Multimedia, AV Geeks.com sent us in one of their consumer electronics, the Linux-based Archos 604 PMP for a whirl, and we surely gave it one. This 30 GB PMP is the fourth generation video product from Archos, one of the biggest names in that market.

605WiFi

I'm surprised that they sent you a 604WiFi. I have been enjoying my 605 WiFi for a few weeks now. Its basically a cleaned up version of the 704... Some of the new features include better button layout, 800x480 resolution, 160GB HD and better codec support. However there's a catch with some of the codecs/extras. Archos have decided to remove OPERA from the unit. Its now a plugin you must buy separately. The other plugins are the podcast(H.264 AAC sound), the cinema plugin (MPEG-2/VOB 5.1 sound - AC3). Archos Tech support have mentioned they are working on other plugins too, such as Opera Widget support.

Geeks usually carries surplus and refurbished items (new items too of course), so the 605Wifi will be available to Geeks.com reviewers in many months from now.

Archos does not give away review items, journalists only get a 25% discount for a review.
