the web browser plugin from Archos's website to do this. The screen is a good size for watching films on and is really high quality also the addition of a stand was a great idea as it means that you dont have to hold onto it for an hour and a half while you watch a film. The player software is fast and reliable and i have not experienced any problems with it so far!
All plug-ins for this player are available for purchase from www.archos.com
