    I'm thinkign of buying an Archos 5, but is it really as good as it looks on paper?

    It's quite a lot of money to shell out, so could anyone with expirience with it let me know the score.

    Cheers, TATP
     
  2. If it's got all the specs of the 605WiFi but with a touch screen I'd say it's worth it - but only if you get the docking station thrown in.

    Is it worth getting the remote keyboard aswell?
    Or is it best to just keep with the touch screen keyboard?
     
  4. If the remote is an extra, I'd get it only if you intend to surf with the Archos via the TV - or you intend to do a lot of impromptu recording and playback. The electronic programme guide is so good pre-programming is easy without the remote.

    Not sure about the 5g but the 605 will only record the channel that is on the TV at the time.
